Amy Weber was part of the 2004 WWE Diva Search and though she didn't win, she did end up with a WWE contract. Weber went on to occupy an on-screen role as John Layfield's image consultant as part of JBL's Cabinet.

She left WWE in 2005, citing allegations of harassment.

In a new video on her YouTube page, Weber detailed the incident that led to her WWE departure.

"I was training behind the scenes to have a real wrestling match. Joy [Giovanni] and I had been working really hard. Every time we got to a new city, I would rehearse and practice. We had like a seven city tour in ten days. While we were in Japan, I was practicing, I was supposed to grab the rope to break my fall and unfortunately, I couldn't get back to the rope. She kicked me a little hard in the stomach, it was fine, it wasn't her fault. I landed on my tailbone. They thought I might have cracked it. The trainer told me to go into the men's locker room and grab two ibuprofen, which I did, and some ice."

She continued, "When I was on the plane on the way back, I was laying across three seats. We were all sleeping. Randy Orton decided to come up behind my chair and he slammed into it like a linebacker so hard that I landed on the floor. Then he said to me, 'You're gonna learn [bitch].' I didn't understand what he was talking about. I went back to sleep. I was awoken by someone pouring a drink in my face. I looked up and saw Edge with a partially drained drink. I stood up on the airplane seat and said, 'Do you have a problem with me? You wanna fight me? You wanna be a man?' He kept denying it. I saw the cup in his hand."

Weber said that when the plane landed in Alaska, she spoke to Shane McMahon and decided she was going to leave, feeling that she couldn't continue in an environment where she wasn't respected.

Weber continued to work in the entertainment industry, working on movies and in music before transitioning to a career in real estate. Orton and Edge remain in WWE.
