Goodbye, Moolah. I Hardly Knew Ye.

Recently, had announced the passing of Fabulous Moolah. While I would be able to recount a passing of a legend or old-school star with their accomplishments, Moolah's only merit of note is being the longest-reigning women's champion. Actually, all things considered, twenty-plus years as champion without any gaps is actually pretty cool considering how short most title reigns are.

That footnote becomes less cool when you ultimately learn the reasoning behind the long reign, but I'm not going to dwell on that here.

Without any hard footage or pictures of young Moolah in action, people are most likely going to remember her for being the straight woman to Mae Young's attempts at exposure and giving birth to a plastic hand.

RIP, Moolah.
