Early Life

While growing up, Sydney actually actually didn't have a great interest in wrestling. She actually wanted to be a professional hockey player, but, when she was twelve, wrestling just took over and she wanted to be a wrestler.

Wrestling Career

Sydney made her wrestling career on Monday Night Raw in 2008 where she ended up facing the then-Womens Championship Beth Phoenix where she did one of those 'backstage challenges', and won her match. Sydney and Beth went to have a rivarly for the rest of 2008, where they had a match for the Women's Championship, where Sydney successfully took the title from Beth.

A week after the 2009 WWE Draft, her and Haylie Trudel fomed the tag team 'The Long Island Canadian', where their first match as a tag team, they'd faced the team of Beth Phoenix and Jillian Hall and won that match.

At the 2009 Breaking Point pay-per-view, she had lost the Womens Championship to a Diva which Sydney had quoted to 'not had deserved a Womens Championship match'.

After Michelle McCool had unified the Divas and Womens Championships at Night Champions in 2010, a week after on Monday Night Raw, Michelle had granted Sydney a title shot. Sydney won the match by DQ, but haven't recieved the championship because of the DQ, which was by inteference by Layla.

In 2011, along with Haylie, Sydney was drafted to Smackdown, where she was automatically put into a feud with Lucia Croft becuase Lucia said that she didn't deserve to be in the WWE.
