The WWE Hall of Famer is very sick, but despite reports to the contrary, she has not passed away.

Mae Young is incredibly ill and on her death bed. Two different outlets reported that the 90-year-old had died, but the wrestling legend is still alive and battling her serious illness. UPDATE: WWE confirmed Mae passed away on Jan. 14 at the age of 90.

Mae Young Incredibly Ill & On Deathbed

The WWE star was a pioneer in her industry, and at 77, she was crowned “Miss Royal Rumble” She is the third woman to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The S.C. Post and Courier falsely reported that she had been taken off life support and passed away, but they later corrected their mistake.

The WWE Hall of Fame wrestler had her first match in 1939 and has been hospitalized since Dec. 2013.

WWE Star Meets With Dying Child

She was known as The Amazing Mae Young, and started wrestling at 15!

Mae was born, Johnnie Mae Young, in Sand Spring, Okla., and it was her brothers who taught her how to wrestle.

In 1991 she quit wrestling and moved to California to reportedly spread God’s word as a Christian evangelist. Later that year she quit that and moved in with former female wrestler, The Fabulous Moolah, who died in 2007.

Mae was featured in the film Lipstick & Dynamite and was the first National Wrestling Alliance’s U.S. Women’s champion.

This is so sad, we hope she is surrounded by family and friends.
