Trish was excited to learn the news about her friend and former rival.
"Nora is one of the very best in this business! I had the privilege of working with her at the beginning of my career; she helped shape my foundation of who I became in the ring. She is one of the most giving workers I've ever worked with, and she's done so much for this business. I'm happy to see her get the recognition she so deserves finally!"
Holly gained exposure in WCW, where she also trained the women before jumping to WWE in 2000. She was signed to work with Trish as the company was seeking in-ring workers to build the newly resurrected women's division. She was introduced as the cousin of Hardcore and Crash, who was in a storyline with Trish and T&A. They would compete in a 6-person tag team match at Survivor Series. In the weeks leading up to the PPV, Trish and Molly had singles matches that helped bring legitimacy and credibility to the women’s division with innovative matches to engage crowd reactions.
