Although not really a wrestler, Miss Elizabeth had a big impact on female wrestling.
Just check around with some of the female wrestlers of today, and you'll see that she was a role model for a lot of them.
Elizabeth Ann Hulette was born on November 19, 1960 in Frankfort, Kentucky.
While she was working for International Championship Wrestling, an independent professional wrestling promotion based in Lexington, Kentucky, she met Randall Poffo, better known now as "Macho Man" Randy Savage.(ICW was run by the father of Macho Man, Angelo Poffo)
The two married on December 30, 1984, and Randy went to work for the WWF soon after.
On the August 24, 1985, edition of WWF Prime Time Wrestling, Miss Elizabeth officially debuted as the manager of the Macho Man.
She became integral to the story lines with Randy, but she always maintained a sense of style and class.
Even when she once ripped off her skirt to revel a red bikini bottom that distracted André the Giant and Ted DiBiase, allowing Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man to win a match at the very first SummerSlam.
Except for a few small catfights with the late Sherri Martel, Elizabeth didn't do much in the ring except advance the story lines in the WWF.
In the WCW however, Elizabeth wrestled in her first official match against Daffney on May 8, 2000.
After that, she competed in a few matches against Rhonda Singh and Madusa.
On August 17, 2000, WCW released Elizabeth from her contract.
Miss Elizabeth passed away on May 1, 2003.
Besides Randy Savage, she managed Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Sting, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair and Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake.
The WWE has a nice Alumni page about Elizabeth here:
