Cyndi Lauper Comments On Potential WWE Return

Captain Lou Albano Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper hasn’t ruled out a return to the world of wrestling.

Lauper was a trailblazer when it comes to celebrity involvement in WWE. The Grammy-winning singer included stars like Captain Lou Albano, Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Shiek in her music videos.

As a key figure in the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection of the 1980s, she was also heavily involved with the first WrestleMania, appearing with Wendi Richter in events leading up to the show. At the event, she accompanied Richter to the ring for her Women’s Championship match against Leilani Kai.

WWE’s Kayla Braxton recently caught up with the star during an episode of The Bump when she was attending the premiere of her documentary, ‘Let The Canary Sing’, at the Tribeca Film Festival.

When she was asked if she would appear in the promotion again, Lauper left the door open, saying “you never know.”

“I don’t know, you know? I always had the look. You never know.”

During the interview, the ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ singer also recalled advocating for women’s wrestling and arguing with Albano about the subject.

“You should know that back in the day, we advocated for women, also in wrestling. It was an argument I had with the great Captain Lou Albano, and we kind of got in a fight.”

Cyndi Lauper was portrayed by Becky Lynch in Young Rock

Lauper’s time in wrestling was recently brought to life in the Young Rock TV show which followed the younger years of Dwayne Johnson.

In the show, she was portrayed by Becky Lynch. When Lynch was announced for the role, she praised Lauper for being groundbreaking and influential.

“Playing someone as groundbreaking and influential, not only in the music industry but as a feminist and someone who was instrumental in bringing wrestling into the mainstream , was both challenging and immensely fun and I can’t wait for you all to see it!”
