Madusa is one of those personalities who were the center of attention at one time, but people don’t hear from her much nowadays. Madusa achieved enormous fame, however, it appears that she is not content with her time in the ring. Madusa recently outlined her reasoning for thinking that her generation is the “lost era” of women’s wrestling.
Although Madusa’s work during the peak of her career in the 1990s has received accolades from many, some feel she was dealt lousy hand because there wasn’t much female talent on the WWE and WCW rosters at the time. Madusa talked about performing in challenging conditions in her ‘Paving the Way’ video podcast on her YouTube channel.
“My era of wrestling was right after the whole [Fabulous] Moolah era. I call my era the lost era, basically is what it was because, you know, there wasn’t much — my roster was two people, you know? Really.”
Bull Nakano and Bertha Faye were just a couple of the notable foes that Madusa engaged in battles with during her time in the WWE. The WWE Women’s Championship remained unclaimed until 1998 after she departed the business in 1995.
When Madusa switched from WWE to WCW in late 1995, she became the center of attention. While she was the WWE Women’s Champion, she appeared on an episode of WCW Nitro and threw the title belt in the trash.
WCW invited Nakano to engage in a new feud with Madusa in 1996. The brief WCW Women’s Championship would later be unveiled by the organization. Madusa was defeated by Akira Hokuto in the tournament’s championship match. In the end, the name was dropped at the beginning of 1998.
Madusa stayed with WCW up until 2001 when Vince McMahon bought the company. Madusa and WWE eventually resolved their issues, and in 2015, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. For further updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
