As a wrestling couple, they collaborated in 2018 on a mixed tag team match against another duo: Terra Calaway and Jeff Cannonball. It was a family-friendly event that was held in Manville, New Jersey. Besides the mixed tag team, she has also gained many achievements in wrestling.

She had broken her leg and needed to raise $5,000 for her surgery. Lawless raised $5,695 out of $5,000, and 129 people donated. Users in the comment section wished her a speedy recovery and said she was strong, talented, charismatic, and beautiful.
Her other half had shared the fundraising campaign through his Twitter account. After a few days, he tweeted that she was out of surgery, and the surgeon had said that everything went well and they had fixed everything.
He then wrote she should be back on her phone again. One of her fans said it was wonderful news and hoped for a swift recovery. It took over a year to recover after the surgery, as she tweeted on the 5th anniversary of her first professional wrestling match.
Eventually, she recovered, and now the wrestler is enjoying her life, spreading smiles through slams and suplexes. All in all, Nightingale has a great lover who has cared for her and is by her side when she needs it.
