"As amazing as it sounds, The Fabulous Moolah is set to wrestle (Match is tentatively scheduled) on the September 15th episode of Raw, which will be in Moolah's hometown of Columbia, SC. Vince McMahon made a promise to Moolah many years ago saying that he would allow her to have a match on her 80th birthday."
--------- How much do you want to bet she will get thrown threw a table by someone. I wonder if we will see Mae Young as well. Oh joy! And you know there is only one thing to follow that: Mae Young Playboy Photo Shoot!!!!!
Homer: I want to set the record straight: I thought the cop was a prostitute.
All sarcasm aside it is amazing that she could still bump a little at age 80. And if you think about, wasnt she womens champ in the eighties (maybe 90s I dont know), that means she was champ at 60! As cheesy as segments with them are, and as much as I role my eyes when I see her and Mae appear on TV, it is pretty incredible that they still take bumps at that age (not to mention going through tables, or getting powerslammed by Test).
Back when they were teasing the Trish turn/losing streak. This could have been the breaking point. Trish works really intense on Moolah and announcers even maybe another babyface diva can come out and say "It's just an exhibition, calm down Trish.". But Trish totally gives out a beating... But now that seems not to be the case
Now I would actually have Molly defeat Moolah and then proclaim herself Fabulous Molly Holly... But then again I'm sensing some sort of babyface turn for Molly or maybe I'm not. Who knows the past 2-3 months have had the most illogical booking for the Raw Diva that I can imagine.
The thing is can you get heel heat off Moolah? She certainly doesn't have the Freddie Blassie respect level of the audience because of all the horrible lame stuff she's done in the last few years. When she comes out don't people just cringe... It is her hometown, so maybe she means something there.
The Fabulous Molly would be great moniker--she gets rid of the Holly surname, so her name gets a less sing-song effect, and it would be for the women like Nature Boy transferred from Buddy Rodgers to Ric Flair.
oh, BTW, it is Molly's current hometown as well.
(edited by deadbeater3 on 24.8.03 2149) The divas should not be about T&A, they should be about Kicking A.
Meltz reported that Vince changed his mind on that after Keivn Dunn pointe dout that a classier direction would essentially render the Diva Search meaningless. Interesting to see which concept he gave the boot to. Good Raw, but perplexingly booked.
