Thank U. Even i' it's been 18 to 20 years since I stepped in the ring and took a single bump, I'm excited. I am very honored to represent the past, then, golden era of women that need to be recognized, heard and appreciated. #GoldenEra #Useyourvoice https://t.co/vqVVHQF1lJ— Madusa/AlundraBlayze (@Madusa_rocks) October 27, 2018
