Scarlett Bordeaux Childhood
Elizabeth Chihaia was born on May 13, 1991, in the Chicago neighborhood of Edgewater. She is of Romanian heritage and lived in Romania with her grandparents until she was four years old.
She returned to the United States and joined the chorus at Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, Illinois.
She continued her education after high school, concentrating in musical theatre and graduating from Columbia College Chicago. She studied mezzo-soprano at a conservatory.  In 2012, Chihaia made her professional wrestling debut.
Scarlett Bordeaux Wrestling career
Chihaia made her debut as Scarlett Bordeaux, defeating The Angel at a CSW Southside Showdown event on April 27, 2012. Bordeaux developed the heel persona of a superficial prima donna during this period.
Bordeaux made her Chikara debut, where she began hosting “The Throwdown Lowdown,” on which she interviewed 2 Cold Scorpio. Bordeaux has continued to present “The Throwdown Lowdown” since then.
Bordeaux returned to Chikara on March 13, 2013, as the hostess of “The Throwdown Lowdown,” replacing Natali Morris. It features fresh scenes from CHIKARA’s extensive video library, including high-impact hits, devastating spills, and interviews. Bordeaux pinned Joey Ryan to win DDT Pro Ironman Heavyweight on July 9, 2016, however, the championship was forfeited when Bordeaux exchanged the belt for Rhyno’s autograph.
Bordeaux (kayfabe) left AAW because she was tired of objectifying herself in order to satisfy the crowd and get attention, which caused her to be mistreated. Shane Hollister defeated Colt Cabana at the AAW’s “One Twisted Christmas” event on December 29, 2012. The bout had a stipulation that if Cabana won, he would get Scarlett for the week.
Bordeaux and Hollister got involved in Eddie Kingston’s feud with Silas Young by offering Dan Lawrence and Markus Crane as bodyguards to get him to agree to be his tag-team partner, which resulted in a tag team match at the AAW: EPIC – The 10th Anniversary Show event on March 24, which they lost despite Bordeaux and Jordynne Grace’s interference.
On June 20, Hollister and Bordeaux interrupted ACH at AAW’s Bound for Hate event with some psychological warfare.
She made an appearance at the AAW: Pro Wrestling Redefined’s Point of No Return event, interfering in the AAW Heavyweight Championship main event match on Shane Hollister’s side, but was speared by Jimmy Jacobs to secure Hollister’s victory.
Wrestling in the Ohio Valley
Bordeaux had a trial for Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) on August 1, 2012, when she fought former two-time OVW Women’s Champion Epiphany in a singles match.
Bordeaux returned to OVW, making her television debut on the October 3 edition of OVW Episode 685, when she wrestled against then OVW Women’s Champion Heidi Lovelace in a losing effort following the bout.
Bordeaux won her first victory later that night in her second battle of the night, defeating three-time champion “The (Irish) Redheaded Bombshell” Taeler Hendrix in a dark match.
Bordeaux was defeated by The Queen of OVW and seven-time champion Josette Bynum in a minute to win to select the final participant for the triple-threat match to face Taeler Hendrix and then Women’s Champion Heidi Lovelace despite Taeler Hendrix’s meddling.
Bordeaux competed in a Halloween costume battle royal on the same show, but she was unable to become the number one challenger for the OVW Women’s Championship, which was won by Jessie Belle. Bordeaux made her final OVW appearance on November 22nd’s OVW Episode 692, where she was defeated by new OVW Women’s Champion Taryn Terrell.
Ring of Honor
Scarlett made her Ring of Honor debut as a villain on the 11th Anniversary Show, joining the new member of The House of Truth Matt Taven, and the heel Truth Martini for his fight against Adam Cole for the ROH World Television Championship.
Since then, she and Seleziya Sparx–dubbed the Hoopla Hotties–have been accompanying Taven to his contests.
Bordeaux made her ROH debut on the April 6 program, when she pinned Cherry Bomb with her “O-Face” finishing in a Four Corners “Women of Honor” match against Cherry Bomb, MsChif, and eventual victor Athena.
On the April 20, 2013, edition of ROH Wrestling, she assisted Taven in a victory against ACH by distracting the official, allowing Taven to win.
The Hoopla Hotties accompanied Matt Taven to the ring at the Border Wars pay-per-view, where he successfully defended the ROH World Television Championship against Mark Briscoe after Bordeaux’s interruption.
Bordeaux appeared in a number of “Hoopla Hoties” segments, including “Take Your Pants Off Dance-Off,” as well as performing the H.O.T. National Anthem and intervening in the triple-treat match on Taven’s behalf at the “Night of Hoopla” pay-per-view.
Scarlett was unable to manage Taven in his Ring of Honor World Championship Tournament bout on the September 14 broadcast of ROH Wrestling when announcer Nigel McGuinness revealed that Bordeaux did not have a proper managers license, forcing her to sit at ringside.
Scarlett and Kasey appeared on the Glory by Honor XII pay-per-view. Ray attempted to persuade Jay Lethal during the Champions vs. All-Stars 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match, but was unsuccessful, resulting in Ray being thrown through a table.
After losing the title to Tommaso Ciampa, Taven dismissed Truth Martini, therefore ending their relationship with Bordeaux and Martini.
Scarlett was no longer a ‘Hoopla Hottie’ when The House of Truth disbanded at the beginning of 2014, and she began to split ring announcer responsibilities with Bobby Cruise during ROH television tapings and live events.
Scarlett announced at ROH’s 12th Anniversary Show as part of her ring announcing responsibilities, a moment she subsequently cited as a favorite in her career alongside her in-ring debut and stint as a “Hoopla Hottie.”
Scarlett joined up with Taeler Hendrix and “Crazy” Mary Dobson in a losing effort to the team of Veda Scott, Heather Patera, and Leah von Dutch at the ROH Unauthorized presents: “Michael Bennett’s Bachelor Party” pay-per-view when Scott pinned Bordeaux following a back-drop driver.
Bordeaux competed in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling’s One Night Only Knockouts Knockdown pay-per-view on May 10, 2014, facing TNA Women’s Knockouts Champion Angelina Love, but failed to qualify for the Knockouts Gauntlet match later that night to crown the “Queen of the Knockouts.”
Bordeaux made her Impact debut on the July 26, 2018, show during an interview with Alicia Atout.
