The Undertaker: Michelle McCool Is One Of WWE's Most Under-Recognised Talents Ever
Taker wants more love shown to the former WWE Women's Champion
From the Moolah/Richter wars of the Rock & Wrestling era, through the lows of the Attitude Era and Ruthless Aggression Era, to the highs of the Divas Revolution, WWE’s women’s division has a long tumultuous history, with many legendary names sprinkled throughout.
But one name who doesn’t get as much love as some of her peers is Michelle McCool, and The Undertaker wants to change that.
Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Taker spoke on how he feels his wife McCool is under-recognised despite her successful WWE run, after the pair were filmed at a recent Dallas Cowboys game, with only Undertaker given a shout-out:
“You know what, I can get on a rant there,” started Taker “I think she’s probably one of the most under-recognised 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 recognised her and were very kind to her. That’s always well appreciated.”
Michelle McCool is a former two-time WWE Women’s Champion, and former two-time WWE Divas Champion.
