Molly Holly was a guest on “Ring the Belle” recently. During the interview, she discussed how much she had to beg the WWE to let her shave her head at Wrestlemania XX, who she stole the “Widow’s Peak” finisher from & more. Here are the highlights:
On Who She Stole The Widow’s Peak From:
I used to watch indie tapes to steal moves from people. Sorry! So, I stole [Widow’s Peak] from Roderick Strong, whom I used to wrestle with in the back yard of a trailer park in Florida. He was 14 and I was 18. He had a really cool move.
Victoria was looking for a new finisher, and I showed it to her in the ring with Vince McMahon. He saw her practice it on me, and Vince McMahon went, ‘Oh!’ And I thought if we can get Vince to react that way we know it’s a good one.
On Wrestlemania XX:
I was a champion, and the writers told me that there was only room for one women’s match at WrestleMania. They were going to do a pillow fight or a mud match. I was really devastated and thought I gotta come up with something that makes them change their minds.
So, I put a bald cap on and had my photo taken. I made a booklet with a bunch of different storylines showing my head getting shaved. I presented it to Stephanie McMahon and some of the writers and said, ‘I’m willing to shave my head, can I please be on WrestleMania?’ Sure enough, they came back to me couple days later and said, ‘All right, we’ll let you get your head shaved at WrestleMania.
On Being Grateful To Wrestle At WWE Evolution:
Anytime I get to see someone I used to work with, of course, you’ve got these – I hate to say it – like, trauma bonds. We’ve gone through this like extreme situation together and so for life, you’re like molded as a friendship.
