The latest on Mae Young's condition...
UPDATE 3: According to a new report on the condition of WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young, she is currently off life support but still said to be in weak physical condition.
When one of her friends in Oklahoma called her, she wasn't strong enough to speak, but she was able to listen. When her friend told her, "you know thousands of people are pulling for you," Young weakly replied, "I know."
As of noon on Thursday (Jan. 9), Young's condition has not yet changed from her last reported condition on Wednesday.
As of noon on Thursday, Young's condition had yet to change from that of which was reported late Wednesday night.
ORIGINAL: Following the news from last night that she was taken off of life support, Mike Mooneyham of the Post and Courier reports that Mae Young died early this morning at her Columbia home at the age of 90. Young broke into the wrestling business back in 1939 when she was 15, and was the first-ever NWA U.S. women's champion.
On behalf of 411, I would like to offer our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mae Young.
