Dee Booher

Born in California in 1938, much bigger than the average woman and even bigger than many men, Dee Booher discovered the sport of wrestling while she was a student at El Camino College and rapidly became their star. Winning 75% of her matches in the 200-pound class -- all against male wrestlers -- Booher helped to propel the team to the state championship and the school was too happy about winning to care how they did it. Turning her collegiate success into a career in professional wrestling, Booher earned great respect coast-to-coast as “Queen Kong” and “Matilda the Hun.” How in-your-face is that?!
