Azrael Myka Victoria (born April 6, 1980) is an American professional wrestler. She is signed to WWE competing on its SmackDown brand where she is the first ever Ms. Money in the Bank which she can cash in anytime within the next year. Victoria is a third-generation professional wrestler; her grandfather Jason “Jay” Victoria, father “Priceless” Dimitri Victoria, Mother Rose “Roza” Victoria, and great-uncle Grant “G” Victoria all competed in the professional wrestling industry.</p>
Before being promoted to the main World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) roster with fellow third-generation wrestler Randy Orton, Victoria trained in the basement of her Knoxville home, being taught by her parents while she was still in high school. She was then sent with Orton to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) where she held the OVW Women’s Championship on one occasion.
After signing with WWF, Victoria and Orton became members of the stable Evolution, which led to her first moniker “The Legend Killer Diva” for disrespecting Hall of Famers and helping Orton to physically attack veterans outside of appropriate restrictions. At age 24, Victoria became the first third-generation Diva to hold the Women’s Championship. With this win, Victoria, along with Orton, departed from Evolution and a feud with her former stablemates began. In 2006, both Orton and Victoria joined forces with Edge in a tag team known as Rated-RKO. Victoria tagged with Lita in Diva’s tag team matches until she left the team.
Professional wrestling careerEdit
World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWE) (2002-present)Edit
Evolution and Women's Champion (2002-2005)Edit
Victoria debuted in the WWE in April of 2002 on SmackDown with her best friend Randy Orton. She even walked down to the ring with him. In September of that year, both Azrael & Orton were drafted to RAW where Orton defeated Stevie Richards in his debut match after Azrael distracted Richards. A few months later, Azrael & Orton joined Evolution, which had the then-World Heavyweight Champion Triple H, Ric Flair, Batista, Lissa Harkness, and then-Women's Champion Seras Ride. While part of Evolution, Azrael made her in-ring debut against the woman who beat Seras for the Women's title, Trish Stratus.
She won the match after a distraction by Seras. Later on, she tag teamed with Lissa Harkness, claiming that Harkness was her (kayfabe) identical twin sister. They teamed up on multiple occasions until, in July 2004, Trish revealed that the pair weren't twin sisters, which caused a tiny division between the pair and, ultimately, the end of their tag team.
At SummerSlam 2004, Azrael beat Trish to become the Women's Champion for the first time. That same night, Orton defeated Chris Benoit to become the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history. The following night on RAW, Orton & Azrael were dropped by the jealous members of Evolution. Seras even hit Azrael with her own title.
Various feuds, Rated RKO, and Extreme Legend (2005-2007)Edit
Orton & Azrael dropped the titles at Unforgiven. In February 2005 while Orton briefly feuded with Christian, Azrael appeared to be friends with Orton's on-screen girlfriend Stacy Keibler, which pleased Orton. The pair even teamed together on one occasion against Victoria and Mickie James. When they lost the match, Azrael Liplocked Stacy. When Orton confronted her about it, Azrael apologized. The next week, Azrael caught Orton and Stacy kissing backstage.
Later on during Stacy's match, Azrael interfered in her match, causing Stacy to lose by disqualification. She repeatedly attacked Stacy for the next few weeks, until, on the February 28 episode of RAW, Stacy confronted her backstage and asked Azrael why she was attacking her. Azrael simply stated that she would say the reason later on that night. After Orton stated that he would be the one to end The Undertaker's streak, Azrael admitted that she was jealous of Orton's relationship with Stacy. Then she admitted that she loved Orton and had loved him ever since Evolution's party after Armageddon 2003.
Azrael then claimed that she was justified in attacking Stacy because of this. She then watched the footage of herself attacking Stacy with a smirk on her face. After the footage was over, Azrael stated that, during her's and Stacy's first tag team match, she was the one doing all the work during the match, while Stacy did nothing but stand there and look pretty. Stacy then came out and argued with Azrael, stating that it was Azrael's fault they lost that match. Azrael slapped Stacy and hit her with another Liplock, starting Azrael's second heel run with the company.
Stacy and Azrael continued to feud while vying for Orton's attentions into March 2005. During this time, Orton taunted The Undertaker, claiming that he was unafraid of him. Azrael's feud with Stacy ended on the March 21 episode of RAW, where Orton turned heel once more after he delivered an RKO to Stacy, knocking her unconscious. Azrael smirked and whispered in Stacy's ear, “I told you, Stacy, I always get what I want.”
Azrael stayed by Orton's side during his feud with The Undertaker, along with Orton's father, “Cowboy” Bob Orton. Azrael even interfered in Orton's match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 21, which Orton lost despite both Azrael and his father's interferences, but Orton and his father, with help from Azrael, defeated The Undertaker in a Handicap Casket match. After the match, Orton, “Cowboy” Bob, and Azrael burned the casket The Undertaker was in. Azrael sat at ringside for the RAW vs SmackDown match at Survivor Series, a bout that Team SmackDown won by Orton pinning Shawn Michaels. After the match, The Undertaker, who had been “killed” by Orton on an episode of SmackDown, returned by emerging from a flaming casket.
On SmackDown, Orton, his father, and Azrael challenged The Undertaker to a match at Armageddon. The Undertaker accepted the match, made it into a 2-on-1 Handicap Hell in a Cell match, and offered that, if he lost, he would retire from WWE. He also added, in order for the match to be fair, that Azrael be handcuffed to the cell until the match ended. On the December 16 episode of SmackDown, The Undertaker entered the ring to deliver a promo while two of his druids appeared to be standing in the ring. Orton surprised The Undertaker with an RKO.
The druids revealed themselves to be Orton's father and Azrael. Orton's father gave him The Undertaker's urn. At Armageddon, The Undertaker defeated both Ortons, ending their nine month long feud. In late 2005, Azrael had a match against Seras to find out who would be the number one contender for the Women's title. Dimitri Victoria, Azrael's father, was the Special Guest Referee. On the day of the match, Azrael went to punt her former mentor, but Dimitri stopped her and Seras pulled the win. The next night, when Azrael demanded an explanation for his actions, Dimitri told her that he found out two weeks before the match that Seras was her sister.
At the 2006 Royal Rumble, Azrael came out with Orton for the Royal Rumble match, who came out at number 30. Even with multiple distractions by Azrael, Orton was eliminated by Rey Mysterio.
