From the time she was very young, everyone knew Jade was an individual. Jade was born in Oak Park, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, in late summer 1978. Her mother was a professional women's boxer in a time that being a female boxer wasn't all that popular. Her father was a local professional indy wrestler who's claim to fame was getting his ass kicked by Jimmy Snuka at the Joe Louis arena.
Her family struggled constantly, living off the unpredictable and quite unsubstancial wages of a small time wrestler and an occasionally fighting boxer. Jade grew up traveling from town to town watching her father wrestle, and her mother beat the hell out of any chick that stepped in the ring with her. Though it wasn't an ideal life for a little girl, Jade reveled in the blood and guts of these most violent of professions.
When Jade was about 10 years old, her father's wrestling career began to dwindle and her mother had to quit boxing for good. They moved from their home in Oak Park to the ghettos of Southwest Detroit where Jade quickly learned how rough life could get for a white girl in the hood.
Jade was smart, and adapted quickly to this kill or be killed lifestyle of the street. She found her place amongst a group of what society called anti-socials. These "misfits" were quite unique. They were into everything that society said wasn't right. Wrestling, psycopathic and horror music, skateboarding, tattoos and piercings. They never got into the fashions and styles of the day. They were themselves, regardless of what people thought of them.
This group eventually started up their own gang. They weren't reckognized as a gang. They never stole or robbed, or got into drugs, and certainly didn't get the respect of a gang, but they didn't want it anyway. They did what they wanted to do, and weren't scared of anyone or anything. They'd walk the streets like thugs, making fun of real gang members. They'd get their asses kicked most of the time, but every once in a while, they won.
After a couple of years of this, these social rejects were just regarded as a joke, or "target practice" in most cases, by the real gangstas of Detroit. Jade and her friends just didn't care, and because of this, they were tougher and harder than anyone on the streets. They weren't going to let a few bullets flying over their heads tell them what they were going to do. They all had the same view on life. They had nothing to lose. Everything was a joke to them, and they had nothing they cared about.
Jade's parents, now both working 12 hours a day to keep afloat, found out about what their little girl and her friends had gotten themselves into, and were worried. They tried talking to her, but again, Jade just didn't care. Her parents hadn't talked to her for the past 9 years, when she really needed them, so why listen now, at 19 years old? After many months of trying to get through to Jade, they realized she was in desparate need of a reason to live.
They thought about the things she had loved more than anything as a child, and came to the determination that wrestling was what brought her the most happiness. Her father decided the only way to keep his daughter alive was to get her out of Detroit. He called up his old friend Tugboat Taylor in Houston and spoke with him about training Jade to become a wrestler. The next day, with much resistance, Jade was on a bus to Houston.
When she got to Houston, Tug was at the bus station to pick her up. At first glance, he saw the fire in her eyes and knew he had a star on his hands. The long bus ride down had given Jade plenty of time to think, and evaluate the situation. Though she wasn't happy about being taken away from her friends and the only life she had known, she knew she was here to become a wrestler, and was actually somewhat looking forward to it.
Jade was a natural. Everything Tug was teaching her was like second nature to her. After a few days, she was better than half the guys she was training with. Six months went by, and Jade was fully trained and certified as a professional wrestler.
Now Jade travels all over the world wrestling, and is considered one of the very best female wrestlers around. Her mother and father couldn't be happier for her, and her friends from Detroit often keep her company on the road. Jade is at the top of her game, and no one will stand in her way.
