Former WCW President Eric Bischoff has given a very strong opinion of former Women’s Champion Madusa, branding her as delusional after the pair had a run-in during a recent Q&A panel.
Madusa was known as Alundra Blayze during her time in WWE, and held their Women’s Championship three times during the mid-90s. Her third reign only came to an end when she left the company to return to World Championship Wrestling.
It was at this point Madusa made her now infamous debut when, on the 18th December 1995 edition of Monday Nitro, she appeared by the commentary desk and threw her WWE title belt in to a trash can.
Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff has recalled the incident due to it being raised during a recent panel which both he and Madusa were on, and how tempers flared between the two.
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 continued by saying that Madusa is happy to make money off the incident, but was trying to aim any heat for it at the former Company President.
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.
Recently Eric Bischoff was rather vocal about another key fixture in WCW, the nWo, and how he feels that himself and the stable inspired Vince McMahon.
