The WWE Hall of Famer is open to being in her fourth Royal Rumble. 

In the summer of 2021, Molly Holly first opened up about her trial run as a producer for WWE. She is still with the company in that role. 

Earlier this year, Molly competed in the women’s Royal Rumble match and it was her third Rumble. She wrestled in the first in 2018 and in 2020

She was the focus of a K & S WrestleFest virtual signing and shared that she told the creative team to give her advance notice if they want her in the 2023 Rumble. Molly said the least amount of time they’ve given her to prepare is six days. 

I told the creative writing team that if I do have to be in it [2023 women’s Royal Rumble], I need some advance notice because that hurts to go from not doing it for a long time and getting thrown in there so, they have not given me any notice as of yet and it’s getting close to that time. So they better tell me soon if I am gonna have to be in it. 

The least amount of notice they’ve ever given me for a Rumble is six days… I go to the tanning booth, I try not to get too burned, I go buy rub on tan, bleach my teeth, dig through past outfits to see if I can bedazzle them or somehow jazz ‘em up because there’s no way I can find a seamstress in that sort of time and do a lot of crying [Molly laughed]. 

Molly last’s full-time run as an in-ring performer was in 2005. She received a comment from a chat user who said she deserves another run. She appreciated the comment but said she does not want that. 

Thank you [Molly reacted to a comment about deserving another run in WWE]… I do not [want another run].

When asked to list off names she wishes she could have had singles matches with, Molly named Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair who she’s impressed with, Becky Lynch, Bayley, Beth Phoenix and Mickie James. 

Um… I don’t know [who I wish I could’ve had a singles match with]. I’m in awe of Bianca Belair every week. I’m just in awe of her. I also think Becky Lynch is great, Bayley. I never really had a singles match against Beth Phoenix. She did toss me over the top rope at a [Royal] Rumble one year but haven’t actually wrestled her before. Mickie James, I’ve never had a singles match against. It’s hard to say. There are a lot of people that I think it would have been fun to work with.

There have yet to be announcements made for the women’s Royal Rumble field, but Kofi Kingston is scheduled to be in the 2023 men’s Royal Rumble.
