AEW Stars Called Out For Refusing To Train: “Are They That Much Of A C*nt?”

A WWE legend didn’t think much of the AEW women’s division.

During her own in-ring career, Alundra Blayze, also known as Madusa, found success in both WWE and WCW while also competing in Japan. The WWE Hall of Famer is regularly praised as a trailblazer and helping raise the profile of women’s wrestling in the United States.

In more recent years, Madusa has made occasional appearances for WWE, while also featuring for AEW back in 2020. During this period, the star appeared on television to announce the Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament: The Deadly Draw, before later presenting the winners with the cup.

As well as appearing on-screen, Madusa also attended some of the women’s training sessions but was left frustrated by what she found.

Speaking on her Paving The Way podcast, the star recalled Dustin Rhodes asking her to get involved with the sessions.

“I don’t know if the girls train at AEW. I know when I was there that first time. I was there for a couple of days, and they had open training because they had a ring there, and that’s when Dustin [Rhodes] was training the girls, and he’s like, ‘Oh my God, I’m so glad you’re here. Do you want to come to practice?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ll just, you know, I’ll just sit out here,’ and he goes, ‘Do you want to help train the girls?’ I said, ‘I’m honored.'”

She explained she was surprised to find to find out the sessions were voluntary, and couldn’t believe how few women turned up.

“So we were getting ready to start, and I’m like ‘Where’s everybody?’ And he’s like ‘Well it’s voluntary,’ and I’m like ‘So it’s f*cking free you got Dustin f*cking Rhodes training the girls where are they? Why aren’t they here?’ And I was a little baffled, and he’s like… ‘It’s the kids you know. What am I going to say? It’s the kids, the new kids of today,'”

Madusa Unimpressed By Unnamed AEW Star

Madusa went on to say that at the time the “girl’s work sucked,” and the situation was a “sh*t show” that lacked direction. Expanding further, the veteran recalled a conversation with an unnamed AEW star who seemed to have little interest in training, instead claiming they were injured.

“She turned to me and said ‘I don’t have to go.’ I said ‘What do you mean you don’t have to go to school?’ ‘I’m on the injured list,’ and I looked at her, and she had her makeup all done. She’s walking just fine. Everything’s fine, but sometimes, internally, you just don’t know.

She goes, ‘Yeah, I have a doctor, I don’t need to go, I don’t have to practice’, and I say, ‘Well, you look great to me.’ I said, ‘Why can’t you sit outside the ring and learn something?’ She goes; ‘It’s voluntary, and I don’t need to show.’

I’m not saying this person’s name for a reason because I’ll mention it probably later in another episode, but it really opened my eyes to what and how the women—I’m not going to say to all of them how they may look at this business as a meal ticket is money only or do they really respect it. Are they that much of a c**t? You know what I’m saying?

Well, I’m just saying I didn’t know we were visiting the vagina monologues tonight, and anybody that’s seen that play will get that joke. Um, okay, [I’m] last thinking you arrogant little bitch.”

In a recent interview, Tony Khan claimed the AEW women’s division is now the best in the world after adding the likes of Mercedes Mone.
