The Wrestling Women of Lucha Libre - Female Mexican Wrestlers
Mexican Women Wrestling from CMLL and Triple AAA Lucha Libre.
Mexican professional wrestling (Lucha Libre) is a sports tradition in Mexico that has spilled over into America's culture.
And in Lucha Libre Mexicana, the luchadoras (female wrestlers) are just as respected as the male wrestlers are, in contrast to the way they are treated her in the US.
On this female wrestling list, there are some of the most popular female wrestlers in Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and some of the more popular Indy Mexican wrestling promotions.
And remember, this is more than just girls wrestling in the ring, this is a Mexican tradition.
Xóchitl Leyva Sánchez was born on February 20th,1973 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.
She is better known in Lucha Libre as the Luchadora Tiffany.
As with a lot of Lucha Libre stars, Tiffany comes from a wrestling family. Her father Jesse Rojas "El Vasco", a famous Luchadore, her mother was the original La Diabolica and her brother Jessy is also a Luchadore.
Tiffany was trained by her father and made her professional wrestling debut on July 18, 1993 at the Arena Solidaridad in her hometown, Monterrey.
