The former basketball star dropped out of college after she was approached with a chance to become a full time wrestler. The opportunity paid off after she was offered a contract with ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) going by the name Jazzmine. After having great success with ECW, the WWF showed great interest in the upstart and sent her to Ohio Valley Wrestling for training. After her training Jazz signed on with the WWF and was repackaged as Jazz.  Jazz made history in 2002 when the WWF changed its name to WWE, making her the last woman in WWF history to hold the Women’s Championship Belt in the WWF and the first  hold it under the WWE name.
