WWE Hall of Famer, “The Great” Mae Young died at the spry age of 90.

Young was the youngest of eight children (one died at birth). Her mother Lilly Mae Young was a single mother (her partner left to

find work and never returned) living during the Great Depression. Young’s oldest sister Inie was severely disabled by whooping cough at a very young age.

Holy crap, what an awful childhood.  Single mother with six other kids, having lost a 7th sibling at birth AND a disabled sister… durng the depression…. I mean, it’s not Mandella-level of hard… but it’s still pretty crappy.


…to this.

Young began wrestling professionally at the age of 16.  ‘Cuz what else is a teenger gonna do during the depression?  Sign up for a machiavellian dancing marathon that proves to be a cruel exploitation of peoples desperation?  …With Jane Fonda?… Has anyone else seen “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?”

In 2004, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame which basically means that she lived her live without pissing off Vince McMahon, president of WWE and all-round douchebag.

In 1999, I watched a pay-per-view where Mae Young appeared to lose her top, exposing some saggy, wrinkly old mammaries.  It was the only time in my life that I would have willingly poured bleach into my eyes.

After researching Mae’s death (read: reading her Wikipedia page), I am happy to learn that she was wearing prosthetic boobies.  Man, that made me happy.  If it turns out that the entire reason for being the Ghoul Pool Administrator was to learn that I did not in fact see Mae Young topless, then I am clearly doing God’s work.

This hit goes to: Gianna!  Gianna ties for 1st place with the death of Mae.  She becomes the second pooler to pass my former lead.  She will be joined by many.

Happy pooling,
