Lisa Evers - World Wrestling Federation

World Wrestling Federation

A trained martial artist, she briefly attempted to become a professional wrestler joining the World Wrestling Federation. She appeared on Tuesday Night Titans in 1985 and demonstrated several self-defense holds. There was speculation that she wrestled as the masked competitor Spider Lady (a role that would later be portrayed by Fabulous Moolah); however, Wendi Richter revealed in an interview that the Spider Lady character was actually portrayed by female wrestler Glenn Dean. Eventually, she wrestled as Lisa Sliwa in 1986.

Famous quotes containing the words federation, world and/or wrestling:

    Women realize that we are living in an ungoverned world. At heart we are all pacifists. We should love to talk it over with the war-makers, but they would not understand. Words are so inadequate, and we realize that the hatred must kill itself; so we give our men gladly, unselfishly, proudly, patriotically, since the world chooses to settle its disputes in the old barbarous way.
    —General Federation Of Women’s Clubs (GFWC)

    Although the stupid, unthinking world may approve what you have done, in your heart you know that, but for your treachery, the boy you loved would be alive today. If anyone is responsible for his death, you killed him, and for that murder you will live and die in the contempt and loathing of your own heart.
    Karl Brown (1897–1990)

    We laugh at him who steps out of his room at the very moment when the sun steps out, and says: “I will the sun to rise”; and at him who cannot stop the wheel, and says: “I will it to roll”; and at him who is taken down in a wrestling match, and says: “I lie here, but I will that I lie here!” And yet, all laughter aside, do we ever do anything other than one of these three things when we use the expression, “I will”?
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
