Nora Greenwald is Still Mighty

Nora Greenwald's pro wrestling career wasn't too long, but it was very successful. Even better, Greenwald left on her own terms and is enjoying her post-wrestling life.
I always liked Greenwald, right from her debut in the WCW as Miss Madness, a member of Randy Savage's crew. Greenwald went onto bigger fame in the WWE as Mighty Molly Holly. Since leaving the WWE in 2005, she has made sporadic apprearances for them and other independent wrestling groups, although mostly not as an in-ring performer.
We talked to Greenwald earlier this year at the Motor City Comic Con. She said she was happy to see some of her old wrestling friends there, like Amy (Lita) Dumas and Lilian Garcia.
Greenwald is working for a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in her native Minnesota. She finds that work so fulfilling. While she sometimes misses the people and fans from wrestling, she doesn't miss the bumps and daily grind of wrestling. She also recently got engaged.
Wrestling misses her more than she misses it. Too bad she wasn't treated better during her time. She was stuck in some silly stories, but she was always professional. She performed at a high level and gave a great show every time. It's great to see her doing so well now.
