H.B.I.C.: “I think she is one of the most powerful women in wrestling, to this day, is Stephanie McMahon — and I don’t mean what y’all think I mean. On TV, she is just one of the most powerful characters. From playing ‘The Queen Bitch,’ to the ‘Billion Dollar Princess,’ to even coming out not too long ago to give it to Paul Heyman.”


Boss Lady: “She’s awesome in every possible way. From mic work to bumping — I remember her taking the DDT off the top ropes from Randy Orton, oh, my gosh! From her facials to everything… she is just great, and she’s great to work for. She’s a great boss: creative, always wants you to do your best, always there to offer advice — honest advice, which is sometimes rare to find. She shoots from the hip, which I just love. Why beat around the bush? She’s also very hands-on when she’s at the shows. Can’t say enough positive things about Steph.”


The Real Legacy: “Of course, she’s so powerful. And if you’re a true fan of the business, obviously you know the legacy is there. She can be intimidating, not intentionally by any means, but I was intimidated because of the amount of respect I had for her and for her family.”


Pulled Aside: “I do remember during one pre-tape, it was with a few of the girls, and I remember her saying: ‘Michelle, come into the bathroom real quick, I need to tell you something.’ I’m thinking: ‘Oh, no. She doesn’t wanna embarrass me about how horrible I am in front of other people — which is nice, but she’s still about to tell me gosh knows what. So we go in there and she’s like: ‘I think you need to shave your armpits.’ I raise them up, and I’m like: ‘No, I shave my armpits every day!’ So when I raise them up, I’ve got black fuzz from my sweatshirt, but she was calling me in there to tell me. Stuff like that, she’s just funny.”


The Future Unfolds: “She can give good direction and really help your character grow. I don’t know if there are many people that I enjoy watching on TV than her. You can hate her on TV but absolutely love her backstage. I think she’s and such a strong woman… and that’s the type of person that I look up to, the type of person that I admire. I think as long as she’s there behind-the-scenes, the business will continue to do nothing but grow. I love her as a person, and I am very, extremely, fortunate to call her a friend.”

Eddie & Vickie Guerrero: “Vickie and I have been good friends even before she started playing a role on TV. When she used to come on the show with Eddie, she and I became fast friends. Eddie was always around to help me; in the ring, advice — thankfully he took a liking to me. He was soft-spoken, very humble. You’d never know that the Eddie you saw on TV wasn’t the Eddie you saw backstage; quite, humble, so respectful. He was awesome. Just one of the best entertainers — ever!”


On The Road: “When she came back and started playing a role on TV, she didn’t tell anybody. I remember her showing up — oh, my gosh! It was just one of the best days ever! I was going to have Vickie on the show, on the road, help keep me sane, one of my best friends… she’s just so funny.”


Heat Magnet: “She’s one of the most-hated people on TV, and I think that says so much about her character. She can get more heat than, I’d be willing to say, anybody on TV right now. Male or female. The boos are just that defining. When Layla and I would do promos out in the arena, it was just the most-fun ever! People genuinely hate her. I remember the three of us standing next to each other in the ring and we literally couldn’t hear what she was saying because the people were booing her so loudly. I just thought that must be the most-awesome feeling, ever!”


The Cougar: “I think she plays her character great. She is absolutely game for anything. She’s not a wrestler, but when it came to the WrestleMania match, or any match she had to be in, she wanted to be out there and learning how to do it. She took some crazy bumps: the wheelchair bump with Rey, a tombstone by The Undertaker… she’s just been in some crazy situations. Of course, her storyline with Edge was just the best ever. They were hilarious. The two of them together, they way they feed off of each other, they just must have had so much fun.”


Flawless Friends: “I love her dearly. She was one of the people I’d travel with because we both had similar routines. We both liked to get up early, go to the gym, and we liked to be the first people at the arena. We were always, from the day that I was on TV, locker room buddies. We camped out next to each other in the locker room — we’d have our own little corner! It was just nice to have somebody that you can just genuinely talk to. Good, bad, ugly… we’ve shared a lot of moments together. For that, I’m forever grateful. She’s had a few stories that she’s scared me for life from that I can’t reveal, but she knows exactly what I’m talking about. She thinks it’s the funniest thing in the world, but I don’t find it that funny at all!”


