In a talk with Fightful, former WWE Women’s Champion Madusa revealed how her encounter with Vince McMahon went during her Hall of Fame Induction back in 2015.
I hadn’t spoke to Vince since I left in 95. I went, ‘Oh shit.’ I turned around and we hugged, and hugged, and hugged. The first thing that spewed out of my mouth was, ‘I’m sorry.’ He told me that day…I knew in 2015 when Vince looked at me and said, ‘You are the reason, and you are where we’re going in the future. You are the type of woman that we need. You are the role model of what we’re going for.’
She goes on to say that she’s now living vicariously through the WWE Women’s Roster and that she believes she was ahead of her time.
Speaking of, Madusa still has a bone to pick with WWE, particularly in the way that they portray their own history. “There’s nothing wrong with Trish Stratus or all the other girls. It always starts right there. It always starts at the Attitude Era and forward.” Medusa continues that train of thought as only she can before stating that she understands why WWE did what they did in the mid-90s. “I understood because Vince was going through a lot with IRS and steroid problems. He was trying to downsize. But why not let some guys go? Why the women?”
