Book Overview

Lillian Ellison, known in the ring as the Fabulous Moolah, is one of wrestling's pioneering veterans and heroines, both in and out of the squared circle. When wrestling first caught the attention of the public, Moolah had a ringside seat. Appearing on the scene in 1949 as a "valet" for some male wrestlers, she was introduced to the crowd as a "slave girl" dressed in revealing leopardskin. But the woman who got into the business for the "moolah"...

A WONDERFUL BOOK ABOUT A WONDERFUL STAR!

Lillian Ellison (aka "The Fabulous Moolah") made it in spite of a motherless upbringing amidst twelve brothers and a dazed father. She deserves all the credit in the world, not only for succeeding, but for championing a segment of the wrestling business not generally accepted when she entered it. Women's wrestling has always smacked of "carny", as does its male pantomime counterpart. This Lady made it (sans drugs, cocaine, pot or steroids!) with dignity, self-confidence, and very little to eat in her early mat years. That she last won her title back at the age of 76 is nothing short of astounding. A lot of people can't even walk at that age. Her life - and how she lived it - make for great reading, but I'm sure even greater living. Now that it's over and completed, and the final chapter has been written, we can truly realize that Lillian Ellison - The Fabulous Moolah - was, indeed, FABULOUS, in every sense of the word.

OLD SCHOOL OF WRESTLING

THIS BOOK IS ABOUT THE LIFE AND WRESTLING CAREER OF LILLIAN ELLISON AKA(FABULOUS MOOLAH). IT IS INTERESTING AND ENTERTAINING IN MOST PARTS. SHE SPENDS ALOT OF TIME TELLING US HOW GREAT THE MCMAHON FAMILY IS (WHY NOT, THEY ARE HER EMPLOYER)BUT NOT ENOUGH TIME ABOUT BEHIND THE SCENES. SHE ALSO MAKES US BELIEVE THAT SHE GAVE EVERYONE WHO WRESTLED HER THE BEATING OF THEIR LIFE. I THINK ALOT OF THIS BOOK HAS BEEN EXAGGERATED BY MOOLAH. BUT YET I LIKED IT. NOTHING GREAT BUT STILL AN OK READ.