Fighting For Divas: “She’s helped me through a lot of things. She was always there for me. Sometimes people get reputations that aren’t necessarily true and she’s a great ear to listen and she’s just a great friend. We were fortunate enough to worth with her some, and for a while there, she worked with LayCool and she was one of the ‘Flawless ones’ — and she’d be right there with us! First one to march down to Vince’s office to knock on his door and pitch ideas. She was an instrumental part; she really wanted to help the Diva’s division. Her being involved with some of us really did help the division grow because of her character and how much respect she had from everybody. She helped fight.”


A Change For WrestleMania: “She always wanted to get involved with the girls. As far as in-ring work goes: she was the first one to want to get out there and learn exactly what to do. She wanted to make it the best possible by staying in character — doing goofy things in the ring, but more importantly, she wanted to take care of the person she was working with. I remember her being extremely nervous to do the Frog-Splash, which Layla and I renamed the Cougar-Splash. Originally, that was going to be Beth Phoenix, but that ended up getting changed for the night of WrestleMania — which really made Vickie nervous. When you start practicing with somebody you just get in a mindset, especially if you’re not in the ring that often. So the night of Hall of Fame, we all get called into the back, and we’ve already had our rehearsal, and they tell us about the change to the finish — she’ll be doing it to Kelly. Vickie was worried; about climbing the turnbuckle, hurting somebody, it not being perfect, but she did awesome!”


Truly Inspiring: “She looks awesome! The transformation she’s had through the years is just inspiring. I can’t say enough about her: she’s a dear friend that I still talk to all the time. Love her and her girls to death — there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her. She’s a true friend through thick and thin. We will always be friends. Lots of great times on the road: lots of laughter, lots of tears, and lots of special moments shared together that I will cherish forever. I Love her dearly.”


To Infinity…: “I think her career will be as long as she wants her career to be. I don’t think she’s going anywhere. I love when she’s in charge on TV because people hate it so much, and I don’t think there is anyone better.”

Stomping Grounds: “Piggie James was the storyline that brought LayCool to fruition and really started and helped develop our characters. It was a main storyline that, at the time, started giving Divas more screen time and longer matches — we even had a huge celebration. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: I give every single ounce of credit for that storyline to Mickie.”


Keeping It Professional: “It was tough on everybody, but obviously tough on Mickie, to say the least. She was the utmost professional in that situation. She never complained about the material that was being written. She never bitched, moaned, or tried to change it or get it shut down. She knew it was business — she knew it was going to help us.”


Working with The Best: “She was already an incredibly over babyface, she was a great wrestler — people loved her. She was one of those people who came in as a heel during the whole ‘psycho/Trish’ thing, but the fans loved her so much that WWE ended up turning her babyface. I don’t think we could have done that storyline with anybody else.”


Fan Reaction: “We got so much hate from that storyline from fans. People would send stuff in and we’d just be like: ‘holy moly, we’re getting genuine hate — but on the other hand, I feel horrible! What kind of message is this sending out?’ You just have to kind of remember that it’s just a character on TV. A lot of times people just forgot that and it’s easy to do.”


The Birth of Piggie James: “It literally got started out of the clear-blue air. I remember being overseas, and that’s when they told me at the arena that day that I was going to be singing the ‘Old McDonald Had a Farm’ little vignette, and I didn’t know what to think. Honestly? I thought they were joking at first, a rib on me because my singing is so horrible — so I was already nervous about that. I hid all day; ‘I can’t believe they’re making me do this — where is this going?’ I had no idea where the storyline was going to go after that. During rehearsal that day, I’m literally sitting on the ground by the ring, like hiding… I felt awful.”


