WWE Drops Fabulous Moolah, Name Changed to WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal

WWE announces Fabulous Moolah memorial battle royal

WWE have bowed to pressure to change the name of the upcoming Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal after two days of backlash and online controversy. However, that immediately did not bode well with the WWE Universe, and an outrage occurred.

As of this writing, a YouTube video on WWE's channel is still up anouncing the battle royal, but comments were disabled.

This isn't right at all, if you want to have a Battle Royale, name it after someone worthy, like Miss Elizabeth, Chyna, Trish, Lita, Sensational Sheri, Jacqueline, Alundra Blaze.

Much like The Andre The Giant Battle Royal match for the men, which began in 2014, the 30-woman battle royal match was going to debut at Wrestlemania 34 and would be named after wrestling legend The Fabulous Moolah.

A Reddit thread encouraged WWE fans to reach out to the sponsors of WrestleMania 34, including Snickers and Rocket League, to inform them of Moolah's sketchy past.

The company noted that they were recently made aware of the WWE's decision to honor The Fabulous Moolah and that this act is "unacceptable". "We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment". These sequence of events successfully led to the removal of Moolah's name.

"What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE's unwavering commitment to the Women's Division".

It has been a memorable season for women's wrestling as WWE featured the first ever women's Money in the Bank, Elimination Chamber and Royal Rumble match. She even used the #ChangeTheName to further show her diplomacy.

"WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal " What's the story?

The WWE website has finally updated the match listing to reflect the changes.

She had a reputation for beating and breaking her students when she was a trainer. Since then, though, both have mentioned Chyna's name in a more positive light, which could hint at a future Hall of Fame induction.
