If you are a longtime wrestling fan, then you may be familiar with the legacy of The Spider Lady.
After WrestleMania 1, Wendi Richter went out to the ring to defend her Women's Championship against a mysterious opponent known as The Spider Lady.
What would follow would be an early precursor to the Montreal Screwjob.
Under the mask was The Fabulous Moolah and the Women's Championship was swiftly taken away from the Rock N' Wrestling standout. This incident was featured on VICELAND's Dark Side Of The Ring documentary series.
Now, almost three decades later, MLW looks to launch its Women's Division by pitting Zeda Zhang against a new Spider Lady on November 9 in Orlando, Florida.
MLW issued the following:
