This week I'm honored to be joined by a true PAVER in WWE Hall of Fame wrestler & Monster Jam star, Madusa! We start this bad boy out with a cocktail I dubbed Madusa on the Rocks, but Madusa comes up with even a better name. Then we sit down and get into Madusa's near 20-year tenure with Monster Jam. We find out just how she was able to carve out a niche for herself in the monster truck world, the struggles of having absolutely ZERO training before starting, and the fun pranks that she pulled on the guys before their races.
I pull out a nice surprise for Madusa myself, as we introduce a new drinking game to the mix - Cocktail Checkers. Things get heated as Madusa's true competitive nature shines through during the game. We continue the chat by getting into the beginnings of Madusa's wrestling career; from the first training session, to her debut in Japan, sketchy cage fighting in Thailand, and her eventual rise to the WWF as Alundra Blayze.
Madusa reflects back on the struggles that women faced in the sports entertainment industry, and how she was able to help pave the way for where women's wrestling is today. She lets the TRUTH out about her infamous phone call with friend-of-the-show Eric Bischoff (sorry, Eric!) Truth be told, there's so much to unpack in this chat that this little write up won't even do it justice. Just know - I think I made a new best friend, and hope you enjoy the UNCUT chat with Madusa!
