Former WWE Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze is known for her historic battles with Bull Nakano in the 1990s, but she’s also infamous for one of her actions outside the ring, which WWE.com has listed as one of the 10 “Most Stunning Defections”.
After leaving WCW in 1993 and enjoying two successful years in the WWE, Alundra was dropped from TV in 1995 when she was still Women’s Champion. Alundra returned to TV just three weeks later, but she didn’t show up on Monday Night Raw – she appeared on Nitro.
Live on WCW television, Alundra, now going by her former moniker of Madusa, dropped her WWF Women’s Title in a trash can, a brutally honest demonstration of how she felt about the WWE.
WWE had lost their golden girl, and the women’s division remained MIA until September 1998.
Considering Alundra’s defection caused a whole division to disappear, this moment definitely deserves to be ranked as one of the most stunning defections.
What are your memories of this moment?
