Linda Miles / Shaniqua

She maybe a bit " thick" for some peoples tastes, but I swear she had one of the best sets of abs in the business.

Linda Miles (born August 28, 1978) is an American former professional wrestler and professional wrestling manager. She worked for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) between 2002 and 2004.

Miles was a member of the Rutgers University women's basketball team. She graduated from Rutgers in 2001. In May 2001, she tried out for a roster spot with the Seattle Storm of the WNBA, but was released during the team's training camp. Miles and her Rutgers teammates were featured in a 2004 documentary film of the team's 2000-2001 season entitled This Is A Game, Ladies.

In 2002, Miles entered and won the second series of WWE Tough Enough. She and co-winner Jackie Gayda were awarded developmental contracts with the professional wrestling promotion World Wrestling Entertainment. Miles appeared on the June 8, 2002 episode of WWE Velocity, and faced her trainer, Ivory, with Gayda in her corner. Miles lost to Ivory after Gayda turned heel by pushing her off the top turnbuckle, costing her the match. On the June 12 episode of "SmackDown," Miles teamed with WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus to defeat Gayda and Ivory.

The two divas were then placed on the WWE Raw brand. On the June 24, 2002 edition of "Raw," Miles teamed with Trish Stratus to defeat Gayda and Molly Holly. However, due to Gayda's highly bashed mixed tag match on the July 8 edition of "Raw," Miles and Gayda were sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling for further training and development.

Miles returned to WWE television under the name Shaniqua in June 2003 as the dominatrix manager of The Basham Brothers. In the late summer of 2003, Shaniqua began to establish her dominance over the weaker divas. Shaniqua interfered in several bikini contests, attacking all of the divas except for Sable. She briefly feuded with the fellow SmackDown divas Torrie Wilson, Dawn Marie, and Nidia. Dawn Marie would challenge Shaniqua to a singles match in which Shaniqua won by disqualification after interferences from Torrie Wilson and Nidia. The following week Shaniqua destroyed Wilson and Nidia in a handicap match.

In early 2004 Shaniqua and The Basham Brothers sparked a feud with the then WWE Tag Team Champions Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi. Shaniqua joined her team in a handicap WWE Tag Team championship match against Rikishi and Scotty Too Hotty at the No Way Out 2004. Shaniqua's team lost when she was Banzai dropped by Rikishi for the loss. She was released from her contract by the WWE on November 12, 2004.

Linda now resides in Cincinnati and is currently employed by local Colerain High School as a study hall enforcer.
I wonder if she still carries the riding crop?
