Could Molly Holly make an appearance in the 2023 women’s Royal Rumble match? If that is indeed the plan, the WWE Hall of Famer has yet to be notified by anyone that she’ll be needed at next month’s Premium Live Event.
Having been an entrant in the 2018, 2020 and 2022 women’s Rumbles – not to mention being part of a 20-women Battle Royal at Evolution in ’18 – Molly was asked about a possible 2023 outing during a recent K & S WrestleFest virtual signing event.
As picked up on by eWrestlingNews.com, the two-time Women’s Champion explained:
“I told the creative writing team that if I do have to be in it, I need some advance notice because that hurts to go from not doing it for a long time and getting thrown in there. So, they have not given me any notice as of yet, and it’s getting close to that time, so they better tell me soon if I am gonna have to be in it.”
Prior to appearing in those aforementioned Royal Rumble outings, Molly Holly’s last WWE appearance came back at WrestleMania 25 as part of the Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal.
Having initially been with WWE since 2000 – which itself was predated by a stint in WCW – the real-life Nora Greenwald remained with the market leader on a full-time basis until 2005. Opting to step away from the squared circle at that point, Molly made an appearance at the Raw 15th Anniversary show in 2007 before that ‘Mania 25 bout.
These days, Holly serves as a backstage producer for WWE; a role that she has held on a permanent basis since August 2021. Most recently, the former Miss Madness made an appearance on NXT TV as one of the Hall of Famers that Shawn Michaels brought in to help decide which wrestlers would compete in the inaugural Iron Survivor Challenge contests which took place at NXT Deadline earlier this month.
