Twelve Days of Women's Wrestling - Day 7

One of the greatest  women wrestlers of all time was Sue Sexton. During the time I watched LPWA, the largest women's wrestling promotion in it's time, Sue held the belt and dominated the ring as champion. Sue previously held many other titles including the Australian championship. To my mind she is the standard all other champions are measured up to. 

One of the matches that comes to mind most clearly was the LPWA championship match of Sue Sexton vs Allison Royal. Allison was a seasoned pro by this time but was no match for Sue Sexton. Sue dominated the entire match and displayed an intense amount of technical skill applying all manner of leglocks and other grueling holds on Allison eventually coming away with a clear victory. 

Sue Sexton has always been a delight to watch due to her expertise in the ring and had taken on some of the best, most talented wrestlers during her career including Bambi and Cheryl Rusa. In addition to the LPWA championship she added the WCW Women's Champion title to her number of accomplishments. 

She also starred in the movie American Angels as a wrestling coach. Anyone would be quite fortunate to have someone who worked with the legendary Mildred Burke like Sue Sexton as their coach, lol.
