When Mr. McMahon was turning WWE into a national powerhouse in the early ’80s, Wendi Richter was one of his shining stars. With her natural charisma and rock star looks, the sexy Texan was the female answer to Hulk Hogan and had the following to prove it. This popularity was on full display in 1984 when she defeated The Fabulous Moolah live on MTV for the Women’s Title, ending Moolah’s 28-year reign as champion and drawing one of the largest ratings in cable television history. Richter parted ways with WWE in 1988, but her stellar achievements would be matched by few.
