Born and raised in Rosedale, Maryland, a community within Baltimore County, Maryland, Keibler studied ballet, jazz dance and tap dance at a dance school nearby in Dundalk. She later became one of the cheerleaders for the NFL's Baltimore Ravens, being the youngest of the group. Stacy also attended Towson University while earning near-perfect grades in Mass communication.
World Championship Wrestling
In 1999, she entered a contest held by WCW to become one of their Nitro Girls, which she won. Initially a Nitro Girl, she soon became a valet using the provocative stage name Miss Hancock (originally supposed to have been Miss Handcock), briefly serving as an associate for the tag team of Lenny Lane and Lodi dubbed "Standards and Practices". Despite wearing business suits, her character would often climb on top of tables and dance for the announcers' and fans' approval. After the team "fired" her, she went on to become the manager for Los Fabulosos, a Latin American tag team consisting of Silver King and El Dandy, leading them to their first major victories within WCW.
For a brief period, she began to date David Flair, who was already involved in a faux relationship with Daffney. That led to a battle with her at the Bash at the Beach in a Wedding Gown Match, which she lost, after she, as well as David Flair and the referee, were left in the ring in their underwear.
Stacy also had a short feud with Kimberly Page early in her career.
World Wrestling Entertainment
When WCW was purchased by the WWF in 2001, Stacy's contract was one of 24 that were retained by the WWF. In her first angle, Stacy portrayed a heel character in The Alliance. Her first appearance for the WWF was on SmackDown! when Shane McMahon brought her to the ring to distract Rhyno, causing him to lose a match. Stacy originally teamed up with real-life friend and fellow villainess Torrie Wilson and the pair feuded with WWF divas Trish Stratus and Lita. They lost to Trish and Lita in the first ever tag team bra and panties match at Invasion.
During the WCW/ECW Invasion, she managed The Dudley Boyz, during which time she was nicknamed the "Duchess of Dudleyville" by announcer Paul Heyman. She feuded with Torrie Wilson after Wilson left The Alliance. Keibler faced Wilson in the first-ever lingerie match at WWE No Mercy. Hitting Stacy with a kick to the groin, Wilson won the contest.
Stacy was originally drafted to the SmackDown! brand in 2002, where she participated in a comedy segment involving Vince McMahon hiring a personal assistant. McMahon was ready to hire another attractive female until Stacy interrupted and demonstrated why she should get the job by giving him a table dance. Stacy became Vince's assistant as well as his onscreen mistress until Stephanie McMahon became general manager of the SmackDown! brand. Dawn Marie made her debut on SmackDown! as Vince's legal assistant who competed with Stacy for McMahon's affections.
A key storyline for Keibler's on-screen character was when she left SmackDown! for RAW with a contract for a title match between Benoit and RVD at the pay-per-view. During her time on RAW Stacy managed Scott Steiner and Test, the latter of which was her real-life boyfriend at the time. She was also involved in eventual feud between those two. As Test's on-screen marketing agent, she invented the idea that Test should call his fans "Testicles," cut his hair and reshape his image. However, in a storyline, Test became jealous of Stacy wanting to also be Steiner's manager. During a match on RAW, Test turned heel and started to verbally abuse Stacy. Steiner managed to defeat Test for Stacy's services, and Stacy seemed happy as Steiner's new manager. Test, however, was not happy at all, and petitioned for an intergender tag team match, pitting himself and former rival Chris Jericho against Scott and Stacy, to win back the services of Stacy. Test delivered a low blow to Stacy to pick up the win.
A match was set for WWE Unforgiven, the stipulation being if Test won, he would not only retain Stacy's services, but those of Scott Steiner as well. Stacy attempted to whack Test with a chair, but he ducked and she hit Steiner instead. Steiner later turned heel by attacking Stacy when she botched another interference next RAW. Finally, General Manager Mick Foley put a stop to the abusive Test and Steiner and freed Stacy from her obligatory contracts with the pair.
Stacy was chosen to record a track on the album WWE Originals. She and WWE music producer Jim Johnston recorded the track "Why Can't We Just Dance?" for the album. Other tracks were performed by Superstars such as Chris Jericho, Lilian Garcia and John Cena, each of which had their own music career. Her track was used on an episode of RAW for herself, during the 2004 RAW Diva Search and even on the Viva Las Diva of the WWE DVD.
As one of the more popular RAW face Divas, Stacy took over the 2004 RAW Diva Search for a few weeks. That was followed by a dance competition with Molly. This led to her participating in some tag matches against villainous Divas such as Gail Kim, Trish Stratus and Molly Holly. Her partners were then WWE star, Nidia and then babyface, Victoria. Stacy showed off much improved wrestling skills, managing to get upset wins against Molly, Gail, and Trish. She even got herself a Women's Championship title match on October 11, 2004. However, Trish defeated her to retain the title.
Stacy was voted as the 2004 WWE Babe of the Year, being the first WWE Diva to beat Trish Stratus in the Babe of the Year competition (Trish was 2001-2003 Babe of the Year). As a result of this, Stacy appeared on RAW following her victory and told everyone that she would bend over backwards to make the fans happy.
Stacy soon began an angle with popular superstar Randy Orton. After kissing him on the cheek during a backstage segment on RAW, there looked to possibly be a romance there. Randy even saved her from receiving a Pedigree from the villainous Triple H. Stacy never accompanied Randy to his matches, which confused the fans about the relationship. She supported him from backstage and was never considered his manager. The storyline never really made any advances, and as Randy challenged the Undertaker to a match at WrestleMania 21, Randy ended the relationship by giving her an RKO, justifying this evil act by claiming he was demonstrating just how ruthless he could be in order to defeat the Undertaker. In the end, Stacy's involvement with Orton was a device for his inevitable heel turn. Orton was the third on screen boyfriend to betray Stacy. The two others were Test and Scott Steiner.
Keibler would go on to join forces with Hurricane and Rosey. She became 1/3 of their trio as Super Stacy. During this time, Stacy was credited as having one of her best matches to date with WWE Diva, Victoria, on an international edition of WWE HEAT.
Stacy was then moved to SmackDown! as part of a trade with Christy Hemme, bringing Torrie Wilson and Candice Michelle to RAW. Keibler started a short feud with the evil Jillian Hall, which ended up with the two having a match on Velocity, during which Hall captured the victory through cheating and a dirty strike to the groin.
Keibler appeared on the hit show Dancing with the Stars, placing third. Recaps were aired weekly on RAW, which was believed to be because of a conflict with SmackDown! and UPN not wanting to promote a rival network. After a few weeks, her profile was moved over from SmackDown! to RAW.
In April 2006, Vegas Magazine reported that Stacy Keibler was done with WWE and moving on to other endeavors. Keibler posted a message on her official website saying that her WWE contract expired on July 21, 2006. Her profile was removed from the RAW roster on the WWE official website (wwe.com).

One issue of Stuff Magazine speaks of how she recently attempted a 450 lb leg press. Although unable to push it, she did manage a 405lb leg press.

Keibler moved to Los Angeles in 2004, where she was a roommate with her friend, Torrie Wilson. In June 2005, Keibler was reported to be in a relationship with actor Geoff Stults, best known for his appearances on 7th Heaven. The pair appeared together on MTV's Punk'd, with Keibler as the recipient of the prank. Keibler and Stults were part-owners of the now defunct Hollywood Fame, a 2006 expansion franchise of the new American Basketball Association. Stults and Keibler split in the middle of 2010.
