Today in History: Mae Young gives birth to a hand


On this day in history:

February 28th, 2000 | Mae Young‘s pregnancy was nothing short of miraculous: not only was she in her 70s, but she went into labor one month after discovering that she was pregnant. After collapsing at ringside with labor pains, she was rushed to the backstage area, where she smoked a cigar and, with friend The Fabulous Moolah and boyfriend Mark Henry by her side, pushed as hard as she could. It wasn’t long before she gave birth, but it wasn’t to a baby: what emerged was a human hand.
