As expected, they announced the "Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal." I'm a little surprised with the naming of it, only because the WWE moved on from her in favor of Mae Young as the "trailblazer" of her era, and because of stories that came out after her death about her reprehensible behavior as a human being that tried to monopolize women's wrestling and whore her female trainees out as prostitutes under the threat of physical abuse.

Monopolize women's wrestling to me = just how it is. Vince tried to take over the wrestling world in the 80w. And he was able to do it

Now pimping out that women. That's fucking horrible. If it's true. Some women have defended moolah

They had the mae young classic. So I'm not surprised they named it after moolah.

I figure it's gotta' be someone who:

1- Is dead (hence "Memorial")
2- Had a significant stint with WWF/WWE

The "Chyna Memorial Battle Royal" doesn't really seem appropriate, either. Sensational Sherri was more known as a manager t in the WWF. Trish Stratus, Madusa/Alundra or even Wendi Richter are still alive. So...yeah... kinda' slim pickings.

I don't think they will ever think of Chyna in that regard. Because of the porn stuff. and her bad mouthing the WWF.
She did get screwed over by HHH literally and figuratively. So I don't blamer her for being mad at them
But not to the extent she went

There will be a women's battle royal on the WrestleMania 34 card, but it's not going to be named after the Fabulous Moolah.

WWE issued a statement this afternoon announcing that they've dropped the "Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal" name from the match: “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.”

The battle royal was first announced in a video that aired on Monday's episode of Raw, with it portraying Moolah (real name Lillian Ellison) as a pioneer for women's athletics, someone who challenged gender norms, and a trailblazer for women's equality. But the announcement was immediately met with backlash due to Moolah's history of mistreating her trainees.

Jeannine Mjoseth, who trained with Moolah and went by Mad Maxine and Lady Maxine in pro wrestling, described that mistreatment when asked for comment by Pro Wrestling Sheet: "A lot of women paid to train at her school and then went out on the road. They risked life and limb in their matches and she repaid them with the worst kinds of abuses. She skimmed their money, she ignored women who were badly hurt, she pimped women out to creepy men and on and on. She was not a mother figure. She was more like Kali, the Indian Goddess of Destruction. I met her in my early 20s and I had never met such a monstrous person."

Though the backlash online was instant, WWE re-aired the announcement video on Tuesday's SmackDown before reversing course and announcing the name change today.

Before the change, the parent company of Snickers (the presenting sponsor of WrestleMania 34) released a statement calling the name of the battle royal "unacceptable": "We were recently made aware of the World Wrestling Entertainment Inc’s (WWE) decision to honor a former wrestler during the upcoming WrestleMania 34 event. As a principle-based business that has long championed creating inclusive environments that encourage and empower everyone to reach their full potential, this is unacceptable. We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment."

The battle royal will feature women's wrestlers from Raw, SmackDown, and NXT. WWE has yet to confirm how many participants will be in it.


WWE LISTENED TO THE FANS!?!?!?!?! Ha. Sponsors, though...

Lady Maxine I remember in the WWF in the mid 80s. Unique look. Think she was 6 foot 2.

Roman over Brock

AJ Styles over Nakamura

Braun and whoever his partner is over the Bar (I think it will be Elias though Big show in his final run is the latest rumor

Nia Jax over Alexa bliss

Asuka over Charlotte

Bludgeon brothers over new day and Usos

Rude over Orton and Mahal

Alexander over the Gulak vs Ali winner

Rousey and Angle over HHH and Stephanie

Miz over Rollins and bAlor

No clue who wins the Andre the Giant battle royal. I'll say someone coming up from NXT
Drew McIntyre seems to be healthy now

As far as the woman's battle royal no clue on this one either. It'll be someone already on the roster. I'll say Bayley

Undertaker over Cena. Taker finally fucking retires.

If it is Zayn vs Owens vs Shane, I'll go with Zayn. If it becomes Shane/ Bryan vs Zayn and Owens. It'll be a double turn. Shane turns heel with Zayn. Owens turns face

14 matches this year? Yikes.

I predict the following for the kick-off:

Andre Battle Royal

Cruiserweight Finals

Smackdown 3-way tag.

One of the secondary singles title triple threats. Let's say, Miz/Balor/Rollins, because I think they're going to think getting Randy Orton on the main show is important.

I know it's getting full, but also Bliss/Jax gets the kick-off treatment. I think this year the Women's Battle Royal makes the main show for the sake of "history."

I don't see Usos going on the Kickoff Show after all these years and it being part of the TV "storyline" for Mania season.

The rest I agree with. Or just do a 6 hour Mania without the label of "pre-show" matches and get on with it. :P

There's rumors, again, of Daniel Bryan being cleared, again.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Not all 14 have been announced. Just seems that's how it will play out

If they didn't have the female battle royal, Sasha vs bayley would have been on as well

Most of the matches are okay/good on paper

Except too many triple threats. Miz vs Rollins vs balor sure

No need for the smackdown tag title to be a triple threat. Just have the bludgeon brothers against the usos. But then the problem is what do you do with new day? They were the hosts last year

Zayn vs Shane vs Owens makes sense from story line. But I don't want to see Shane wrestle anymore. I do think it will wind up being a tag match

Orton vs Rude vs Mahal. Again no need for a triple threat. Just make it Orton vs Rude. Put Mahal in the battle royal

As far as the pre-show. I think it'll be the usual three matches

Cruiserweight finals for sure

I guess the men's battle royal. They won't have both on the main show

Rude vs Orton vs Mahal should be the third. But yeah it's Orton. Maybe the Bar vs strowman and his partner

Latest rumor is Carmella cashing in either after Asuka beats Charlotte. Or during the match to make it a triple threat

Lame. I'd be more open to her switching brands on the fly and trying to cash in on the Raw Women's Champion.
