World Wrestling Entertainment
In July 2004, Michelle auditioned to be a contestant for World Wrestling Entertainment's RAW Diva Search. Despite not being chosen to be in the final ten, she was hired by the company under the gimmick of a makeup artist. She competed on RAW in several Diva contests, including lingerie fashion shows and limbo contests, until the end of the year.On June 30, 2005 Candice was moved to SmackDown! where she became involved in an angle (storyline) between Torrie Wilson and Melina.On July 24, Candice made her pay-per-view debut at The Great American Bash where she served as the Special Guest Referee for the Bra and Panties match between Wilson and Melina. She was then moved back to RAW in a trade along with Wilson. In her next angle, Candice and Torrie turned heel by taunting 2005 Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro and joined forces with fellow RAW Diva Victoria. The three-Diva stable became known as Ladies in Pink (later Vince's Devils, a play on the Charlie's Angels television series and films). They continued feuding with Massaro until Trish Stratus returned from a legitimate injury to help Massaro "retaliate" against Vince's Devils. In November, Candice signed on to pose for the April 2006 issue of Playboy.
She was booked to have her first shot at the WWE Women's Championship in a Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday and was eliminated from the match by Ashley Massaro.
In January, Candice appeared at New Year's Revolution in the first ever Bra and Panties Gauntlet match, where she was eliminated by Maria. After being booked to win a number one contender's Diva battle royal on RAW, Candice got her first singles WWE Women's Championship match, but lost to then-champion Trish Stratus on February 27. After the match, Candice slapped Wilson, kayfabe blaming her for the loss.
Candice Michelle's Playboy magazine coverVince's Devils later broke up when Wilson turned face after Candice and Victoria turned on her during Candice's Playboy cover unveiling. This feud led to a match at WrestleMania 22 in which both Playboy cover girls competed in a Playboy Pillow Fight. Wilson won the match, but the feud continued sporadically in backstage segments where Candice was Vince McMahon's kayfabe "sex slave".
On the July 17 edition of RAW, Candice was the Special Guest Referee during a tag team match of Stratus and Wilson against Victoria and Mickie James. Mickie James entered the match without being tagged in so Candice threw her out of the ring. Afterwards, Victoria tried to clothesline Candice but she ducked out of the way, allowing Stratus to hit the Stratusfaction for the victory. As a result of this predetermined end to the match, Candice turned face.
After Unforgiven, Candice was booked to win a match against Lita the next night on RAW. The next week, in her second match against Lita, Candice was pinned after interference from Edge, in the first round of the WWE Women's Championship tournament. She later competed in the first ever Extreme Strip Poker segment on ECW on October 10, representing RAW.
On the November 27 edition of RAW, during the Diva battle royal, Candice suffered a legitimate broken nose when Victoria kicked her in the face. She had surgery on November 30 to repair her deviated septum.
Candice returned at New Year's Revolution on January 7, 2007 when she went to the ring with Maria to kayfabe fight off Melina as she tried to interfere in the WWE Women's Championship match between then-champion Mickie James and Victoria. Candice made her in-ring return on January 22 when she and Mickie James defeated Victoria and Melina in a tag team match with Candice scoring the pinfall.
Candice then resumed her feud with Melina, who claimed in her blogs that all Playboy cover models were not capable of fighting her in the ring. Candice took offense to this, which led to a Bra and Panties Match between the two, which she lost. Weeks later, Candice began picking up storyline wins in tag matches that pitted her with Mickie James against Victoria and Melina. She also picked up several wins against the latter two in singles matches, which accumulated into the first ever Pudding Match at One Night Stand, which Candice also won, defeating Melina. After being booked to win matched for several weeks in a row, at Vengeance, Candice defeated Melina to capture her first WWE Women's Championship, becoming the first ever WWE Diva Search contestant to win the Women's Title. Candice retained her title against Melina's kayfabe rematch clause at The Great American Bash with her newest move called the Candywrapper
