In 1982, Desiree Peterson and a friend who was also interested in pro wrestling met Stu Hart. She became friends with Hart, but he advised against training with the Hart Boys and recommended she apply to The Fabulous Moolah's wrestling camp instead. She joined Moolah's school and made her professional debut in January 1983 against Velvet McIntyre at a British Columbia venue. In December of 1984, Peterson replaced Princess Victoria as McIntyre's tag team partner using the name Melissa Doll. During the 1984-1985 time period, Peterson competed in both team and solo matches against such favorites as Judy Martin and Leilani Kai. Together, Peterson and McIntyre held the WWF Women's Tag Team Championship until they parted ways in 1985. Petersen left the WWF for the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association (LPWA) around that same time where she competed in their pay-per-view event in which she was defeated by Shinobu Kandori. Desiree eventually returned to the WWF in 1988 and embarked on a feud with the WWF Women's Champion, Sherri Martel. In addition to Canada and the United States, Peterson wrestled in Denmark and Japan. Perhaps as a result of her stint with the All Japan Women's Wrestling, she claims to feud with all Japanese women wrestlers. Petersen wrestled against many well known competitors including long time favorites such as Moolah and Leilani Kai along with some of the current slate such as Brandi Wine and Lorelei Lee. Her career spanned nearly three decades by the time she retired in 2007.
