Vanilla Vargas is an up-and-coming luchadora from the island of Puerto Rico who is starting to make major moves in the wrestling industry. Although she was a trained professional wrestler, her home promotion in Puerto Rico at the time, the World Wrestling Council used her as the manager of superstar Angel Fashion. But she got wrestling work in Mexico as Lady Boricua and on the U.S. indy scene. This summer, she made a major move from WWC to Puerto Rico’s newest promotion, World Wrestling League, reuniting with Angel Fashion and being involved in the hottest angle on the island, wrestling in a main event slot opposite L.A.X. of Global Force Wrestling. In addition to that, she has been a regular in Cleveland Knights Championship Wrestling in the United States, where she is their Women’s champion. She will also be making an appearance next month in Guyana. She was able to take time out of her busy schedule to answer a few questions about how she got into wrestling, WWL, CKCW and where the future might be for her.
