Born in Villahermosa, Tabasco, Pasión Kristal began her career as a wrestler in 1994. Her emergence in the ring, along with Pimpinela and Cassandro, was essential to open the way to more characters belonging to the LGBTQ + community in sports companies, mainly in that of Lucha Libre AAA.
Throughout her 27-year career, she was able to shed their hair from renowned athletes such as Chico Che, Officer 911 and AK-47, Zoy Raymunda, Diva Salvaje, and Miss Gaviota. Furthermore, her life was also in danger in the ring during a fight in March 2019.
On that occasion, she was the victim of a movement, known as the stripper, which was poorly executed. Faced with the urgency, she was able to cushion the fall with her arm and prevent her head from hitting the ground directly.
In addition, both she and Jessy Ventura were in the middle of a legal process after being victims of homophobic attacks, both verbally and physically, by a car driver by application.
