Kristina Laum, currently residing in Maple Shade Township, New Jersey, was a professional wrestling valet and manager in ECW and WCW. She used the names Kimona Wanalaya (sometimes spelled Kimona Wanaleia) and Leia Meow.

Kristina Laum was asked by her friend Raven to go into professional wrestling while she was working as a dancer at a club.

Kristina started in ECW in 1996 as Kimona Wanalaya. She was Raven's valet and would occasionally get into catfights with his opponents' valets. She would often provide semi-sexual entertainment for the fans. Laum performed a striptease at one ECW event in order to appease a rowdy crowd. She also engaged in a (then shocking) lesbian kiss with Beulah McGillicutty, which shocked Tommy Dreamer, Beulah's boyfriend.

Laum later left ECW and worked for Jersey All Pro Wrestling for a while as Kimona. She was signed by WCW in 1999, but they didn't know what to do with her for several months. She eventually debuted alongside The Varsity Club (Kevin Sullivan, Mike Rotunda and Rick Steiner) as the cheerleader, Leia Meow. She was forced to do pushups and to jump on a trampoline at ringside whenever they demanded it.

This angle soon ended and she became the manager for the "Jung Dragons" (Jamie-San, Yun Yang and Kaz Hayashi). She would interfere in matches with a flying bodypress off of the top rope onto their opponents. She also had a dominatrix gimmick and carried a whip. She used it to attack Pamela Paulshock after Paulshock had won the "Miss WCW" contest that Meow participated in on September 25, 2000. She was then attacked by Midajah and had a brief rivalry with her leading to a fight on the following Thunder during Mike Awesome's Lava Lamp Lounge segment.

By the time WCW was sold to Vince McMahon, she had been fired from WCW due to roster cuts.

She went to the X Wrestling Federation where she was a member of the X-Girls, a dance team that included Gorgeous George and Chiquita Anderson of the Nitro Girls. She was known as Kris during her time in XWF. When XWF folded, Kristina retired from wrestling.
