Don’t miss the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, exclusively on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!
Molly Holly, a true pioneer of women’s wrestling, is the first inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021. She was surprised with the news of her induction by her former associate The Hurricane on WWE’s The Bump.
Holly will take her place in sports-entertainment history tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, during the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The special, which will stream on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else, will feature the induction of both the 2020 and 2021 classes.
After training under “The Man of 1,000 Holds” Dean Malenko, Holly broke into the wrestling business in 1997 and first appeared on television for WCW in 1999 alongside fellow Hall of Famers “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Alundra Blayze as part of Team Madness. Donning a glittering blue dress and sash, Holly looked like a beauty queen but was ruthless inside the ring.
She made the jump to WWE in 2000 and immediately became embroiled in a bitter family rivalry between her cousins — Hardcore Holly & Crash Holly — and The Dudleys. But a romance bloomed between Molly and Spike Dudley, as they quickly became the Romeo & Juliet of WWE.
Holly then embraced her inner superhero, turning into Mighty Molly as she joined forces with The Hurricane. Her newfound superpowers helped her win the Hardcore Championship at WrestleMania X8 in 2001.
After her turn as a caped crimefighter, Holly got serious — and a little self-righteous — and set her sights on WWE’s biggest female stars, starting with Trish Stratus. She defeated Stratus to win the WWE Women’s Championship for the first of her two reigns at King of the Ring 2002. Holly took on all comers during her two turns as champion, although her attitude came back to haunt her as her second reign ended, and she was shaved bald by Victoria at WrestleMania XX.
Holly left WWE in 2005 but returned to take part in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match in 2018, as well as the 2020 edition of the over-the-top-rope melee. Her impact on women’s wrestling has been felt to this day, as she is consistently cited by today’s Superstars as an inspiration. After a legendary career, Molly Holly is more than deserving of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Don’t miss Molly Holly enter the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2021 Induction Ceremony exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network elsewhere!
Molly Holly received a Hall of Fame worthy surprise from The Hurricane in an emotional moment on WWE’s The Bump.
As her former associate The Hurricane said, “You deserve it. Everybody knows you deserve it, and when this news breaks everyone is just going to be super happy for you.”
Holly will take her place in sports-entertainment history on Tuesday, April 6, during the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony that was also announced earlier today on WWE’s The Bump. The special, which will stream on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else, will feature the induction of both the 2020 and 2021 classes.
For those who recall hearing of a wrestling documentary titled Bloodstained Memoirs a while ago, we finally have an update on the film which has been four years in the making. TNA president Dixie Carter recently helped out by giving them some TNA footage to use in the documentary. The documentary may actually end up airing on television first rather than being released on DVD right away.
Bloodstained Memoirs is an upcoming, high budget, wrestling documentary DVD. Since 2005, our camera crews have followed some of the biggest superstars in the history of professional wrestling to capture some truly unique and candid moments. Exclusive interviews provide a forum where legendary guests such as Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam, Mick Foley, Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka, Molly Holly, Christian Cage, Ultimo Dragon and Keiji Muto can speak fearlessly, candidly and honestly about the things that matter most to them: their craft and the crucial events of their lives and careers that shaped them as people and performers.
Question: Hey JR, In my opinion the best female wrestler of all time is Lita. I believe No-one could touch her in the ring (Not Moolah or Trish, although I think Molly Holly is close). Anyway I was wondering who do you think was the best female wrestler was/is?
JR’s Answer: That’s like saying which of my two daughters I like better. Obviously I liked Lita as I hired her. Trish too. They were both excellent and each was their own person, in and out of the ring. Molly was an exceptional in ring performer as well and a really nice human being…perhaps too nice for the business in which she chose.
Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal fo the Women’s Championship
Coach then got on the mic as the WWE Diva’s made their way out on the stage. We are going to find out what there attire will be tonight. Coach said we are going to ask the live audience first.

Molly worked over Stacy and Nidia and jazz went at it. Jazz eliminated Nidia and then Victoria attacked Jazz from behind with a back suplex and tried to eliminate her, and did with a baseball slide. Gail Kim tried to eliminated Victoria, but Victoria reversed and got her out. Victoria then worked over Molly as Trish choked Stacy. Stacy got Trish is the corner with her long legs as Molly hit the handspring elbow on Victoria. Molly then attacked Stacy from behind and she and Trish gave Stacy a suplex, but she landed on the apron with help from Victoria. Stacy kicked Trish on the mat as Victoria worked on Trish. Stacy was knocked down with an elbow by Trish and then Trish made a save for Molly. Molly and Trish then catapulted Victoria over the top and Stacy is left with Molly and Trish. Trish slapped Stacy and Molly choked away at her. Trish then wrapped Stacy’s leg around the rope and wrenched on it. Trish scored with a snap suplex and then used her hair ribbon to choke Stacy. Stacy fought back with an elbow but Molly kicked her in the corner and then Trish held Stacy and Molly went for a move but Stacy kicked her and then knocked them both down. Stacy then went to eliminate Trish, but Trish barely held on. Stacy was then sent to the apron by Molly and knocked off. Molly then celebrated her win and Trish came from behind to eliminate Molly and Trish has retained her title!
