WWE Hall of Famer Alundra Blaze’s upcoming autobiography that will feature stories about the “misogynistic world of pro-wrestling”, as per a press release from ECW Press.
According to the release, Blayze’s book, set to release in early 2023, will detail her life before wrestling, before documenting her experiences with WWE and WCW.
In this excerpt from the press release, the behind-the-scenes pro-wrestling environment is described as misogynistic and scandalous:
Professional wrestling was an odd foray for a nursing student but she went all-in, setting high standards in the ring and for herself. The punishing style she learned and adopted in Japan suited someone who needed constant challenges. In WWE, she was known as Alundra Blayze and held the company’s Women’s title . . . until being fired out of the blue by a letter delivered via FedEx. The rival WCW hired her, and Madusa made waves by tossing the WWF’s Women’s title in a trash can on live TV.
It was not an easy ride in the misogynistic world of professional wrestling. The colorful villains on the screen were one thing, but the behind-the-scenes power brokers were even viler, harassing and abusing with impunity, deft in sowing distrust by pitting employees against each other, and lightning quick to cover up any scandalous behavior.
