Best known these days as one of Alice Cooper's guitarists, Los Angeles native Nita Strauss was ranked at number one on Guitar World's list of "10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know." Prior to landing the gig with Cooper -- in which she had replaced Orianthi -- Strauss had been a member of Femme Fatale, a featured player with Jermaine Jackson and a part of the all-female tribute to Iron Maiden known as The Iron Maidens.

Strauss has been very visible within the wrestling world in recent months. She performed at the most recent Wrestlemania, playing as part of Shinsuke Nakamura's entrance. She has also appeared at events for California-based indie PCW, including last January's event at ILWU Memorial Hall in Wilmington, CA.

Notably, Strauss has also been vocal about doing DDP YOGA. Earlier this year, she posted about this on her Facebook account, noting: "I managed to get in a quick 45 minutes of DDP Yoga done in my hotel room during our two-hour break from rehearsal today!!" Going along with the DDPY philosophy, Strauss added: "Whether it’s music, fitness, or anything else- if something is important to you, you have to MAKE the time for it in your day. Now I just have to towel my sweaty hair off before heading back down to the stage to run the set."
