You may remember her as Madusa (Made in the USA) or Alundra Blayze, but if you paid any attention to female wrestling in the 1980s and 90s, you know who Debra Miceli was.
Debra worked for wrestling promotions like All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling, American Wrestling Association, International World Class Championship Wrestling and of course World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
She was also the first woman ever to be awarded Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Rookie of the Year award.
And a lot of us remember when she showed up on WCW Monday Nitro and threw the WWF Women's Title belt into a trash can.
Well all seems to be forgiven with the WWE now, because they are running a "Where Are They Now?" on Alundra Blayze (as she was called in the WWF).
"It was a cold night in December of 1995 when Alundra Blayze walked out in front of a capacity crowd in Georgia's Richmond County Civic Center with the WWE Women's Championship in her hands. The reaction was tremendous, but that wasn't surprising. After all, the woman born Debrah Miceli was enjoying her third run with the title and had been performing in front of huge audiences with WWE for the past three years."