In the weeks before No Way Out, both Azrael & Orton urged Mysterio to put his title shot at stake in a match at No Way Out, which he did. Orton won the match at No Way Out, but General Manager Theodore Long re-added Mysterio to the WrestleMania 22 World Heavyweight title match, making it a Triple Threat match. At WrestleMania 22, Mysterio won the match after pinning Orton following a West Coast Pop, making him World Heavyweight Champion. Azrael came out with Orton again during his grudge match against the former World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle following the pay-per-view, which Angle won after Orton tapped to the Ankle Lock, which broke (kayfabe) Orton's ankle. This covered for Orton's sixty day suspension.
While Orton was out, Azrael updated everyone on his “recovery,” recreating Orton's RNN and causing Azrael to gain villain heat. Near the end of Orton's suspension, she got into a verbal feud with Angle, who had been drafted to ECW. During this, she attempted to go to the Diva's locker room on SmackDown, but Long told her she didn't belong on the brand. On the night Orton returned from his suspension, she came out during Angle's match and said that his match wasn't important. Then she announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, the Legend Killers are back on RAW!”
Orton then came out and started to trash talk Angle, saying that it was tragic that Angle went from main eventing WrestleMania to ECW. While Orton feuded with Angle, Azrael stuck by Orton, occasionally interfering in their matches whenever Orton was losing. On June 30, Azrael competed against Lissa Harkness, a match she won by count-out after she viciously DDT'd Lissa to the arena floor. The pair continued their feud until two masked Divas started mysteriously attacking them.
They were eventually revealed to be Seras Ride and Lita. Ride's and Lita's attacks led up to a Diva's Tag Team match at Vengeance, which was won by Azrael and Lissa by pinfall after Azrael Liplocked SVR. After the match, Azrael Liplocked Lissa. Orton entered a feud with Hulk Hogan and flirted with Hogan's then-eighteen-year-old daughter Brooke, inciting jealousy from Azrael. In the weeks leading up to Orton's and Hogan's “Legend vs. Legend Killer” match at SummerSlam, Azrael went to go after Brooke, but Orton held her back. During her matches leading up to SummerSlam, Azrael came out with red and yellow feather boas and, when she entered the ring, took them off, placed them on the ground, and repeatedly stomping on them, stating, “That's gonna be you, Hogan.”
Eventually, she got into a cat fight with Brooke, a fight that was split up by both Orton and Hogan. This happened repeatedly in the weeks leading up to SummerSlam. Then then-RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff stated that, for the “Legend vs. Legend Killer” match at SummerSlam, both Azrael and Brooke were banned from ringside. He also threatened Azrael with suspension if another cat fight happened between them. At SummerSlam, Hogan beat Orton.
On the October 9 episode of RAW, Orton & Azrael, who continued to call herself the Legend Killer Diva, teamed up with Edge to become Rated-RKO. The three of them feuded with the newly reformed DX, which included Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and the now-married Seras Victoria Ride (who sometimes went by SVR). Lita & Azrael didn't seem to get along at first, but, after much convincing by both Edge and Orton, the pair teamed together the week after the formation of Rated-RKO against Maria and Trish, a match the pair won after a Twist of Fate by Lita. In a backstage segment after the match, the pair seemed to be getting along better and, the next week, began calling themselves Extreme Legend. Extreme Legend continued to dominate until after a miscommunication during their match against Mickie James and Maria.
Their relationship strained further during their match against Mickie James and Candice Michelle the following week, which Lita & Azrael lost due to another miscommunication between them. The pair was seen yelling at each other backstage and eventually brawling, only to be broken up by Edge and Orton. Their last tag team match was the November 20, 2006 episode of RAW, which was against Mickie and Candice. After the match, the pair shared choice words with each other, Lita also pushed Azrael. In the end, Azrael came back from the push and was about to walk away, when Lita turned her around only to be hit with a Liplock.
The team officially ended at Survivor Series, where Lita lost to Mickie James in a singles match for the Women's Championship. After Survivor Series, Azrael helped Orton and Edge beat Ric Flair until he was bloody and continued to beat him after dragging him to the ring, knowing that DX had already left the building. For the rest of the time Rated-RKO was together, Azrael stayed as their manager & valet, occasionally competing if the need arose. On the January 29, 2007 episode of RAW, Edge and Orton lost the World Tag Team Championships to John Cena and Michaels. Rated-RKO continued their internal dissension when both male members laid claim to being the number one contender to the WWE Championship.
Azrael tried to make them keep their focus on retaining the World Tag Team title belts and asked for a rematch against Cena and Michaels, which Orton and Edge lost after Edge walked out due to miscommunication when Azrael attempted to distract the ref. Backstage after the match, Azrael walked up to Edge and asked him what his problem was. Edge responded that it was her fault that they lost the match. Azrael slapped Edge and told him not to blame her for his own problems. Orton walked up to them and also asked Edge what his problem was, which led to Edge repeating what he said to Azrael.
The relationship strained further as both men set their sights on then-WWE Champion John Cena. Edge and Orton both wanted to compete for the title at WrestleMania 23. On the February 5, 2007 episode of RAW, Edge and Orton, along with Shawn Michaels, were booked in a triple threat #1 contenders match to determine who would face Cena at WrestleMania for the title. After a miscommunication between the pair where Edge inadvertently speared Orton, Michaels would capitalize and deliver Sweet Chin Music to Edge and pin him for the victory. Rated-RKO continued to set their sights on the WWE Championship after both men qualified for the WrestleMania 23 Money in the Bank ladder match. For weeks, Edge influenced various authority figures into putting Orton in matches that would cause Orton not to succeed.
During her matches before the Show of Shows, Azrael vented her frustrations by attacking various Divas, causing her to lose multiple matches by disqualification. When asked about it, she stated, “I know what you're trying to do. I'm warning you right now, stop it or else.” After both men failed to win the Money in the Bank ladder match, they reunited on the April 16, 2007 episode of RAW to take on John Cena in a handicap match but lost the match due to interference from Michaels, causing Azrael to Liplock both Michaels and Cena. At Backlash, Edge and Orton were involved in a Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE Championship along with Michaels and Cena. Before the match began, then-RAW GM Jonathan Coachman announced that Azrael was banned from ringside.
During the match, Azrael was seen backstage in her locker room watching the match and cheering for Orton. When the match ended, Cena retained the title after pinning Orton. When Azrael attempted to go out, Coachman was behind her, shaking his head. On the April 30, 2007 episode of RAW, Edge fought against Mr. Kennedy for Kennedy's Money in the Bank briefcase, which Edge won. Azrael then ran out and shared some choice words with Edge.
