Former WCW President Eric Bischoff has not held back as he disputes former Women’s Champion Madusa’s recollection of one of wrestling’s most infamous moments.
Madusa was known as Alundra Blayze during her time as the central figure of the company’s resurrected women’s division in the mid-nineties. During that time Blayze held the WWF Women’s Championship three times with her third reign only ending when she left the company to return to WCW.
Madusa returned to WCW on the December 18th, 1995 edition of Monday Nitro, and her appearance was another shot across the bows of the Monday Night Wars as she appeared on WCW television with her WWF Women’s Championship and promptly dropped the title in a trash can.
Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff recalled the incident and disputed Madusa’s recent version of events where she claimed it was Bischoff himself who dropped the title in the trash:
“Here’s a funny thing about Madusa. I did a show with Madusa a couple of weeks ago in Milwaukee, and Madusa was absolutely convinced that I was the one that dropped the belt in the trash. We were doing a Q&A in a panel in front of a bunch of people, and Madusa is going, ‘I didn’t do it, you did it.'”
“I said, ‘Madusa, it was your idea, number one, not mine.’ And number two, you’re the one that dropped it in the trash, and she denied it. Like she is in some kind of delusional alternate universe because she didn’t want the heat from being actually the person that dropped it in the trash. So, she tried to fade that heat to me.”
“I didn’t understand it at all, and low and behold, I went back and looked at the clip, and indeed, it was Madusa. It was Madusa who dropped the WWE Women’s Championship in the garbage. Disgusting thing to do! Disgusting! And then, even more disgusting, she tries to blame it on me. What kind of delusional nonsense is that.”
Eric Bischoff concluded by claiming that Madusa isn’t worried about making money off of the notorious incident:
“Oh yeah, she is not opposed at all of making money off of it, but she wants to put the heat on me because she doesn’t remember anything the way it actually happened. She is delusional. Go ahead and sign little miniature trash cans. I don’t care. But damn, at least be honest about this stuff.”
