Mae Young...the name alone strikes fear in the
most hardened of wrestling marks. In fact, it was just this fear
that kept us from profiling her earlier in the annals of Wrestlecrap.
You see, since we launched Wrestlecrap, it seems
every other email has asked us, "Where's Mae Young?"
and "When are you going to post Mae Young?" The public
outcry was certainly there, but our fear both for the Wrestlecrap
staff and wrestling fans as a collective was there as well.
We feared that putting her on these pages would
open Pandora's Box, and she would come back to the WWF. Think
we're kidding? Look at the Demon.
We did a profile on him because he had been off WCW television
for a while. As soon as we posted him, voila - he's back in WCW,
much to the pain and agony of all.
So it is with much trepidation that we induct
Just remember - if she comes back, we are placing
the blame squarely on you, the reader.
A bit of background.
Mae began to show up on WWF TV with the Fabulous
Moolah, and got into it with Jeff Jarrett, who at the time had
a "He Man, Woman Hater" gimmick. But ol' Double J showed
himself to be one of the smartest guys in wrestling by leaving
the WWF before becoming embroiled in a feud with the elderly
And so Mae was gone as well....or so we hoped.
The next time we saw Mae was at Stephanie McMahon's
bachelorette party where she got completely sloshed, thus establishing
her character as a crazy old horny drunk woman.
That was bad, but it was kind of funny. Sort
of. Well, maybe it wasn't funny at all, but it was a hell of
a lot better than what was to come, and it started at the 2000
Ms. Royal Rumble Swimsuit competition.
First of all, just look at the potential of this
swimsuit contest. We had Terri (pictured above) in a flesh colored
little number that left little to the imagination.
We had Miss Kitty show up in a Bubble Wrap Bikini,
which is still one of Merle's favorite moments in the entire
history of pro wrestling.
Heck, we even had Miss Jacqueline doing a dance
that would make women at strip clubs all across the country blush!
What could possibly go wrong?!
You guessed it!
Out struts Mae Young in all her glory.
You can bet that scarf was never used again!
Now she didn't REALLY say something about showing
her "puppies", did she?!
Oh you bet she did!
Thankfully, WWF censors were there to save us
from such a sight.
Well, almost. She was able to expose herself
much to the sheer horror of everyone viewing.
Of course, we later found out that she didn't
REALLY expose herself, and that the "puppies" we saw
were just makeup by the same people who worked on "There's
Something About Mary."
Whatever. I'm sure the Wrestlecrap staff aren't
the only ones that still have nightmares about it.
Not disgusting enough for you?
Well, she also decided that she needed to have
a baby with her lover, "Sexual Chocolate" Mark Henry!
Of course, had anyone actually looked into it,
they would have realized that a 72 year old woman couldn't have
a baby. Mae herself even confirmed
that it wasn't possible!
As if the thought of Mae Young being on the rag
wasn't enough to turn us all celibate, the WWF decided it would
be fun to let us see the actual birth.
Gerry Brisco had a sympathy hurl for all of us
watching the fiasco at home.
Was it a boy?
Was it a girl?
No, silly - it was a HAND!
Why no, it didn't make any sense. But how else
would you conclude an angle with an elderly woman being pregnant
with her nymphomaniacal young black lover?
Shortly after all this happened, Mark Henry got
shipped down to Ohio Valley for more training. Mae Young hasn't
been seen since.
I wish no ill will towards Mark Henry, but if
his absence means Mae Young is gone too, well, I hope he never
makes out of Jim Cornette's farm system.
