Mae Young Hospitalized

Reports began surfacing a few days ago that WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young had been hospitalized for an unknown illness. According to these reports, she was placed in hospice care.

Today, more details have emerged, revealing that Mae is back in her home, but is still receiving hospice care.

While we still don’t know what has afflicted Mae, the presence of hospice care seems to indicate that she is terminally ill.

Mae last appeared on WWE television last March as part of an “Old School” Raw. While there, she celebrated her 90th birthday and was presented with a replica Divas Championship in a post-show celebration, being dubbed “forever the Divas Champion”.

Our thoughts are with Mae and her family.

    Hospice care does not sound good at all, but I’ll be praying for the best but unfortunately expect the worse. Get better Mae, we love you!

  • Snap!…?

    You know shes a true legend if even the commenters on wrestlezone have nothing but respect for and they can be Assholes sometimes. I hope she recovers… She is one of the best and indeed will be divas champ forever. Still hoping she makes it too 100 so she can wrestle and beat Stephanie!

    • BorisG

      We all hope that, Mae is a strong woman and a legend.

  • Alex Castaneda

    Oh My God, I Hope Shes Alright.

  • Raekon

    Very sorry to hear that and I hope that she will recover as much so we can see her again.
    It was still great to see that the WWE aknowledged her for her accomplishments in her younger years.
    At a time and Age in which most of us wasn’t even Born.
    She is a awesome Lady and a true Champion!
    Get well Mae! :)

      • OJ Von Erich

        • CrazyGirlAJ (#ChickBusters)

          No buddy buddy.She losted it.

          • OJ Von Erich

            The most wicked neck breaker.

          • Sass.

            I love the Layout. So much better than that whack kick she’s been using.

          • OJ Von Erich
          • Sass.

            Yesss! That was by far my favourite of Layla’s, but I feel she was told to not use it in the same way Michelle was banned from using the Wings of Love.

          • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

            It was considered to manly.

          • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

            Yea, but i love the facelift but no one could sell it right, also the nasty kick before Kofi started using it. She kick the shit out of Kelly lmao

          • Sass.

            Omg I remember that, in that handicap match? I thought she straight up broke Kelly’s nose. :L

          • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

            The most perfect one is when she did it to Maria. Layla and Natalya vs Maria and Mickie. Best Nasty kick

          • OJ Von Erich

            Her spinning 450 kick was the best!

          • OJ Von Erich

            Brie sold The Layout the best!

          • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

            She looked like a fish out of water. Lol she did that Alicia Fox style.

          • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

            2k needs to get this animated and put as the Lay out. Or any Layout layla did on Tiffany.

          • CrazyGirlAJ (#ChickBusters)

            Well it’s Nikki fault for letting Brie switch.She also got a rematch in a Triple Threat match…So :).

    • Effy Zoey Croft

      This makes me smile and cry at the same time :’)

    • Lay “V.I.P” Royalty

      Only tears. Dear god i love this woman.

    • BorisG

      She deserved that. <3 Mae is a legend.

  • Numero47

    Stay Strong Mae ????????????

  • MrMexican99

    She really is a legend. I hope WWE does acknowledge her on Monday. Let’s just hope they don’t try to use this critical situation as part of their storylines. WWE is known to do that. -.-

    Prayers out to Mae and her family.

    • Ryan Martinez

      I don’t think they would, seeing as how it would have to involve the divas…or bringing back sexual chocolate.

  • Ryan Martinez

    Oh no!

  • Kyle White

    I don’t want to lose her. When Moolah died it was terrible for me. When Mae was presented with the divas championship on her 90th birthday I cried. She is truly a legend and role model! I hope she gets better!

  • Effy Zoey Croft

    Oh god no :( This is horrible news :( I really hope she’ll be ok. Prayers for her and her family.

  • OJ Von Erich

    I’ll never forget the day Mae Young called LayCool “Sluts” & “Bitches” on live (PG) TV!

    Nikki Bella’s reaction always make me laugh! ? Mae Young ?

    • BorisG

      Love Mae. She is a legend!

  • WweRules32

    I Hope Mae gets better soon and fast

  • Whalenx

    I always dreaded this day :( Prayers for her & her family.

  • Izzy4lw

    I am so sad to hear this. Hospice indicates a terminal illness and usually that the patient will have less than 6 months to live. I sincerely hope that she is able to go into rehab, but if not then she’s lived a full life, and a great one. Either way, she’ll be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Mae Young vs. Fabulous Moolah – WWE Women’s Championship
