Vince McMahon Issues Statement On Mae Young, Remembering A Heartwarming Moment, Video Tributes

The wrestling world is grieving the loss of Mae Young as the legendary female wrestler died Tuesday at the age of 90. After WWE confirmed the news on dot com, Vince McMahon issued the following statement:

“There will never be another Mae Young,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. “Her longevity in sports entertainment may never be matched, and I will forever be grateful for all of her contributions to the industry. On behalf of WWE, I extend our sincerest condolences to her family and friends.”

There was a heartwarming moment backstage at the March 4, 2013 “Old School” episode of Monday Night Raw where Vince and Triple H presented Mae Young with a Divas Championship belt that Stephanie McMahon had made for her in honor of her 90th birthday. You could really tell how much Mae meant to Vince and the moment revealed a rare softer side of the WWE boss. You can watch the moment at this link or embedded in the video below:

WWE posted the following video tributes that I would expect to make it to television:
