Wrestling Legend Mae Young has passed away

The great Mae Young has passed away from an undisclosed illness. She was 90. Mae was one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. She is the only wrestler to ever wrestle in 9 different decades(1939-2010). Her last few years in the WWE were for pure comic relief, but she never failed to entertain. She had trained countless wrestlers in her career. Mae is a multiple time champion, in the days where wrestling was very regionalized.

20140115-080351.jpgMae was a pioneer of women in professional wrestling. She helped grow the sport during World War II, wrestling all over the United States and Canada. She is one of the first women I ever saw wrestle. She could go just as good as the men. Whenever I have seen her on tv, or at events, she never failed to entertain. She will be missed.
