Kaitlyn broke into the biz from the world of body fitness modeling in 2010, when she reported to Florida Championship Wrestling. She then made her proper WWE television debut as the replacement for Isis the Amazon in the third season of NXT in 2010. She won that season and the segued to the main roster, forging a friendship both on and off camera with one AJ Lee. Their team was named The Chickbusters, and it served as a pivot into feuding when Lee aligned with Dolph Ziggler and Big E. She pretty much was part of the churn on the pre-Women's Revolution women's division, and she departed from the company before Paige and then the Horsewomen from NXT were able to start it in earnest.
Since her departure from WWE, she's remained in contact with her buds from the company, stopping in backstage from time to time and continuing with social media hijinx with Big E. She also dedicated herself to posting just the most thirst-inducing pictures on her social media accounts, but I'll stop there for fear of really getting into objectifying the woman. She, however, announced that she was training for a return to wrestling late in 2017 after admitting that she had some stuff go bad in her personal life, and that she missed the business. She wrestled mostly for a promotion called Coastal Championship Wrestling based in Florida, where she most notably wrestled against second-generation wrestler and participant in last year's Mae Young Classic, Rachel Ellering.
Kaitlyn makes a return not dissimilar to Serena Deeb last year. While her hiatus from wrestling wasn't forced by injury, she still comes in with considerable rust. However, regardless of how good her matches are in the upcoming tournament, it's great to see her back in a high profile.
