Trivia / Luna Vachon

  • Creator Backlash: She wasn't keen on a bit she did with Kevin Sullivan where it was claimed she had the Mark of the Beast on her.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Did a segment where the Headbangers and the Insane Clown Posse attacked her and cut off her hair. Unlike when it happened to Sable (who wore extensions), Luna sacrificed her own hair.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Luna in the ring was Ax-Crazy. Outside the ring she was reportedly a very nice person - remaining Amicable Exes after she and Gangrel split in real life, and later becoming a Born-Again Christian. She also made a point in an interview that when Chyna and Sable would frequently ignore the fans - she would spend hours talking and signing autographs with them. She also claims that The Fabulous Moolah once told her she was "too good-hearted" to make it in the wrestling business.
  • Playing Against Type: Was primarily a heel in her career but was able to make a face run work with The Oddities in 1998. She also played face for a brief period in 1999.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot:
    • Winona Littleheart was managing Kevin Sullivan along with Woman, but left to go to Japan, and Luna was chosen as her replacement.
    • When she went to Japan, she wasn't getting on with her family, so she only competed as 'Luna' rather than using the last name too.
    • The mixed tag at WrestleMania X had to be rushed into the finish due to time constraints. Not helping matters was Dink being French and couldn't understand what was happening.
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor:
    • She first left because she had a drinking problem and they fired her while she was in rehab.
    • She claimed that her final release was based off an incident backstage where she was accused of assaulting Brian Christopher, though she denied it was her.
  • Romance on the Set
    • She was married to Dick Slater.
    • With Gangrel, which became Real Life Writes the Plot in kayfabe shortly before she left the WWF.
  • Throw It In: Luna refusing to take her clothes off in the Miss Rumble swimsuit contest was one of these, and she got in trouble for it backstage.
  • Troubled Production: Her mixed tag at WrestleMania XIV. Sable proved difficult to work with while they were training, as she refused to learn how to take bumps. Luna was also warned not to disfigure her in any way, as she had a Playboy shoot coming up. She later described it as the most choreographed match she'd ever been part of. Not helping matters was her and Sable's friendship deteriorating as Sable became a bigger star.
  • What Could Have Been
    • She never intended to get hired by WWF in the early 90s. She had been sending them tapes to get Gangrel hired. The office called one day and asked to speak to her, having seen her doing a splash in one of the tapes, and wanted her straight away. They had actually hired a detective to track her down, as she had mailed the tapes from Puerto Rico but was living in Florida.
    • Right before Sherri Martel was fired from the WWF in 1993, she was stoking a feud with Luna. Too bad it was cut short; it was amazing seeing Sherri and Luna let off the leash at the same time — though the harmonics probably blew out a few television screens.
    • Was supposed to have teamed with Tommy Dreamer and the Pitbulls against Raven, Stevie Richards and Dudley Dudley and Big Dick Dudley at ECW WrestlePalooza 95, August 5, 1995, but she left before that could happen. Instead, Cactus Jack was made her replacement, leading to his heel turn and his whole anti-hardcore campaign.
    • There were plans to make Luna Women's Champion, which happened to be made while Sable was champion, and Sable repeatedly refused to drop the belt to Vachon. Luna also was meant to have another title match against Sable at St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1998 - but it was cancelled after Luna got suspended for fighting backstage.
