WWE News: Michelle McCool diagnosed with skin cancer
Former WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool revealed today on Instagram that she has skin cancer. However, she did not put forward any official statement but just wrote it in a tone that encouraged people to use sun tan. McCool wrote:
It is a good thing that skin cancer can be battled head on, and there are high possibilities for skin cancer recovery. Either way, cancer is a tragic thing, and we at Sportskeeda would like to wish the best of luck to Michelle McCool and her family in her battle with cancer. Her post can be seen below:
McCool surely was a significantly featured performer in the Divas era of WWE. The Divas era might not be looked upon very fondly by the WWE Universe, but truth is, there were some very gifted women from the time, namely Beth Pheonix, Natalya, Kaitlyn, and Michelle Mccool herself, to name a few. They were not provided the same opportunity as their male counterparts.
Michelle McCool played a significant role in WWE for about 5 years, becoming a two-time women’s champion during the phase. When the Divas Championship was introduced, McCool became the inaugural champion by beating Natalya at The Great American Bash in 2008.
She went on to become a two-time Divas Champion and definitely came to gain more prominence when she aligned herself with Layla. They directly entered into a feud with Mickie James, which turned out to be quite a controversial one, due to the fact that they made fun of Mickie James’ weight when Layla dressed up as a pig and did a gimmick called “Piggy James”.
She also defeated Melina at Night Of Champions 2010, to become the first ever unified Divas Champion. McCool is also married to Mark Callaway, famously known as The Undertaker, whom she married in 2010. The couple has a daughter together.
She retired from Professional Wrestling at Extreme Rules 2010, when she lost to Layla in a “Loser leaves WWE match”. This was used to write her off in in storyline, and when she left WWE, she revealed that her foot had been injured for two months with a broken toe, torn joint capsules, and a torn MCL.
