It’s been over 20 years since LuFisto first stepped in a wresting ring on June 19th 1997. Ever since, she has travelled the world, won countless championships, male and female, has fought the government for women’s rights and has broken all the rules when it comes to inter-gender wrestling. Fearless, she has faced the toughest opponents and she 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 she collected on her quest to revolutionize women’s wrestling and because of her extended knowledge, her main goal has always been to prove that women are a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional wrestling.
She is the One Woman Army. She is the One Woman Revolution.
Now a proud member of C4 at Shine Wrestling, she takes her opponents to the Wounded Owl University... Where knowledge is acquired through pain and misery is her pleasure.
