Born Geneviève Goulet in Sorel, Quebec, on February 15, 1980, LuFisto’s interest in becoming a professional wrestler sparked when she saw performers like Alaundra Blayze, Bull Nakano, Luna Vachon and Akira Hokuto.

Making her debut in 1997 under the moniker “Lucifer”, Goulet has since then wrestled across Canada, the United States, Mexico, Europe and Japan. Not having a lot of options back then when it comes to female opponents, the “Soreloise” fought tooth and nails to be able to step in squared circle to wrestle against men at a period in time where it was seen as taboo.

She became the first ever female to hold a male championship when she won the Ultimate Wrestling Alliance Cruiserweight title in 1998. She is also the first female in the Province of Quebec to win a male championship (1999), being part of a female team to win a male tag team championship (2000) and to become the first woman in Canada to win the main title of a major promotion (2000).

Having adopted a very popular extreme style and bringing the joshi style of wrestling to North American in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the then known as “ Precious Lucy” was nicknamed the “First Lady of Hardcore” and was able to travel to Mexico in 2002 to capture her first Mexican title after a series of epic battles against Princesa Sugehit.

She would go back to Mexico several times throughout the years, winning the Lucha Pop Femmes Championship and having what is still known as the best inter-gender hardcore match on Mexican soil against Joe Lider in 2005. She would also make it to the finals of Lucha Libre AAA La Reina de Reinas in 2013 only to be defeated by Faby Apache in front of a crowd of 17000 in Monterrey.

In 2003, she was chosen by AtoZ (formally known as ARSION) in Japan to train for two months under the guidance of Mariko Yoshida and Akino. She would return in 2005 for another two week tour fighting legends such as Amazing Kong and Aja Kong.

In April 2003, the Ontario Athletic Commission, which had a clause that women couldn’t wrestle men, banned her from doing so. Goulet filed a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission. On May 10, 2006, she won her fight, as the OAC not only decided to change its ruling, they decided to de-regulate professional wrestling altogether. Women in Canada could now wrestle against the opponents of their choice, men or women.

Still today, LuFisto is the only woman to ever hold a Combat Zone Wrestling championship (CZW Iron-Man) by defeating “Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen (Kevin Owens) for the title. Although she didn’t win the tournament, she is the first female to participate in the CZW Best of the Best Tournament in 2008.

She was voted Best of the Best People's Choice 2008 by the CZW fans and the first and only female to enter the CZW Cage of Death (Vs John Zandig, Nick Gage and Lobo). She is also the only woman to win a King of the Death Matches Tournament (2006) by defeating the Necro Butcher in the finals and she is the Queen of the Deathmatches 2007.

LuFisto is the only woman with Natalya who has been ranked every year in the Pro Illustrated Top Female 50, now Top Female 100, since its beginning in 2008, No. 5 being her highest ranking in 2014. She has been ranked as one of the top independent performer for years by several magazines and websites, including several awards for match of the year, feud or the year, best heel and babyface and so on.

She was also featured in many wrestling related books including the Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History and Rise of Women's Wrestling, John Cosper's Eat, Sleep, Wrestle and Greg Oliver's Slam! Wrestling: Shocking Stories from the Squared Circle.

Having held the title for 526 days, LuFisto is the longest reigning Shine Championship, She is the Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw) Femmes Fatales tournament winner of 2019 when she defeated Leyla Hirsch in Obenhasen, Germany in what has been called “The best female match to ever take place in Europe”. She was also inducted in the CZW Hall of Fame and the NSPW Hall of Fame in 2019.

Not only as LuFisto been successful as a singles was performer but she also as a tag partner to WWE Superstar Asuka (The World Famous Kana with LuKana) and also with IMPACT’s Jordynne Grace as part of Team PAWG (Professional Athletes with Glutes).

Mixing scientific skills with bone shattering violence, she has always demonstrated a willingness to put her body on the line to preserve her status as one of the toughest professional wrestler that ever stepped in the squared circle. Because of her workrate, her wrestling skills, her presence, her understanding of the business, and her passion, Goulet continues to worke for most of the biggest independent federations all over the world.

The First Lady of Hardcore… The Innovator of Intergender... The several times holder of male championships way before intergender was popular…

Hall of Famer... Often the first to do it all…

Cancer survivor, cat lover, coffee addict, heavy metal handbanger and most perseverant person you'll ever meet.
