  • Mike Aldren wrote (On July 21, 2010): Former WWE diva Molly Holly (Nora Greenwald, 32) is getting married later this month in her hometown of White Bear Lake, MN. She met her future husband, Geno Benshoof, just over a year ago while working at a Minneapolis drug and alcohol recovery program. Benshoof is a recovering drug addict and former dealer. “I never wanted to waste my time, so I have been waiting for “the one” and when you know, you know,” Greenwald told The White Bear Press. “I’m a 32-year-old virgin that doesn’t care to be a 33-year-old virgin… A short engagement was most desirable.” Benshoof noted he was never really a fan of pro wrestling. “I really didn’t know anything about (wrestling),” he said. “In my past, I didn’t pay much attention to what was going on in the rest of the world. I was caught up in drugs, in selling drugs and crime and everything else. I really didn’t pay attention to anything.” The couple say they plan to work within the christian ministry of their local community.
