Ashton Morgana Scott, (born 5 December 1985 in Detroit, MI) is an American professional wrestler better known as Ashton West. She is best known for her work with World Championship Wrestling and is currently signed to 'Bloodstone Wrestling Federation'.
Ashton West was born in Detroit, Michigan on December 5, 1985. She resided in Michigan up until the age of 19 with her mother, father and four brothers. In high school she was heavily involved in sports, just like her siblings. She participated on both the Track and Swimming teams, earning her invaluable recognition as a serious athlete. However, whilst many people expected her to be in future olympics ceremonies Ashton begged to differ and decided to apply her athletic background towards her niche of Professional Wrestling. At 17 years old she took up classes in both Kickboxing and Judo in which she attained a black belt.
Early Career and OverseasDuring her senior year in high school, she travelled in and around the Detroit area, participating in a few local indie shows, initially starting out as a valet before competing fully in the ring. In 2003, she graduated from Northwestern High School. She chose not to attend college and to apply herself fully towards her love of wrestling. Following her growing strained relationship with her family, in September 2004, she decided to relocate from Michigan and travel to both Japan and the United Kingdom to further her wrestling knowledge and experience.
West made the move to Japan in September 2004, intending to stay for one year. Her interest in joshi wrestlers spurred the move in the first instance. Her favorites being Bull Nakano, Akira Hokuto and Aja Kong. She hasn't been shy in her opinions on the differences between both joshi and American Women's Wrestling, most notably in one of her interviews:
"The difference between Japan and America, is that females are not objectified or made to feel lessened in their abilities. In fact, the majority of fans are actually female, and that's most possibly the best fanbase anyone could ask for. Sure it's nice to feel desired, but over here natural beauty is respected, not just thrown around in a centerfold... but in picturebooks and that's way more classy in my opinion. America, take note."'
She spent most of her time observing matches in the well known promotion, All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling. Despite it not being televised for 3 years, Ashton always speaks highly of it and at the sadness of its closure in April 2005, after 37 years.
After spending over a year in Japan, Ashton found herself landing upon the shores of the UK. Here she spent most of her time in the Northern part of the country, travelling to and from shows in Manchester, Doncaster and Liverpool where the independent scene had seemed to take over. She attended many One Pro Wrestling shows, one of the more popular promotions, where many North-American wrestlers have based themselves. However, much to her disappointment at the time 1PW were not interested in developing a solid female roster. It wasn't long before she had agreed to work under a small, yet well known promotion All-Star Wrestling in Liverpool, England. In her time spent overseas, she has gained tuition from the likes of Robbie Brookside, Lisa Fury and Klondyke Kate. During her time in the UK she also worked with the FWA, Frontier Wrestling Alliance in the South, along with the likes of Katarina Waters, more commonly known now as WWE Diva Katie Lea. All of which has influenced her in some traditional British wrestling styles.
During her year spent in the UK, she was quoted:
"The UK have some of the most amazing fans in the world, it's just such a shame that there isn't a solid base for female wrestling here yet. But I have no doubt in my mind that there will be in a few years... and when that happens, I'll be straight back. This is my second home."
World Championship Wrestling
On September 28, 2008, Ashton resurfaced in her first U.S. promotion in her 4 years of professional wrestling. She was approached by WCW talent scouts, that had been much impressed by her late stints in Japan and the UK and invited her back to the US to work under their ever-growing product. She made her debut on September 28, 2008, before going on to compete a week later on the October 6th edition of Nitro, her debut match being a mixed tag match with Ezra Starr. After that she made regular appearances on both Nitro, Thunder and many of the Pay-Per-View events. One of her most notable matches would be at Halloween Havoc, in which she defeated Stephanie Starrett to retain her undefeated streak of '4 and oh'. That didn't last long however, and despite the close call Trish Stratus gladly ended it on the last edition of Nitro just a few days before her and Heather Mackenzie's title match at World War III.
Ezra StarrAfter signing with WCW in mid-October, the WCW Cruiserweight Champion at that time; Ezra Starr requested the chance to work with her. The two appeared in a short series of scenes in which they built up their relationship, which they also coincidentally were doing off camera as well. Her debut match involved a mixed tag, in which her and Starr secured a victory against the Holy Messiahs. The rest was slowly pieced together as both Ashton and Starr began appearing ringside in each other's matches, with both of them occasionally helping each other with underhanded tactics behind the referee's back. They appeared to be best suited by one another, and quickly garnered a "hate to love them" type of reputation from the fans.
Despite Ashton's awareness of his past divorce with Alexandra Lynn Wolfe (better known as Xander Wolfe or occasionally Xander Starr), she still had no reservations about marrying him. In an interview she commented on the nature of their relationship and the fact that both Starr and Wolfe are now talking again, which she claims:
"He's the male version of myself, and i couldn't ask for anything more. The past doesn't matter, everyone makes mistakes. If we didn't, we wouldn't be human. I have nothing against Xander, she was a huge part of his life back then, but i'm part of his life now. I could be the jealous girlfriend, but that's not me. I have every trust in Ez and i'm more than happy the two are on speaking terms again."