Edge then went to spear Azrael, but she moved out of the way. When he turned around, she gave him the Liplock. Later on that night, Edge competed against Orton in a one-on-one match. Azrael was in Orton's corner. Edge won the match by pinning Orton following a spear. Azrael slithered into the ring and, as soon as Edge turned around again, she Liplocked him for the second time that night.
She then grabbed a microphone and said, “I warned you before WrestleMania, Edge,” implying that she knew about what he did to Orton. She dropped the mic and helped Orton up. Orton motioned for her to let him go, and she did. Then he picked up Edge and motioned for Azrael to come over to them, which she did. Then they hit Edge with the double RKO, a move that Edge and Orton had done a couple of weeks after they formed Rated-RKO.
Feud with Lissa Harkness, The Legacy, Women's Champion (2007-2011)Edit
After Edge moved over to SmackDown, Rated-RKO officially split up. During Orton's feud with Shawn Michaels, Azrael came out to the ring dressed like Michaels and poked fun at him in an attempt to gain villainous heat. Lissa Harkness took exception to this and tried to attack Azrael, but Azrael dodged and Liplocked Harkness, reigniting their feud from the year before. They continued to feud through SummerSlam and Unforgiven. On RAW the night after Unforgiven, Azrael suggested that her and Lissa end it at No Mercy in a Contract vs. Career match, where, if Lissa lost, she would leave WWE forever, but, if Azrael lost, Lissa would be able to change Azrael's contract whatever way she wanted.
Lissa agreed. Mr. McMahon added that if either Azrael or Lissa attack each other in the weeks leading up to the match or at No Mercy itself, the match won't happen and they would both be officially terminated. At No Mercy, Azrael came out with Orton and watched as Mr. McMahon awarded him the WWE Championship after he RKO'd the previous WWE Champion, John Cena, on RAW before the pay-per-view. She stuck by him during his match against Triple H to open the pay-per-view, a match Orton lost. Later on, Azrael defeated Lissa via pinfall following a Liplock.
To add insult to injury, Azrael punted Lissa in the skull. Later in the night, Azrael stood in Orton's corner for his second match against Triple H, this time a Last Man Standing match, a match Orton won, making him a two-time WWE Champion in one night. On the October 8 episode of RAW, Shawn Michaels returned and performed Sweet Chin Music on both Orton and Azrael. At Cyber Sunday, the fans voted for Michaels to go against Orton, who had Azrael in his corner, for the WWE Championship. During this time, Azrael had lowered her interferences to when Orton was being pinned.
During the match, Azrael attempted to get Michaels to use Sweet Chin Music on her, but he refrained. Orton ended up winning the match. The next night on RAW, Azrael came out and called Michaels a coward for not using his finisher on her the night before even though she knew that if he did, Michaels would never get a chance at the title. Orton retained the title at the Royal Rumble against Jeff Hardy. Following this, Azrael provoked John Cena, who had returned from his injury at the Rumble, to eventually use his title match at No Way Out, a match that Cena won by disqualification.
Triple H became the next number one contender for the WWE title that same night. The then-RAW GM William Regal made the match between Triple H and Orton at WrestleMania XXIV into a Triple Threat match and included Cena. He also banned Azrael from ringside, stating that if she interfered in the match, Orton would automatically lose the title. During Triple H's reign as GM, during the Triple Threat Takeover, he put Azrael in a match against all the Divas, a match Azrael won. At WrestleMania XXIV, Azrael remained backstage in the locker room and watched as Orton retained his WWE title. The following month, at Backlash, Orton dropped the title to Triple H in a Fatal Four-Way Elimination match, which also included Cena and John “Bradshaw” Layfield.
Orton and Triple H continued to feud until One Night Stand, where Orton broke his collarbone. While Orton was out on injury, Azrael criticized all the Divas, stating that they were nothing compared to her since she beat them all before WrestleMania. The heel Diva tag team Elena Fay and Nikita David took exception to this and tried to gain her respect. During this time, Azrael dropped her Legend Killer Diva gimmick and replaced it with her new gimmick known as The Viper Diva, to mirror Orton's new Viper gimmick. Azrael reported to WWE.com that Orton re-injured himself in a motorcycle accident before he could make his return.
Still, to keep on-screen exposure, he made an unexpected return to RAW at the beginning of September and criticized all of the champions on the brand. During this, Azrael challenged then-Women's Champion Beth Phoenix to a match that night, which Phoenix accepted. Azrael went on to win that match and then challenged her to a title match at Unforgiven. During this time, heel tag team Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase were attempting to gain Orton's respect. Elena and Nikita attempted to defeat Phoenix in a two-on-one handicap match on the RAW before Unforgiven, but they were unsuccessful.
At Unforgiven, Azrael, along with Orton, Rhodes, DiBiase, and Manu assaulted World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk, costing him his title. Later on that night, Azrael defeated Beth Phoenix by pinfall after a distraction from Elena and Nikita and a Liplock, earning her second Women's title and Elena and Nikita finally earning Azrael's respect. Azrael was in Orton's corner for his return match against CM Punk, a match Orton lost by disqualification after DiBiase interfered. In retaliation, Orton punted DiBiase in the head. On the December 1 episode of RAW, Orton and Azrael proposed that they along with Rhodes, Manu, Elena, and Nikita form an alliance.
The following week, Azrael, Elena, and Nikita made their portion of their alliance official by defeating SVR, Azrael's former stablemate, in a three-on-one handicap match. The three Divas accompanied Orton, Rhodes, and Manu to their three-on-two handicap match against Batista and Triple H, Azrael's and Orton's former stablemates, a match that Orton, Rhodes, and Manu won. The five of them dubbed themselves The Legacy. On January 25, 2009, Azrael successfully defended the Women's Championship against Melina, while Orton won the 2009 Royal Rumble. At No Way Out, she once again successfully defended her title against both Melina and Beth Phoenix with help from Elena and Nikita, while Orton defeated Shane McMahon in a No Holds Barred match the same night.
