On March 15, 2018, WWE issued a statement announcing that they have renamed the “Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal” match.

“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.”

On the March 12th episode of Monday Night RAW, WWE had officially announced in a video to host the first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 to pay tribute to the former WWF Women’s Champion. However, the announcement was immediately met with severe backlash from social media due to Moolah’s history of mistreating women and the backlash intensified as WWE re-aired the announcement on the following day on SmacKdown Live before reversing course and officially declaring the renaming today.

The Commissioner of Monday Night RAW, Stephanie McMahon also took to Twitter regarding the matter.

One of Moolah’s trainees, Jeannine Mjoseth, better known by her ring-names Max Maxine and Lady Maxine, revealed to ProWrestlingSheet regarding Moolah’s tyranny over female wrestlers,

“A lot of women paid to train at her school and then went out on the road. They risked life and limb in their matches and she repaid them with the worst kinds of abuses. She skimmed their money, she ignored women who were badly hurt, she pimped women out to creepy men and on and on. She was not a mother figure. She was more like Kali, the Indian Goddess of Destruction. I met her in my early 20s and I had never met such a monstrous person.”

WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal will feature female wrestlers from RAW, SmackDown Live and NXT and will take place at WrestleMania 34 on April 8, 2018, live from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
