There's currently three guys that I can name off the top of my head that are at 5 and still 'active' to the point that they can trot them out once a decade and have them pin someone.

Hogan, Flair and Bret all strated wrestling in the 70's

saw somehwere, maybe meltzer's site, that Mae working in the 30s may be a work. I believe her earlier matches that have been "verified" were in 1941. I believe she worked a show the night Pearl Harbor was bombed.

Unless Flair's planning to live into his 100's, I doubt he'll be challenging this record.

As for Hogan, he'll be wrestling well into the 21st century, once his head is placed in a jar (Futurama-style) and attached to a 300-pound robotomototomaton.

I would tend to agree with you, she was born in 1923, so to have wrestled in 39 she would have been 16, not unheard of, but I do have a hard time believing that.

She (or Mean Gene) claimed on Raw that she debuted when she was 17. It's not at all unheard of. Harley Race was 17 when he debuted, Roddy Piper was 15. Wasn't there a tag team made up of 14 year old girls wrestling in one of the larger indy organizations just within the last couple of years?

Does working as a lumberjack count as wrestling? If so, Piper has gone 6 decades now. I'd be surprised if he lived the 31 years it would take him to tie Mae Young's record, though. (Looking at the dates, he'll be the exact same age in 31 years that Mae Young is now.)

At 87, I can only imagine how crazy Piper would be and having said that, I would put money on him against any 20something. I can see him ripping off his leg ala Mad Dog and beating someone to death with it. It will be awesome. He still would cut a better promo then 90% of that rest which is no surprise considering Mae cut one of the better ones this week.

The Briscoe Brothers were wrestling before being 18 in Delaware since there's no commission.

Gordy supposed started at 14. Bobby Eaton may have been a teenager too.

I actually thought that this was the reason she had that match.
And will have one again early 2011.
Just for this record, which is kinda awesome.

Wikipedia claims she was 15 then cites a bunch of sources. I don't care enough to check their validity myself, but the very fact that there's conflicting information seems to make it slightly less likely.

Eiher that or WWE raised it by 2 years because it's not a good idea to encourage 15 year olds to be boneheads and clowns and 'try this at home'.

I'd rather choose to believe that it's true.

It's such a stretch to call what happened Monday a "wrestling match" with Mae Young, but I guess it would count.

Who cares if it is a work? I kinda dig that we in smarky smark internet land aren't for sure. Good for her. She's had my respect since she took Bubba's Bubba Bomb through a table.

Sing this special song. It's just for you.
The picture in picture interviews were awesome on Velocity, awesome on SmackDown, and awesome tonight. They will, in fact, always be awesome.

Adjusted for accuracy.

Cody and Goldy's interactions need to be kept rare so they can stay golden. They're the new Snitsky/Heidenreich!

Yeah Cole should've turned it off or at least down a bit. Lost in the shuffle of Cole's antics: Daniel Brian main evented Raw! If it wasn't for Colt Cabana winning Macy's Seasonal Employee of the month the same night, it'd be possible to say Samoa Joe is the least successful of the OG ROH grads.

You can mention Koko but you won't give him a paycheck to show up? Did no one on the writing staff see Beyond the Mat? Cut the man a break/check.

I think she figures that if she borders on face/heel, she can be on TV for longer periods of time. That seems to be her goal, despite it not being the best thing for the WWE.