At the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, Azrael participated in the 25-Diva Miss WrestleMania battle royal, but she was eliminated by Trish Stratus. Later on, she came out for Orton's match against then-WWE Champion Triple H, a match Orton lost even with Azrael's interference. At Backlash, Orton became WWE Champion in a six-man tag team match with Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase (Manu's replacement in Legacy), facing off against Triple H, Batista, and Shane McMahon. At Extreme Rules, Azrael lost the Women's Championship to Melina and Orton lost the WWE Championship to Batista in a Steel Cage match. The weeks following Extreme Rules, Azrael attempted to regain the belt, but she was unsuccessful in her attempts, even with Elena and Nikita's interferences.
At Breaking Point, Azrael faced Melina, but, if Azrael lost, she wouldn't be able to compete for the Women's Championship while Melina was still champion. Azrael lost the match even with Elena's and Nikita's interferences. Later on that night, Azrael came out with Orton for his “I Quit” match against John Cena, a match Orton lost. After, Azrael grabbed the cane that Orton used to beat Cena with during the match, sneaked up behind Cena, and repeatedly hit him with it. At Hell in a Cell, Azrael competed against Mickie James in the first ever Divas Hell in a Cell match, which Azrael won.
Later on that night, she accompanied Orton to the ring for his Hell in a Cell match against Cena, but, instead of standing in Orton's corner, she sat at commentary for the match. For the rest of Orton's feud with Cena, Azrael remained his manager, only competing occasionally much to the annoyance of Rhodes, DiBiase, Nikita, and Elena. On the January 11, 2010 episode of RAW, Azrael qualified for the Fatal Four-Way match at the Royal Rumble for the Women's Championship, which also contained Mickie James, then-Women's Champion Michelle McCool, and Elena, a match that was won by Mickie when she pinned Michelle. Backstage, Azrael yelled at Elena, blaming her for the loss. The next night on RAW per orders of the GM, Azrael faced, and defeated, Elena by pinfall.
At the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, Azrael once again competed for the Women's Championship against Mickie, but Azrael lost by disqualification thanks to Elena and Nikita. Backstage, Azrael and Orton, who also lost his match, could be seen talking to each other about something. The next night on RAW, Azrael mentioned to Elena and Nikita that she had asked for a six-Diva tag team match. During the match, Azrael attacked Elena and Nikita in retaliation. At WrestleMania XXVI, Azrael defeated Elena and Nikita in a triple threat match, turning her into a fan favorite for the first time since 2005.
After she departed from Legacy, Azrael, now playing a babyface role, became Orton's permanent manager, only competing on occasions when she was provoked. At Night of Champions, she was confronted backstage by Nexus leader Wade Barrett. He attempted to get her to join Nexus, but she refused. He then slapped her. Azrael then got in his face and told him that she hoped he lost in the Six-Pack Challenge Elimination Match for the WWE Championship, a match that Orton won.
The next night on RAW, Azrael formed a reluctant alliance with John Cena to fight against Nexus. That same night, the two of them agreed to a match at Hell in a Cell, where, if Cena lost, the both of them would join Nexus, but, if Barrett lost, The Nexus would be forced to disband. At Hell in a Cell, Cena lost to Barrett. Backstage, Barrett gave Azrael a Nexus armband. Later on that night, Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his match against Sheamus, a match that Orton won.
The next week on RAW, Barrett won a Battle Royal to become the number one contender to Orton's WWE Championship. After the match, Azrael ripped off her Nexus armband and walked toward Orton, much to Barrett's dismay. When asked about it later, she didn't answer. Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his matches at Bragging Rights, Survivor Series, and the RAW after Survivor Series against Barrett, matches that Orton won. After Orton's third match against Barrett, The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and won the WWE Championship.
Orton, with Victoria in his corner, lost again in a singles match against Miz at the Royal Rumble after an interference from CM Punk. The week after the Rumble, SVR returned as a member of Punk's New Nexus and attacked her while Punk attacked Orton. Orton and Victoria fought against Punk and SVR in a mixed tag team match at WrestleMania XXVII, a match that Orton and Victoria won.
Alliance with Miz, Feuds with Kane, and Tweener Run (2011-2012)Edit
In the 2011 WWE Draft, Azrael was drafted to SmackDown along with Orton. Her first match on the blue brand was against Natalya for the right to face then-Diva’s Champion Brie Bella the next week on SmackDown. At Extreme Rules, she competed in another mixed tag team match with Orton against Punk and SVR, this time in a Last Superstar & Diva Standing match that Azrael and Orton won, indefinitely ending their rivalry with The New Nexus. Five days later on SmackDown, she faced Brie Bella for the Diva's Championship and was successful even though the Bellas pulled Twin Magic while the ref’s back was turned, pinning Nikki to win her first Diva’s Championship. Later on that night, she was in Orton’s corner for his World title match against then-Champion Christian, a successful attempt that earned Orton his second World title. On the Power to the People episode of RAW, Azrael lost the title to Kelly Kelly. Azrael and Kelly continued to feud until it culminated at the annual SummerSlam pay-per-view where Kelly defeated Azrael via pinfall. On the October 3rd episode of RAW, she did not participate in the 55 plus Superstar walkout on Triple H, stating that, if she had a problem with how Triple H was running things, she would walk into his office and tell him about it. On the Halloween edition of RAW, she dressed up as Baby Doll from Sucker Punch for the Diva Battle Royal.
During this, a woman had been helping Awesome Truth in their attacks against then-Tag Team Champions Air Boom. The Miz had referred to her in promos and interviews as Myka. She walked down to the ring with them as their manager, often interfering in Truth’s and Miz’s favor. At the Night of Champions pay-per-view, Awesome Truth competed for the tag titles against then-Tag Champions Air Boom, a match they lost by disqualification after Miz assaulted the referee. They took retribution for the loss by interfering in the no disqualification match between Triple H and CM Punk in the main event.
The next night on RAW, the trio were fired by Triple H because of their actions. In backstage segments after Awesome Truth was fired, Azrael could be seen backstage talking on a cell phone. Miz, Truth, and Myka returned at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, jumping over the barricade and sliding into the ring after the main event match as the cell was being raised. The trio attacked John Cena, CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio, and several others while the cell was being lowered again. Myka seemed to be focused on Del Rio and the others, refusing to attack either Cena or Punk. When the cell door was unlocked, New Orleans Police officers came in and arrested the trio. In the video they posted on YouTube later, Myka didn’t say a word. On the October 10 episode of RAW, the trio were reinstated by the EVP of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis. Afterwards, he made a tag team match between Awesome Truth and the team of Punk and Triple H for Vengeance with the stipulation that, should Awesome Truth lose, Myka would become the number one contender to the Diva’s title, but, if Punk and Triple H lose, Myka would have to reveal who she is to the WWE Universe. At Vengeance, Miz and Truth defeated Punk and Triple H after an interference from Kevin Nash. That same night, Azrael was in Orton’s corner for his match against Cody Rhodes.
