I've heard bits and pieces of this from a Cornette podcast. But, for some reason, corporate sponsors and social media had a cow about that women's battle royal at 'Mania being named after the Fabulous Moolah (the female version of the participation trophy match, known as the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal).

Does anybody have any more insight into this?

No such thing as an "essential carb."

I have not details, but why the hell would sponsors - or anyone - have an issue with her name being attached to the match?

I can think of absolutely nothing offensive or controversial about Moolah or her name.

I heard the same thing and have not heard. My guess is with all this women empowerment that WWE is pushing that they would just rather call it the "Woman's Memorial Battle Royal".

Here's what WWE has to say...


"After further consideration, we believe it's best to proceed with the name 'WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.' What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE's unwavering commitment to the Women's Division.

Following a whitewashed video package that aired on Raw, documenting the controversial legacy of Fabulous Moolah, WWE received backlash on social media almost immediately.

Horrifying accounts of Moolah's alleged misdeeds of financial and sexual exploitation were picked up by the mainstream media, including an article I wrote for Forbes this past week. Before long, anybody who dared to even Google the word "Moolah" was inundated with reports that directly contradicted the WWE-supported the notion of the Fabulous Moolah being a trailblazer for women's wrestling."
