She walked on to the University of Tennessee and was projected to start by her sophmore year but was kicked out before the season started for assualting a teammate. It was after this that Vasquez decided to pursue wrestling. After just 2 months of training Aniyah mad made her debut at CTO's annual pay per view Jumpoff.
High School & College
Aniyah Vasquez was a highly recruited basketball player out of the Wynwood area of Miami Florida. Throughout highschool Vasquez was known for being a great player but also extremely hot headed and known for trouble. Despite winning it the two years prior, and considered a relative shoe in for the trifecta, Vasquez was disqualified for Mrs Basketball in her senior year for having too many suspensions from school and other "behavioural problems".
This reputation also dropped her considerably in ESPN's top 100 female basketball players in the country ranking. Many believed Vasquez belonged at least in the top 15, but her reputation proceded her and they listed her at number 98.
After graduating, Vasquez declined full ride scholarships from much smaller schools and school with less than prestegious basketball programs (the only schools offering full scholarships to Vasquez because she was considered a risk), to walk on for the women's basketball powerhouse University of Tennessee.
After being there for only 4 weeks, during a summer camp Vasquez was booted off the team and subsequently out of school for assaulting teammate Jenniffer Pigman. Vasquez claims that she was a victim of discrimination and was defending herself.
University of Nevada
After being kicked out of school, Vasquez decided to attempt to take one of the offers that she previously recieved for a full ride prior to accepting University of Tennessee's offer. While the full offers were retracted, some schools did offer her partial scholarships. Eventually she chose to play for the University of Nevada. It was not long after however that Aniyah found herself in trouble once again.
On November 15th Vasquez was arrested for multiple offenses that once again, found her kicked out of college.
Twice removed from college Aniyah moved back to Miami and fell in with the wrong crowd before her older half sisters, Delilah Lalieu and Alicia Dominguez, who were already established wrestlers convinced Vasquez to join them.
Rise to Number 1 Contendership
VaDoll made her firey debut against Rima O'Sparkle Nelly, (who was also making her debut that night) on a July episode of Corruption.
With her older sister, Alicia VaDoll standing on the apron watching her back VaDoll overpowered Nelly for most of the match and picked up a victory. Depsite in her first match she showed she was still new to wrestling, her charisma stuck with fans making her an instant fan favorite. During the match Aniyah took a "timeout" to go to the commentary table and speak on the headset for a short period then rushed back into the ring to continue attacking Nelly. Vasquez eventually was too strong for Nelly and easily overpowered her throughout the match, ending it was a spear and winnging via pinfall.
In her 2nd match, VaDoll faced off against London Bliss. The lightening fast Bliss gave Aniyah slightly more troublethan her previous opponent Rima O Sparkle Nelly because of her speed. Bliss was able to get marginal offense in on the much bigger VaDoll but much of it was to no avail due to the size difference. Alicia attacked London after the match, much to Aniyah's chagrin.
Aniyah picked up another win in singlescompetetion, and coupled with her presence on the microphone and her ever growing star power, Aniyah was already in talks for a title shot, much to the chagrin of some in the lockerroom, espicially one Heather Spade.Heather Spades did not like the fact that VaDoll, a newcomer not only to the company but wrestling in general, wasrecieving the attention that she was getting and claimed she was going to expose VaDoll as being "not as athletic as she claimed" and "certainly not a wrestler." The two exchanged barbs back on forth via twitter leading up to the matchwith each exchange being more vicous than the first. When the match finally took place Heather outwrestled Aniyah for most of the match. Spades started off the match by going out of the ring and taunting and repeated thisany time Aniyah gained any momentum in the match. Spades goal was to get into Aniyah VaDoll's head and it worked.VaDoll looked sluggish in the ring due to Spades actions. By this time, Diva of Dominance Champion Camilla Di'orr saw VaDoll as a threat for her title and had made her way to ringside to spectate, providing another distraction for VaDoll. When she was finally able to get on offense, instead of focusing on her opponent Heather Spades, VaDoll went outside of the ring and hit "The And 1" on Di'orr allowing Spades to get the upper hand again. Spades controlled most of the match but eventually Alcicia provided a distraction by grabbing Heather's leg giving Aniyah an opening to thumb Spades in the eye and roll her up for the victory.
