Some sports include a little entertainment which is meant to entice their audience with something different to give people's eyes a break from the action. This is why football has cheerleaders, boxing has ring girls, and basketball has dance teams. Traditionally, wrestling is an all-action sport with no offseason and no distractions from the in-ring performances. When WCW debuted Monday Nitro, they added dancers known as the Nitro Girls to take a break from the action. The WCW Nitro Girls are memorable because of their gaudy outfits, dance routines, and some of them even became apart of the WCW wrestling roster. Whatever became of some of these Nitro Girls since Vince McMahon's acquisition of WCW nearly twenty years ago?

Whisper lived up to her name when she was a WCW Nitro Girl. Whisper would put a finger to her lips at the end of a dance routine, hence the pen name. Her life as a dancer in WCW would eventually change her life when a certain "boy-toy" from a rival wrestling company attended Monday Nitro one night.
Whisper, a.k.a. Rebecca Curci would soon marry and even become a mother because of this "boy-toy". She married WWE legend Shawn Michaels in 1999 and had a son (Cameron Kade) and a daughter (Cheyenne Michelle) with Shawn Michaels.
