WWE.COM announced the death of Betty George, the first wife of the late Hall of Famer and wrestling legend Gorgeous George. Betty was 98 and passed away in Gearhart, Oregon, yesterday.

Betty made an appearance last year at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony to accept the induction of her late husband in Phoenix, Arizona.

Last year the WWE bought the rights of the 2008 John Capouya book "Gorgeous George: The Outrageous Bad-Boy Wrestler Who Created American Popular Culture," and they plan to release a movie based on his life through WWE Studios.
