• Former WWE Women’s Champion Says She Offered To Get Her Head Shaved To Be On The WrestleMania Card
At WrestleMania XX in 2004, Molly Holly lost a “Hair vs. Title” match to then WWE Women’s Champion Victoria and got her head shaved.
During a recent interview with Ring The Belle, Molly revealed that she gave the idea of getting her head shaved to WWE writers in order to get a chance to be on the WrestleMania match-card.
Below is what Molly said:
“The writers told me that there was only room for one women’s match at WrestleMania. They were going to do a pillow fight or a mud match. I was really devastated and thought I gotta come up with something that makes them change their minds.
So, I put a bald cap on and had my photo taken. I made a booklet with a bunch of different storylines showing my head getting shaved. I presented it to Stephanie McMahon and some of the writers and said, ‘I’m willing to shave my head, can I please be on WrestleMania?’
Sure enough, they came back to me couple days later and said, ‘All right, we’ll let you get your head shaved at WrestleMania.'”
