Michelle McCool - Former WWE Diva

Updated on January 13, 2017

One of the hottest WWE Divas ever, Michelle McCool

Michelle McCool was born on January 25th, 1980 in Palatka, Florida.

She is a female professional wrestler who worked for the WWE on their SmackDown brand, where she was the very first WWE Divas Champion.
Before Michelle got into wrestling, she was a seventh grade teacher in Palatka, Florida.
Michelle started out with the WWE back in 2004 WWE Diva Search. She didn't win, as a matter of fact, she was the fourth woman eliminated.

Regardless, the WWE signed her to a three-year contract in November 2004. She went to Smackdown and was first seen helping Rey Mysterio "stretch out" before a match as a personal trainer.

The WWE sent her down to their developmental wrestling facility, Deep South Wrestling (DSW), for training. There she wrestled, performed interviews, hosted segments, and provided commentary on matches. Her first feud in DSW was against Angel Williams (current TNA Knockout Angelina Love) .
Michelle moved from DSW to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). While she was in OVW, she began managing the duo of Amish Roadkill (former ECW star Roadkill) and K.C. James.
She finally was moved up from OVW back to Smackdown and began her " hot teacher" gimmick. Slightly disturbing considering she had actually been a seventh grade teacher.
Michelle turned heel and started teaming up with Kristal to start a feud with (then-face), Jillian Hall and Ashley Massaro.

On November 28th, Michelle was hospitalized with an enlarged kidney, a broken sternum, and an electrolyte imbalance.This was the second time she had been medically sidelined, the first was back in DSW when she was hospitalized after taking prescribed medication.
She returned to the WWE on March 30, 2007, taking part in a 10-Diva Tag Team match on Smackdown. After the match, Michelle did a face turn coming to the aid of Ashley who was begin attacked by her former partner and now heel Jillian Hall.
Michelle began a storyline with Chuck Palumbo and Jamie Noble and after that storyline ended, the matches began to decide the first WWE Divas Champion.

She competed against Victoria, Eve Torres, Maryse and Cherry in a series of matches and came out on top.
Then At The Great American Bash on July 20, 2008, Michelle defeated Natalya to become the first WWE Divas Champion.
This made Michelle the second Diva Search contestant to win a WWE title. ( Candice Michelle was the first).
Considering her lean muscular look, this 5' 10" lady could have been a model or fitness competitor, but instead she chose wrestling.
Michelle is about to debut a new finisher since WWE management decided that her old finisher "Wings of Love" was too rough on the other divas.
Michelle lost her WWE Diva's Title to Maryse. This may be her "heel turn".


Since this was written back in October of 2008, a lot of things have happened with Michelle.
Yes she did turn heel.
And she went on a spree defeating Eve Torres, Gail Kim and Melina, WWE Women's Championship.
She teamed up with Layla El, creating the WWE's version of TNA's The Beautiful People, Lay-Cool.
Michelle was named the Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) number one female wrestler of 2010.
And she won two "Slammys" in 2010, the Slammy Award for Diva of the Year and the Slammy Award for Knucklehead Moment of the Year.
Of course this winning streak and all of the accolades has nothing to do with her dating and marrying the Undertaker.

2011 didn't start out too well for Michelle as at WrestleMania XXVII on April 3, 2011, Michelle, Layla and Dolph Ziggler took on The Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Trish Stratus, and John Morrison in a 6-person mixed tag team match.
Michelle lost the match for her team, being the one Snooki.
Then Layla and Michelle had a falling out and started a feud which ended in a Loser Leaves WWE match which Michelle lost at Extreme Rules.
She also became the first Diva to taste the wrath of the debuting Kharma after losing that match.

But wait!
On her Twitter account on September 12th, 2011, Michelle made a few comments that made fans think she might be looking at a return.
She said there that she was ready to come back and at the RAW Supershow in Austin, Texas on October 24th, she and the Undertaker were both backstage.


On August 1st 2012, Michelle and Mark "The Undertaker" Calaway announced that they were expecting their first child.

Kaia Faith Calaway was born on August 29th, 2012.