The next night on RAW, Miz and Truth came out with Myka. She pulled off the Miz hoodie she was wearing to reveal that she was Azrael, signaling the start of her tweener run. Azrael stuck by Awesome Truth until their split on the November 21 episode of RAW.
After Miz and Truth split up, Azrael stuck by Miz as well as Cena and Orton. On the December 5 episode of RAW, Azrael came out with Orton for his match against Miz where, if Miz won, he would qualify for the TLC match at the pay-per-view of the same name for the WWE Championship. Miz won this match via count out. Azrael and Miz decided to call themselves Awesome Evolution, a combination of Miz’s signature catchphrase and the first stable Azrael was a member of. At the TLC pay-per-view, Azrael was in Orton’s corner for his Tables match against Wade Barrett, a match that Orton won after a mid-air RKO through the table.
On the December 12 episode of RAW, Azrael was in Cena’s corner for his main event match against Mark Henry. Both Azrael and Cena were attacked by the returning Kane. The next week, Azrael and Cena were attacked by Kane once again after the duo called him out, Henry coming out before Kane. The following week, Kane explained that he had attacked both Azrael and Cena because he was disgusted of Cena’s “Rise Above Hate” t-shirt and Azrael’s ring gear slogans. He stated that hate is a “natural impulse” and people shouldn’t rise above it. He then led the fans in attendance that weren’t fond of the duo into chanting “Cena and Victoria Suck!” as RAW went off the air. Kane injured then-US Champion Zack Ryder, a friend of both Cena and Azrael, causing an injury that led to Ryder’s loss of the US Championship to Jack Swagger, a loss that caused both Cena and Azrael to relentlessly attack Swagger, a fact that Kane, as he stated in a promo that appeared after Cena’s and Azrael’s attack on Swagger, was impressed by. At the Royal Rumble, Azrael accompanied Cena to the ring for his match against Kane. They fought to a double count out only for Kane to get the upper hand on Cena, Azrael, and Ryder, who was watching in a private room in a wheelchair, after the match.
Azrael participated in the 2012 Royal Rumble match, entering at number 20, becoming the third woman to compete in the Rumble, but she entered the match wearing a Miz hoodie. She eliminated Epico and The Great Khali. She was eliminated by Wade Barrett. When asked about the hoodie later, she said nothing.
On the February 13 episode of RAW, Azrael walked down to the ring with Orton for his match against Big Show. Close to the end of the match, World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan entered the ring and hit both Orton and Show with the title belt, causing Orton to get a concussion and rendering him unable to compete in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber on the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. On the February 17 episode of SmackDown after Bryan's match against the 2012 Royal Rumble winner Sheamus, Azrael assaulted Bryan and hit him with the Liplock. She repeated this Sunday at Elimination Chamber after Bryan retained the title. The next night, she was sitting at commentary during Bryan's match against Santino Marella, Orton's replacement in the Chamber. As soon as Bryan won, Azrael slid into the ring and started beating up the champion.
The next night on the live Super SmackDown, Teddy Long placed her as the Special Guest Referee in the Champion vs. Champion match between Bryan and WWE Champion CM Punk, stating that she wasn't allowed to beat up either competitor. John Laurinaitis told her that Long wanted him to add that she would be banned from getting another shot at the Diva's Championship, a fact that Long denied when she asked him.
Following Orton's return to SmackDown on the March 2 episode of the show, Azrael was once again dragged into a feud with Kane when he attacked Orton during his match against then-World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan. Two weeks later, both Orton and Azrael asked Kane why he chose to feud with them since they both embrace hate. Kane revealed his shock at the fact that Azrael truly embraced the hate, something that he tried to do since their feud began in December. Azrael simply stated, “You mess with my friends, you mess with me. That's why I stuck by John.” Kane then revealed his reason for attacking them and challenged Orton to a match at WrestleMania XXVIII, which Orton lost. Their feud culminated at Extreme Rules, where Orton, with Azrael in his corner, defeated Kane in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.
On the May 7, 2012 episode of RAW SuperShow, Azrael went to comfort Miz after he lost to Brodus Clay, but he stated that he didn't need her anymore since he was using her only to get the WWE Championship again. Azrael responded with a Liplock, ending Awesome Evolution and her tweener run.
Truce with Lita, various feuds, and feud with Elena Fay (2012)Edit
The same night Awesome Evolution ended, Azrael was in Orton's and World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus' corner for their tag team match against Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio. Close to the end of the match, Orton was Brogue Kicked by Sheamus, costing them the match, much to Azrael's disbelief. After the match, Azrael and Orton double RKO'd Sheamus and then Orton, later along with Jericho and Del Rio, demanded a match for Sheamus' World Heavyweight Championship at Over the Limit, which they were granted, but Azrael was banned from ringside, much to the Diva's dismay. At the pay-per-view, Azrael watched as Orton failed in his World title pursuit after Sheamus pinned Jericho to retain the title.
On May 30, Orton was suspended due to his second violation of the company's Talent Wellness Program, leaving Azrael alone for 60 days. On July 23 at Raw 1000 in Azrael's and Orton's hometown of St. Louis, Azrael apologized to Lita following her match against Slater, which Lita accepted. Afterwards, Azrael Liplocked Slater, earning another resounding, “DAMN!” from Ron Simmons. That same night, Azrael accompanied Cena to the ring for his WWE Championship match against CM Punk, cashing in his Money in the Bank contract that night, a match that Cena lost by disqualification after an interference from Big Show. The Rock came out and intervened, but, much to Azrael's shock, Punk unexpectedly attacked him. In a WWE.com exclusive, Azrael confronted Punk about why he had done it, but he just waved her off, telling her to come out with him next week, claiming he would justify his actions then.
