WWE Hall of Famer Madusa (the former Alundra Blayze) was a recent guest of The Angle Podcast, and she discussed what her salary was like during her time with both WCW and WWE.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
Madusa on her pay in WCW and WWE: “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.”
What she was making by the time she left wrestling: “By the time I left, I finally got six digits — $150,000. Then I knew it was time to go when they brought in girls that were bikini models and they were making $250,000. Nothing against the girls. It’s not angry at the individual, it’s angry at the situation.”
