Molly Holly made her WWE debut back in 2000 as Lady Ophelia, and she served as a valet for William Regal. In an interview with Chris Hero on Shoot Conversations, Holly discussed who came up with the idea of making her part of the Holly Family in WWE.

When discussing the swap from Lady Ophleia to Molly Holly, she noted that it was Dave Hebner who first mentioned the name to her before learning of the change from Stephanie McMahon (via Fightful):

“Dave Hebner came up to me backstage and said, ‘Molly Holly.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re saying.’ He’s like, ‘Molly Holly, Molly Holly, Molly Holly.’ I don’t know what he’s talking about and he just walked away. I was like, ‘I don’t know what he’s saying.’ Maybe a half an hour later, Stephanie McMahon came up to me and she said, ‘Hey, we’re going to have you be a Holly cousin. You’ve been great with Hardcore and Crash.’ It was Stephanie who explained why Dave Hebner said those two words together.”

Holly was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year.
