Mae Young Died

The pioneer female wrestler, Johnnie Mae Young, died at the ripe age of 90 on Tuesday, January 14th. She celebrated her 90th birthday live on a Monday Night Raw with WWE Superstars and fans in March of 2013.

Mae Young was ill due to an unspecified illness. She passed away at her home in Columbia, South Carolina. She was a prominent World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame member. She is one of the true divas of WWE.

"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."

Mae Young started her sports career as a wrestler in 1939. And her wrestling career continued for an unprecedented eight decades. Now, that is a very long time.

Young has not only achieved many titles in the ring, but she also became a trainer. She trained many female wrestlers including WWE Hall of Famer, The Fabulous Moolah.

Actually, Young's debut entry in the WWF took place in 1999 in the capacity of The Fabulous Moolah trainee. The pair appeared both on the WWF and the WWE. Mae Young was added in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. She was the third woman who was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

"The entire WWE Universe offers a standing ovation to a true queen of the canvas and bids Mae Young a heartfelt farewell."

WWE staff and stars went to twitter to express their feelings on the death of Mae Young.
