Sharmell Sullivan-Huffman (born November 2, 1970) is an American professional wrestling valet currently working for TNA Wrestling. She is best known for her work with the WWE until her release in 2007. She first came to prominence in the wrestling world as a member of the WCW dance troupe the Nitro Girls.
Sullivan won the Miss Black America pageant in 1991. After winning the title, Sullivan began a career in professional dance, touring with several hip hop artists and R&B bands, including a 3½ year stint with James Brown.
Sullivan joined WCW 's Nitro Girl dance troupe in December 1998 under the name Storm. When the Nitro Girls began becoming more involved in WCW storylines, she was made the valet for The Artist, re dubbing herself Paisley (to match The Artist's Prince Gimmick). As Paisley, she made her in-ring singles debut against Tammy Lynn Sytch on the April 26, 2000 edition of WCW Thunder, winning with a DDT. Following The Artist's release from WCW, Sullivan began valeting for Kwee Wee. She also formed an alliance with fellow former Nitro Girl Tygress, and the two ladies frequently double-teamed the Misfits In Action's valet Major Gunns.
While in WCW, Sullivan was also a part of the pop music group Diversity 5 with other Nitro Girls Fyre, Spice, Chae, and Tygress. In 2001, when she signed with the WWF, she was replaced in the group by Chiquita Anderson (also a Nitro Girl).
In 2001, just before WCW was bought by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Sullivan was released from WCW and signed a developmental contract with WWF with the intent of becoming a full-time in-ring performer. She was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling to continue her training, and was made the valet for The Suicide Blondes - wearing a blonde wig and using the name Sister Sharmell. She also made some appearances on the main roster show, SmackDown!, as a backstage interviewer using her real name. Her training, however, was cut short by a knee injury, and she subsequently retired from in ring work.

Pro wrestler Jessica Kresa (better known as ODB) currently works for TNA Wrestling.
Other than her current role as a TNA Knockout (she's a former three time TNA Women's Knockout Champion), Jessica is best known for her work in WWE's developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW).
Jessica's athletic background isn't in wrestling like some other female wrestlers, but in ice hockey. Jessica was so good, that she was the captain of the first girls team at her high school and she also played at St. Cloud State University (in Minnesota) for two years.
She got her start in pro wrestling when she tried out for the first season of WWE's reality show, WWE Tough Enough.
Jessica made the top 25, but missed the final cut for the show.
After returning home to Minnesota, she began training with Eddie Sharkey, Dan Schaffner and Terry Klinger and made her pro wrestling debut in 2001.
In 2004 Jessica began feuding with Trinity in TNA (Total Nonstop Action Wrestling).
In June 2006, Kresa started working in OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) there she created the OVW Women's Wrestling Championship because OVW didnt have a women's champion at the time.
OVW eventually recognized the title and ODB defended it, losing it to Katie Lea in a Gauntlet Match on November 1st, 2006.
Jessica won the title back, but lost it to Milena Roucka (Rosa Mendes) in a Six-Way Match on September 20th, 2007.
She lost the belt because TNA had contracted her, making her the first OVW Divas that went to TNA rather than the WWE.
