This Thursday, the Dark Side of the Ring series will air its episode on Luna Vachon.
Coming from a wrestling family, Vachon made her debut in wrestling in the mid 1980’s and wrestled for over 20-years until her retirement in 2007. She wrestled for many promotions such as ECW, WCW, various indie promotions, and WWF. Vachon made a huge impact on the wrestling scene during her time in the industry. She was one of a kind and a pioneer that doesn’t always get the credit she deserves.
Vachon sadly passed away at the age of 48 in the year 2010 as a result of a drug overdose. The episode is titled Many Faces of Luna Vachon and has the following description:
A striking villain in the ring, Luna Vachon was a groundbreaking physical performer who battled mental illness and addiction while seeking to champion women’s wrestling.
