What’s the story?

Former WWE Women’s Champion Michelle McCool recently sat down with Lilian Garcia on her Chasing Glory podcast and during her interaction with the former WWE announcer, McCool revealed that she still misses wrestling from time-to-time and has a hard time in watching wrestling on television.

In case you didn’t know…

Michelle McCool is a former two time WWE Women’s Champion and is one of the veterans of the wrestling business, much like her husband Mark Callaway aka The Undertaker. Throughout her wrestling career, McCool has performed for one promotion only and that being the WWE.

In 2008, McCool also became the inaugural WWE Divas Champion and has held the title on two different occasions in the past as well. It was in 2011 when McCool wrestled her last wrestling match and announced her retirement from the sport shortly after.

The heart of the matter

McCool stated in her interview with Lillian Garcia that she misses competing inside the wrestling every now and then, and it is also hard for her to watch the current WWE product. Additionally, Michelle also claimed that during her wrestling days the women barely got 2-3 minutes to try and tell an in-ring story which was almost next to impossible, however, she also pointed out the fact that nowadays the current women are working in cage matches and Royal Rumble matches as well, which is something McCool is very proud of.

McCool also admitted that her daughter is a huge fan of wrestling and loves watching WWE. She added that she wants her daughter to pursue whatever makes her happy in life, even if it means a career inside the wrestling ring which she will be totally supportive of.

What’s next?

McCool maybe currently retired from in-ring competition, but a few months ago we witnessed a social media interaction between her and current Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, who invited the former Women’s Champion to have one more match in the WWE. Since then there have been a few speculations that have suggested that the former Slammy Award winner could possibly make a return to the WWE after all.

Author’s Take

Michelle McCool is one of the most solid workers the WWE has seen and she is also a veteran of the wrestling business, seeing her work with the current WWE product will indeed be a blessing for all wrestling fans.
