– There’s a lot of speculation on Lana and Renee Young being added to the WWE Total Divas cast after they were seen filming with E! cameras in Dallas this week. It could just be them filming appearances for the show but with the recent ratings issues, producers could be looking at ways to bring more interest to the show.
– Paul Heyman’s latest “Heyman Hustle” blog for Yahoo looks at his former “Dangerous Alliance” partner, WWE Hall of Famer Madusa. He praised her, then wrote the following on Alundra Blayze and UFC’s Ronda Rousey:
Even WWE’s presentation of Madusa as the fiercely competitive, fit but feminine athlete ready to take out an entire division was ahead of its time, as the public in the mid-1990s didn’t know how to react to such a character. Of course, today, one of the biggest box office attractions in sports is UFC’s Ronda Rousey. You know, a fiercely competitive, fit but feminine athlete ready to take out an entire division. Sound familiar?
Madusa’s foray into WCW has been covered ad nauseum. She provided one of the most memorable moments of the Monday Night War by trashing the WWE Women’s Title, and eventually migrated to the sports entertainment universe of Monster Trucks. Her induction into the WWE Hall of Fame last year was well-earned and long-overdue. Her emotional shout out to her husband, a veteran Master Sergeant in the U.S. Military, showed the world her softer side. And it’s a soft side she has been willing to reveal to only a select few over the years, as that rough and tough exterior has always been Madusa’s calling card. But it’s that rarely-seen soft side that has defined her to her friends, even though we all know Madusa at her softest can still be harder than most people at their hardest.
Wonder if that includes Ronda Rousey?
