Remembering Fabulous Moolah
Mae Young remembers her longtime friend and colleague, Fabulous Moolah:
Lillian was a very dear friend of mine, a sweet, wonderful girl. I loved her very dearly. We had a lot of very good times together. Back in 1949, she came to Charlotte, N.C., and I was wrestling and helped to train her.
When I went to work for Vince McMahon, Sr., Lillian called him, and he asked me what I thought about having her come work for him, and I told him, "I think it would be the greatest thing in the world." That's how this friendship started. She never changed, other than wanting to be the best girl in the business. My heart's broken about it, but there's nothing we can do.
