    - Its been claimed Richter was paid peanuts compared to a lot of people even though she was on MTV and got on a cartoon with Hogan. Richter asked for more money and Vince got pissed at this.


    - Richter years later in a shoot claimed she was due money and the WWF would keep being late to pay her. So she asked Vince to pay her what was due and he got mad. That maybe he thought where she was a woman she should be happy to even get paid.



    Anyhow at a MSG show in 1985 , Richter faced a mysterious masked woman and rolled her up and the referee did a fast 3 count. It was a scum bag deal basically to do as her , McMahon and referee were in on that finish.

    A few mainsteam outlets are picking up on it and giving the company negative PR. Theres' the aforementioned Forbes article and Newsweek directly asked the company for comment on the matter and didn't respond.

    Moolah has been known to take a cut out of the female performers pay. That's likely what happened to Richter.

    Glad some publications are putting the truth out there. Isn't the only reason her and Mae still up is because Stephanie is big fans of the two of them? Either way hopefully they change it to someone who was not scumming other wrestlers.

    Personally anyone would be better than what they have it named after now. I doubt it changes though , it would have to be a big public article that the WWE would get negative impacted by to force that. Like if Deadspin and other media picked up on it.....you'd see Vince change it asap.

    Could make it a 3 way with Jinder... though there perhaps seems a few too many potential 3 triple threats at WM.

    I'd say that the ones in bold will likely be on pre-show. I'm sure we get an hour of pre-show and we will likely in a 5 hour format get 11-12 matches for the main card.

    Weird seeing AJ and Nakamura open a show for WWE for the championship at Wrestlemania. Awesome for both of them especially AJ worked all of the globe and getting rewarded for all that work.

    More than anything, I think they just want to give everyone something to do at WrestleMania. Even if it's just a battle royal on the pre-show, I'll bet to a lot of talent that's a big deal.
