Moon Shadow is a musician and professional wrestling personality who uses the stage name Goldylocks or Goldy Locks. Shadow is perhaps best known for her appearances with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as an interviewer and manager.
Shadow was born to hippie parents in a “financially challenged” neighborhood in North Minneapolis, Minnesota. She taught herself how to play the guitar, keyboard, and violin.
Pre-wrestling musical career
By 1999, Shadow was an opening act for artists like Pink. In 2000, Futuristic Records released her single “Kiss,” a song she wrote and recorded in English, French, and Spanish. Within weeks, the song became runaway success in the American Midwest, remaining in the Top 10 for over 17 weeks. Total Nonstop Action Wrestling has used several of Goldy Locks’ songs, most notably the tracks “Take It Out On You” for Alissa Flash, “Dodging Bullets” for Trinity, “Broken” for Tara, “Hands Of Wicked” for Winter and “The Man In Me” for TNA Entertainment President Dixie Carter.

One of Shadow’s concerts caught the attention of the upstart wrestling company NWA:TNA, who then hired her. Shadow took on the stage name Goldylocks and as a backstage interviewer who openly backtalked the wrestlers
and later became a valet with a rich-girl gimmick.
She first managed Erik Watts, her kayfabe love interest.
Later, Goldylocks broke up with Watts and Abyss became her protector. Goldylocks had Abyss wrestle Watts, announcing her money was up for grabs against Watts’ contract.
Abyss won, and she sold the contract to bring in rookie Alex Shelley. Goldylocks and her new “Baby Bear” Shelley went on to claim more contracts in future matches, using Abyss (who was treated as “extra luggage”) to lay claim to Sonny Siaki, D-Ray 3000, and Shark Boy. In these tag matches, Goldylocks had Abyss do all the work and then brought in Shelley to pin their opponent. When Watts returned to TNA, a match was set up matching Watts, Siaki, and Desire against Abyss, Goldylocks, and Shelley. Abyss turned on Goldylocks in this match and finally left her. Shadow left TNA shortly after, and turned her attention back to music.
She continues to lend her services to the company, in the form of vocals for the theme songs of several TNA Knockouts as well as president Dixie Carter-Salinas.
