LuFisto is a groundbreaking, trailblazing Canadian athlete — one with a unique voice, an intricate and compelling history, and fearless honesty.” Holmes added, “Readers need more stories from the most important Canadian pro wrestlers, and from the women who are among the best pro wrestlers of all time. LuFisto fits that description perfectly.”
As a veteran of the independent wrestling scene, LuFisto has a storied and accomplished wrestling career. She has held many titles and appeared for many companies such as, Ring of Honor, CZW, SHIMMER, SHINE, and RISE.
LuFisto said about the book;
“My path in wrestling is so unique.” She added, “Working with Greg made sense on many fronts. I knew him, he knew my career, and he was Canadian. Plus, he has a good knowledge of how the Ontario Athletic Commission (OAC) worked back in the day, which is a major part of my story.”
