WWE Hall of Fame star Mae Young has been hospitalized over the New Year. According to PWInsider.com on Dec. 31, the 90-year-old legend is not doing well health-wise.

Most fans of the WWE today know Mae Young as the elderly former female wrestler who makes random appearances on "WWE Monday Night Raw," normally in rambunctious comic appearances with either other Divas or various male wrestlers.

Mae Young began her wrestling career after an amateur wrestling career where she competed on her school's boy's wrestling team. She left home two years after graduating high school and became a professional wrestler. She worked for Stu Hart in Canada early in her career and later was one of the top female wrestling stars during World War II when many of the young male athletes were fighting in the war.

She also became an instructor and one of her best students was future world champion The Fabulous Moolah.

She returned to the public spotlight in 1999 when she showed up in the WWE at the age of 76 with The Fabulous Moolah. The two began to appear as a duo, where they would either get attacked or embarrass other wrestlers. During this time, Mae Young was involved in an embarrassing angle with "Sexual Chocolate" Mark Henry.

In 2007, The Fabulous Moolah passed away and in 2008, Mae Young was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Mae Young appeared as recently as March 2013 on "WWE Monday Night Raw."
