Today in History: Molly and Spike Get a Table For Two

On this day in history:

May 28th, 2001 | The star-crossed romance between Molly Holly and Spike Dudley certainly had its Romeo and Juliet vibes: the Hollys hated the Dudleys, and vice versa. Both families wanted Spike and Molly to have nothing to do with each other. One night on Raw in the midst of this feud, an ambush by the Hollys had the Dudleys convinced that Molly had set them up. They vowed to put her through a table for it. They fulfilled that promise later in the night, though Spike did all he could to save her, using his body as a cushion and breaking her fall through the table. It’s not quite as tragic as Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but with how unromantic wrestling can be, that kind of sentimentality is memorable.
