Roderick Strong: Molly Holly Helped Me To Become What I Am In Wrestling

We've heard of WWE Hall of Famer Molly Holly helping a plethora of female wrestling talent, but it didn't stop there.

Many might not associate Roderick Strong with training to be a pro wrestler when WCW was around, but he was. In fact, during that time, he had been working with a pre-famous Molly Holly. Despite Molly's move to WCW and WWE, Strong said she never changed.

"She was the best. After she moved on and was in WCW and wasn't training with us, she was always like, 'send me tapes because I'm around the best wrestlers in the world that do this and I can help you as much as I can.' That she did. Every tape I sent to her, she responded back to me with footwork, just focusing on my footwork. Every day, that was my focus. She helped me a lot to become who I have in this business, just with her kindness. She's like the nicest person in the world, so I wouldn't expect anything less," Strong said.

20 years later, Victoria told Fightful that it was Molly Holly who actually suggested she use the Widow's Peak after seeing a teenage Roderick Strong use the move.
