Kris Wolf - Japanese Female Wrestling

This young lady is a bit different for this blog.
Although she is Joshi through and through...she was born in the US.
Kristina Hernandez was born on August 12, 1984 in Chicago, Illinois.
She is a photographer, voiceover talent and pro wrestler in Japan.
Kris started out as a freelance photographer in San Francisco, California.
After living a year and a half in Japan, she saw a Stardom match on YouTube and was hooked.
She was trained by Fuka Kakimoto, and in 2014, she debuted as Kris Wolf.
This makes her the first foreigner to start out with a Japanese wrestling promotion and enter women's professional wrestling in Japan.

Asuka aka Kana in WWE NXT

The old rule of thumb here on this blog used to be "When in Kana."
But now Kana is Asuka in the WWE and is the NXT Women's Champion.
And true to form she is still pretty much Kana.
So much so that Dave Meltzer (the Wrestling Observer Newsletter) said that she "may be the best worker in WWE, man or woman".
Yep...that's Kana.
