Born Geneviève Goulet in Sorel, Quebec, on February 15, 1980, LuFisto’s interest in becoming a professional wrestler sparks when she discovers performers like Alaundra Blayze, Bull Nakano, Luna Vachon and Akira Hokuto .

Making her debut in 1997 under the moniker “Lucifer”, Goulet has since wrestled across Canada, United States, Mexico, Europe and Japan. Not having a lot of options back then when it comes to female opponents, the “Soreloise” fought tooth and nails to step in squared circle against men at a period in time where it was seen as taboo.

She becomes the first female to hold a male championship when she wins the Ultimate Wrestling Alliance Cruiserweight title in 1998. She is the first female in the Province of Quebec to win a male championship (1999) and to be part of an all-female team winning a male tag team championship (2000). The then known as “Precious Lucy” is also the first woman in Canada to win the main title of a major promotion (2000).

Not afraid to be involved in extreme wrestling matches and by already showcasing the Joshi style of wrestling in North American in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Precious Lucy is nicknamed the “First Lady of Hardcore”. She travels to Mexico for the first time in 2002 where she captures the Lucha Libre Feminil Extremo Campeonato after a series of epic battles against Princesa Sugehit.

She will go back to Mexico several times throughout the years, winning the Lucha Pop Femmes Championship and being part of what is still known as the best inter-gender hardcore match on Mexican soil against Joe Lider in 2005. She will also make it to the finals of Lucha Libre AAA La Reina de Reinas in 2013 only to be defeated by Faby Apache in front of a crowd of 17000+ in Monterrey.

In 2003, she is chosen by AtoZ (formally known as ARSION) in Japan to train for two months under the guidance of Mariko Yoshida and Akino. It’s at this moment that she changes her name to “LuFisto”. She will go back to the land of the rising sun in 2005 for another two week tour fighting legends such as Amazing Kong and Aja Kong.

In April 2003, the Ontario Athletic Commission, following a complaint, applies a clause that women can’t wrestle men and therefore bans LuFisto from performing in the Province. Goulet files a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission. On May 10, 2006, she wins the fight! Not only the OAC has to reverse its ruling but decides to de-regulate professional wrestling altogether. Women in Canada can since wrestle against opponents of their choice, men or women.

Still today, LuFisto is the only woman to ever hold a Combat Zone Wrestling championship (CZW Iron-Man) by defeating “Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen (Kevin Owens). Although she didn’t win the tournament, she is the first female to participate to CZW’s Best of the Best Tournament in 2008. She will however be chosen as the ”Best of the Best People's Choice 2008” by the fans in attendance that night.

She still is the only woman who has entered the CZW Cage of Death (Vs John Zandig, Nick Gage and Lobo). Also the only woman to be crowned “King of the Death Matches” in 2006, she pins hardcore legend Necro Butcher in the Finals. LuFisto is also the “Queen of the Death Matches 2007“.

With Natalya (WWE), LuFisto is the only woman who has been ranked every year in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Top Female 50 (now Top Female 100), since its beginning in 2008, number 5 being her highest ranking in 2014. Many magazines and websites rank her as one of the best independent stars every year as well as nominating her for several awards such as match of the year, feud of the year, best heel and babyface and so on.

LuFisto is also featured in many wrestling related books such as ”Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History and Rise of Women's Wrestling”, ”Eat, Sleep, Wrestle” from John Cosper and ”Slam! Wrestling: Shocking Stories from the Squared Circle” by Greg Oliver.

By holding the championship for 529 days, LuFisto is the longest reigning Shine Champions. She makes it to the finals of the Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw) Femmes Fatales tournament in 2018 by defeating Tony Storm, Killer Kelly but losing to Meiko Satomura.

The next year, she wins the 2019 wXw Femmes Fatales tournament in Obenhasen, Germany by winning over Vicious Vivien, Lana Austin and then Leyla Hirsch in the finales in what many have described as “The best female match to ever take place on European soil”. LuFisto is inducted in the CZW Hall of Fame and the NSPW Hall of Fame in 2019.

Not only has LuFisto been successful as a singles performer but also as a tag partner (LuKana) to WWE Superstar Asuka (The World Famous Kana) and IMPACT Wrestling’s Jordynne Grace as part of Team PAWG (Professional Athletes with Glutes). Mixing scientific skills with bone shattering violence, she has always demonstrated a willingness to put her body on the line to preserve her status as one of the toughest professional wrestler that ever stepped in the squared circle. Because of her work rate, wrestling skills, presence, understanding of the sport and her passion, Goulet continues to work for most of the biggest independent promotions in the world.

In an interview with national media Radio-Canada, wrestling historian Patric Laprade proclaimed: “When it comes to quality of matches, longevity, international career, LuFisto has surpassed 1970s Quebec sensation Vivian Vachon. No other woman from Quebec has even come close since. She is the greatest female wrestler of all time in Quebec.”

The First Lady of Hardcore… The Innovator of Inter-gender... The several times holder of male championships way before inter-gender was popular…

Hall of Famer... Often the first to do it all…

Cancer survivor, cat lover, coffee addict, heavy metal headbanger and most persistent person you'll ever meet.
