Birth name: Milena Leticia Roucka
Born: October 25, 1979 (age 35) | Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Resides: Las Vegas, Nevada
Raised by a single father and her sister, Roucka grew up being a tomboy. She studied Business at the University of British Columbia initially, but realized her interests lay elsewhere. She dropped out, later pursuing a career in modeling. This became quite a success, since she won the “Piel Dorada,” one of the biggest Latin American based modeling contests, in 2004. There, she made history by becoming the first North American to triumph. Later on, Roucka acted in commercials for Trident, Chrysler, and Lux soap.
Her first WWE appearance was in the 2006 Diva Search, where she participated and finished fourth. This led to her being hired by the company, along with other eliminated contestants. Roucka soon found herself assigned at Ohio Valley Wrestling, and worked as a heel. Her next move was becoming a valet for Bad Kompany, but made her in-ring debut in April 2007. Later in September, she won a 6-way OVW divas match, for the OVW Women’s Championship and retained the title in December. However, she lost it in February 2008 to Katie Lea.
It was in March of that year that Roucka gradually moved on to Florida Championship Wrestling and debuted in a Diva Twist Off. She defeated Wesley Holiday, but later teamed up with her and Alicia Fox. Later that year, Mendes made her WWE debut as Beth Phoenix’s biggest fan, and the “Loca Latina” was born!
