  • 8 - Abbey Laith is released from WWE NXT.
  • 14 - The WWE renames the Fabulous Moolah Memorial Women's Battle Royal, to take place at WrestleMania 34, to the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal after allegations surface about Moolah's past, including her monopolization of women's wrestling in North America (prior to the late 1980s), taking other wrestler's pay, sexual exploitation of women she was training and mentoring, her legitimacy in training female wrestlers and her own wrestling style. After a Change.org petition quickly gathered 10,000 signatures demanding the change and a statement from snack food giant Snickers (primary sponsor of WrestleMania 34) strongly condemning the WWE's decision to honor Moolah in light of the allegations, the WWE agreed to remove Moolah from the match name.
