• Former WWF Women’s Champion Never Made $100,000 Or More In A Year In Wrestling
During a recent interview on ‘The Angle’, former WWF Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze revealed that she never made $100,000 in a year or more in her professional wrestling career.
Keep in mind that back in her day, women’s matches were treated as fillers by pretty much everyone, including the promoters, bookers and the fans as well.
Here’s what the 2015 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“Now I’m really glad to see finally after all these years the women are getting million-dollar contracts for the first time.
In one year, I never made over $100,000 in pro wrestling. And then when I got to WCW, Eric (Bischoff) only gave me $75,000 the first time.”
During her career, Madusa aka Alundra Blayze wrestled for several major promotions, including Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (1986-1989), the World Wrestling Federation (1993-1995) and Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1991-1993 & 1995–2001).
Unfortunately, she is best known for an infamous 1995 incident on WCW Monday NITRO, where she threw the WWF Women’s Championship in a garbage can.
