Elizabeth "Miss Elizabeth" Hulette Obituary
Miss Elizabeth was called by many the first lady of wrestling. She carved out a career in that male dominated sport by managing and marrying star wrestlers.

When World Championship Wrestling folded in 2001, she settled into a life with wrestling super star Lex Luger, whose real name is Lawrence Pfohl. They shared a $300,000 house in Marietta's River Stone subdivision.

Cobb County authorities have not declared an official cause of death. Elizabeth Hulette, 42, was found unresponsive in her residence May 1 and died at WellStar Kennestone Hospital. An autopsy was performed, and no foul play is suspected. Results of toxicology tests necessary to determine cause of death can take a month, according to the medical examiner's office.

Ms. Hulette entered the world of professional wrestling as the manager of then-husband Randy "Macho Man" Savage. They entered the World Wrestling Federation together in 1985, and their careers took off immediately. They divorced, and eventually Ms. Hulette moved to WCW based in Atlanta.

"Elizabeth was one of the sweetest, most wonderful people," said Irene Carlos, who often worked out with her at Main Event Fitness, where Mr. Pfohl is part owner.
