In a surprising move from WWE, they have renamed the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royale and it will now be known as the Wrestlemania Women's Battle Royale. Along with flooding the comment portion on Twitter when the announcement was made, fans also made their voice heard on the YouTube page as well. While Moolah is a WWE and NWA Hall of Famer and NWA Hall of Famer, as well as a four-time WWE Women's Champion and a five-time NWA Women's Champion, her controversial past it being brought to the forefront. While she's noted for standing the test of time and remaining in the spotlight, even into the late '90s, she's also been accused of pimping out the young women she trained, stealing money from other wrestlers, racism, and having a stranglehold on booking, among other things. Luna Vachon, Wendi Richter, Leilani Kai and others have discussed Moolah's checkered past, with several of the allegations being denied by Moolah.

Local Winn Dixie and Harvey stores' closing date announced
There are about 20 Winn Dixie locations in the Jacksonville area and at least 2 Winn Dixie stores are expected to close . The Florida-based company said it's implementing "a court-supervised, prepackaged" debt restructuring agreement.

Earlier this week, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet spoke with former WWF wrestler Jeannine Mjoseth (aka Mad Maxine), who did not have anything positive to say about her one-time trainer. Since then, the video honoring Moolah for the battle royal has been removed. "Moolah didn't have a good bone in her body". Brown was Moolah's first black student, and her family implied that Moolah and her common-law husband, Buddy Lee, would exploit her physically and financially.

There has definitely been a mix of excitement and sadness thinking about how this is going to be my final NCAA Tournament . It also didn't help that Kansas , Duke , and Michigan State were all placed in the same region this year.

Moolah would allegedly pimp out her female wrestling trainees as prostitutes, expecting them to perform at a moment's notice, sometimes with just a knock on the door as warning. Additionally, it appears the name change happened after an official sponsor for WrestleMania 34 called naming the battle royal after Fabulous Moolah "unacceptable".

Tom Crean to become next head coach at Georgia
That stretch was highlighted by a No. 1 seed in the 2013 NCAA Tournament and a Big Ten Coach of the Year for Crean in 2016. Crean served as head coach at Marquette from 1999-2008, leading the program to the 2003 Final Four and four more NCAA bids.

Another reason for the change was also due probably due to pressure from corporate sponsors after fans started notifying the candy company, Snickers, which is a sponsor for WrestleMania about the controversy. We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment.
