WWE Hall-of-Famer Mae Young Passes Away at 90 #WWEMoms 1

Tonight, Stephanie McMahon tweeted that WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young had passed away at the age of 90.


Last week, many in the WWE Universe knew that Mae Young had fallen seriously ill so to some, the news was a matter of time. For fans of the WWE, Mae Young will forever be an icon in WWE history. Some might say she paved the pathway for WWE Divas and female sports entertainers.

“There will never be another Mae Young,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. “Her longevity in sports entertainment may never be matched, and I will forever be grateful for all of her contributions to the industry. On behalf of WWE, I extend our sincerest condolences to her family and friends.”

One of the original WWE Divas, Young began her sports entertainment career in 1939, and went on to perform in the ring for an unprecedented eight decades.

In addition to her many in-ring achievements, Young became a trainer for many female sports-entertainers, including WWE Hall of Famer The Fabulous Moolah.

Young was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. In March 2013, WWE Superstars and fans joined Young to celebrate her 90th birthday live on Monday Night Raw.

Rest in Peace Mae Young. The WWE Universe will always remember you.
