- CyberSpace Wrestling Federation Women's
- 2003 TNA Knockout of the Year.
Trinity, this 5'7 green eyed beauty, doubled for the likes
of Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lopez, making them look like
a million bucks when it came to getting down and dirty,
before getting into the wrestling business. She was successful
at everything she tried, but wrestling was a passion that
could not go unnoticed, and she entered herself in a wrestling
school and trained hard to be her best. In a years time,
she had the Independent circuit talking, wrestling the likes
of Beth Phoenix, Simply Luscious, and Mercedes Martinez.
She later debut in NWA-TNA in January of 2003.

In NWA-TNA Trinity partnered with Kid Kash, which helped
to elevate his popularity. Along
with Kash, she had her first feud with Sonny Siaki and Desire.
During this time she had confrontations with Desire on many
occasions and pinned her on various occasions. The feud
was put to rest when Trinity's man Kash pined Sonni Siaki
to become the New X-Division Champion, with of course thanks
to Trinity. Kash soon begun to get jealous of her and it
was that jealousy which forced Trinity to venture on her
own, fighting any female that steeped up to the plate. Trinity
took on the likes on Malia Hosaka, Mickie James, ODB, Tracy
Brooks and Jacqueline Moore.
In January of 2006, Stephanie Finochio signed a developmental
contract with WWE, and would later that year debut in ECW's
2006 ONE NIGHT STAND, with an ECW entourage of superstars,
celebrating with Rob Van Dam to the end of the show. Following
that, on June 13th, 2006 on ECW's first show on Sci Fi,
she accompanied the Full Blooded Italians and would from
then on be their manager.
During this time, she appeared in 'Diva' segments, and contests,
however nothing substantial. Her most notable appearances
took place on October 10th 2006: ECW on Sci Fi, as she participated
in a series of Extreme Strip Poker segments and October
31, 2006, participating in an Extreme Halloween Costume
Contest -- with police tape as a bra; in which she sported
in numerous photo shoots.
In June of 2007, Finochio was released from her WWE contract.
This was inevitable seeing as Trinity did not fit the mold
of the WWE Diva look. Despite being a credible wrestler,
she was sent down the eye candy road, when she should have
been on raw reigning as WWE Women's Champion. She met the
same faith of Jazz -- who returned to World Wrestling Entertainment
to be part of the ECW brand. During Trinity's time in the
WWE, she faced Jazz at WWE house shows, as well as teamed
up with Kelly Kelly to take on Jillian Hall and Michelle
McCool at live events. After the WWE, she retried from wrestling,
and made sporadic appearances. On Saturday September 20,
2008, she and Fantasy lost to Peggy Lee Leather -- in a
AWA World-1 South match. Years later, on March 17, 2013,
she made a big TNA Wrestling appearance during the taping
of the TNA's Knockouts Knockdown “One Night Only” Pay Per
View, where she lost to ODB.
