Luchadora - Lita

Luchadora - Lita
Well she was a luchadora.
I mean she DID learn to wrestle in Mexico.....

Amy Christine Dumas (born April 14, 1975) is an American former professional wrestler better known by the ring name Lita, and lead singer of punk rock band The Luchagors.

Amy Dumas attended many different schools throughout her childhood and adolescent years, and managed to finish high school six months prior to graduation. She also studied Spanish for three years. She attended college at Georgia State University, where she majored in education.

Amy had always been an excellent swimmer and, as an early adult, she practiced judo competitively. Dumas played bass guitar in a band called 3 Card Trick and was a roadie for another band, Fifteen (sometimes mistakenly believed to be the band 7 Seconds because they were Amy's favorite band), for five years before becoming a wrestler. Dumas first became interested in wrestling after watching Mexican luchador Rey Mysterio, Jr. wrestle on an episode of World Championship Wrestling's WCW Monday Nitro alongside her then-boyfriend, who was an avid wrestling fan.

She traveled to Mexico to learn how to wrestle and learn more about the sport and also encounter a huge assortment of wrestlers such as Yoshihiro Tajiri, Val Venis, Essa Rios, Super Crazy, and Chris Jericho. As stated in her autobiography, Dumas financed her training by dancing in a club under the pseudonym Misty. During her stay in Mexico, Dumas trained under numerous wrestlers, including Kevin Quinn, Miguel Perez,Los Boricuas and Ricky Santana. Following the completion of her training, Dumas made several appearances with the Empresa Mexicana de la Lucha Libre, ( now CMLL) and spent ten days working for a promotion in Peru.