On the July 30 episode of RAW, Punk came out, a very confused Azrael trailing behind him. He then stated that he was tired of people like Cena and Rock overshadowing him when the WWE champion should be the focus of the company. Later that same night, Slater confronted Azrael about what she had done. Azrael shrugged her shoulders and said she had a “damn” good time with it, teasing about Simmons' reaction to what she had done. After that confrontation, Slater once again challenged anyone from the locker room to a match. The person who accepted Slater's challenge was none other than the returning Randy Orton, who, as Azrael watched from ringside, soundly defeated the One Man Band. Later on in the night, Azrael confronted Punk again, stating that she saw his point and that, if it was her in his position, she would do the exact same thing. For the main event, Cena vs. Big Show to determine the number one contender for Punk's WWE title at SummerSlam, Azrael sat at commentary, but she didn't say a word, even when Punk came out and disrupted the match and said that both Cena and Big Show were losers. At SummerSlam, Azrael sat at ringside for Punk's WWE title defense against Cena and Big Show, a match Punk successfully retained the WWE Championship.
The next night, RAW General Manager AJ Lee allowed Punk to choose the next number one contender for his WWE Championship for Night of Champions. During this time, Azrael would slowly stop managing Cena. When asked about it by Michael Cole at SummerSlam, she didn't answer. Punk ended up choosing Cena if Cena would say that Punk was the “Best in the World,” which Cena refused. After his refusal, Punk started to demand respect from GM AJ Lee, Jerry Lawler, Cena, and Bret Hart, eventually allying himself with Paul Heyman in the process. On the August 24 episode of SmackDown, SmackDown Money in the Bank winner Dolph Ziggler attempted to cash in his contract on a vulnerable Sheamus following a number one contenders match between Orton and Del Rio, but he ended up getting RKO'd by Orton. The following week on SmackDown, Orton, with Azrael in his corner, faced off against Ziggler in a match that was won by Orton. Vickie Guerrero attempted to interfere in the match, but she was Liplocked by Azrael. Three days later on RAW, Vickie attacked Azrael with Ziggler's MITB briefcase as Ziggler got the win on Orton while holding Orton's tights.
That same night, AJ made the match between Cena and Punk at Night of Champions official. On SmackDown, Ziggler demanded a match against Orton at Night of Champions. Vickie added that she wanted Azrael banned from ringside. The match was made official the Wednesday before the pay-per-view, but on SmackDown, SmackDown General Manager Booker T added, to make the match more fair, that Vickie was also banned from ringside, much to Vickie's dismay and Azrael's delight.
At Night of Champions, Orton defeated Ziggler. Later on that night, Punk would retain the WWE Championship following a draw when both Cena's and Punk's shoulders were on the mat. Azrael was sitting at commentary during the match after having come out with Punk and Heyman. The next night on RAW, Azrael told Punk that she had respected him since day one. Punk stated through Heyman that, “If you respect me, walk down to the ring with me again.” Azrael spent most of the night wondering what she was going to do, even talking to Orton. Later on that night, Azrael walked up to Punk and Heyman after their talk with David Otunga and Del Rio and asked to talk to them alone.
It was revealed during Punk's entrance that Azrael had agreed to accompanying the WWE Champion and Heyman to the ring. On the September 21 episode of SmackDown, Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his match, teaming with Sheamus, against Del Rio and Ziggler. Azrael's former protégé Elena Fay accompanied Del Rio to the ring. Close to the end of the match, Fay tried to interfere on Ziggler's and Del Rio's behalf, but Azrael knocked Fay down. Orton and Sheamus won the match. After the match, Azrael picked Fay up and Liplocked her. She then dropped on top of Fay and said after a camera was at her level, “Respect.” Later on in the night, Azrael was seen backstage talking on the phone to someone only to be interrupted by Matt Striker, asking her why she said respect. Azrael waved him off and stated that “All will be revealed next Monday night on RAW.”
The next week, Azrael revealed that her contract was on the line at Night of Champions. If Punk retained the WWE Championship, Azrael would become Punk's valet and do whatever he said. She then stated that Punk ordered her to attack Fay and added that she would've done that anyway. On the September 28 episode of SmackDown, both Azrael and Orton were attacked by Del Rio and Fay before Orton's number one contenders match for the World Heavyweight Championship against Big Show, Del Rio in retaliation for the RKO earlier in the night and Fay in retaliation for the Liplock from the previous week. The next week on SmackDown, after Del Rio and Fay poked fun at Orton's and Azrael's entrance and claims that they were the new Apex Predators, the lights went out. When they came on again, Rodriguez and David Otunga were down in the ring. Fay was down on the ramp and Del Rio was on top of his car with a hooded figure. The figure then gave Del Rio a familiar move, causing the crowd to cheer.
The figure then removed the hooded vest and was revealed to be Azrael Victoria. She said to Del Rio, “If you think that what I've done to you tonight was bad, just you wait until he comes back. By the way, you and Fay will never be the Apex Predators.” Cole confirmed afterwards that Azrael had renamed the Liplock to Comatose when they showed the replay later on in the night. On RAW after Punk accepted Mr. McMahon's challenge to a match later on in the night, Azrael pleaded with Punk to change his mind, but Punk remained steadfast in his decision. That same night and on SmackDown that Friday, Fay started impersonating Azrael whenever she had a match. Backstage at RAW a week later, Azrael told Fay that she should consider herself lucky that Punk was holding Azrael back.
Fay then started to say that it was tragic that Azrael let her contract be controlled by the outcomes of certain matches. Azrael said nothing. That week on SmackDown, Orton returned. Both Azrael and Orton attacked Del Rio, Rodriguez, and Fay, Orton RKO'ing Rodriguez on the announce table.
The next week on RAW, Azrael accompanied Punk to the ring as it was decision time for the WWE Champion. Just when the fans thought he was going to make his decision, he decided to bask in his beatdown and humiliation of Mr. McMahon the previous week. Azrael shook her head as he did so, saying to him, “You aren't the first person to do so, and you definitely won't be the last.”
Punk then explained his options, and then, after he did so, he started to take the cover of the easel. Then the crowd began booing him. Azrael shook her head and begged them to stop, but they didn't. Punk then decided to “go back to the drawing board” and take just a little more time with his decision, causing Azrael to face palm and shake her head once again. Mr. McMahon came out and revealed that, since Punk blew it, he would pick Punk's opponent for Hell in a Cell later on in the night.
While Punk and Heyman returned to the back, Azrael sat down at commentary to watch Del Rio's match against Brodus Clay, smirking at the shaking Rodriguez. After the match ended, Azrael seemed to be deep in thought about something. Before the WWE Championship Hell in a Cell contract signing, Azrael was on the phone talking to someone about Hell in a Cell. On SmackDown, Azrael came down to the ring with Orton for his match against The Miz. Amy K attempted to interfere on Miz's behalf, but Azrael stopped her every single time, eventually hitting her with Comatose right when Orton hit Miz with the RKO. After the match, Azrael and Orton motioned for Del Rio, Fay, and Rodriguez (who were sitting in the skybox watching the match) to come down and face them, but Del Rio stated that they would do so on their own time.
