Such tenacity should not come as a shock - having undergone surgery at 18 to remove a brain tumor that was causing her regular seizures.
Following a successful spell in Japan, Priestley returned to RIPTIDE, fighting alongside Toni Storm in a wild but ultimately unsuccessful Brighton Championship Tournament qualifier against Damon Moser & Chris Ridgeway (Money vs Everybody).
Priestley has since signed to All Elite Wrestling in the United States and has captured gold at STARDOM in Japan.
