This was a pretty fun deck to build. I don't think I've ever seen anyone go a volley route with moolah.
for the pre-match the most important things to get out are Jimmy, the pyros, playing by the rules, all these years and possibly tech. From turn one I just start to remove anything I feel is essential to the deck. IF possible I'll try to get rid of the don't try's as they can come in hand to my opponent late game when I'm acing volley beyond the edge. both times I've used the deck I've just been lucky to get a volley in play start of game and both opponents were not chain or heat. This deck just sits and stalls for the most part. even though she doesn't get the benefit of packing thrust knee lifts her ability paired with the small volley maneuvers that remove cards and volleyed beyond the edge is more than enough to pump up the whip. She also gets the benefit from legend cards and era of the superstar. It's certainly a fun deck. Any suggestions are more than welcome.

1) You would probably need a belt if you're intending to play The Champ is Here

2) Leg Drag TB > Nerve Hold, having an answer against Precision Haymaker is more reliable than being able to reverse any straight up Grapple/Submission

3) Regarding the Precision Haymaker threat, maybe a Special Guest Ref? Opponent forcing you to draw 5 thins out 11% of your health

4) If you're not running Cheater, try Ole! It's good against maneuvers like Punch After Punch and might provide a clutch recovery, it gets -5F from Playing by the Rules TB as well.

5) Avoid compromising on staple Reversals, keep your DTTAH x 3 (or x2 at least if that is your local meta) and Once is Enough x 3, try squeezing in I've Got One Thing to Say About This to provide more "cannot be reversed" coverage

All in all, a volley Moolah is definitely a refreshing idea, but it seems like you're trying to do too much and might need to resort back to the girly moves/panic grab to gain early fortitude and bridge into Shoot Actions for bridging more fortitude and opening Shoot Counter, resulting in redundancy for the Volley aspects of the deck.

p.s. Try to see if your opponent is packing any Backslides and removed them when you can, since you probably wouldn't want to walk into one with your vulnerable volley strikes

1) Yeah, their was a belt in there before I posted. I took it out because my deck ended up being illegal. I never played the belt but it was the WWE championship. I prefer to keep the King Interferes over the belt. I was thinking about adding in Evening up the odds so I’ll replace the champ is here with that.

2 and 3) although I do agree with you I have hardly seen anyone play precision Haymaker in a long time. Last night I played against Sabu who is strike heavy as well as high risk and I was able to counter quite a bit of them. Nerve hold is in there mainly for people who tend to be submission heavy. Maybe I’ll take a look and see what I can remove to add in a leg drag.

4) I really must have overlooked Ole. I packed it in my Mae deck. I must have missed it when building Moolah.

5) I only packed 1 Don’t try because I do have the women’s evolution in my backlash that also stops ace effects. With 45 cards in Arsenal I did what I could with what I had. I figured maybe after a few more games if the reversal base needed a change I’d look into it. I may switch in an additional once is enough. But for right now the only thing I need to add at the moment would be leg drag and ole. Maybe since she can also pack maneuvers of 3D I’ll take out consequences and backhand and add sidewalk slams for the additional F.
