That being said, Mae Young giving birth to what many presume was some sort of malformed hand; fits into the timeline as being closer to a “WTF? Moment” than anything else.
Unlike many of the moments, I’ve compiled on this blog over the past several months, this was one that I actually got to see when it aired.
At the time, The Fabulous Moolah and her associate, Mae Young; a pair of female wrestlers from the 40’s and 50’s, had begun appearing in WWF storylines with surprising degree of regularity.
Much like seemingly every network sitcom every made, Moolah and Mae Young were cast as “hip” old ladies.
Moolah took on the role of the straight woman, while Mae was her perverted sidekick with a dirty mind.
On numerous occasions, Mae made passes at a number of the WWF wrestling crew; and even took it upon herself to crash a bikini expo at the Royal Rumble, taking off her top in the middle of the ring.
It was spectacle I would like to say I didn’t witness on live pay-per-view, but unfortunately; I did… And it wasn’t pretty.
Anyway, “The Hand Birthing” scene came as a result of a storyline involving Mae Young’s romantic affiliation with Mark Henry AKA Sexual Chocolate.
I honestly don’t remember how the relationship came about, but the point; in the storyline the 400 lbs. Mark Henry was supposedly fucking the very old, and very frail Mae Young.
Somehow, some way, this resulted in Ms. Young not breaking her hip or being snapped in half; but in becoming pregnant with Mark Henry’s chocolate love child.
After they milked the storyline for all it was worth, the whole thing came to a head when Mae Young was rushed backstage to delivery the “baby.”
Dirty whore that she was, I’ll never forget when Mae called a halt to the delivery process, demanding to light up one of the biggest cigars I’ve ever seen in my life.
Anyway, as you probably saw in the clip above; Mae Young ultimately gave birth to a rubber hand slathered in pink goo.
It was dumb, it was more than a little weird; but it was a product of a time when I could still proudly say I watched wrestling every week.
Considering how God awful wrestling has been in the past few years, I’d give a lot to go back to the days of Mae Young pooping out rubber hands.
