WWE Announcement On The WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal

Ronda Rousey has brought WWE more attention

In a surprising move from WWE, they have renamed the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royale and it will now be known as the Wrestlemania Women's Battle Royale. Allegations include stories of Moolah stealing wages from young female wrestlers, as well as coercing them to provide sexual favors for promoters and wrestlers in the business for decades.What was once going to be called the Fabulous Moolah Women's Battle Royal will now be named something much simpler. However, the famed star had a dark side which consisted of many deplorable things, including pimping other female wrestlers out to make extra money on the side, as '80s wrestler Mad Maxine stated in the past (via Slam Sports).

A number of fans and wrestling journalists - including our own Thomas Broome-Jones - have taken WWE to task over the last 48 hour for celebrating the life and legacy of the Fabulous Moolah.

A petition circulated online to urge WWE to change the name, and it had accumulated 10,000 signatures on Wednesday (just two days after Raw aired).

"After further consideration, we believe it's best to proceed with the name 'WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal, '" the WWE rep said.

If that's not fixed, the steering wheel could detach from the vehicle , causing the driver to lose the ability to steer. The steering wheel bolts can loosen over time - and have actually caused two crashes and one injury.

The Fabulous Moolah had a long career in wrestling, beginning in 1949. It was nearly like a cult, with women later saying that they had to move into Moolah's house and she took most of their money when it came to wrestling bookings. Moolah passed away in 2007 at her home in SC at the age of 84.

Apparently, "WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal" is not a suitable replacement name for the WWE Universe, and other names were suggested.

The same statement was echoed in a tweet by Stephanie McMahon.

As a result, Mars Wrigley Confectionery, the parent company of Snickers, issued a statement that was sent to Wrestling INC regarding the outrage. "We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment".
