Claire Lynch appeared as a recurring villainess on several episodes of Impact Wrestling in 2012.
Claire was first introduced 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, and Claire angrily confronted Styles and confirmed the rumor on a later edition of Impact. Claire turned heel and continued to plague Styles from that point on a number of occasions over the following weeks.
In one instance, Claire was shown in the audience scowling and glaring at Styles during one of his matches on Impact. The angle ended with Claire (through her attorney) confessing that not only was Styles not the father of her baby, but that she wasn't even pregnant. The whole "pregnancy" debacle had actually been part of an elaborate scheme by Bad Influence to blackmail Styles and ultimately ruin his reputation.
