Teaming with Erin Spencer and hiatus (2014–present)Edit
In recent weeks Courtney has taken a keen interest in newcomer Erin Spencer. The two would be friendly on Twitter and Rimes would later congratulate Spencer on her victory over Rebecca Layne. A week later a match was made pitting Erin Spencer and Courtney Rimes up against Amber Torres and Karolina Graf. Not long before this Courtney said she was looking forward to seeing what Erin brought to the table and said she wouldn't be opposed to the two of them forming a tag team. On November 27, 2013 both confirmed the team and they revealed their name as being Southern Country. Erin has gone on to mention that she wouldn't be opposed to challenging for the WEW Tag Team Championship currently held by Divas of Harlem due to the lack of challengers out there.
Rimes and Spencer will make their Adrenaline debut against the team of Ellie Starling and Scarlett-Louise. At Battlefield in an in-ring segment, Rimes turned on Spencer after attacking her from behind and stated that she was holding her back and that she wasn't gonna let her stand in the way of her and the WEW Women's Championship thus turning heel. A planned feud between Erin and Courtney was scheduled to take place however Courtney opted to take some time off wrestling and pursue other ventures, so the feud was scrapped. After a seven month absence, Courtney made a surprising return as a face to WEW at Crossroads coming to the aid of her former partner Erin Spencer during a post match attack from Ashley Tierney and Jasmine.
