In 1984 Nancy Daus made her debut into Pro-Wrestling as
'Fallen Angel' in Florida Championship Wrestling. She
was part of Kevin Sullivan's Army of Darkness faction
(The Satanists) as a valet and in 1985 married Kevin Sullivan.
There she had a slave/master relationship with Kevin Sullivan,
and on occasions she was beaten by Kevin Sullivan. Perhaps
one of her memorable moments of that time was her jealousy
for 'The Lock' (Winona Little Heart), competing for the
attention of Kevin Sullivan. The two broke out into catfights
on numerous occasions. As the Fallen Angel, she was also
actively involved in match-ups by providing inferences
and distractions. She worked for Florida Championship
Wrestling until 1987. Previous to her debut as a valet
she modeled in pro-wrestling magazine wrestling All Stars
and as "Para" in an 'Apartment Wrestling' feature in a
Sports Review Wrestling magazine. This was all due to
her husband at the time; Jim Daus, being involved in wrestling.
It was her stunning looks that got the 5'4" beauty into
the business, however as she continued in wrestling, an
even more vicious vixen emerged.
1989, she appeared in WCW (NWA) as a fan of Rick Steiner
known as Robin Greene. A love angle came into play as
Rick Steiner fell in love with Robin however; Robin Green's
innocent was nothing but a conning, calculated woman.
After causing The Steiner Brothers to loose a huge match-up
she left Rick to manage the masked team of Doom (Ron Simmons
and Butch Reed) as well as being associated with Nitron
(Tyler Mane: Sabretooth in X-Men) who was her bodyguard.
A feud between Doom and the Steiners was in order. From
that point she took on the name "Woman."
Her time with Doom and Nitron did not last; in 1990 Woman
was aligned with The Four Horsemen, mainly The Nature
Boy Ric Flair but later left WCW (NWA). Nancy returned
to the Independent circuit including Jim Cornette's Smokey
Mountain Wrestling as Devil Angel, along with Kevin Sullivan.
She also managed D.C. "Mad Dog" Drake to winning the Tri-State
heavyweight title in 1990 and also Larry Winters and Johnny
Hotbody to capture the Tri-State tag team championships.
Soon after, she found herself in ECW in 1993 where she
managed the tag team of Kevin Sullivan and The Tazmaniac,
who became tag team champions. She later managed The Sandman
and 2 Cold Scorpio, who also won the ECW Tag-Team titles.
Her time with The Sandman was perhaps one of the most
notable associations in her career.
After her ECW stint, she returned to WCW in 1996. At first
she was part of Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage's entourage,
however she quickly returned to being aligned with The
Four Horsemen. Other women such as Miss Elizabeth & Debra
McMichaels were also part of the alliance. After an on
television romance with Horsemen member Chris Benoit,
they developed a real life relationship and Woman divorced
Kevin Sullivan and later married Christ Benoit.
Woman retired from wrestling after her time in WCW ended
in 1997, and gave birth to a child with Chris Benoit in
2000 named Daniel. At the WWE's Wrestlemania XX Pay Per
View, Nancy celebrated in the ring with Chris Benoit after
he won the World Heavyweight Title.
Horrible news broke on June 25th, 2007 was it was reported
that Nancy, Chris Benoit and their son Daniel were found
dead at their home in Atlanta. It was later revealed that
the incident was a murder suicide; Chris Benoit murdered
Nancy and their son and then hung himself. Reports reported
that Nancy died on June 22nd.
Woman paved the way for wrestling valets. Her death came
just a week after the loss of another great trailblazer;
Sensation Sherri Martel.
