Ron Trodgard: "(During a match between Madusa Micelli and Princess Victoria, following a powerslam by Princess Victoria) That slam HAD to knock Madusa Micelli out! No one can withstand a slam like that!"
Verne Gagne: "If Madusa was Smart, she'd give up now!"
Ron Trodgard: "But, you know she won't. Madusa is a FIGHTER, not a quitter."
Verne Gagne: "Well, that kick from Princess Victoria sure shut Madusa up that time. Too bad she couldn't keep her down, though."
Ron Trodgard: "Wait a minute! Madusa is coming over HERE. She should get back in that ring!"
Madusa: "You have something to say to me? Say it to my face!"
Verne Gagne: "Looks like Madusa is a little ticked off here."
Ron Trodgard: "But, look at this move! Princess Victoria may have her here! AND SHE DOES! What a victory!"

Madusa Miceli: "You will NEVER defeat me, Magnificent Mimi! NEVER, I tell you! Not you, not your friends, not anyone! And not NOW, not tomorrow, not EVER! I will ALWAYS be the AWA Ladies' Champion, and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it!"
