Gimmick: No longer the happy-go-lucky cheerleader that began her journey in EAW almost a year ago, Caroline is a changed woman. One too many people pushed her limits, tested her drive, and destroyed her sunny disposition. She now sees the wrestling business for what it truly is; a cutthroat world full of egotistical and narcissistic people who will step on anyone to get ahead. She now understands that in order to get ahead, you have to go eye for an eye.
Theme Music: 'Complete Collapse' by Sleeping with Sirens
Special Entrance: Coming soon!
Motivations: Caroline's motivations are simple. She wants to be the best possible competitor she can be and she's not going to let anyone stand in her way.
Tendency to Cheat: If her opponent constantly takes liberties during the match with cheap shots, she will go eye for an eye.
Wrestling Debut: 2022
Favorite Match Types: It's whatever.
Least Favorite Match Types: Ruler's Rules or whatever the fuck that match was that changed everything.
Favorite Weapon: Barbed wire wrapped spirit stick, but if Caroline is in a situation that calls for a weapon, she’s not opposed to grabbing whatever is handy.
Strengths: Caroline’s athleticism, flexibility, and fearlessness are definitely her best attributes. She’s also incredibly smart and is the type of person who learns from her mistakes and becomes better each and every time she’s inside the ring.
Weaknesses: Caroline’s only experience comes from the knowledge she gained at the EAW Performance Center. She never trained on the indies and has virtually no experience when it comes to intergender matches and hardcore wrestling matches. It’s not unrealistic to believe she would be nervous when it comes to experiencing something in wrestling for the first time.
Springboard variations; uppercut, moonsault, leg drop, flipping leg drop, ect; Carolina loves to use the ropes to her advantage so don’t be afraid to be creative and innovative with this

Awards & Accomplishments:
EAW New Breed Champion (won 02.04.2023 at King of Elite; -- defenses)
Caroline is the only child born to Elaine and Jimmy Weatherby. Both are teachers and Jimmy coaches high school football.
A few years ago when Caroline was a junior in high school, her competitive cheerleading team attended the National Cheerleading Championships down in Orlando, Florida. In the crowd, watching his granddaughter compete, was former EAW talent scout, Jeremy Sikes (we say former, because he was busted as part of wrestling’s #MeToo movement and fired, but that’s another story for another day). His pervy eyes were drawn to Caroline and he made sure to seek her out and talk to her about EAW. Her parents quickly sheltered her from Sikes, but he was able to hand Caroline a business card. She didn’t know what EAW was, but she made sure to YouTube it ASAP!
After being inspired by the Beating Hearts of Voltage, Caroline just knew she wanted to pursue a wrestling career. However, her parents forbid her from chasing that dream and they insisted she go to college. She earned a full scholarship to the University of Kentucky for cheerleading, but she only lasted one semester. Caroline dropped out, contacted EAW (only to find out Jeremy had been fired), and begged them for a tryout. Surprisingly, Jeremy had turned over all the information he had on her and EAW was aware of who she was and had footage of her cheerleading. They invited her to the Performance Center and the rest is history!
At the moment, she is not on the best terms with her parents, but she remains positive they eventually come around.
More Coming Soon!
