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.
