Martel appeared in World Championship Wrestling in 1994 under the name Sensuous Sherri. She appeared at Slamboree scouting potential new clients in May 1994. She announced that she would manage who she felt was WCW's top star. Behind the scenes, Kevin Sullivan wanted her to be the manager of Ron Simmons. But, this was during the time of the Nicole Brown and O.J. Simpson investigation, so they thought that might be pushing it a little.
At Clash of the Champions XXVII, just as the match between Ric Flair and Sting got underway, Martel approached the ring wearing face paint identical to Sting's. Indeed, she was cheering for him to defeat Flair. Late in the match, Sting attempted to dive over the ropes onto Flair, but The Nature Boy yanked Martel into his path. Sting spent the rest of the match totally distracted and concerned for her, giving Flair the chance he needed to grab Sting's tights for an illegal pinfall and become the WCW Champion. Martel then entered the ring to embrace Flair. The new couple attacked Sting until Hulk Hogan ran them off. She helped Flair in feuds against both Sting and Hulk Hogan.
In 2005, she made a return to WWE SmackDown! as part of the Shawn Michaels/Kurt Angle feud leading up to WrestleMania 21. There she sang a parody of Michaels' theme song with Angle but was eventually put in the Ankle Lock.
She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Ted Dibiase on April 1, 2006. She and the rest of the inductees made an appearance at Wrestlemania 22 when they were each introduced to the crowd. She was accompanied by Dibiase during her appearance.
Later in April 2006, Martel signed a deal with Jakks Pacific to have a WWE Classic Superstars action figure made. This would be the first action figure of Sherri Martel ever produced.
On September 4, 2006, she worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, taping a backstage vignette trying to offer her managerial services to "free agent" Bobby Roode that aired on the September 21 TNA iMPACT!. In a segment only for the live crowd, she then came out and waved to the fans.
