Vivian St. John Passes Away + NJPW’s WrestleKingdom
– Vivian St. John, who wrestled in the 70s and 80s as part of the Fabulous Moolah’s stable of women’s wrestlers, passed away today. She had been ill for some time. St. John was a babyface, working different territories for Moolah and regularly teaming with Susan Green as a cowgirl tag team. She wrestled for about 12 years in different promotions before stepping out of the ring in the late 1980s.
On behalf of everyone here on the website, I would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends and family of Ms. St. John.
