Brock Lesnar is the mayor of Suplex City, but that doesn’t make him the king of maneuvers. In a Q&A with Monthley Puroresu, former WCW Women’s Champion Madusa (Alundra Blayze) – who is credited with introducing the move to American women’s wrestling – thinks Lesnar is a danger to her tip.
“I get scared every time I see Brock Lesnar try to do a suplex,” Madusa said. “I cringe every time. Brock did that … whatever he called “German.” I would scream every time. I said, “Suplex City, my ass. “That’s not a German suplex!”
According to the WWE Hall of Famer, his teachers in Japan taught him how to perform the correct maneuver, saying that the movement requires a lot of precision to avoid injury to the opponent. Madusa’s opponents were few and far between during her time in WWE and WCW.
The former champion recently bemoaned the dearth of talent in her era, calling it a “lost era” in women’s wrestling.
“Not much, my list is two people, you know?” Madusa taught. In the WWF locker room, Madusa worked first with Japanese legend Bull Nakano and American comedy wrestler Bertha Faye.
Despite the quality over quantity aspect of her era, Madusa believes that much of her progress has not been made in later generations, and recently said that Trish Stratus and her fellow wrestlers made women’s wrestling which is a “sideshow.”
“Trish gave room to the Bella Twins and others,” Madusa said, “but I’m building a foundation for the 4 Horsewomen.”
