Cherish the Opportunity (Season 1): Supremecy
Vixen's first major angle involved her then real-life husband,Kendrick Santana, who debuted in November 2012, Kidd Gucci. The storyline started when Kendrick witnessed Vixen being mistreated by Johnathan Torres backstage, so Gucci attacked Torres and took Vixen as his manager.
