WrestleMania weekend will cement another women’s wrestling legend when WWE presents its Hall of Fame Class of 2018.
WWE had this to say about the announcement: “The two were trailblazers in the squared circle, creating a path that helped lead to today’s Women’s Evolution. It is perfectly fitting that Holly, a two-time WWE Women’s Champion, inducts Ivory, a three-time titleholder, into sports-entertainment immortality.”
Molly Holly was recently invited back to WWE to participate in the Women’s Royal Rumble in January. She came out at 12, performed her signature Molly-go-round, and eliminated Sarah Logan.
She currently serves as a female coach at The Academy School of Professional Wrestling in Minneapolis, Minnesota owned by Ken Anderson and Shawn Daivari.
Ivory joins other women in the HOF such as:
- The Fabulous Moolah
- Sensational Sherri Martel
- Mae Young
- Trish Stratus
- Alundra Blayze
- Beth Phoenix
Legacy inductees include: Mildred Burke, June Byers, and Judy Grable.
The Hall of Fame ceremony will stream live on the WWE Network Friday, April 6, at 8 ET/5 PT.