The two are now residing together in West's hometown of Detroit.
On October 28, 2008, Ezra Starr and Nick Slater, also known as the ESNS Connection decided to include both Ashton and Heather Mackenzie in an alliance they called 'The Solution'. According to the quartet, their job was to solve the re-occurring "cheap imitations problem" within WCW at the time. The four were all scheduled to appear in their consecutive matches at World War III, Ashtons being a Women's Battle Royal for number one contendership to stablemate Heather Mackenzie's Women's Championship at the time. However, things turned sour and WCW closed it's doors. Her global record states she had 5 matches in total, losing only one of them - which she puts down to "Sheer luck on Trish Stratus' part.".
After the sudden closure of WCW, she was quick to follow in the footsteps of both her beau; Ezra Starr and her Solution teammates, Heather Mackenzie and Nick Slater into the path of New-Age Wrestling. On November 21, 2008 she signed a contract with the independent promotion.
On the first edition of Friday Night Fury on December 5, 2008. Which was also Ashton's 23rd birthday. She secured yet another debut victory against Colbie Stevens. A week later, on the December 12th edition, she also went on to claim yet another victory over Grace Taylor. However, the promotion was short lived due to the closure of the MSN circuit, leaving West accounting to only one loss in her entire career.
Ultimate Professional Wrestling 2k
After a two month absence over the holidays, on February 5, 2009 both West and Starr signed to a new upcoming promotion UPW2k. Wests debut match was the February 8th Special Edition of Anarchy, a handi-capped match with Heather Mackenzie against Angel Evans in which the two completely dominated, also this was the match in which Ashton debuted her new move; OhEMMGee.
A few days later, both West and Starr decided to leave the company citing that the competition there "Wasn't even in their league...". On February 20, 2009 the two were officially released of their contracts. However sources claim that West decided to take some time out from her career to return to her home state of Detroit, where her and Starr have recently set up a home, to reconcile differences with her family.
Frontiers' Pro Wrestling
On March 24, Ashton signed with FPW, joining Ezra Starr, who had signed the day before. On May 7, Nick Slater also signed with the company, citing the return of the ESNS Connection, and possibly the complete reunion of The Solution (pending Heather Mackenzie's arrival).
On the debut of FPW TV on April 25, after a heated exchange of words through each of their promos, West defeated Mary-Jane Lewis claiming the victory by hitting So Juvenile to advance to the second round of the IFGP Women's Championship tournament, bringing West's debut record to the total of 4-0. Two weeks later, she defeated Bryclynn Summers to advance to the finals of the tournament to face AJ Caine for the IFGP Women's Championship.
On the May 9th edition of FPW TV, two hooded figures, believed to be Ezra and Ashton came out and attacked Zane Raiden after his match. Ezra and Ashton then appeared on the stage, proving that it wasn't them. Later in the night after Ezra defeated Kyle Norton, Zane appeared again, as a means of revenge for the earlier tactics. However, the hooded couple once again interfered, and took out Zane before he could do any damage to Starr. They then revealed themselves to be Nick Slater and Heather Mackenzie, meaning that The Solution was once again intact. The next week on May 16, Ezton won their second match as a tag team, by defeating Marcus Slade and Tapanga Britt with Celebrity Status.
Both West and Starr had been declaring in their recent promos that they will both be "The first IFGP Junior Heavyweight and Womens Champions." On the May 23rd edition of FPW TV, West and AJ Caine had the contract signing for their upcoming IFGP Womens Championship match that is to take place at Ground Zero. Both had to agree to a no-contact law, meaning that if one competitor made contact with the other, then they would lose the title opportunity, and the other would be awarded the championship by default. After both signed the contract, Heather Mackenzie and Hadley Harper entered the ring, and proceeded to put Caine through a table while Ezton watched. After the attack, Ashton got in A.J.'s face, saying, "See you at Ground Zero, hon.".
Despite not being in any matches for an entire month, Ashton was still a presence on FPW TV, not only in the afforementioned press conference, but also in helping Ezra win his matches, such as her assist that helped him pin Blake Lovo. Her next match would be on June 20, against Lucy Von. Ashton won by disqualification when AJ Caine interfered. The rest of The Solution came down to run her off, and save Ashton from taking much damage. Their IFGP Women's Title match would never happen though, as FPW closed it's doors the next day.
Bloodstone Wrestling Federation
On June 23, Ashton and Ezra signed with BWF. Ashton won her debut match on June 28, a six-diva elimination match at Global Warming, to move onto the second round of the Women's Championship Contender's Tournament. Ashton single-handedly eliminated all five of the other competitors. The next week on PRIME, she defeated Serenity to advance to the finals of the tournament against Madison Carson. Ashton lost to Carson in the finals.
