Fabulous Moolah is considered an icon in women’s wrestling. However, it recent years her legacy has come under criticism due to allegations that she exploited the female wrestlers at her training facility.
On his podcast Something To Wrestle With, Bruce Prichard discussed the allegations along with his friendship with Moolah.
Here’s what he had to say.
“Well you know, I’ve heard those stories over the years and I find them to be, as I said, ludicrous is probably the best [word]. When you call Moolah a pimp, that has a sexual connotation to it. What Moolah did for the business and for the women in general, was she protected them from the unscrupulous promoters that wouldn’t pay, and — she protected the women, is what Moolah did. And I think that every claim, when you hear those type of things about someone that you know, and that you know for many many years, you base your opinion on what you know. And every claim was refuted by someone. And I think that to do that to the memory of someone after they’re gone in that regard as far as — I don’t know.”
