Wrestler Spotlight: Taya Valkyrie




I thought that I should take the time out to put the spotlight on someone who I see as a shining star in the exciting, high-octane promotion of Lucha Underground. This shining star is the very talented Taya Valkyrie.

Taya started her pro wrestling career by training at the popular Lance Storm school Storm Wrestling Academy. She was also apart of Storm’s Canadian reality series “World of Hurt”.

Taya wrestled in Canada before moving to Mexico. She was only supposed stay in Mexico for a short stint but was convinced to stay longer by the late Perro Aguayo Jr. He offered her a spot in the Los Perros del Mal stable. Taya worked for other promotions like International Wrestling League, Universal Wrestling Entertainment and LEGEND Promociones.

She is mostly known for her work in AAA wrestling. Taya competed in mixed tag matches and with women who are equally as talented. Women like Sexy Star, Lufisto, and Ivelisse. Taya won her first championship in August 17th, at Triplemania XXII defeating Faby Apache.

On the February 24th episode of Lucha Underground, Taya Valkyrie made her debut as the valet of Johnny Mundo. She had her first match in the promotion against Cage. A behemoth of a guy and she held her own. I was truly impressed with Taya and her ability to hold her own in the match. I was so excited to see her compete in Aztec Warfare II. Her chemistry with the other wrestlers was quiet entertaining. The tactics used to try to eliminate Cage was hilarious. And once again Taya was thrown to the slaughter, to take the savage retaliation of Cage.

Her vibrant personality and high-flying style is quite reminiscent of Johnny Mundo – it’s no surprise that they are working together. I am looking forward to what else Taya will do in this promotion that has allowed every wrestler, no matter what their gender is, to really step out of the boundaries that have been established by other organizations and tear the roof off of the place.

I think that Taya Valkyrie will take this opportunity and run with it. I’m declaring it now, Taya is going to be a huge star in Lucha Underground. She will also make a huge impact in the wrestling world in the next few years. Keep doing what you’re doing Taya, you’re killing it!

Here are few video clips that I think you guys will enjoy of Taya.
