In Video: Lucha LuFisto
Last weekend, Montreal’s “Super Hardcore Anime” LuFisto was in Mexico, wrestling for AAA in front of the biggest crowd of her life, a reported 13,500-14,000 sellout in the Plaza de Toros La Monumental in Monterrey. Although she didn’t win the vacant Reina de Reinas championship, she was one of the final two competitors in the four way, losing to eventual new champion Faby Apache. Speaking on twitter following the match, LuFi described the experience as “living the dream”. AAA booker Konnan complimented LuFisto on twitter for her performance, tweeting “Thank u Lu, u are a true pro and gave us a great match..U will be back”.
To get to the four way at the ‘Rey de Reyes’ show, however, LuFisto had a qualifying match earlier this month at Arena Neza on the promotion’s AAA FUSION show – taking on Cinthia Moreno, and that’s the match we’re highlighting today. It’s LuFisto’s debut for AAA, and from the sounds of things, it’s highly unlikely it’s going to be the last they see of her.
