Total Nonstop Action Wrestling/Impact Wrestling (2013, 2015, 2016-2019)
On February 15, 2015, Dennis appeared on TNA's Knockouts Knockdown III in a losing effort against Gail Kim. Dennis again appeared on TNA's April 24, 2015 Impact Wrestling in a match against the debuting Jade of The Doll House. Dennis won by DQ when Marti Belle attacked the referee.
The Lady Squad (2016–2017)
On March 23, 2016, it was announced that Dennis had signed a contract. She was given the new ring name Allie and aligned herself with Maria and Sienna after Allie revealed that she is Maria's apprentice, establishing herself as a heel in the process. A few weeks after her signing, Allie teamed up with Sienna and lost to Gail Kim and Jade in a tag team match. On August 25, 2016, during a special Turning Point edition of Impact Wrestling, Allie turned face and won the TNA Knockouts Championship in a five-way match against the champion Sienna, Madison Rayne, Marti Belle and Jade. Allie would unknowingly pin Madison after being knocked out by Marti Belle with a baton, winning the Knockouts Championship for the first time in her career. On the September 1 episode of Impact, Allie dropped the title to Maria after she was forced to lie down, gaining sympathy from the crowd in the process. Few weeks later, Allie was attacked by Laurel Van Ness, which lead into a match between the two. On the October 27 episode of Impact Wrestling, Allie faced her first singles match against Van Ness in a losing effort.
In the following week, Allie was forced to dress as a pilgrim where she hit Maria with a pumpkin pie. On the December 2 episode of Impact Wrestling, Allie was again attacked by Van Ness after she slapped Maria in the face which led to a match between both of them on the December 9 episode of Impact Wrestling, where Allie revealed her to be "training" with Braxton Sutter, before subsequently winning the match. On the January 5, 2017 episode of Impact Wrestling, Allie faced Sienna where she lost due to interference from Van Ness. On the January 12, 2017 episode of Impact Wrestling, Allie assisted Sutter in getting a victory over Mike Bennett, thus entering him into her feud with Maria. On the February 23, 2017 episode of Impact Wrestling, Allie was forced to be the ring bearer for the wedding of Braxton Sutter (who is Allie's real-life husband) and Van Ness, which ended abruptly, when Sutter rejected the wedding and professed his love for Allie. The following week on Impact Wrestling Maria went to fire Allie, but she responded by quitting, ending their feud after Maria left the company.
Singles competition (2017–2018)
Throughout early 2017, Allie continued her on screen relationship with Sutter, accompanying him to his matches and vice versa. On the May 25 episode of Impact Wrestling, Laurel Van Ness and Sienna would jump Allie, prompting Rosemary to return and save her. Rosemary later explained that "the hive" sent her to protect Allie, beginning an alliance between the two. On the June 8 episode, Allie came out and saved Rosemary from being attacked by Sienna and Van Ness, fending them off with a kendo stick. At Slammiversary, Allie would make an appearance as she chased Van Ness away again with a kendo stick, saving Rosemary from interference during the championship match against Sienna. On August 31, 2017 episode of GFW Impact Wrestling, Allie was attacked by Taryn Terrell backstage which lead into a tag team match between the four. In January 2018, she defeated Van Ness to become Knockouts Champion for the second time.
Rivalry and alliance with Su Yung (2018-2019)
Next Rosemary entered into a feud with Su Yung, a new demonic character who arrived on the scene. Su Yung would go on to defeat Rosemary and place her in a casket which she later set on fire. This sent Rosemary into the Undead Realm. At Bound for Glory XIV when Allie entered the Undead Realm to face Su Yung and save her friend Kiera Hogan, Rosemary appeared and held off Su Yung and her undead bridesmaids long enough so Allie and Kiera could escape. By late 2018 Allie agreed to join the darkness of Su Yung & Father James Mitchell since it was revealed that Allie had given her soul to them in exchange for being allowed to enter the Undead Realm for a chance to save Kiera. This resulted in Allie becoming evil and turning on Kiera.
The following year, Allie's final match in Impact Wrestling was on the March 8, 2019 episode of iMPACT!, during which she teamed with Su Yung and The Undead Maid of Honor in a six-woman tag match lost to Jordynne Grace, Kiera Hogan and Rosemary.
All Elite Wrestling (2019–present)
It was announced on the March 21, 2019 edition of "Road to Double or Nothing" that Allie had signed with All Elite Wrestling (AEW). She debuted at Fyter Fest, defeating Leva Bates after a superkick. At Fight for the Fallen, she was defeated by Brandi Rhodes. Allie also was part of the AEW Women's Casino Battle Royal at All Out getting eliminated at number 16 by eventual winner Nyla Rose after working with Britt Baker to eliminate Rhodes.
On the November 27 episode of AEW Dynamite, Allie debuted a variation of her "Dark Allie" character The Bunny appearing as a manager/valet for her husband The Blade and his partner The Butcher by making an entrance via a hole in the mat of the ring and attacking Cody, turning heel in the process. In May 2020, Allie ceased appearing with The Butcher and The Blade and began a romantic storyline with QT Marshall, thus turning face in the process. On the June 2 episode of AEW Dark, Allie arrived with Marshall to the arena in a corvette and accompanied him to the ring for his match to Brandi and Dustin Rhodes's behest. After a couple of months of managing Marshall and Rhodes, Allie returned to in-ring competition on the June 16 episode of AEW Dark, by teaming with Brandi Rhodes and defeating the team of Kenzie Paige and Red Velvet. Allie and Brandi, now known as "The Nightmare Sisters", entered the Women's Tag Team Cup Tournament, which started on August 3. The Nightmare Sisters advanced to the final, when they were defeated by the team of Diamante and Ivelisse.
On the October 20 episode of AEW Dark, Allie turned heel once again when she returned as The Bunny and aligned with Eddie Kingston's stable, betraying Marshall during his match against Pentagón Jr. On August, 4, 2021, at Homecoming, The Bunny was defeated by Leyla Hirsch in a match to determine the challenger for the NWA World Women's Championship at NWA EmPowerrr. On the November 5 episode of AEW Rampage, The Bunny took part in the AEW women's TBS championship tournament where she faced Red Velvet in the first round and lost. After months of feuding, the Bunny teamed up with Penelope Ford to take on Anna Jay and Tay Conti in a street fight on the December 31 episode of Rampage, which they lost. On February 23, 2022, The Bunny faced Jade Cargill on Dynamite for the AEW TBS Championship which The Bunny lost. On March 30 on Dynamite, The Bunny took part in the Owen Hart Cup where she faced Toni Storm and lost.
On September 21, 2013, Dennis married fellow professional wrestler Jesse Guilmette, better known as The Blade. She has been a vegetarian for ethical reasons since she was 14 years old, and a vegan since late 2014. Dennis was once a long term London, Ontario resident, and as a result it is often mistakenly believed to be her birthplace.
