Victoria recently said in an interview that she took the idea for her Widow’s Peak from an NXT Superstar when he was just 16. She didn’t reveal the name of that NXT Superstar, but we know who she took that move from now.

During a January 2019 interview with Ring the Belle, Molly Holly and Victoria revealed the story about how the Widow’s Peak came about.

Molly Holly admitted that she used to watch indie tapes to steal wrestling moves. She took the move from Roderick Strong who she “wrestled in the backyard of a trailer park in Florida. He was 14, I was 18, or so.”

Holly said that Victoria needed a new finisher, and she had a great one to suggest. She also revealed that Vince McMahon was ringside speaking with people when she demonstrated the finisher. Vince McMahon reacted by going: “OH!” They knew that if McMahon reacted that way then Victoria had a good finisher.


You can check out the interview below where they reveal this story. Molly Holly tells all about the stolen move from Roderick Strong at around the 4:30 mark in the video.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
