What you loved:

  1. In-Ring - Solid worker, could have a good match with anyone, and, oh yeah, Molly Go Round!
  2. Molly Holly - She was adorably cute and spunky, and had a great storyline with Crash and Hardcore.
  3. Cute - Right...I just said that, she was cute!
  4. Spike Dudley - After Macho and Elizabeth, there was Spike and Molly.
  5. Head Shaved - Would you do this for your job?

Best comment comes via The Unmasked Superstar:

"Molly more than held her own when WWE actually had a deep talent roster on the women’s side. She was a gifted performer in and out of the ring, moving seamlessly through a variety of gimmicks. And though I’m loathe to rate wrestlers on appearance, I can’t help but note that she was also just way too cute…Renee Young cute."


What you loathed:

  1. Storyline - She had a "prude" and "big butt" storyline, both were 100% garbage, and she deserved better.
  2. Under-appreciated - During the Golden Era of the women's division, Trish Stratus and Lita took a majority of the spotlight, leaving Molly out in the cold most of the time.
  3. Diva Era - Then came along this "wonderful" era that she unfortunately did not fit into.
  4. Hurricane Helms - Molly should never be anyone's sidekick, especially Hurricane Helms.
  5. Mic - Not terrible, but never really known for her promo work.

Best comment comes via MrErikJ:

"She couldn’t get over enough because the Attitude era was especially big on trash TV sexploitation. Lita, Trish, Sable, Miss Kitty, Torrie Wilson…they all had the 90s artificially enhanced Pam Anderson look that was so big at the time. Looking back, some of those women are pretty cartoonish looking. Molly was the real deal, in every way. True wrestling skill, an honest love of the business, and a non-enhanced body. But, that meant she couldn’t be used in a bra and panties match or whatever Misogyny on a Pole bullshit was going on that week. I think people liked Molly, but she never got the push to be their lead female wrestler, probably because she wouldn’t play the game. Which is too bad. We don’t have very many Molly’s to provide that positive example of. Not all female wrestlers have to be exploited and objectified."

On to the poll! With 159 votes, Molly Holly's average score is 3.8

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick loves suplexes.

Until then!
