AKA Lita (one of my favorite female wrestlers along with Chyna and Trish Stratus. After the top three, there is no other female wrestler who comes close. Perhaps, Stephanie McMahon is in my top five or top 10 list).

5. Michelle Rodriguez

She was born Mayte Michelle Rodriguez on July 12, 1978, in Bexar County, Texas, to Carmen Milady Pared Espinal, from the Dominican Republic, and Rafael Rodríguez Santiago, who served in the U.S....

She is one of the toughest angels I have ever seen.
