WWE Announcement On The Women’s Battle Royal At WrestleMania 34

As noted, WWE announced today that they are changing the name from the first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 due to fan backlash over Moolah’s controversial past. The new name for the match is the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.

The WWE website has finally updated the match listing to reflect the changes. WWE also deleted the YouTube video for the match but they have not revealed a new promo yet.

Below is how the original match announcement read:

The first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal to take place at WrestleMania

The Superstars of Raw, SmackDown and WWE NXT’s Women’s divisions will have the chance to make history yet again when they compete in the inaugural Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34.

As first announced on Raw, this ground-breaking battle royal will pay tribute to the first-ever WWE Women’s Champion, The Fabulous Moolah, who not only paved the way for female competitors through the years, but also played a pivotal role in the first several WrestleMania events.

In the highly-anticipated free-for-all, members of the Women’s divisions from Raw, SmackDown LIVE and WWE NXT will compete to be the last Superstar standing in the over-the-top-rope melee.
