Sherri had nothing but nice things to say about Moolah in her RF interview. Did she change her tune subsequent to that?
Conversely, and it's been several years since I watched it, but from memory I'm sure Leilani Kai was quite negative about Moolah in her interview with RF. Is she another who's changed her turne?
She wasn't happy with how things played out her last year or so as the Glamour Girls, and blamed Moolah for that. She said Moolah tried to become the manager for the Glamour Girls rather than Jimmy Hart, and then she had them regain the WWF belts from the Jumping Bomb Angels on the last show of a Japan tour when they were supposed to do it at WM4. Then Vince got pissed and cancelled their PPV match. But that's just wrestling business stuff, not even close to what the other handful are claiming. You'd think if she thought any of that had gone on, that'd been a good time to air her dirty laundry.
I never bought this. The match in Japan happened in June of 1988, well after WM 4. I can't imagine them being upset because they couldn't do the blow off at WrestleMania 5, which was about eight months away.
1. The match happened in Japan. They could have easily ignored the title change and the fans wouldn't have been the wiser.
2. JBA vs. Glamour Girls happened infrequently on television after the JBA's won the belts, so fans wouldn't have even missed it.
3. Glamour Girls vs. JBA ran from June '87 to June '88. Sounds like a deal to bring over Tateno and Yamazaki for a year contract with no plans past mid 1988.
4. Leilani Kai didn't wrestle after June 1988 until early 1994 when she came in for Blayze. However, Judy stayed on and worked Rockin Robin for the next year until the women's division was scrapped.
I do believe Moolah probably wanted to be their manager as she was off TV for good after Survivor Series 1987 and likely wasn't getting a booking fee any longer. It's also possible that she called them in Japan and lied to them. But Vince and Pat getting hot over it and scrapping plans? I doubt it.
Thats a very interesting story. Was always a fan of the JBA. The Survivor Series match probably my fav and often wondered how many televised matches these two teams had. I know there is one on one of the Best of WWF tapes.
