La Diablesa Rosa Is The Most Badass Female Mexican Wrestler You’ll See Today
Mexican wrestling, otherwise known as Lucha Libre, is characterised by cool masks, extravagant characters and their back stories and high-flying special moves. It's been around for more than 150 years, and the women's division is also prominent. Here's the story of La Diablesa Rosa, brought to you by Pot Noodles.
Growing up with two brothers meant La Diablesa Rosa was constantly surrounded by wrestling and brotherly fights. She watched WWE with her siblings and that's where she fell in love with the theatrics and sport of wrestling.
Her name in Spanish means 'Pink Devil' and she accurately displays that character through wearing a pink, horned mask with gold around the eyes. Masks hold a big significance in Mexican wrestling and in some matches the loser is de-masked, which is essentially like if Batman had his true identity revealed - it would be really shit.

La Diablesa Rosa is also the first ever female Lucha Britannia champion. While most sports keep men and women apart, this type of wrestling allows the genders to mix and fight each other. Judging from the video, La Diablesa Rosa doesn't do too badly.
"As far as I'm concerned, I just want to keep putting on amazing matches here and take Lucha Britannia to the best level it can be," she says.
