WWE likes to write their own history and they’ve been pretty good at it. They would be way more successful if the internet wasn’t around to tear back the curtain as often as it does to tell the entire story.
After WWE announced the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal was on the way for WrestleMania a ton of people immediately rose up against the idea. After all, even though she might be a treasured member of pro wrestling’s history, the real Fabulous Moolah wasn’t really that nice of a person.
But regardless of how hard WWE tries to censor Moolah’s history, it looks like there’s little they can do about it at this point.
Plenty of people have come forward in the years since her passing and told stories which don’t paint Moolah in a positive light at all. As Dave Meltzer pointed out in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter the idea of female talent being sent to territories to earn money by working and sleeping with promoters and other talent didn’t start with The Fabulous Moolah, the practice didn’t stop with her either.
This kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable in today’s climate and as we look back it’s just another illustration of how messy history can be.
Former WCW Star Disco Inferno recently sent out a tweet to not only show off some cash he had around, but he also used it as a metaphor to describe what he thinks of Moolah. Obviously, the only Moolah he cares about is the kind that you can deposit in a bank and he might not be the only one as the backlash seems to continue as WWE tries to recreate pro wrestling history once again.
