Cyndi Lauper founded her return to pro wrestling following a twenty seven year hiatus. Cyndi Lauper was the special guest star on WWE Raw Monday night, 18th June. Along with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Captain Lou Albano, Lauper helped catapult a new boom in the sport called "The Rock-N-Wrestling Connection." "Rock-N-Wrestling" helped spawn Wrestlemania, a Hulk Hogan cartoon, and a mega event on MTV. As part of the boom, Cyndi Lauper managed female superstar Wendi Richter to a championship victory over the legendary Fabulous Moolah. The singer, known for her bizarre and colorful apparel, was joined in the ring by fellow "Rock-n-Wrestling" beacons "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Wendi Richter.
