Career and Life

Carlene Denise Moore-Begnaud is an American professional wrestler, better known by her ring name Jazz. She is best known for her tenure in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where she was a two-time WWE Women's Champion. Recently she was best known for competing for the National Wrestling Alliance, where she held the NWA World Women's Championship for over 900 days.

In high school, Carlene played basketball. She also had a basketball scholarship in college until a knee injury ended her basketball career. She later dropped out of college to work.

Carlene is married to Rodney Begnaud, who also competed as Rodney Mack in WWE. They live together in Lafayette, Louisiana on 25 acres (100,000 m2) of land. The couple welcomed twin girls named Summer and Skye in November 2008.

She owns a fitness gym, which according to her is to "keep the youth off the streets and keep them positive." She also runs a wrestling school with her husband called The Dog Pound.

In July 2016, she was named part of a class action lawsuit filed against WWE which alleged that wrestlers incurred traumatic brain injuries during their tenure and that the company concealed the risks of injury. The suit is litigated by attorney Konstantine Kyros, who has been involved in a number of other lawsuits against WWE. The lawsuit was dismissed by US District Judge Vanessa Lynne Bryant in September 2018.
