UPDATE: Rumors of Mae Young’s Death False

UPDATE: Mike Mooneyham, a wrestling columnist, has reported that reports of Mae passing away are false. She is still at home and off life support but has not passed yet. He tweeted:

TMZ has reported on the story, reinforcing the story that Mae is still alive.

Original Story:

Truly a sad day for the wrestling world. According to The Charston Post and Courier, Mae Young has passed away at 90.

As we reported, Young was hospitalized on December 30 and sent home under hospice care. She died early Thursday morning in her home.

Mae Young had over a 70 year career in the wrestling business, which is practically unheard of. She was the first ever NWA U.S. Women’s Champion, a WWE Hall-of-Famer and one of the staples of the WWE.

Rest in peace, Mae.

    I’m so happy to hear that she hasn’t passed, although I won’t get my hopes up, as harsh as it sounds, I have a feeling it’s going to happen before the week ends. =(

    People need to shush about her hanging in there being such a great thing. If she stays and is in terrible health then it’s kinder to her to pass over.

      I understand what your saying but you don’t have to tell anyone to “shush”, their only wishing her the best.

    I believe whoever reported her death in the beginning should be ashamed of themselves for just wanting a “hot story” before double-checking their source but anyways I hope she gets better, despite her age.
