Donna Christianello

Donna Christianello died last week During the 1970s and 1980s she was an integral part of female wrestling, making it to the WWF, Japan and Europe. After retirement, she worked at Wal Mart. Few customers in these last years came to the store and realized that the friendly old greeter had been one of the terrors of the ring in seasons gone by.

Christianello was never a regular in Phoenix, though she wad brought in by Kurt Von Steiger prior to his renting out the  Phoenix Madison Square Garden. She appeared at the Immaculate Heart Gym when the Pseudo--German ran there.

One particularly torrid match saw her teaming with Lily Thompson to take on the  team of Sandy Parker and Sue Green. The latter team won.

In other parts of the world, Christianello also faced Toni Rose, Marie Laverne, Vicki Williams, Princess Victoria and Judy Martin, among others. She also had an occasional title match with Moolah.
