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 2011through early 2018. I made my official public debut at Lucha de Sound 2 on March 9, 2013. In May 2018 I moved to Mexico City, Mexico to build upon my 6+ years of lucha libre training and pursue my dream of performing for CMLL. I currently train under profesores Virus & Último Guerrero. I made 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.
Considering 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.
