It was on June 20th 1997 that LuFisto first stepped in a wresting ring. Ever since, she has travelled the world, won countless championships, male and female, fought the government for women’s rights and has broken all the rules when it comes to inter-gender wrestling.
Throughout the years, she has fought the toughest opponents and has been involved in every possible type of matches you can think of. Although she has left her ultra-violent past behind, this former Queen AND King of the Death Matches is still one of the most intense competitors you will witness today.
Nicknamed “The Wounded Owl” after all the scars and knowledge she collected on her quest to revolutionize women’s wrestling, her main goal has always been to prove that women are a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional wrestling.
Proud member of C4 at Shine Wrestling and one-half of Team P.A.W.G. with Jordynne Grace at Beyond Wrestling, she is the One Woman Army, the One Woman Revolution.
Welcome to the Wounded Owl University, where knowledge is acquired through pain.
No Shayna Baszler at AIW… Owner John Thorne Steps Up and Fights LuFisto All Over the Building! April 23rd 2017
LuFisto was schedule to take on Shayna Baszler for the AIW Women’s Championship on April 1st but unfortunately, Shayna was not able to make it to the event “The Next Episode” because of traveling issues. Standing in the ring waiting for the champion, LuFisto is told by the AIW commissioner that she unfortunately won’t be fighting for the title but that he found an opponent for her… None other than owner John Thorne returning to the ring for one night for this Hardcore Fight, Falls Counts Anywhere!
The crowd is going crazy at the announcement of Thorne wrestling as LuFisto leaves the ring and walks towards her newly announced opponent. John kicks her in the gut and both end up into the guardrails before fighting in the concessions stands. LuFisto is thrown into the wall and the chairs before the action goes into the bleachers. Both exchange chops before Thorne is thrown onto the bleachers with a backdrop.
The action goes near the merchandise area where John suplexes LuFisto onto a pile of chairs and even hits her on the head with her own picture book. LuFisto crawls behind her merchandise table and grabs something underneath. She hits Thorne on the head with the Shine Championship!! Thorne kicks out and both head towards the main stage.
John slams LuFisto’s head on the floor of the stage but LuFisto retaliates by giving a Saito Suplex to Thorne on the ramp! LuFisto gets a chair and dropkicks him right in the face while he is sitting. Unfortunately for LuFisto, John gives her a devastating lariat that sends her crashing to the concrete floor and then hits her with a chair in the back. He then throws her back into the ring.
As LuFisto sits in one corner, John runs towards her. LuFisto avoids the hit and sends Thorne into the buckle. She places a chair on top of him and delivers a cannonball. Two counts only! She picks him up but John low blows her… Which has no effect at all. He climbs on the second rope but LuFisto stops him and attempts a Burning Hammer. Thorne blocks the motion and kicks LuFisto in the gut before hitting her with a double axe handle on the back. LuFisto crumbles to the mat and John delivers a second rope stomp. LuFisto kicks out at two!
Thorne places LuFisto on a chair and runs towards her… LuFisto drop toe holds him on the chair and delivers a single-woman Conchairto right on the top of this head for the 1-2-3!
LuFisto takes the microphone and gives props to Thorne tonight out got out of retirement after 5 years telling him he is “One tough mother******” as the crowd is giving them a standing ovation.
