WWE drops The Fabulous Moolah name from WM34 women’s battle royal after backlash

Following the fan backlash and bad press that came along after WWE announced that the women’s battle royal at WrestleMania would be in honor of The Fabulous Moolah, WWE made a complete 180 and decided to ditch Moolah’s name from the event.

“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,” a WWE statement said. Stephanie McMahon also chimed in, thanking the WWE fans for using their voice.

The women’s battle royal – titled The Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal – was announced this week on Raw and it’s a match that will give the rest of the WWE women a spot on the WrestleMania card just like the men have with the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

However, unlike Andre The Giant, Moolah had a shady past to say the very least which also involved prostitution of her trainees at the Girl Wrestling Enterprises booking agency she ran several decades ago.
