Jennifer Patricia Alvarez (née Spencer) (born July 8, 1982) is an American professional wrestler best known for her time with World Elite Wrestling and Ohio Wrestling Federation. Alvarez is a former one-time OWF Women's Champion; having won the title in her OWF debut on January 10, 2016 at OWF 50.
Along with her wrestling career, Spencer is also a singer-songwriter. She is currently signed to 870 Records based out of Nashville, Tennessee and started working on her debut album shortly there afterwards, See You Again. In July 2013 the first single titled "See You Again" was released with the album getting released on November 30th, 2013. Spencer has since decided to take a sabbatical from her singing career and put all of her focus onto her wrestling career, before later revealing in November 2014 that she had no plans whatsoever for a new album and was still focusing on her wrestling, she hasn't ruled out doing another album down the line.
In November 2013, Spencer signed a wrestling contract with World Elite Wrestling and was assigned to their Animosity brand where she made her debut that same month. She was immediately thrown into a tag team with then WEW Starlets Champion Courtney Rimes where they dubbed themselves Southern Country. The team would come to an end in April 2014 after Rimes turned on Spencer.
Shortly after this and after Rimes had decided to leave WEW, Spencer received a big push as well as dyed her hair red and later turned heel herself and started feuding with WEW Women's Champion Tiffany Krys a feud that would last five months that ended in September 2014. Immediately afterwards Spencer was thrusted into a feud against Ashley Tierney and Jasmine known collectively as Beautiful B.O.S.S. Spencer later turned face for the first time since April 2014.
Around this time Rimes made her return and saved Spencer from a two on one beatdown from Tierney and Jasmine. This was later revealed to be a one-time return as Rimes had only signed a short term contract with WEW for the 100th episode of Animosity that took place on November 3, 2014. In October 2014 to go along with the face turn, Spencer dyed her hair brown which is in fact her natural hair color, before going back to her red hair shortly there afterwards and beginning a feud with the returning Stasi Savage in late 2014, before aligning herself with C.J. Sweet.

In July 2013 the first single titled "See You Again" was released to positive reviews from music critics. Billboard.com described the song to be "truly a taste of heaven." Liv Carter of Urban Country News gave the song a "thumbs up", adding "what pulls it over the line however, and presumably why it has become a fan-favorite, is its sincerity in wishing to bring comfort and Spencer’s confident performance." "See You Again" tells the story of moving onwards after experiencing the death of a loved one in life. The lyrics provide hope and promise through Andrews' strong Christian faith that one will reunite with every fallen loved one in the afterlife. The song's opening consists of a solo piano, followed by a backing chorus and band kicking in shortly after. The album was released worldwide on November 30th, 2013. Spencer later revealed that she was taking a break from music to focus on her professional wrestling career, also citing that she was a little burnt out and was having trouble with coming to terms with her bandmates on their next album. In a September 2014 interview, Spencer revealed that at the time she had no intentions of continuing her music career and was focusing everything on her wrestling career and had no desire to return.
