Jessica Kresa started in professional wrestling trying out for the WWE television reality show, Tough Enough. Though she made the top twenty five, she was not selected as a finalist. She began wrestling in various Midwest promotions such as Steel Domain Wrestling (SDW) and the United States Wrestling Organization using names such as Jessica Dalton & Jessica James. She competed against men on several occasions such as Ken Anderson and Shawn Daivari. Kresa was extremely busy in 2003. She lost an MMA fight to Kelly Kobold, but gained national exposure appearing in Total Nonstop Action as Poison where she feuded with Trinity. In 2004, she appeared again in the promotion beating Tracy Brooks.
ODB – Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW)
By June of 2006, she began working for the Ohio Valley Wrestling promotion using the name “One Dirty Bitch”. At a time when OVW did not officially recognize a women’s champion, Kresa began a campaign to owner Danny Davis stating that she was the OVW Women’s Champion. Davis conceded and on August 1rst, 2006, made her the first recognized OVW Women’s Champion. On September 13th, she lost the title to Serena Deeb in a Fatal-Four way match also featuring Katie Lea and Beth Phoenix. In spring of 2007, she was the first ever “Miss OVW”, and regained her OVW Women’s Championship title on June 1rst, defeating Katie Lea. Kresa held the belt for a little more than three months before losing it to Milena Roucka while competing against six other women. Kresa left OVW approximately a month later.
ODB – TNA Knockout
On October 10th, 2007, Jessica Kresa was signed to TNA and scheduled to appear at the Bound for Glory pay-per-view to crown the first ever TNA Knockouts Women’s Champion. Her appearance marked the first time a female star had ever left OVW to be signed to TNA instead of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Four days later, at Bound for Glory, she was eliminated by Roxxi Laveaux missing her chance to be the first Knockout champion in TNA. She began appearing regularly on TNA broadcasts somewhat sloshed, toting a flask, and sporting an attitude. Her antics make her a fan favorite fairly quickly and on January 3rd, 2008 she won an Eight-Way Knockout Gaunlet match that boosted her rankings in the division.Two weeks later on iMPACT! she beat Angelina Love making her the number one contender for the Knockouts title.
ODB vs Angelina Love
Her opponent, however, was Awesome Kong and at Against All Odds she was soundly beaten. She was cut short by Kong again at Destination-X, on March 9th, in a Triple-Threat match that also included Gail Kim. One month later in TNA, ODB and Gail Kim defeated the team of Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed at the Lockdown PPV event. May 11th, 2008, at Sacrifice, she took a big risk in competing in the first ever Knockouts “Make Over Battle Royal”. She was eliminated early in the match, which may have been a good thing because the loser got her head shaved immediately after the match. By summer-time ODB, Rhaka Khan, and Rhino began a rivalry with The Beautiful People (Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, and Cute Kip).
Early in 2009 at Genesis, ODB competed against six other Knockouts in a Battle Royal. She scored the pin-fall and won the number one contender spot. For the next month, she began a nasty losing streak and was beaten, mercilessly , at the hands of The Kongtourage. At Against All Odds, she fared no better against Kong. For the next few weeks in TNA, ODB appeared only in promos advertising a “one night stand with some lucky guy”. The skits were hilarious and led into Destination-X where she chose Cody Deaner out of three finalists. The following weeks were filled with promos on “The Deaner and ODB TNA adventure” even appearing together as she managed “The Deaner’s” first wrestling match. Finally, on April 15th at Lockdown, the “Bitch” hit the ring again, defeating Daffney, Madison Rayne, and Sojourner Bolt in the “Queen Of The Cage” match.
ODB, could also be described as “One Tough Bitch” or “One Gutsy Bitch”. To have to foresight to leave OVW when she did and make a name for “herself ” instead of waiting for World Wrestling Entertainment to decide what to do with her was a “Gusty” move that was probably better for her career in the long run. Her drunken – “let it all hang out “persona and style definitely have appeal to the TNA fans where WWE is targeting more of a PG audience which would have hurt her career. While she has yet to hold the TNA Knockouts title, her feuds with Awesome Kong and the Kongtourage have proven she is as tough as they come.