At Hell in a Cell, Orton emerged victorious. Backstage after the match, Azrael and Fay brawled backstage, the brawl was started by Fay when she attacked Azrael from behind. This caused Fay to be banned from ringside on the following episode of WWE Main Event. The next night on RAW, Azrael joined Team Foley for the 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match, stating that she would be the manager for the team. On SmackDown the same week, Rodriguez and Del Rio attacked Orton before his match against Wade Barrett, Fay keeping Azrael away from the duo. Azrael eventually fought off Fay, grabbed a chair out from under the ring, and went to attack Del Rio and Rodriguez, but Del Rio, Rodriguez, and Fay went backstage. The match ended up happening, Barrett coming out with the win thanks to distractions from Fay, Del Rio, and Rodriguez.
Later, Del Rio continued to claim he was WWE's “new Apex Predator,” also adding that Fay was WWE's “new Apex Predator Diva,” but they were attacked from behind by both Orton and Azrael, igniting a fierce backstage brawl that stretched all the way to catering. Fay, Del Rio, and Rodriguez escaped, but not before Orton dumped chili and hot coffee on Rodriguez and Azrael dumped ice water on Fay. The next week on RAW, Azrael and Fay once again brawled backstage. That night, SmackDown General Manager Booker T stated that the pair would face each other at Survivor Series in a Last Diva Standing match. If Azrael and Fay continued to attack each other, the one who started the fight would be banned from getting a shot at the Divas Championship for the rest of her career. Later on in the night, Azrael sat at commentary during Del Rio's match against Kofi Kingston, answering text messages from someone. As Del Rio got the upper hand, Azrael took of her headset and quickly ran over to his car after grabbing a mic and an unknown object. As soon as she reached his car, she got Del Rio's attention and claimed that, since Del Rio had so many cars, she didn't think he would mind if she took this one.
She then looked the car over and stated that there were a few problems with it. Azrael pulled the object she had grabbed earlier out from behind her back, which turned out to be a sledgehammer, and proceeded to point out the various problems with the car, essentially creating them herself. She then stated that Del Rio could have his car back as Kingston rolled him up for the pin, but Del Rio kicked out. Azrael walked back down the ramp and said that it was a shame that Del Rio almost lost, but the man was focusing on Kingston. Before she said anything more to him, Fay started to go after Azrael, but Azrael reminded Fay of Booker's threat and she stopped. Azrael then told Del Rio that there was someone in the back who wanted to see him before his match against Orton the next night on Super SmackDown Live.
She motioned toward the ramp and Orton's theme began to play, stealing Del Rio's attention away from Kingston. Kingston then rolled Del Rio up for a quick pin, causing a smirk to grow on Azrael's face as she entered the ring. Kingston left the ring and Del Rio raged about his loss. Azrael continued to smirk as Orton slithered into the ring. Azrael moved beside him and planted Del Rio with a thunderous double-RKO.
On Super SmackDown Live, Azrael faced Amy K in a singles match before the recap of Brad Maddox's statement that he wanted a WWE contract, a match Azrael won by pinfall. Later on that night, Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his Falls Count Anywhere match against Del Rio. During the match, she attacked Rodriguez after getting sick of his interferences. Orton eventually won the match following an RKO on the steps introduced to the match by Del Rio.
Feud with the Shield and Ms. Money in the Bank (2012-present)Edit
On the December 3 episode of RAW, both Azrael & Orton began a feud with The Shield, after they were both attacked by them following Orton's victory over Brad Maddox. On the December 14 episode of SmackDown, Azrael found Orton after he was once again assaulted backstage by The Shield. This was used to write Orton off television due to a shoulder injury. During Orton's absence, Azrael became Punk's valet full-time, accompanying him to the ring for his match against Ryback at TLC: Tables Ladders, & Chairs. On the New Year's Eve RAW, both Azrael and the returning Orton helped both Ryback and Sheamus fend off The Shield.
On the January 7 episode of RAW, she, along with Heyman, accompanied Punk to the ring for his TLC match for the WWE Championship against Ryback, which Punk won due to an interference from The Shield. On the January 11 episode of SmackDown and the January 16 episode of Main Event, after she was handcuffed to the ropes, The Shield attacked Orton during his matches against Antonio Cesaro. At the Royal Rumble on January 27, she accompanied Punk to the ring for his WWE Championship match against The Rock. Punk originally retained the title after the arena lights went out and The Shield put Rock through a table. Just as Mr. McMahon was about to strip Punk of the title, but he restarted the match at The Rock's request, leading Punk to immediately lose the title to The Rock. Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his Elimination Chamber qualifying match against Wade Barrett on the February 17 episode of SmackDown, which Orton won. During the match, Barrett talked down to Azrael, earning a slap from her. At the Elimination Chamber, she accompanied Punk to the ring for his rematch against Rock where, if Rock was disqualified or counted out, Punk would become the WWE Champion again, but Rock won. Earlier on in the night, she walked down to the ring with Orton, who was the last man in and rolled-up by Jack Swagger.
In late February, both Azrael & Orton aligned themselves with Sheamus to feud with The Shield. Over the next few weeks, the trio saved each other from attacks by The Shield and Big Show. On the March 15 episode of SmackDown, Azrael offered her input as to which Superstar Orton and Sheamus should pick for the six-man tag team match at WrestleMania 29, mentioning Big Show. Despite opinions from both Azrael and Big Show with Azrael vouching for Show, Orton and Sheamus chose Ryback. Three days later on RAW, Ryback was booked in another he match for the event against Mark Henry, leaving the spot open. Later that night, Big Show saved the trio from an attack by The Shield, earning an “I told you so” look from Azrael. Orton and Sheamus immediately recruited him as their partner. In the weeks leading up to WrestleMania, tensions were running high between Sheamus and Show, turning both Azrael & Orton into peacekeepers. Orton also began vouching for Show, agreeing with Azrael. During their last argument before the event, Azrael told both Show and Sheamus that they needed to put their egos aside and just work together. On April 7 at WrestleMania 29, Azrael accompanied Orton, Sheamus, and Show to the ring for their match against The Shield, which Orton, Sheamus, and Show lost. After Show knocked both of his partners out, Azrael climbed into the ring and asked him what his problem was. She turned him around as he was attempting to leave, getting knocked out by Show. Later on in the night, she accompanied Punk to the ring for his match against The Undertaker, which Punk lost via Tombstone Piledriver.
