Baby Doll

Slam Wrestling
One of the most storied support characters in the great group of talent that was Jim Crockett Promotions in the mid-1980s was the "Prefect 10" Baby Doll.

Back in 2010, Brian Elliot wrote and excellent piece for "Slam! Wrestling" on the life and times of one of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling's most fondly remembered personalities. We missed it then, and thought we'd highlight it now.

Most famously, Baby Doll was the manager and valet for Tully Blanchard in 1985 when Jim Crockett Promotions was exploding as a national promotion. She also was paired up at different times with Dusty Rhodes, the Four Horsemen, Larry Zbyszko, and the Warlord.

The article covers her life and career, including her famous wrestling parents.

Since the article was published, Baby Doll has become a "tag team partner" of the Crockett Foundation, "tagging in" and helping out that philanthropic organization with fund raising and awareness.

Thanks to website visitor Jeff Lane for sending us the link to the Baby Doll article.
