Retired wrestlers Joyce Grable and Peggy Lee Leather — who were booked by Fabulous Moolah — are speaking out in defense of their ex-boss, claiming she never pimped out talent.
The former female wrestlers were interviewed for a Change.org petition that is attempting to get an apology from Snickers’ parent company for pressuring WWE into changing the name of the upcoming women’s battle royal at WrestleMania 34.
In a video on the page … Joyce Grable questions the authenticity of any claims made by family members of a deceased person and tells the interviewer, “If she was gonna pimp somebody out, I woulda been number one on the list.”
Grable also claims Moolah was against her girls using any drugs.
Former WWF wrestler Peggy Lee was interviewed as well and said, “[Moolah] was nothing but a businesswoman, a shrewd one … a very shrewd one at that … but as far as this pimping, that’s a big bunch of bullsh*t.”
Peggy also says the WWE Hall of Famer is an icon and that she believes it’s not right to take away her legacy because without Moolah’s influence “women’s wrestling wouldn’t be where it’s at now.”