The following night on RAW, Azrael accompanied Orton to the ring for his match against Sheamus to earn a match with Big Show, which ended in a no contest after Show interfered. Later that night, she was seen backstage talking with Paul Heyman, looking worried. Azrael accompanied both Orton and Sheamus for their two handicap matches against Show first on the April 12 episode of SmackDown (which Orton and Sheamus won via count-out) and the April 15 episode of RAW (which Orton and Sheamus also won, this time via pinfall). Later on in the night, Azrael, along with Heyman, accompanied Punk to the ring a week after his loss to Undertaker. Punk addressed the crowd while Azrael clenched the top rope with both hands. He briefly recalled his historic championship reign before hugging both Heyman and Azrael, poking Azrael's forehead with his middle and pointer fingers, and walking out of the arena. Azrael quickly exited the ring and followed him, asking him what was wrong.
After Punk's departure, Azrael returned to managing Orton. On the April 19 episode of SmackDown, she accompanied both Orton and Sheamus to the ring for their tag team match against Big Show and Mark Henry, which Orton and Sheamus lost. The feud between Big Show and Orton led to an Extreme Rules Match at Extreme Rules, which Orton won. In an interview before the match, Azrael revealed that her services were on the line. Following Extreme Rules, Orton, with Azrael by his side, began pairing with Daniel Bryan. Azrael once again was pushed into the role of mediator/peacekeeper between the two as they, along with Bryan's tag team partner Kane, to face a common enemy in the Shield. On the June 14 episode of SmackDown, Azrael was in Orton & Team Hell No's corner for their six-man tag team match against the Shield, Orton & Team Hell No ending the Shield's unpinned/unsubmitted streak in televised six-man tag matches.
Three days later at the inagural Payback pay-per-view, Azrael was in Orton & Bryan's corner for their unsuccessful challenge for Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins' WWE Tag Team Championships. She was also in the returning-CM Punk's corner, along with Paul Heyman, for his match against Chris Jericho, not getting involved in the match at all. The following night on Raw, Azrael was in Orton's corner for his No Disqualification match against Bryan, which Orton won via referee stoppage after Bryan suffered a legitimate nerve injury. Four days later on SmackDown, Azrael was banned from ringside (Bryan thinking that she would interfere in the match) as Bryan defeated Orton in a singles match via count-out. Azrael accompanied Orton the following Monday for his third match against Bryan, which ended in a no-contest after both men were counted out. Later on that night in a WWE App exclusive before his fourth match against Bryan, Orton revealed that he now thought that Bryan was the weak link, Azrael agreeing with him. Later, with Azrael watching from the top of the entrance ramp, Orton was defeated by Bryan in a Street Fight match after he was forced to submit to the No!-Lock.
At Money in the Bank, Azrael sat at commentary for the Money in the Bank All-Stars match, which was won by Orton. The next night on Raw, Azrael overcame seven other Divas to become the first ever Ms. Money in the Bank.
Azrael guest-starred in an episode of NCIS as FBI Agent Bilqis "Billie" Fisher, one of Tony DiNozzo's ex-girlfriends. She has also appeared in an episode of Deal or No Deal with Randy Orton and Edge. Azrael was interviewed in Randy Orton: Evolution of a Predator, where she talks about growing up with him and their relationship. On August 6, 2012, it was announced that Azrael would have a cameo role in 12 Rounds: Reloaded, also staring best friend and fellow wrestler Randy Orton.
The day after Hell in a Cell 2010, Azrael was reportedly taken to WWE doctors by Randy Orton, the doctors finding a mild concussion and some bruising. The following week, Azrael was once again taken to WWE doctors by Orton, this time they found that her knee had been swollen. Later on that night, a fan in the front row, during Orton's and Azrael's handicap mixed tag team match against Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, and Maryse, reported that he heard Barrett screaming, “I hate you” to Azrael as he punched and kicked her while she was down until John Cena pulled Barrett off of her and Orton came to Victoria's defense.
In 2003, a rumor was going around that Azrael was dating fellow third-generation wrestler Randy Orton. This was confirmed in a WWE Magazine interview that Azrael gave in 2011, but the relationship had already ended. She stated in the interview that they had started dating a few months after Evolution was formed and ended the week before No Mercy 2007.Another rumor started going around in the weeks before the original Nexus invaded RAW that involved Azrael, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton, and an unnamed WWE employee. The contents of the rumor are unknown so far. When asked about it, Azrael refused to comment about it. Some people believe that whatever happened between the four of them caused Azrael to rip off her Nexus armband when Barrett challenged Orton for the WWE Championship.
Azrael has a tattoo on her right inner wrist of Orton’s initials. She stated in the same interview that she got it done when Legacy was still together. She also has the kanji for heaven tattooed on her right shoulder blade. She got it done the Friday before WrestleMania XXVIII. In a separate interview, Azrael stated she had that one done after finishing the Clover Studio game Ōkami.
Azrael cites her parents, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and “Cowboy” Bob Orton as her inspirations. She is friends with Amy Dumas, better known by her ring name Lita, Randy Orton, John Cena, Alanna Lovato (better known by her WWE ring name Lissa Harkness), Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Allen Jones (AJ Styles), Elena Taylor (Elena Fay), Phil Brooks (CM Punk), Paul Heyman, Mike Mizanin (The Miz), and Kevin Kiley (Alex Riley). Azrael has confirmed in a separate interview that her godfather is “Cowboy” Bob Orton, a fact that was first mentioned on the April 10, 2012 episode of SmackDown by Booker T.
In a separate interview, Azrael confessed that she loves mythology, specifically from Greece, Rome, Egypt, and Japan. She has stated that her love of Japanese mythology came from playing Ōkami on the Wii and its sequel for the DS Ōkamiden. Her love of Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythology, however, came from reading Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, and The Kane Chronicles, all by author Rick Riordan.
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Azrael dyed a strand of her hair pink and has added pink to her new attire.
Azrael has been in multiple WWE video games since her debut in RAW 2. From SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 to WWE '12, she was a downloadable character. At WWE's SummerSlam Axxess 2012, Azrael has been confirmed as a playable character in WWE '13 instead of a downloadable character, but her debut look is unlockable.
