Professional Wrestler. The daughter of Paul "Butcher" Vachon, she wanted to follow the family tradition of being a pro-wrestler despite their initial disapproval. She began her training at age 16 under the tutelage of her Aunt Vivian Vachon, her father Paul, and the Fabulous Moolah. Luna made her debut in 1985 when she joined Kevin Sullivan's "Army of Darkness". To fit her character of a "devil worshipper" she shaved one side of her head and wore face paint. From 1992 to 1994 Luna was a member of the WWF and made her first appearance at Wrestlmania IX; after a hiatus from the ring she then returned to challenge the then Women's Champion Sable for the title. She was released from the WWF after a real backstage fight with Sable. In December of 2007 Luna retired from professional wrestling and went on to work as a tow truck driver, a job she reportedly loved. Shortly before her death she lost all of her wrestling memorabilia in a fire that destroyed her home. She was living with her mother at the time of her passing. During her career Luna won six Women's titles in different companies.
