Details about the upcoming autobiography of Madusa have been revealed.
Debrah Miceli, best known to wrestling fans as Alundra Blayze in WWE and Madusa in WCW, is set to release an autobiography detailing her career that has spanned over four decades.
The WWE Hall of Famer first made inroads into the industry in the mid-eighties and no doubt has many entertaining stories to tell. Madusa famously appeared on WCW Nitro in 1995 where she tossed the WWE (then WWF) Women’s Championship into a trash can. Outside of wrestling, the multi-time champion embarked on a successful monster truck career.
Canadian publishing company ECW Press has released the following description:
“With a career in the squared circle as storied as the one Madusa Miceli has had, one would think she would have more than enough material to write her own book. Evidently the women’s wrestling and WWE Hall of Famer agrees with that sentiment.
Through four decades of entertaining, in the wrestling ring and on the monster truck circuit, Debrah “Madusa” Miceli never could sit still. But her desire to learn, grow, and inspire legions of followers masked deep secrets … Her upbringing was a lie from the start, and the dark truths of her childhood, revealed here for the first time, are the earliest examples of Debrah’s determination to persevere.
Professional wrestling may have been an odd choice for a nursing student, but Madusa went all-in, toughening up in Japan before conquering WWE as Alundra Blayze. She held the WWE Women’s belt … until being fired. In the rival WCW, Madusa infamously tossed the WWE belt in the garbage on live TV.
Then, in 1999, Madusa changed lanes and revolutionized the monster truck world. At meet-and-greets, girls in pink “Queen of Carnage” t-shirts would wait alongside ogling fanboys. By 2004, she was the world champion in a sport dominated by men.
Only one thing has eluded her: motherhood.
This is the spellbinding story of how one woman survived child abuse, financial disaster, death-defying injuries, heartbreak, and chaos to emerge triumphant.”
“The Woman Who Would Be King: The MADUSA Story”, written by Debrah Miceli and Greg Oliver of Slam Wrestling, will be released on April 18, 2023.
Paul Heyman has written a foreword for the book with the two having worked together during their time in WCW as part of the Dangerous Alliance.
