#1. Mae Young beats LayCool – Old School Raw 2010
November 15th, 2010 was Old School Raw, and it saw WWE history being re-written in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Michelle McCool and Layla were the co-Diva’s Champions, and they faced 77-year-old Mae Young in a 2 on 1 handicap match.
The match was over in 54 seconds and with the help of the entire Raw Womens’ division, a barely walking Young would pick up the victory over the Champions. The feat made Mae the oldest person in WWE history to win a match in the WWE.
The event also saw Mae’s most infamous storyline partner Mark Henry return to his ‘Sexual Chocolate’ gimmick in a losing effort against Dolph Ziggler.
