In 1939, Johnnie Mae Young began her professional wrestling career. Little did we know that career would span eight decades.

Known as "The Great Mae Young," the deceased Hall-of-Famer made sporadic appearances in the 21st century WWE, including when she was notoriously power-bombed through a table by Bubba Ray Dudley at the age of 76.

"There will never be another Mae Young," said Vince McMahon, the chairman and chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment.

In a tribute to Young, the WWE released the video above.
