The Undertaker on Michelle McCool: She Never Asked Me Once Will You Go Talk to Vince

Michelle McCool is a former multi-time champion in her own right. McCool is a two-time WWE Divas Champion and a two-time WWE Women’s Champion, along with being the inaugural Divas Champion. Michelle was one of the top female stars during a time where women in the WWE weren’t granted equal opportunity. Many fans look back at Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James, and others as pioneers; Michelle isn’t mentioned as frequently as the others listed.

Michelle’s husband, The Undertaker, has been outspoken recently when it comes to the lack of recognition she has received. 

When speaking with the Dallas Morning News, The Deadman took the time to praise his wife after she wasn’t recognized at the Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday. The WrestleMania legend said the following, “You know what, I can get on a rant there. I think she’s probably one of the most under-recognized WWE superstars for what she did while she was there and the ground work she fought for, right, to where the women are now. The women are pretty much on the same level now as the men, they’ve headlined WrestleMania. She was one, when she was active with the WWE, was never satisfied with the role that the women were given. She fought. She went back and forth. And to her credit, never asked me once, never asked me once will you go talk to Vince [McMahon] or will you do this. She always wanted to do it herself. And I just wish people really understood how much she fought for the women and the opportunities to do the things the women are doing now. … To her credit, she did get — there was a lot of love. Obviously, there wasn’t the big fanfare, but there was a lot of people [in the stadium] that recognized her and were very kind to her. That’s always well appreciated.”

Michelle’s last appearance in the WWE, as of now, was back at the WWE Evolution pay-per-view in 2018 as a part of the 20 Women Battle Royal.
