    Per Meltzer:

    WWE.com reported today the passing of Lillian Ellision, the Fabulous Moolah, who dominated women's wrestling from the late 50s into the early 80s as booker, world champion and most famous woman wrestler of her time.

    Moolah passed way in her home in Columbia, SC, last night at the age of 84.

    One of the classic wrestling names.

    A tough old broad who learned to protect her interests in a nasty, rotten business.

    A true legend. The longest-reigning champion in the sport's history, and she worked well into her 80s IN THE RING. My dad and I always remember one of those wrestling fan mags with a headline reading "The Fabulous Moolah: Will she reign forever?" Sadly, no.

    RIP Lillian Ellison.

    It was the beginning of the end of the WWF's old spirit when they had Moolah lose the title to Wendy Richter. Moolah and Anne Carvello will be raising some hell in heaven. RIP.

    Will her death FINALLY keep McMahon from trotting her out in those stupid skits?

    I'm not sure, but I hope so...

    You clearly underestimate the power of The Cream and The Clear.

    Never heard of her.

    But I'm stunned -- stunned -- to hear she's gone now.

    I do remember Man Mountain Mike, though, and the great Dory Funk Jr. ::)

    Don't underestimate the power of the Casket Match against the Undertaker.
