Ashley Simmons began her wrestling career in 2005, training with Jeff Cannon in Ohio Championship Wrestling (OCW)--located in Coshocton, Ohio (October 19th, 2008 - Lethalwow.com Interview). Shortly after, she wrestled her first match (April 9, 2005) as "Lexi Lane"--versus Jayme Braxton, with 3-Time WWE Women's Champion Ivory as the special guest referee. "As if a first match doesn't make someone nervous enough, mine was at my old high school, with all my family and friends there, and Ivory as the special guest referee for the match," she told Lethalwow.com. She continued, "It was so much fun though...she was incredible to work with and she really helped us out that night." Lexi Lane went on to become the first ever OCW Women’s Champion in 2007.

2007 was also the year Ashley made her debut in Shimmer Women Athletes, losing in a tag team match with Lorelei Lee against Portia Perez and Nicole Matthews--on DVD Volume 15. She went on to team up with Nevaeh in Shimmer, with the duo picking up their first victory by defeating The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew (Lacey & Rain) on DVD Volume 18. The two went on to make Shimmer history, becoming the first-ever Shimmer Tag Team Champions after defeating The Experience (Lexie Fyfe & Malia Hosaka) on Volume 21, in a six-team tag team gauntlet match (October 19, 2008). Ashley and Nevaeh, often know as The Ohio Girls, went on the successfully defend the belts against Portia Perez & Nicole Matthews (Shimmer Volume 22), and Hellena Heavenly & Sassy Stephie (IPW - November 1st, 2008).

Earlier that year, on April 19, 2008, Ashley appeared for Shimmer's sister promotion Ring of Honor. There she competed in a Four Corner Survival match along with Daizee Haze, Lacey, and MsChif. She returned on December 6, 2008, in a 4-way match against Daizee Haze, Sara Del Rey, and Serena Deeb.
