Career

Ladies Professional Wrestling Association

Malia Hosaka regularly wrestled for the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association. On February 13, 1992, she teamed with Bambi to challenge the LPWA Tag Team Champions The Glamour Girls on the LPWA Super Ladies Showdown pay-per-view.[2]

Extreme Championship Wrestling

She then substituted for Madusa at Extreme Championship Wrestling's November to Remember event on November 13, 1993, and wrestled against Sherri Martel.[1]

World Championship Wrestling

Hosaka joined World Championship Wrestling in 1996 and competed in their newly formed women's division. She wrestled in the tournament to crown the first WCW Women's Champion, but was eliminated by Zero. During her tenure in WCW, she was managed by Sonny Onoo and frequently wrestled on WCW Monday Nitro and WCW Saturday Night against Madusa, Leilani Kai and WCW Women's Champion Akira Hokuto.[3][4] In 1997, she competed in the WCW Women's Cruiserweight Championship tournament and was defeated in the finals by Toshie Uematsu.

In 1998, Hosaka became a two-time New Dimension Wrestling Women's Champion.[5][6] She defeated Debbie Combs for the belt on August 7, but lost it to Starla Saxton two weeks later.[6] The next night, Hosaka defeated Saxton to once again become champion.[6] She held the belt for approximately a month and a half until she lost it to The Foxy Lady on November 9, 1998.[6] Hosaka wrestled against Saxton in matches taped for WCW Pro on May 16, 1998[7] and WCW WorldWide on September 19, 1998 and December 26, 1998.[8]

World Wrestling Federation

In 1999 she appeared on Raw Is War as a fan answering Ivory's challenge for her WWF Women's Championship but was instead attacked by Nicole Bass and Ivory until WWF head of security Jim Dotson stopped them. Since she was instantly recognized from her WCW appearances, the proposed “Rocky Balboa” idea for Malia's character fell to the way-side. WWF kept her under contract for a year before releasing her due to an internal lack of character idea development.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling

On June 18, 2003, Hosaka competed in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and was defeated by Trinity.[1]

Independent circuit

On August 28, 1998, Hosaka faced Starla Saxton, who would later be known as Molly Holly in WWE, at a match in a Florida bar. The match was for the New Dimension Wrestling Women's Title which Hosaka lost to Saxton the day before.[9]

In 1999, Hosaka took on longtime rival Brandi Alexander in a non-title match in Tulelake, California, for Rob Russen's IWA Florida promotion. She was billed as IWA Women's World Champion, but did not have the belt with her. Her match now appears on YouTube and MySpaceTV. In 2005, Hosaka appeared at "Wrestle Reunion" in an 8-woman tag team match teaming with Wendi Richter, Bambi, and Jenny Taylor against Sherri Martel, Peggy Lee Leather, Krissy Vaine, and Amber O'Neal.[10]

August 7, 2007 marked Malia's 20th year in wrestling. Malia is part of SHIMMER (where she teams with Lexie Fyfe as The Experience), as well as being the "Queen of PMA" for Team PMA along with Syren and Evil Zebra. On Volume 4 Hosaka and Fyfe defeated Lee and Cindy Rogers in a tag team match. On Volume 5 they became an official team under the name The Experience. Since then they had a winning streak which was broken by Cheerleader Melissa and MsChif on Volume 12. They then started another winning streak which was broken this time by Ashley and Nevaeh in the final of a six-team Gauntlet Match on Volume 21.

After missing Volume 23 The Experience came back as part of the Volume 24 as they defeated the team of Rayna Von Tosh and Tenille. Once again the Experience missed a Volume but they came back as part of the Volume 26 losing to the team of Nikki Roxx and Ariel.

Lexie Fyfe, due to some illness, was not scheduled for the SHIMMER 4th ANNIVERSARY Tapings but Malia was and, in fact, she defeated Tenille but lost to Ariel in Singles Action.
