Kacy Catanzaro Life

Kacy Esther Catanzaro (born January 14, 1990) is an American professional wrestler, gymnast and athletics-based television personality.

She was the first woman to qualify for the finals of the television sports show American Ninja Warrior and the first woman to complete a City Finals course.

During her time in WWE, she competed in the 2018 Mae Young Classic and participated in the 2019 Royal Rumble match.

Early life and education

Born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, Catanzaro grew up in nearby Belleville, where she attended Belleville High School. She is of Italian descent. She stands about 5 ft (1.524 m) tall and weighs 100 pounds (45 kg). She began doing gymnastics at age 5. She attended Towson University in Towson, Maryland, from 2009 until 2012, studying early childhood education on an athletic scholarship.


Kacy Catanzaro Career

Gymnastics career

Catanzaro was a Junior Olympic gymnast who began training at the age of 6. She reached level ten in 2007 and placed fifth in the Senior-A division of the New Jersey State Championships, where she finished fifth in the Senior division. Catanzaro also competed at the 2008 New Jersey Level 10 State Championships, where she finished third and advanced to the 2008 Junior Olympic National Championships. She came in 23nd overall, but on the balance beam she came in 6th place.

In Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Catanzaro competed in gymnastics for Towson. She made her debut in the 2009 season. In 2009 and 2010, Catanzaro helped the Towson gymnastics team win the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships. In her senior year, she was named the Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year in 2012. She was also named the 2012 Eastern College Athletic Conference Gymnast of the Year, and she was the top-ranked competitor in that conference for the first time last year.

Obstacle competitor career

From February 2013, she worked for Alpha Warrior, an obstacle-course gym in San Antonio, Texas.

Catanzaro trained for American Ninja Warrior, alongside her then-boyfriend and co-companent Brent Steffensen. She did not complete the qualifying course in Venice, California, but she was still an invited wildcard in the 2013 finals, where she crashed early on the Giant cycle/ring.

Catanzaro made it up the warped wall in competition in 2014, becoming the first woman to complete the American Ninja Warrior (season 6). Catanzaro competed in the Dallas finals of American Ninja Warrior later this year. She was the first woman to complete a city finals course (and the second woman to try it after Jessie Graff in season 5), qualifying for the national finals in Las Vegas in 8 minutes, 59 seconds. (Not until five years later, during the 2019 season, was her achievement of a woman completing a City Finals course matched)

"I've seen greatness during my NFL career," host Akbar Gbaja-Biamila remarked, "I've been in awe of Kacy." Many of the obstacles seemed difficult to cope with, and in one case, she had to leap between boards whereas other runners could traverse them. With her run being watched more than 100 million times on Twitter, she made her a social media sensation; supporters of #MightyKacy coined the phrase on Twitter.

In Las Vegas, Catanzaro failed to complete the first stage of the National Finals. She made it past the first three obstacles, including the Giant Ring and the Silk Slider, before crashing into the Jumping Spider, where her entire length was simply too short to hold the position.

Catanzaro failed to finish the course in the 2015 Houston Qualifying Round (season 7). She was given a wild card spot in Las Vegas but she didn't succeed due to a delayed trampoline hop at the Propeller Bar in Stage 1 of the national finals. She was reportedly tearful in her post-run interview with Kristine Leahy, and by this time, she was under pressure to live up to her television fame as Ninja's top female rival.

Catanzaro was invited to compete in the 32nd annual edition of ANW Sasuke's original Japanese version. Catanzaro did a good job on the final obstacle, the Lumberjack Climb, arriving on time. Since the course's upgrade and increased difficulty, Catanzaro set the fastest female athlete to complete stage 1 since the 2nd edition (until 2017 when Jessie Graff completed stage 1 and became the first woman to complete stage 2).

Catanzaro failed to finish the course in the 2016 Oklahoma City Qualifying round (season 8), but she was later given a Wild Card spot in Las Vegas. She fell on Stage 1 of the Las Vegas National Finals.

The Team Ninja Warrior College Madness collection of shows was co-hosted by Catanzaro in December 2016.

In 2017, Catanzaro competed in the American Ninja Warrior season 9 in San Antonio's city qualifier and finals. In the former, she failed on the fourth hurdle, but she did well enough to qualify for the city finals under show's new rules. She had her best showing since 2014 in this area, beating the Sky Hooks and the fifth wall, which she was unable to conquer, in the fifth run. Nevertheless, she qualified for the national finals. She failed on Stage 1 at the national finals.

Catanzaro announced her exit from American Ninja Warrior in 2017, with season 9 being her last.
