“The Fabulous Moolah: The Facts and The Fiction” Seminar Added

WHAT:  A panel discussion entitled “The Fabulous Moolah:  The Facts and The Fiction” on the legacy of the Fabulous Moolah Lillian Ellison consisting of women who knew and personally worked with her.

WHY:  Moolah has become a lightning rod for criticism in recent months, particularly following WWE’s decision to name the WrestleMania women’s battle royal in her honor (and the subsequent decision to remove Moolah’s name from the match).  Moolah has been called many things –selfish, manipulative, dishonest, a con artist…even a pimp.  Her legacy as a wrestler, trainer and flag-bearer of women’s wrestling for decades has been tarnished by accusations, rumors and innuendos.

This panel discussion will feature women wrestlers who knew Moolah on a personal level or did business with her. It will be an honest discussion of Moolah and the way she did business that will attempt to elucidate and educate, and delve past the rumors to reveal the truth about one of wrestling’s most controversial figures.

Moderator PWI Senior writer Dan Murphy (co-author of Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History and Rise of Women’s Wrestling) will guide the conversation and keep discussion fair and balanced. The objective of the seminar will be to provide an honest conversation without idealizing or damning the subject.

WHEN:  Tuesday May 1, 2018  @ 2 PM 

WHERE:  Gold Coast Hotel and Casino,  Las Vegas, NV,  Salon D

WHO:

Dan Murphy (Moderator)

*Seminar coordinator Ron Hutchison would like to personally thank Dan Murphy co-author of Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History and Rise of Women’s Wrestling for acting on such short notice and facilitating this fantastic line-up of panelists with, potentially, more to come.  On behalf of the CAC Ron would also like to extend our sincerest appreciation to all of the panelists as well for agreeing to speak from the heart on a subject, which for some, maybe  extremely difficult. Our heartfelt appreciation to you all.

  1. Ann Casey Says…I have said it before, and I will say it again, and again, if need be…!
    UNLESS a person was a “Con-Joined Twin” to Moolah, and was awake, when Moolah was awake, and asleep when Moolah was asleep, then how might ANYONE say for sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what Moolah did, or did NOT do, or what Moolah said, or did NOT say….!
    I lived with Moolah in BOTH her homes, off & on from 1962, to 1970, I ate at Moolah’s table, I traveled with Moolah, I worked with Moolah, I knew Moolah about as well as the next person…! I was a first-hand witness…both via eyes & ears to the life Moolah lived…!!! I came back to Moolahs’s in 1975, I defeated Moolah for the ORIGINAL U.S.Belt, that such greats as Mildred Burke, June Byers, and Moolah owned…! Thank you Ann Casey Retired U.S Champion Woman Wrestler 1962-1992
