History

The Nitro Girls Wrestling Redux The WCW Nitro Girls Again

The Nitro Girls were formed in 1997 by Kimberly Page at Eric Bischoff's request and made their debut on July 14 in Orlando, Florida. Their main focus was to entertain the live fans during the commercials of Monday Nitro. They also regularly performed in short segments on the show.

During the Nitro Girls’ opening dance routine on the October 6, 1997 edition of WCW Monday Nitro from the Target Center in Minneapolis, one of Chae’s nipples accidentally popped out of her top. Cameras immediately cut to a shot of the live audience.

The Nitro Girls filmed their own pay-per-view, dubbed "The Nitro Girls Swimsuit Calendar Special" which aired on August 3, 1999 and was later released on home video.

In late 1999, the group held a competition to find a new member. In November, Stacy Keibler defeated 300 other girls for a spot on the dance troupe and $10,000. Her winning routine was watched by 4.4 million viewers.

The Nitro Girls also made appearances at WCW promotional events and were featured in the WCW produced film Ready to Rumble. As the group became more and more involved in storylines, it slowly dissolved, but never officially broke up until 2001 when WCW was sold to Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation.

Involvement in storylines

In October, 1999 Kimberly Page began to appear with then husband and wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. At Halloween Havoc, 1999 she claimed Ric Flair spanked her 14 times after she was going to drug his son David Flair in a hotel room. Diamond Dallas Page would then go on to wrestle Ric Flair in a strap match. On the November 1, 1999 episode of WCW Monday Nitro Kimberly quit the group as a result of her husband being injured by David Flair, she then ran him over with her car.

After Kimberly left, the Nitro Girls began to feud with each other, Spice feuded with A.C. Jazz over the new leadership position and won. After Jazz left the group, Tygress attempted to gain control.

By early 2000 the Nitro Girls officially broke up and began to go their own way within WCW. Kimberly Page would go on to join the The New Blood. Sharmell Sullivan became Paisley, a valet for The Artist and would later go to the WWE. Stacy Keibler, the final member to join the group, began appearing as Miss Hancock the manager for the tag team Standards and Practices before going to the WWE.

Diversity 5

Several former Nitro Girls formed a pop music group called Diversity 5: Teri Byrne (Fyre), Melissa Bellin (Spice), Sharmell Sullivan (Storm), Chae An (Chae) and Vanessa Sanchez (Tygress). When Sharmell went to the WWF for the first time, Chiquita Anderson (Chiquita) replaced her. The D5 group released one cd single (I Promise/Shake Me Up) in 2001, but by the following year the group bottomed out when they appeared on the FOX reality show 30 Seconds to Fame on October 31, 2002 and were promptly voted off.