This victory, while propelled her even higher toward the title, also opened up some of her competitions eyes about her skill. While VaDoll was strong and a brawler, she could be out wrestled.
Despite her youth and inexperience Aniyah VaDoll was set to recieve her first ever title shot against Camilla Di'orr.
Lead Up To Title Match
Never one to shy away from her feelings, Vasquez became a perennial thorn in Camilla Di'orr's side, reminding her repeatedly that she was "Coming for her title". Di'orr, being the wiley competitor she is, blackmailed Aniyah with pictures on a flash drive claiming that she would release them if Aniyah didn't do whatever she told her. Di'orr made Aniyah's life miserable as she and her cohorts humiliated Aniyah week in and week out forcing her to act as a servant. It was never fully revealed what was on the flash drive, many speculate it was something concerning VaDoll's sexual orientation, but as the two dated in the past, it is still a mystery.
Sister vs Sister rivalry
Season 2 Episode 1
Before Aniyah's title shot, she was vicously beaten backstage by her older sister and then manager, Alicia VaDoll.Prior to that, despite earning her number one contendership the prior season, Camilla Di'orr convinced the CEO of the company and Aniyah's other older sister, Delilah VaDoll to put Aniyah in a match to prove that she was indeed ready for a number one contendership spot. Delilah agreed and forced Aniyah to compete against Angel Warren in a no DQ match.
Almost as soon as the match started, Camilla Di'orr made her way to ring side and ultimately the ring, attacking Aniyah mercilessly until Tesla Vandetta came out making the save by delivering the "Barbie Breaker" to Angel Warren and dragging Aniyah's lifeless body ontop of her for the pin. Moving Aniyah one step closer to her ultimate goal.
Despite taking a heavy beating Aniyah made it clear that she wanted to wrestle her scheduled match for the night against Di'orr for the tite. Prior to the match however, Aniyah was again assaulted. This time by her much stronger older sister, Alicia VaDoll.Alicia's assault lasted just over a minute but the effects were detrimental. Aniyah could not compete in her title match and Rachel Reigns made her debut and captured the goal from Camilla Di'orr via pinfall.
Aniyah was visibly upset following the attack and instantly set out for blood against the betrayal by her sister. Alicia sited Aniyah's "do good" attitude and need for adulation from the fans as the reason for attacking her. Alicia felt that Aniyah's spot was undeserved.
Season 2 episode 2
Leading up to the show, Aniyah was very vocal on social media, claiming that Alicia was "better than" she was, and was "more talented" than she was. This however was a ruse on Aniyah's part as she killed the Aniyah character on episode 2 thus being reborn Aniyah Vasquez's alter ego,Redbone. The "Redbone" character was immensly more abrasive and street smart than her more family friendly (But still crude) Aniyah VaDoll persona. As Redbone, Aniyah confronted her sister. The two had to be forcefully pulled apart in the ring followed by Aniyah taking out security and challenging her the next week on Corruption.
Season 2 episode 3Aniyah challenged Alicia to a highly anticpated matchup. The two powerhouses reached a stalemate to start the match with Alicia getting the upperhand eventually. Just as it looked like the powerhouse Alicia was going to put Aniyah away, after hitting not one but two of her finsihing maneuvers. Alicia big booted Aniyah's skull as she lay helpless against the ringpost.The assault didn't stop there as Alicia hit Aniyah with brass knuckles flattening her in front of her hometown crowd. Aniyah was stretchered out as Alicia looked on.
Season 2 Episode 4
With the show taking place in Great Brittian Aniyah was said to be at home recovering from the injuries sustained at the hands of Alicia, who entered the arena dressed in a Chicago Bulls jersey and mocking Aniyah's mannerisms and entrance. Aniyah was backstage however, interrupting the match and distracting Alicia by douncing her with insults as she fought against her opponent Maya Martinez. Aniyah's insults did not do the job as Alicia steamrolled her opponent easily. After the match however Aniyah delivered a powerful spear to Alicia on the ramp.
In another attempt to throw Aniyah off of her game, on the night of the pay per view the match was changed to a Tables match at the last minute.Aniyah won by reversing Alicia's apron Senton attempt into a powerbomb through the table after a lenghthy, hard fought match. Aniyah attempted to bury the hatchet after the match by shaking hands but Alicia delivered another knockout punch flooring Aniyah.
