WWE announces the first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34, where female wrestlers from Raw, Smackdown and NXT will compete.
This is very controversial because many female wrestlers have come forward with stories accusing Moolah of being a pimp that often provided various wrestling promoters with unsuspecting female wrestlers that would be used as sex objects.
The most known allegation comes from Sweet Georgia Brown family, who told her daugther that she was often raped, given drugs and made an addict in an intentional attempt by Moolah and her husband to control her. You can read more about this allegation in this article
She has been accused of using her financial influence to control the women's wrestling scene and ensure that other women did not gain greater recognition.
She required all women that received training at her camp to sign a contract that allowed her to function as their booker and receive 25% of their booking fee. Trainees were also required to rent duplex apartments on her property and they were responsible for paying her for rent and utilities. Moolah would collect the women wrestlers' pay from promoters, and after taking out her own pay, would only give the girls half of the money they were owed (keeping half of their pay for herself, plus her own pay) and telling them that was all the promoter gave her to give them.
Wrestling fans are mad at WWE for this decision, yet many female WWE wrestlers are celebrating this (although probably the company is telling them to say that)
Moolah represented the Women's division!! She was THE standard bearer and an example for generations of female performers. Mae and Moolah are together ... smiling right now! 🤼♀️ #WrestleMania #WomensWrestling pic.twitter.com/vJ202nOgM1— Nattie (@NatbyNature) March 13, 2018
