Rachael was trained by Lance Storm (one of the very best!) at the Storm Wrestling Academy in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She began training in September 2014 and had her first match on November 21st, 2015.

Rachael Ellering is definitely a women’s wrestler on the rise and one I’ll be looking out for in the future. She already has a lot of poise in the ring for only a year and a half of experience. The sky is the limit for this rising star!
