WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Lita have already signed up to call WWE’s inaugural Mae Young Classic, but it looks like they’ll be joined by a third Hall of Famer, and one of the greatest Women’s Champions ever: Madusa.
Ross dropped the announcement on the latest edition of his podcast, and it’s a great decision. You can’t get a much better female voice in North American wrestling than the woman who helped bring Joshi to the States in the 1990s, fired the first real shot of the Monday Night Wars and was a member of pro wrestling’s all-time greatest faction, the Dangerous Alliance.
On Tuesday, Madusa shared the following on Instagram:
Back in June, WWE shared a video of Madusa — aka Alundra Blayze — guest coaching at the WWE Performance Center, and talking at length about why the summer’s 32-woman tournament is historic and overdue.
Let’s just hope that if it turns out the women are competing for a brand new championship belt as rumored, they keep it as far away from garbage cans as possible.
Seriously though, this is a hell of an addition to the Mae Young Classic, and we hope the winner has to face Alundra Blayze as a secret video game-style final boss.
