YMMV: Molly Holly
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Even as a heel, she had a strong online fanbase. For a time on the Usenet newsgroup rec.sport.pro-wrestling, she was featured in several .sigs, with her being referred to as "Angel Molly Holly" and "Queen Molly, the First Lady of Wrestling." When she and Trish tied for diva of the year on the now defunct radical wrestling site, the webmaster decided to overrule the vote and declare Molly Holly the winner. (for the record, he left the tie between The Dudley Boys and The World's Greatest Tag Team alone)
  • Fandom Rivalry: For a stretch, Youtube was the battle ground of a perplexing one between her fans and fans of Malia Hosakanote . Par the course for youtube, the Malia side got overtaken by pranksters, who blew Molly's ties to a rehab scam out of proportion (by omitting that she worked there three months at most without pay and then left) and the wrestling debate got drowned in a sea of a lot of other noise. (the lesson was don't look for wrestling on youtube though as more wrestling companies took to promoting themselves with it, that became less plausible. Just be wary of the comment sections)
  • Hollywood Homely: Played with. She purposefully altered her appearance so that she would be plain and unattractive to reflect the new heel character, although she still was attractive, just not blatant about it.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: One of the most infamous examples. One segment was written where Trish Stratus made fun of her ass and this eventually evolved into the entire locker room poking fun at her weight. Unlike Mickie James, she wasn't portrayed sympathetically. The worst part is that the fans didn't buy it at all - Molly was slim and athletic by any definition, and anyone with even a passing knowledge of fitness and human musculature could tell that any extra size on Molly's lower body was mostly muscle. Fans were already of the "pay money to see Molly lose" mindset anyway, so the whole exercise was superfluous.
    • This hounded her long before WWE used it on-screen. Even when she had first debuted in late 2000, reports from dirt-sheets claimed that WWE wanted her to lose weight. This is pure speculation as Molly herself has never said that she was directly asked to.
  • The Woobie: For two of the three above reasons.
