On this week’s episode of “The Swerve”, Vince Russo interviews a woman who was the blueprint for the modern wrestling diva. A total package of athletic skill with stunning, sexy cover girl looks, and also the first ever American female pro-wrestler to sign a full time contract in Japan. That’s right guys, it’s Madusa!
An international legend and veteran of AWA, NWA, WWF, WCW and Japan, Madusa was also one of the very first to fire off a shot in The Monday Night Wars, when she infamously tossed her WWF Women’s Championship into a trash can during a live broadcast of WCW Nitro.
Vince hasn’t seen his old friend in over fifteen years, and their conversation covers every major step of her career. Doing what Vince does best for his audience, Madusa reveals all the insider information and backstage insights on everything from her WWF run as Alundra Blayze to her final days in WCW and her transition into the world of Monster Trucks.
