Miss Elizabeth Contemplates Joining World Championship Wrestling In 1994


Less than two years after parting ways with the World Wrestling Federation, Elizabeth Hulette, famously known as Miss Elizabeth, reportedly considered joining rival promotion World Championship Wrestling in 1994. However, the terms of her contract release from the WWF prevented her from joining the Atlanta, Georgia-based organization at the time.

“Liz Huelette (formerly Elizabeth Poffo, Randy Savage’s ex) had considered coming in but her contract release from Titan in 1992 included a non-complete clause through 1995, so it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen,” Dave Meltzer reported in the February 21, 1994 issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Meltzer reported a few weeks later that while Hulette was not negotiating with WCW officials at the time, she considered attending a television taping that was being held in the Orlando, Florida metropolitan area. From 1993 through 1997, WCW taped in-ring footage for their syndicated television programs such as WCW Worldwide, WCW Pro, and WCW Prime at the Disney/MGM Studios (now known as Disney’s Hollywood Studios) in Lake Buena Vista, Florida (Lake Buena Vista is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee–Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area).

“Despite what has been reported elsewhere, Elizabeth was not at the Orlando tapings and she is not negotiating to come into WCW,” Meltzer reported in the March 21, 1994 issue of the the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. “Apparently she was thinking of going to the tapings but decided against it.”

After four years away from the ring, Hulette joined WCW in 1996 to manage “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
