A very pretty young lady with a great figure, Blank modeled bikinis for Hawaiian Tropic and Venus Swimwear.
“[WWE] saw me in the Venus Swimwear catalog and called my agent at the time and said they were interested,” she recalled, “and being that I had an athletic background -- my agent told them I was athletic, I was a gymnast -- WWE sent me out for a tryout, had me come down for a week, and that’s how I got hired.
[she chuckles]” Former ECW original and WWE superstar Tommy Dreamer became her big brother, helping her transition into the pro wrestling/sports entertainment world. So for a 19-year-old, it was a lot.” On the flipside, Blank loved performing.
I was nervous, but that was fun.” John Laurinaitis, who signed her, Rob Van Dam, Sandman also assisted in her maturation process. When we started dating, I got into it and started cheering him on, and I became his No.1 fan.” Turnabout is fair play.
A 19-year-old fresh out of high school involved in the macho world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment, she had lots to learn inside and outside the squared circle. He did not know much about WWE, a place she called home from 2006-12. “If you watch Summer Slam in 2011, he was front row with my mom, and he had a [pink] shirt on with my signature, standing in the front row, and I went over and hugged him and kissed him, and he was all excited. We support each other.” The happy couple (Blank and Souray) met through a mutual friend in Tampa, where Blank lived.
“I met him through a mutual girlfriend I was living in Tampa at the time.
He had a hockey game that next day, so my girlfriend invited me to go to dinner with a bunch of people and he was there and immediately I felt sparks! The couple started dating a few years back and they got engaged in 2014.
“He kind of took me under his wing and definitely helped me out a lot,” she said. “So I definitely miss performing in front of the fans, but [WAGS] is a way to kind of entertain still, do my own thing and let fans see where I am now, after [WWE].” Blank was into pro wrestling/sports entertainment. “Hockey was not big in Florida, so I never really understand or was into it,” she said.
