Chasing Destiny tells the story of Lyric Angel de la Cruz. She is the only daughter of five-time world heavyweight champion and three-time tag team champion Manuel de la Cruz and the oldest granddaughter of Julio de la Cruz, a legend in the wrestling world. For as long as Lyric can remember, her life has been surrounded by wrestling, and she wants to be involved with the business. But unlike her family that came before her. Lyric wants to create her own way in the business, however, when she tells Manuel her career path, he is furious that she would want to do something that he sees as trivial—beneath her and the de la Cruz name. She dedicates her life in the wrestling world to prove her father wrong, that she doesn’t need to rely on in-ring skills or even the de la Cruz name to become successful in the world she grew up loving.
