Professional wrestling career

Impact Pro Wrestling (2007–2015)

Evie made her professional wrestling debut in December 2007 for the Auckland based company, Impact Pro Wrestling.

Pro Wrestling Alliance Australia (2012–2016)

In September 2011, she debuted in Sydney, Australia based Pro Wrestling Alliance Australia (PWA Australia) for their annual PWWA show, where she defeated Kellie Skater. In August 2012, Evie became the first ever Impact Pro Wrestling NZ Women's Champion, defeating Britenay and Megan-Kate in a triple threat match.
