Pittsburgh had Ringside Rosie, the old lady who let the heels have it.  There was Hatpin Mary, the old twins from Kansas City and that old lady in Madison Square Garden ho even Vince Jr talks about as she swipes the salt off the ring corner after Mr Fuji does his pre match ritual.

Do you guys remember any other crazy old ladies who became famous at wrestling matches?  Even though kayfabe is gone why don't we see them today outside the obvious its geare toward boys 23-30 years old.

My step-grandmother, who I wouldn't deem crazy, in fact she was pretty with it, treated wrestling as real when it was on the tv. She'd get real mad and cuss at the TV when heels did "heelish" things... I tried never to watch wrestling with her because it was too much for me, but there were 3 or 4 occasions where I'd visit and Raw or whatever would happen to be on the TV. She passed away a few years back, but up until she got sick with cancer she never missed wrestling and always screamed and yelled at the TV set...

I've also seen some monthly "old crazies" at the local indies back when I used to go to them. Thing is now, you don't have a televised promotion (that has real fans, TNA doesn't count) that runs the same venue weekly or monthly and airs on TV, so we don't get to see that they still exist.

So I'd say they still exist, they're just not exposed to us as much these days.

I remember in the 80s there was an old lady in Erie who would sit at ringside and really get into the matches. I remember once Tito Santana was battling Greg Valentine when the battle spilled out into ringside. Valentine was on the apron kicking Santana on the floor when this old lady came up and punched Valentine on the lag.

Another time, the same old lady was giving yelling at Skinner the whole match while he battled Jim Brunzell. Skinner was yelling back at her the whole match too, and I assume they decided to work her into the finish. Skinner put Brunzell into a chinlock and leans into him, pretty obviously telling him something. Next thing you know, Skinner is arguing with the old lady again, when Brunzell school-boys him from behind for 3 to win.

She was at a lot of the shows at the Erie Civic Center, but those are the two incidents I remember her really getting into the action the most.

There was this lady in Los Angeles that always had a rubber chicken at ringside.

I remember watching a clip on The George Michaels Sports Machine featuring a match between Cowboy Bob Orton and Tony Garea. A little old lady in the front row at MSG was yelling and screaming at Orton the entire match and Orton was giving it right back to her. For the finish, Orton is behind Garea, pushes Garea into the ropes, rolls Garea up backwards, and moons the little old lady (while pointing at her) by pulling Garea's trunks down during the pin.

I saw a few shows in Alabama, and one one show in Jasper (VERY rural area) Had an old lady who screamed "yer momma's a DAWG!!" at Dirty White Boy for the entire match.

I remember another in Biloxi screaming "SKULL DRAG HIS ASS!!" all night, too.

Crazy old women were responsible for some of my favorite memories of going to wrestling matches.

I had one damn near beat my arm to death once.

Rufus R Jones was wrestling Jake the Snake,and when Rufus made his big comeback everytime he would hit Roberts she would smack me on the arm "Hit him Rufus!!" bam "Hit him Rufus!" bam after about 5 shots she realized what she was doing and apologized quite profusely,but I laughed it off and told her it was okay.

I also saw a woman attack Ivan Koloff,she just swung her purse like a giant sling and got him a good one upside the head,Ivan shrugged it off,but the cops gave her a firm scolding but didn't eject her.

When we'd watch wrestling, both of my grandparents would stomp the floor when there'd be punching. Hilarious. They both went to their graves thinking it was real.:D

My grandmother was one.  She threw a chair at "Pretty Boy" Bobby Heenan as he was called then.  She was escorted out.

So was mine. She used to verbally lay in to Jerry Lawler back in the 70's when he was a heel. She'd sit ringside at the Mid South Coliseum and would call him everything but a child of God.

When I was going with her to the matches in the 80's and 90's, she was still going strong and she was in her 70's and 80's at the time. She would, yell, scream , curse. She was more enertaining than the action in the ring sometimes.

My grandmother (RIP) was verbally pretty bitchy, but I never knew her to throw a chair at anyone besides Heenan.

The old lady at MSG was Georgette Kreiger. She lived in Baltimore and took the bus up to NYC with her sister for every Garden card. When they got to the city they would eat lunch, go to mass at St. Francis of Assisi which was right across the street from the Garden, and then off to the matches. The New York Daily News did a full page article on her. She is also mentioned on that "famous" WWWF TV taping from 1965 with Ray Morgan that has been in the tape trading circuit for years. Nobody played better foils to her than Tanaka and Steele.
