La Catrina - Not Your Usual Luchadora

Every now and then I run across a luchadora that breaks all the stereotypes you usually see associated with female wrestlers.
La Catrina is one of those ladies.

This luchadora was born in 1954 (yes she's 58) and is a grandmother of seven.
She was trained by La Vida and Super Pinocho and made her lucha libre debut in 1983.
So yes... she is 58 and has been wrestling for 29 years.
La Catrina was a victim of domestic violence (she had an ex-husband who used to hit her) so she took up wrestling to learn to defend herself.
She is now happily married to a luchador.

And no one has made a movie about this woman yet?
