Yumiko Hotta is a 26-year veteran who is considered one of the biggest heels in the history of joshi. Rumors are she would not (and apparently still will not) put anybody over unless it was really worth it. She competed primarily in All-Japan Women until it closed, then was a freelancer and also promoted a couple of her own shows. She hasn’t been too active lately but rumors are she is now competing as Passion Hotty, a masked wrestler aligned with Nanae Takahashi’s Passion Red group. As of early 2011 she is the supervisor of the new REINA promotion in addition to making other appearances, most notably at one of the Yuzuki Aikawa Produced events, where she was beaten by Yuzuki for her first career win.
Hotta also participated in MMA in 1999-2000, compiling a record of 4-3.
Hotta is inactive as of spring 2011 due to injury.
