Re: Women playing backstage politics
Including Fabulous Moolah under the umbrella of backstage politics is downplaying what she did. Technically, it was, but she was a mean, exploitative criminal. It was disgraceful that WWE sought to honour her by naming the Wrestlemania Women's Battle Royal after her.
On a lesser note, I don't know as many stories of backstage politics amongst the women. Although there is a noticeable trend of those who start dating popular male superstars suddenly receiving pushes - Michelle McCool, Nikki Bella.
