Well, this didn't take long: WWE has announced that The Fabulous Moolah's name will be removed from the WrestleMania battle royal. Apparently they got hip to the fact that this dreadful woman's life should not be celebrated.

People started letting WreslteMania title sponsor Snickers know how felt about the name over the last couple of names, Snickers issued an unhappy press release, WWE changed the name, and Snickers said they were happy.

If you want to affect change, messing with people's money is a solid bet. People complaining to WWE would've probably done nothing but getting a sponsor to flip makes things happen.

Does something like this make potential future sponsors more likely or less likely to hitch their wagon to WWE? Is it worth the aggravation?

Another positive from this is that we most likely dodged another Hulk Hogan return.

While I'm glad they were basically forced to remove her name, the point remains that nobody up there thought "Hmm, maybe this isn't a good idea and perhaps we could avoid a PR nightmare."

I guess "first-ever Wrestlemania Women's Battle Royal" is a good enough name, though we are pretending the Miss WrestleMania battle royal didn't happen at WM 25 (and really, between the Kid Rock concert and Santina winning, I'm okay with pretending that never happened).

Mmm, and the Kid Rock concert dumped Miz, Morrison, Carlito, and Primo's tag-title unification match off the main card. Hey, guess who's joining the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame this year?
