BREAKING NEWS: WWE To Change Name Of Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal
WWE says “after further consideration” they will be changing the name of the upcoming Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34.
A rep for WWE says, “After further consideration, we believe it’s best to proceed with the name ‘WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.’ What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE’s unwavering commitment to the Women’s Division.”
WWE is making an attempt to silence fans, at least on Youtube anyway. Here is the video posted by WWE on The Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 34. WWE disabled the comments section to the video.
The event is set for next month’s WrestleMania 34. It is the latest installment in the annual Super Bowl of sports entertainment. Here’s the problem, Moolah is a huge name in the history of women’s professional wrestling. However, her reputation as a booker, trainer and mentor to other women is about as bad as it gets. Many wrestling fans think she is undeserving of such an honor.
Moolah’s backstage legacy is anything by “fabulous.” She’s widely accused by women who wrestled for her of pimping them out to men in the business, as well as skimming large chunks of their pay. Moolah, whose real name was Mary Lillian Ellisor, died in 2007 at age 84.
