WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young Has NOT Passed Away

Mike Mooneyham from The Post and Courier newspaper originally reported that WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young passed away early Thursday morning at her Columbia home at the age of 90. She was hospitalized back on December 30th and was taken off life support at her home Wednesday night after being under hospice care.


Mike Mooneyham of The Charleston Post & Courier in South Carolina, who has been reporting updates on Mae Young since she was hospitalized in December, has retracted his report and says she has not passed away after incorrectly reporting it earlier.

    :( R.I.P. Mae, I can guarantee no other diva will be wrestling in their 80’s-90’s like you were. Best diva ever, we’re going to miss you :(

    I loved Mae and Moolah. Bet they are tearing it up in a ring in heaven. My deepest condolences to her family.
