Molly Holly Reveals Where Her WWE Name Came From
Before she was Mighty she was Hardcore and Crash’s cousin
Molly Holly has had many monikers throughout her wrestling career. From Miss Madness through to Mighty Molly, but the one that always reared its head was that of Molly Holly, cousin to Hardcore and Crash Holly.
Originally brought into WWE as William Regal’s valet Lady Ophelia, it was the pairing with Hardcore and Crash that got Molly over, and in conversation with Chris Hero on Shoot Conversations, Molly revealed how she found out about her now legendary moniker:
"Dave Hebner came up to me backstage and said, 'Molly Holly.' I was like, 'I don't know what you're saying.' He's like, 'Molly Holly, Molly Holly, Molly Holly.' I don't know what he's talking about and he just walked away. I was like, 'I don't know what he's saying.' Maybe a half an hour later, Stephanie McMahon came up to me and she said, 'Hey, we're going to have you be a Holly cousin. You've been great with Hardcore and Crash.' It was Stephanie who explained why Dave Hebner said those two words together."
