The Fantastic Fabulous Moolah

Published: 11/3/2011

The Fabulous Moolah (Wikimedia Commons/Yagobo79)Lillian Ellison – better known as The Fabulous Moolah – led the world of women's professional wrestling for years. From her debut in 1949 to her record-breaking WWE Women's Championship win at age 76 in 1999, she was at the top of her game. Not just a wrestler, she also trained female wrestlers, served as valet to male wrestlers, and acted as a wrestling promoter.

But, of course, it's her wrestling we remember best – and today, on the fourth anniversary of her death, that's what we're spotlighting. We invite you to join us as we watch a few great Fabulous Moolah bouts…
