Molly Holly Recalls Who Came Up With Her Name In WWE

Molly Holly came into WWE as Lady Ophelia as a valet for William Regal.

It wasn't long before she joined Bob & Crash Holly on-screen as their "cousin." The name stuck and Molly was off on the best run of her career.

Speaking to Chris Hero on Shoot Conversations, Molly recalled learning of her new name.

"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," she said.

Molly would go on to become a two-time WWE Women's Champion. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021.

Elsewhere during the conversation, Molly recalled pitching to have her head shaved at WrestleMania 20. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
