WRESTLEMANIA 34: The Fabulous Moolah battle royal announced for WrestleMania 34

Posted on 3/13/118 by Colin Vassallo

The WWE women will get their own battle royal at
WrestleMania just like the men, with a battle royal named
after WWE Hall of Famer The Fabulous Moolah.

Both battle royals, this one and the Andre The Giant
Memorial one, serve as a way to get pretty much everyone on
the roster a spot on the WrestleMania card, be it the
Kickoff show or the main show. This year, women from Raw,
Smackdown, and even NXT will be taking part in this battle

So far there have been no mention of how many participants
will be in this match but the final count will be around 20
to 30 females. Just like the Andre battle royal, the winner
will receive a trophy bearing the Fabulous Moolah.

The selection of Moolah for this battle royal will surely
raise some eyebrows in the industry as unlike Andre The
Giant, Moolah was not known to be one of the nicest women in
the business.

Moolah ran the Girl Wrestling Enterprises booking agency in
the late 50s and started training female wrestlers, forcing
all the women in her camp to sign a deal where she gets a
cut on all their bookings and rent apartments from her list
of properties. Over the course of several years, many women
who were part of GWE came out and accused Moolah of being
their pimp, pretty much forcing her students into
prostitution to make the men wrestlers happy.

Moolah, real name Mary Lillian Ellison, died on November 2,
2007 at the age of 84 in Columbia, South Carolina.
