RIP Fabulous Moolah

By: Lauriein General

Mary Lillian Ellison, professional lady wrestler also known as The Fabulous Moolah, has died at the age of 84. Since the 1950's she wowed audiences with her signature moves, the leg lock, and the knee drop clothesline, and continued wrestling until very recently. Check out this awesome documentary to learn more: Lipstick and Dynamite (which was featured in BUST a few years back, natch). There is also a book about Moolah that came out in 2002.
