Narrator:  Wrestling was not supposed to be a career for Hayley Fien. The rising sensation from Five Boroughs Wrestling hailing from New Jersey, had a tryout with the Philadelphia Eagles organization as a cheerleader because Hayley was a standout cheerleader and a gymnast at Wildwood High School.

I did not expect her to take this path. Everyone at Wildwood High School knew she would be the biggest star coming out of our class back in 2012. I remember sitting with her at lunch, and she would talk to me about all these dreams she had. Hayley wanted to be the best and busted her ass hard to be the best.

The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading squad was a mission because the Eagles are my hometown team. I made this choice because my mom always told me “reach for the stars.” I did not want to become a teacher, doctor, lawyer. All the things teens would say because they wanted to go to college. Me? I wanted to be a performer, and I remember trying out for my hometown team.

Narrator: Hayley would eventually try out for the Eagles. She did get the spot but had to pull out because of a family tragedy – her brother passed away from an accident, which took a lot on the Fien family.

I remember when Hayley’s brother, Kerry, was killed in a car accident. It was also the same day that Hayley won the spot on the team. I was working two jobs to support my three kids, one of them being Hayley. When Hayley found out about this, she put everything on hold and wanted to care for her sister, herself, and I.  I knew she had her dreams, but in this case, those had to be on hold for her family.

Hayley Fien

The organization was very understanding. It was family over this dream I wanted to accomplish. My mom was working a customer service job as well as being a house cleaner for houses. Sure, the pay was right for her, but I wanted to be that support system. So I took a job at a Gentlemen’s Club as a cocktail waitress. The tips were useful because the customers at the club were high rollers and thought I was pretty to be on the stage.

There was a lot of jealousy going around with Hayley and most of the girls. I am not going to front regarding that. Hayley was beautiful. She was gaining the money where most of the girls that were on the stage wanted to be like her. They wanted the money, but most of the money went to Hayley.

I was one of the girls that got into a fight with Hayley. I was dancing on the stage, and she was serving someone drinks. So I got off the stage and threw down with her. I was expecting her not to fight back, but I regretted it.

Inna Ortiz-Roman
Hayley’s Best Friend

Hayley getting into a fight is really rare, but when I heard she did at work. I was in shock.

Hayley Fien

[Beep] and I was working the same shift. She was dancing, and I was serving the drinks. Jealousy is a cruel thing at these clubs. So she comes off the stage in the middle of the song, grabs my hair, and slams me down. She stands over me, puts her hand in my face, and points how dare I take the attention away from her! That was not the purpose of me doing that, so I fought back and gave her a black eye.

“Mariah”
Hayley’s Former Co-Worker

That fight was wild. Hayley stood her ground.

Hayley Fien

After the entire fight went down, I went home to my house and looked up wrestling schools. I was sick and tired of being tossed around like shit, especially from that place. Once I found wrestling that was in New York, it was time to go and do this.

Narrator: We reached out to the manager of the club for details regarding the fight, but he was not available for comment*


Narrator: Hayley Fien would move up to New York City, where she would enroll in a school that was run by Jamey Caresalle, Sarah McCarthy, and Meagan G, who are a part of the Five Boroughs Wrestling brand.

Meagan G
Softball Night Academy Teacher/5BW Wrestling General Manager

When CKP was still running, Sarah, myself, and Jamey opened a school back in 2017 where we wanted to bring in the next generation. That is where I saw Hayley Fien and noticed that she wanted to be here.

Jamey Caresalle
Five Boroughs Wrestling Commentator

Hayley stood out over everyone in that class, and I knew she would be big. The young lady was there early, training and getting a head start. It was Sarah that took her under her wing and showed her everything.

Sarah McCarthy
Softball Night Academy Teacher/5BW Consultant to the GM

Taking her under my wing was a lot of pressure on me too. I remember when (Dave) Holmes, who was running the company telling Meagan and myself, Hayley must have a match. She would fit well with the women’s division. So, we put her against Joanna Penkzee-Nelson, the sister of Kelly Penkzee-Nelson.

Narrator: Hayley had her match against Joanna Penkzee-Nelson. It was during this match, Hayley was in a freak accident where her nose got busted open. The referee stopped the match because of the blood. Meagan G does not do well with blood.

Meagan G
Softball Night Academy Teacher/5BW Wrestling General Manager

I puked when I saw Hayley’s face explode like that – it was the grossest shit I ever seen, but then again, I am used to seeing blood, but not coming out bad like that.

Marie Thompson
Hayley’s Mother

When I got the call that I had to go up to New York because of the broken nose incident, I was angry. I marched into the hospital, caused a scene, and yelled at everyone. I had to be calmed down because this was my daughter.

Hayley Fien

My mom is very protective of me, and Joanna was very apologetic about the whole thing. Once that happened, my mom was OK, and I kept on going with my training. I was getting so close to signing with CKP, but something happened with the company in April.

Meagan G
Softball Night Academy Teacher/5BW Wrestling General Manager

Hayley was about to be called up and sign a contract, but because of something happening with CKP, the company shut down, leaving all of us either in New York or going back home to our hometowns. Most of us stood in New York, especially Hayley Fien, because the drive was there. We wanted a comeback, but we were losing up until my uncle said to me, “Look, I know wrestling is one thing you care for. Dora Richardson called, and I am sharing most of my portion to her.”

