>> Nora Greenwald (a.k.a. former WWE Diva "Molly Holly") will be participating in a Polar Bear Plunge this Saturday to help raise money for the Special Olympics of Minnesota. Greenwald will be jumping into the freezing waters of White Bear Lake, Minn., at noon with others. SLAM! Wrestling has an article on Greenwald and her gracious endeavor. "I had heard of the Polar Bear Plunge, but I always thought those people were crazy," Greenwald said. "Then I read the book The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom and I realized I live a life of comfort, so why not be uncomfortable for a good cause."
Greenwald will be wearing a special costume she made when she jumps in White Bear Lake. "I did...spend some time putting a costume together. I will be 'Supergirl'," Greenwald said. "Hmmm, I guess kind of like a Mighty Molly."
Though she does not follow WWE or TNA today on a regular basis, Greenwald said today's women's wrestlers have picked up the torch her fellow alumnae left behind. "I actually do not have a TV, but I did go to a RAW houseshow in Rochester, Minnesota. Beth Phoenix and Melina were amazing," Greenwald said. "They have taken women's wresting to the next level."
While Greenwald doesn't mind making one-off wrestling-related appearances every now and then, a possible return to squared circle doesn't appear to be in the cards. Greenwald prefers life away from the road to instead focus on her career working with organizations dedicated to helping kids. "I have actually had a few offers for a few different things," Greenwald said. "I like doing one-shot cameos, but I think my full-time life on the road will remain in the past. I love working as a bus-aide on a special needs bus for the school district, and working in addiction recovery at Teen Challenge."
>> As noted earlier, released WWE star Hardcore Holly turned 46 years old today. From what I am being told, many independent promoters are having a hard time getting a hold of him as he was not the most popular guy in WWE. He's also been known to work extremely stiff which turns a lot of people off.
