My name is Avispa (now Avispa Dorada in CMLL), and I’m the first luchadora who was ever trained at Lucha Libre Volcánica by profesor José Luis Gómez. By extension, this makes me the first luchadora to come out of the Pacific Northwest of the USA.
I trained and performed lucha libre in Washington state from 2011-early 2018. I made my official public debut at Lucha de Sound on March 9, 2013. I have held the Taco Libre Smackdown Championship belt (May 2014- May 2015), the LLV Lightweight Championship belt (April 2017-August 2017), and the LLV Grand Championship title (November 2017-September 2018).
In May 2018 I moved to Mexico City, Mexico to build upon my 6+ years of lucha libre training and pursue my dream of one day performing for CMLL. I currently train under profesores Virus & Último Guerrero. I’m pleased to announce that I will make my official public debut with CMLL on Friday, October 5, 2018 at Arena México.
When I’m not wrestling, I’m the head creator at Awkward Bug Studios. I make lucha libre & pro wrestling gear, comfy undies, and all other manner of stretchy stuff. When I moved to Mexico City, I also began an apprenticeship with mascarero Miguel Ruiz in his lucha libre mask & gear workshop.
On top of all that (since nobody needs free time ever) I’m a gym-junkie and ACSM certified personal trainer.
Given how much of my time is occupied by lucha libre, I first decided back in 2013 to create this website as a blog. It has since grown and expanded into a fully-fledged website! Here you can find my thoughts on the sport and performance of lucha libre, as well as musings on my time training at and performing with Lucha Libre Volcánica.
