WWE Diva Ivory - Part 3

In early 2002, Moretti served as a trainer in the second series of Tough Enough. After the World Wrestling Federation was renamed "World Wrestling Entertainment" and the roster was split into two "brands", RAW and SmackDown!, Moretti was drafted to the SmackDown! brand. She briefly feuded with Tough Enough winner Linda Miles before leaving WWE television to travel the world promoting WWE house shows. Along with several other SmackDown! wrestlers, Moretti was traded to RAW in exchange for The Big Show in November 2002. Throughout the remainder of 2002, she teamed with Victoria and feuded with Trish Stratus.

Throughout 2003, Moretti wrestled sporadically in the women's division, challenging for the Women's Championship on several occasions. Her only pay-per-view appearance in the course of the year was on December 14 at Armageddon 2003, where she unsuccessfully challenged Molly Holly for the Women's Championship. She also served as a trainer in the third series of Tough Enough. Ivory's last match in WWE was during an episode of Heat in late December 2003, where she fought Victoria in a #1 Contenders Match. However, Victoria won the match with the Widow's Peak.

In early 2004, Moretti spent nine weeks working as a trainer at the WWE developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling. In May 2004, she and Todd Grisham began hosting WWE Experience, a weekly television show that recapped events from RAW and SmackDown!. In January 2005, Moretti's contract was restructured to reflect her role as an announcer, and the new contract entitled her to wrestle on the independent circuit. WWE Experience was cancelled in August 2005. On July 22, 2005, several weeks before WWE Experience ended, WWE announced that Moretti's contract would not be renewed.

After leaving WWE, Moretti began working in the landscaping industry. Following Hurricane Katrina, she became involved in charity work aimed at assisting the victims of hurricanes. Moretti also wrestled sporadically on the independent circuit (under her own name, as WWE had trademarked "Ivory"). On November 19, 2005 in Spartanburg, South Carolina at "A Tribute to StarrCade", she teamed with Bambi to defeat Team Blondage (Krissy Vaine and Amber O'Neal) for the CCW Tag Team Championship. On April 21, 2006 in Surrey, British Columbia, Moretti defeated Rebecca Knox for the SuperGirls Championship. She lost the title to Nattie Neidhart on October 8, 2006, in Newark, California.
