LuFisto is a legend on the Indie wrestling scene. In addition to appearing in SHIMMER, Shine, and Women Superstars Uncensored, LuFisto has wrestled most of the fans’ favorites. She recently spoke with Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s podcast on becoming the first woman inducted.
When asked about the distinction of being the first woman to receive the honor, LuFisto said:
“It was like, um, overwhelming in a good way because I didn’t really think I would end up there because when they announced it [Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame], I thought it was so cool that finally, independent wrestlers would be celebrated for their work. There is so much that has been done on the independent circuit and people don’t know about it. They think — they watch TV, and they always go, ‘This is the first time ever.’ No! It’s not true. It happened on the independents and now with the Hall of Fame, we can talk about those stories, we can reminisce [about] them, we can celebrate the heroes that were there before, you know, everything else that happened on TV so, yeah, I was really proud and honored that I was the first-ever female inducted in that Hall of Fame.”
The remainder of the conversation focused on current events, such as the wXw 16 Carat Gold competition. Women’s Wrestling Talk congratulates LuFisto for becoming the first female admitted into the Indie Hall of Fame 2022! We can’t wait to see what LuFisto creates, and who future women inducted into the Hall of Fame will be. What do you think?
