From the Piece:
“The arrival of a brand new women’s wrestling promotion has awarded numerous upstarts in the Florida area the opportunity to rebrand & launch their careers. One woman seems to be leading the pack, and she has all the stamina in the world to stay the distance.

Reby Sky has gone from wrestling ring decoration to impressive & competent fighter since joining the freshly launched SHINE organization. In its early existence, Sky has risen from the depths of the undercard to become a prominent member part of SHINE, already embroiled in a rivalry with Midwest Militia member & WSU champion Jessicka Havok. 

The magnificent Sky first entered the world of professional wrestling two years ago as part of MTV’s on-going series Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors. Reby’s first role was not inside the ring, instead standing by as the event hostess. Within months, however, Sky migrated into the ring where she made her debut against former WWE Women’s Champion, Jacqueline. 

Though Reby has opened the door to opportunity, she has found difficulty establishing herself as a professional wrestler. “Identifying myself as a wrestling – as opposed to a model – is a Catch 22″, explained Reby in an interview with TheSmokingJacket.com. She continued, “Casual wrestling fans are either disappointed or surprised I’m not a She-Hulk and diehard wrestling fans hold the fact that I model against me”. 

It has been an uphill battle for Sky, especially given her public relationship with former WWE & TNA star, Matt Hardy. Drawing the unwanted negative attention of fans could have been enough to call it a day, but Reby insists it spurs her on. “We have a ring at home. Sometimes we’re in there training & sometimes we’re fighting for real”, said Reby Sky to Univision when asked about her relationship with the former WWE United States Champion. 

The attention Reby Sky has been receiving lately has catapulted her into the women’s divisions of numerous companies. Dubbing herself as the “Diva Overachiever” certainly sets the bar high, but so far, she’s clearing it.”
