• WWF Legend Almost Didn’t Appear At The WWE Evolution 2018 PPV
Alundra Blayze wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from December 1993 until November 1995 and won the WWF Women’s Championship 3 times.
She returned to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where she wrestled her last official match at the WCW Fall Brawl 2000 PPV, before she retired from professional wrestling.
In 2015, Alundra was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and on October 28th 2018, she came out of retirement to enter a 20-woman Battle Royal at the first and only all-women’s WWE pay-per-view, Evolution.
The former Madusa appeared on an episode of Ruthless Aggression Era Veteran René Duprée’s ‘Café De René’ podcast and revealed that she was almost held back from appearing on camera at the Evolution PPV back then.
Here’s what she said about her WWE Evolution experience:
“It’s amazing and it was so cool to be a part of that. So that was actually my first comeback in the ring since I retired, right? Basically, and there’s a great story to that in my book. Oh sh*t! Wait until you guys read it.
It’s a good one. I wasn’t gonna go… It’s not that I wasn’t gonna go. I was already there. But, I almost got held back and there’s a story in the book about that.”