Narrator: Right then and there, Five Boroughs Wrestling was born thanks to Kieran Quinn, Sarah McCarthy, Meagan G, Melanie O’Flynn, and Dora Richardson. They signed as many people as they can such as Samantha Tolson, Brittani Helms, Lex Collins, Mary Ellen Harrison, Amy Harrison, Sabrina Baker, Luciana Verdoza. Hayley Fien was also signed to the roster and is considered the first person along with Asia Jones to have the first-ever Five Boroughs Wrestling Match on June 30th, 2019, at Vendetta: Beginnings.

When Hayley called me up and said she would have her first match, I made sure to come up to the Bronx and celebrate this with her. Even though it was not cheerleading, it was performing, and Hayley was about to do that. I screamed so loud for her that I lost my voice the next day.

Asia Jones

Being in the ring with Hayley Fien, despite being on the losing end, was a great moment for the company. Nobody can take that away from us! 

Hayley Fien

Being out there against Asia Jones was fantastic, and I will always have that honor, along with her being the first wrestler to go out there and have the first match ever for the company. However, as I realized that along the way, there is going to be frustration, and that’s what I was feeling during the first season, frustration.

Narrator: The frustration was building as Hayley was on a losing streak going into mid-2020. It got to the point where Hayley went to Meagan G and Kieran Quinn to talk with her about leaving.

Kieran Quinn
5BW Assistant General Manager

Hayley was frustrated about being on the losing end of everything and felt like she was losing hope. In April, when Meagan returned from having her daughter, she pulled us into the office and said that this was not going her way. She was on the shows, but she was losing matches and hope.

Meagan G
Softball Night Academy Teacher/5BW Wrestling General Manager

Hayley was talking about leaving towards the end of her contract. I had to go to Dora Richardson and talk with her about Hayley. Vendetta was our biggest show of the year, and something had to be done. Brittani Helms happened to be by, and she said, “maybe give her a match against me.” Last year, many things were going on, and it was especially important for Five Boroughs Wrestling.

Brittani Helms

Hayley needed some tough love, and I gave it to her.

Narrator: At Vendetta, Brittani Helms and Hayley Fien faced off against each other. Hayley was on the losing end of the match but was shown respect afterward.

Brittani Helms

That moment was important for us because there was a lot of tension going on in our country at the time, and bringing us two together showed that we need to respect each other regardless of how we feel with everything going around us. 

Hayley Fien

I needed that, and Brittani was the perfect person to give me that tough love. When we fist-bumped in respect, I decided to stay with the company, and along the way, I gained a boyfriend in Noris Cranley.

Hayley blushes a bit because of the love she has for Noris Cranley and the love he has for her.

Inna Ortiz-Roman
Hayley’s Best Friend

Noris and Hayley are meant to be. I know Hayley had boyfriends, who were assholes to her, but this one is a pure gentleman and a winner.


Narrator: Hayley was running high in the summer of 2020, teaming up with her boyfriend being by his side, but the icing on the cake was her getting a role in the hit series “The Restaurant,” a goal she was waiting for the longest.

Hayley Fien

When I found out that the Restaurant was looking for people, I told Dora about it, and she said to me that Kieran Quinn and Gabe Khane were taking part. She said, “go for it,” and within a couple of days, I had the role of Ellen Sinclair.

Marie Thompson
Hayley’s Mother

She called me up, SCREAMING because she got the role. Ever since she was a little girl, performing was one thing that she wanted to do, and this was it. Judging by the calls I was getting from her, she was having a blast along with being with Noris.

Hayley Fien

I cannot really spoil what goes on, but if you have been watching the series, it gets intense, but I will say this. Everyone on that set was fun and professional. Some scenes were intense, but we kept calm and collective. That is why I loved doing it.

Narrator: Soon as filming wrapped up, the Second Season of Five Boroughs Wrestling kicked off, where a lot of things went down. Hayley broke the hand of Luciana Verdoza, competed in a flag match in a cemetery, and had her hand broken in November from Luciana Verdoza. On top of that, she’s been teaming with Noris and Dakota Mendoza in this blood feud against the Damned Ones.

Hayley Fien

Many things have been going down with me ever since that happened, but I am hell-bent on making things right for the Second half of the Season. Dakota and I have problems with both Sabrina Baker and Luciana Verdoza, while Noris have problems with Rachel Faust.

We see Hayley in the gym training harder than ever.

Hayley Fien

Even if it must kill me, I will defeat everything that comes after me. I did it once before, and I will do it again. The Damned Ones do not have a clue what may happen to them. They may be running this course, but the evil empire will have to fall in the end.

Sabrina Baker
5BW Fighter

Hayley Fien should watch her goddamn back around this place!  I have no problem breaking her spirit, along with Rachel breaking her soul and Luciana ending her career as well. Her, Dakota, and Noris don’t scare us at all!

Narrator: Only time will tell with Hayley Fien in Five Boroughs Wrestling. Hayley has a bright future, but she does have a lot of obstacles to climb.

Hayley Fien

One Day, I will become the Five Boroughs Wrestling Champion. Not now, but when I am ready, I will become the champion. I just must get things out of my way before going up top.
