Tommy Dreamer and Beulah McGillicutty

Beyond the Dreamer-Raven conflict, Beulah proved she could more than handle herself in between the ropes. She didn’t want to be treated differently than her male counterparts, either. She carried herself like a professional throughout the toughest of situations.

“I didn’t want to show any weakness, especially in ECW’s locker room,” Beulah said. “I even refused to cry when I broke my wrist punching Bill Alfonso in the head. The following week I was in Japan with a cast up to my shoulder but I never let anyone see me cry.”

Beulah is also most remembered for her part in what may have been ECW’s most shocking match. It was an unlikely contest between herself and scrawny manager Bill Alfonso. A cut to the head of the former referee led to both competitors being covered in crimson by the final bell.

“I didn’t even realize how beat up he was until after I showered after the match,” Beulah said as she described watching the claret wash off. “It was gross!”

By 1998, however, the hardcore atmosphere created by characters like The Sandman, Axl Rotten and New Jack had taken its toll on Beulah. She left ECW that year to pursue other goals. “I just felt it was time for me to move on with my life. I was turning 30 and wanted to go back to college and start a family,” she explained.
