Debbie Newkirk, better known by her ring name Tracy Richards, was an American women's wrestler. Richards toured extensively throughout the world during her career, including places like Japan, Africa, Australia, and North America. Richards was best known for her championship tag team, The Arm & Hammer Connection, with her trainer and longtime friend, Beverly Shade. Richards is believed to be the first women's wrestler to use the powerslam, a move used due to her background as an amateur powerlifter. Richards was married to independent and former WWF preliminary wrestler, Phil Newkirk, and the couple has three children. Richards died on February 25, 2007, in her home, after a brief battle with cancer.
