CMLL tecnica, usually among the top of importance and skill.

Long time independent wrestler who'd occasionally turn up on CMLL cards when they felt like running women's matches from the mid 90s to the early 00s. CMLL didn't run more than a couple women's matches every couple months, so Marcela worked more smaller shows and worked in Japan a bit. Marcela received offers to go to AAA, but turned them down, set on making it in CMLL.

When CMLL decided to try women's wrestling again in 2004, Marcela was brought in with Amapola, Lady Apache, and Dark Angel. Marcela had worked as an extra woman to round out tag and trios matches when 'stars' (foreign and native) were brought into CMLL, and it seemed like she had the same role here. Instead, Lady Apache jumped to AAA, and some combination of CMLL's appreciation for Marcela's skills and the promotion's usual reluctance for a foreigner win a championship caused Marcela to become the somewhat surprising CMLL Women's Champion.

Winning the title gave Marcela a spotlight she had never really received before. Even though the title reign was only 9 months and not filled with high profile defenses, Marcela was able to gain noteworthy for her wrestling skill; she'd always been good, but now more were seeing it. Marcela lost this title to Hiroka, but later won the Mexican National Women's Championship with similar success.

Marcela is among the top 3 of the biggest female tecnica stars in CMLL; Lady Apache & Dark Angel have gotten more focus at times. Supporters of Marcela claim she's the best wrestler in Mexico; fans of a few others may argue the point, but everyone would agree that Marcela is very good.
