The Undertaker: Michelle McCool Is One Of The Most Under-Recognized WWE Superstars

The Undertaker wants to make sure his wife Michelle McCool gets her props.

Michelle McCool is a former multi-time WWE Divas and Women's Champion who was one of the top female stars during an era where female talent wasn't afforded the same opportunities. While many fans look back fondly at the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita, and Mickie James; McCool isn't mentioned as often.

The Undertaker believes she deserves more recognition.

“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," Undertaker told Dallas Morning News when asked about McCool not being as recognized at the Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday.

McCool last competed at WWE Evolution in the 20 Women Battle Royal.

Elsewhere during the interview, Undertaker discussed the possibility of returning to the ring for WrestleMania. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
