Hopefully by now you’ll have heard of Canadian talent Taya Valkyrie – the Storm Wrestling Academy graduate has been a guest on a previous edition of Fight Like A Girl, and now contributes to this very website with her brand new “South of the Border” blog series where she plans to write about her experiences with AAA and Los Perros Del Mal in Mexico. In fact, her first blog dealt was written as she prepared for her first televised match on AAA TV – and said match has now turned up on YouTube!

Like much of lucha libre, you kind of need to turn off any preconceived notions about pro-wrestling. Lucha exists in a unique bubble – as can be seen in the teams for this trios match, as each team features a woman, an exotico (transvestite) and a mini. These “mixed” matches used to be a trademark booking staple of the late AAA founder Antonio Pena. In this match, ruda Taya finds herself teaming with exotico Polvo de Estrellas and AAA World Mini-Estrella Champion Mini Psicosis to take on Lolita and her team featuring exotico legend Pimpinela Escarlata and one of the most astounding talents in the world regardless of height, weight or gender – Mascarita Dorada.
