It's not the same. Warrior said Un-PC things (people can believe what they want), Moolah was running an abusive prostitution ring. Not the same in any shape or form.

re: How could the WWE be so stupid to name a battle royal after Moolah? *Update* Name has been dropped

I haven't done a deeper research to which extent the allegations against her are true. But the backlash was obvious, since a lot of the negative info is even on her wikipedia page and that is where lazy wrestling writers will look at.

That they still done it and not even to do things like caring to manipulate the wiki page over the last months seems to incline this was a lone decision by Vince McMahon. Smarky thought: for Wrestlemania he probably wanted somebody that he can relate to (and there aren't many women he can relate to likely, not really a person that sees himself as feminine^^) and Moolah may from the reports be the type of person he can...

Considering AJ was born in 1987 and Lita was her inspiration what you said was beyond ignorant and stupid.

If Moolah didn't create a PR nightmare for Vince during a MUCH more popular time then I can see why WWE wouldn't see a problem now YEARS removed and with a whole new audience as apart of their new marketing.

You mean like the scandals rocking gymastics? The people in power were in on it. But keep defending a piec of shit. Easier to ignore everything else you say.

This only furthers Moolah's heel persona. I like her more now that I've heard of the allegations. Completely shameless, an utter disgrace but with some legendary real-life heel type stuff. Same with hearing stories of Shawn, Flair, and Piper. I only like them more.

lololol the casuals will listen to Alexa Bliss and Bayleys IG posts over the dirt sheets and IWC. So this post is the equivalent of speaking to a wall.

Considering how outspoken most of the women's locker room is these days, none of them have had anything negative to say about the name of the battle royal. My guess is they're not allowed to say anything bad about it, but it's just an interesting observation.

Newsweek and Forbes has picked up on it so it’s not just the IWC and “dirt sheets”.

Who cares?! Everybody is offended about something nowadays, it gets old real quick.
