" Debbie Killian, who is perhaps the best American woman wrestler to ever work full time in Japan when she competed as Debbie Malenko, called John Laurinaitis asking for a job with WWE. She made her wrestling debut in 1990 and generally competed in Japan until sometime in 1993 when her brief career was cut short at the mere age of 22 by a severe injury. Debbie Malenko was trained at the Malenko school of wrestling in Florida and originally went by the name Debbie Drake. When she went to Japan, they let her use the Malenko name because she was such a great worker. Anyways, Killian is only 35 years old, hasn't competed in at least 13 years, and doesn't exactly fit the "WWE Diva mold", so don't hold your breath on this one" .

WOW! Debbie was one of the best looking wrestlers ever in my opinion. I guess it's that girl next door look beauty with the no nonsense but exciting wrestling and classic attire. Near perfect.

Not only that, but by all accounts, one of the best in ring performers.
