The Early Years – Breaking Barriers in Inter-Gender and Hardcore Wrestling Already
The journey begins in 1997 when LuFisto joins the local wrestling school of Sorel-Tracy Quebec. The only girl of the school, she is always the first student to try new moves to prove all the naysayers that she can be as good, even better than the guys. Under the ring name Lucifer, a character inspired by Darth Vader and The Undertaker, LuFisto finally makes her debut on June 19th 1997 in St-Léonard-d'Aston in a losing effort to local wrestler Sophie “The Queen”.
Moving to Montreal after her high school years to study photography, she slightly modifies her name to Lucy Fer and travels all over Quebec, Ontario and Western Canada but also to the Eastern part of the United States. On May 30th 1998 she wins her first championship, a men title, the UWA Cruiserweight Championship by defeating Dancin' Mark Andrews. On US soil, Lucy Fer performs regularly for WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas’ Eastern Wrestling Alliance as "Centerfold" Steve Ramsey's valet before teaming up with Mark "Jaguar" Nugera and manager Joshua O’Shea as the "Partners in Crime".
In 1999-2000, LuFisto wrestles for the Mountie Jacques Rougeau’s International Wrestling. Rougeau will change her name to Precious Lucy without telling her. She will learn her new name in “Le Journal de Montreal” newspaper. By the end of the year, LuFisto joins Inter-Championship Wrestling where, on December 11th, she defeats Serge Proulx for the ICW Provincial Championship, another men title. This is also the match where she first experiences the hardcore style of wrestling as chairs are flying, blood is dripping and with a crowd ready to riot.
In January 2001, LuFisto performs for NWA in Nashville in an acclaimed inter-gender match against Mark Nugera, which is something quite unusual for the old school Nashville crowd. On February 10 of the same year, LuFisto makes history once again as she and partner Sexy Julie beat ICW Tag Team champions Steve Ace and Nico le Prince to become the first ever all-female team to win a male tag team championship.
The First Lady of Hardcore
By the end of 2001, Precious Lucy joins the ranks of the Hardcore Wrestling Federation in Ontario where she mainly feuds with Pitbull and Tyson Dux. Following a tag team match where partner JC Owens turns his back on her and puts her through a table via an over the shoulder reverse piledriver, she is nicknamed the First Lady of Hardcore by a newspaper. The name will stay with her for many years.
She gets her revenge on Owens on July 2nd, 2001 when she beats him by powerbombing the 400+ pounds man into a table to become the All-Star Wrestling Canadian Champion, another men title and this time, the main title of a promotion. She also becomes ICW Tag Team champion once again, this time with a male partner in MSN Mart on March 22nd, 2003.
Precious Lucy intensifies her hardcore battles as participates in many death matches adding barb wire, thumbtacks and light tubes to her arsenal which brings her in Mexico for the first time on June 13th, 2003. A bloody feud between Princessa Sugey and her begins. In the meantime, citing a regulation that prevents women and men from wrestling each other, the Ontario Athletics Commission bans Precious Lucy from wrestling men in Ontario. The upset female wrestler then lodges a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
Precious Lucy Becomes LuFisto
In the summer of 2003, Precious Lucy is chosen by AtoZ in Japan (formally known as Arsion) to stay in the land of the rising sun for 2 months so she can train under the guidance of Mariko Yoshida and Akino. An American wrestler is also chosen to join her in Sara del Rey. As there is already a wrestler in Japan using the name “Lucy”, the Canadian is asked to change her name. Inspired by the Japanese Anime characters, she keeps the “Lu” from Lucy and adds “Fisto” to it as she is inspired by Jedi Kit Fisto from the Star Wars saga. LuFisto’s first match on Japanese soil takes place at Korukuen Hall against GAMI. She will then ally herself with the Japanese veteran and Sara del Rey to form Team Bloody.
Back home, for the next two years, LuFisto will mainly wrestle in Mexico as, on December 15th 2003 in Monterrey, she becomes the first Lucha Libre Feminil Extrema Campeona by defeating Princessa Sugey in a Deathmatch where LuFisto jumps from a balcony and weapons of all sort are used, remaining undefeated for many years. She also has what is still known to this day one of the best hardcore inter-gender matches to ever take place on Mexican soil against Joe Lider at Nueva Generacion Xtrema.
In Quebec, LuFisto grabs the main championship (men title) of a promotion on January 21st 2005 when she defeats Kid Kady for the Slam Angels Championship. On September 4th 2005, LuFisto beats three opponents to win the Evolution of Wrestling Women Super 8 Tournament in Quebec City. Representing NWA Quebec, she appears at the NWA 57th Anniversary Convention in Nashville where she is the only female participating in a tag team match for the NWA Canadian Tag Team Championships. In November, she will have in her second trip to Japan against the impressive Amazing Kong and the legend Aja Kong!
Female wrestler pins Ontario Athletic Commission
On February 26th 2006, the Ontario Human Rights Commission informs LuFisto she has won the battle against the Ontario Athletic Commission. Not only will women be treated as equal in a wrestling ring against male opponents but the OAC would have to drop the regulation but they subsequently dropped the vast majority of the regulations affecting professional wrestling in Ontario, a move which removed a great deal of the bureaucracy stifling independent wrestling in the province.

“Kim, I’ve always felt you were a mini-me, with the same vision, the same need of proving everyone that women are as good as man. Your will to be seen as a wrestler, an equal, is definitely something that touched my heart. “
Both women beat the hell out of each other and it takes Kimber Lee a Chibi Stomp and a Burning Hammer to finally get pinned, Kim being the only person who ever kicked out of LuFisto’s Burning Hammer earlier in the match.
