Diane Syms was born on February 8, 1962 in Glens Falls, New York.
But she is better known to Old School wrestling fans as Misty Blue Simmes, or just Misty Blue.
Misty started out boxing, but went on to Killer Kowalski's famous wrestling school where she trained for 18 months.
She worked for the American Wrestling Association (AWA), the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association (LPWA) where she tag teamed with Heidi Lee Morgan.
Misty also did some work with World Championship Wrestling (WCW).
How tough was Misty?
She once competed in an eight person mixed tag team match teaming with Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff, and Barry Windham against Jim Cornette, The Midnight Express, and Dick Murdoch.
You get in the ring with Rhodes, Koloff and Murdoch...that's a whole 'nother level.
