Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (2007-2010)

Duignan trained under tag team Team 3D at their Team 3D Academy of Professional Wrestling and Sports Entertainment in Kissimmee, Florida. She made her professional wrestling debut in 2007.

Her most prolific ring name in the independent circuit is Betsy Ruth. Billed as the great granddaughter of Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Babe Ruth, much of her gimmick involves her wearing pin stripes like the New York Yankees and wearing face paint similar to the Baseball Furies gang from the film, The Warriors.

Duignan signed with World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW) in late 2008. Making her debut with the ring name Betsy Ruth, she was part of the WXW Women's Elite 8 Tournament in 2008, but lost to eventual tournament winner Mercedes Martinez. In the 2009 tournament, Ruth defeated Josie in the first round, Kimberly in the semifinals, and Sarona Snuka in the finals to win the Elite 8. At the January 9, 2010 edition of WXW, Ruth faced Kimberly to determine the next WXW Women's Champion but was unsuccessful.

Wrestlicious (2009-2010)

Duignan took part in the first season tapings of Wrestlicious, performing under the ring name Sister Ophelia as the manager of the Naughty Girls (Charity, Faith and Hope). The team made their debut on the fifth episode, where Faith and Hope were defeated by Paige Webb and Charlotte in a tag team match.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2010)

On April 20, 2010, Duignan wrestled a tryout dark match for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) under the ring name Miss Betsy, during which she accidentally injured her opponent, Daffney. On May 12, it was announced Duignan had signed a deal with TNA. On the June 3 edition of Impact! Duignan made her debut as a face using the ring name Rosie Lottalove, losing to Roxxi, after refusing to take advantage of an interference from the TNA Women's Knockout Champion Madison Rayne. Afterward, Lottalove knocked-out Rayne and claimed that she would take down her alliance, The Beautiful People altogether. However, after wrestling only two more matches for TNA, one a non-televised match and the other on TNA Xplosion, Lottalove's profile was removed from the company's official website on August 19, 2010, confirming her departure from TNA.

Japan (2011-2012)

On May 15, 2011, Duignan made her debut for Japanese promotion World Woman Pro-Wrestling Diana, working under the ring name Andrea Mother and defeating Kyoko Inoue in the main event.
