History Edit

Claire Lynch was first introduced on the June 28, 2012 episode of Impact Wrestling as a drug addict being helped out by Dixie Carter and AJ Styles, killing rumors from Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) that Styles and Dixie were having an illicit affair. However, Bad Influence started another rumor that Claire was pregnant and that Styles was the father of her unborn baby. On the July 12 episode of Impact Wrestling, Claire confirmed the rumor, and a week later,.Claire turned heel and angrily confronted Styles, showing photographs of their tryst.

On the July 26 episode of Impact Wrestling, the evil Claire appeared in the audience during Styles' match against James Storm; scowling and glaring at Styles to cement herself as a villainess. The angle ended with Claire (through her attorney) confessing that not only was Styles not the father, she wasn't even pregnant. The whole thing was a scheme cooked up by Bad Influence, who met Claire at a party and later worked together to blackmail Styles.
