While growing up, Nicole was very athletic where she would usually play basketball, volleyball and soccer, and among the sports she played, her main focus was wanting to become a wrestler in the WWE.
Nicole made her WWE debut on the third season of WWE NXT, where she was a Rookie to Zack Ryder and Sydney Copeland. Nicole was one of the rookie Divas that was 'flying under the radar' by not having a lot of the attention focused on her like the other Divas were. Nicole won her debut match against WWE Pro Natalya as she snook a pinfall attempt.
Nicole went on to have a winning streak up till the point where she was one of the final four Rookies of the season (along with Krista Dumas, Chana Mizanin, and Janelle Hardy), before being the first of the four to be eliminated.
She currently competes in FCW, while appearing on the dark matches on both Raw and Smackdown.
Nicole is the younger sister of WWE Superstar Zack Ryder. Nicole has a tattoo of her late best friend Chelsea's name on her left shoulder blade.
Siblings: Zack Ryder (brother), Sydney Copeland (sister in-law), Edge (brother in-law)