Advance Apology: “There were so many times, time after time, where we would go up to Mickie and apologize in advance. We’d be like: ‘this sucks and I’m sorry. Obviously, we didn’t write this. I’m just sorry… we don’t know what else to say.’ Like I said: she was always completely cool with it. I’m sure it hurt; things like that do. Obviously she’s not big — she’s one of the smallest people. There’s no way anybody thought she was really overweight or ‘Piggie James.’ Again, that was just our stupid, silly LayCool characters that we had. Like I said: all credit to her. It would have not progressed, gone as far, or had gotten over like it did if it weren’t for her. I don’t think any other babyface could have pulled that off.”


What Goes Around..: “I don’t feel like LayCool ever got our butts handed to us by her enough. I never understood that… it was like: ‘why isn’t she killing us here? Doing this or doing that?’ I think the story could have even gone further because the fans, week after week, wanted her to just embarrass us. At the Rumble we ended up with birthday cake in our face, and everybody loved that. Here we were embarrassed by her — that was great!”


A Night To Remember: “During the Piggie James send-off, LayCool was cutting a promo. Then Maria came, she came, and then she cut a promo. I remember that she almost made me break character. We were talking about how dumb Maria was, or something like that, and Mickie flew off the cuff and said something about: ‘oh, really? We all saw ‘Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?,’ mmmhmm!’ — I’m looking at her like: oh, gosh! I wanted to break character so bad! As soon as we got backstage I told her that she almost got me — almost busted out laughing!”


Vince’s Angels: “Vince ended up loving the LayCool character as a result of that storyline. That’s kind of how things kind of kept happening for us. But, like I said: I give credit to Mickie James. She was fighting with us to get TV time, to get pay-per-view matches, to raise the bar… not many people will always do that. But she did, and I will forever be grateful for that.”


Working With Mickie: “We’ve pulled off some really good matches together. We always kinda clicked; worked well together. That always makes it fun inside the ring when you know you can work with somebody. You can fly off the cuff while you’re in there; you can improvise. We had some fun. Plus, her finisher was always one of my most fun ones to take! It was hard and trying at times, but was fun. She was a true professional and always wanted to do business — what was best for the business.”


Stealing The Show: “Something to add: the night we smashed cake in Mickie’s face, during her send-off… she was just brilliant on her response! That was the point where LayCool finally got to Mickie James, she just looked humiliated as she ran off in tears. Nobody else could have done that the way she did it. As we all came backstage — and very, very rarely does this happen — Vince, Michael Hayes, and everybody in the gorilla position were standing up and clapping saying: ‘the girls just stole the show.’ That was a very, very special moment. I give her all the props in the world. So, thanks Mickie if you hear this — I really, really appreciate you!”

Never a Dream Match: “Everyone always used to ask when I was going to wrestle her or I want to see you in a one-on-one match with her. I think one of the most consistent answers for any of the girls when they’re asked “who do you want to wrestle” is Beth Phoenix — but that was never really the case for me, as far as an opponent or dream opponent. For me, that was always Molly Holly, Lita and Awesome Kong/Kharma. Personally, Beth was never the answer for me.”


Finisher Gone Wrong: For the most part of both of our careers, we were on different brands. She was on RAW for most of the time and I was on SmackDown. Never any ill words towards each other — from what I know. We did have the chance to face off pretty early on in my career [SmackDown, Champion vs. Champion] and that was the first time I had gotten in the ring with her. So she gives me her Glam Slam and I take it straight on my face because my arms didn’t come unhooked.”


Botch Phoenix?: “At the time, I was like: “Oh, man. I’ve never seen that happen before. How did she not get my arms unhooked?” I didn’t understand, but figured it must have just been a mistake. I never said anything, but I did have a concussion from that. But I’ll never give anybody any credit for hurting me — that’s just my stubbornness, it has nothing to do with WWE. I’ve just always been that way. At the time, I just thought she didn’t even know she did it.”


Truth Revealed: “Come to find out, and it wasn’t even that long ago, I remember getting the WWE magazine in the mail and flipping through the pages. Sure enough, she’s doing an interview in the magazine talking about when she gave me the Glam Slam and saying how bad my head hit the mat, how she didn’t unhook my arms and oops! I’m just like: “Wow. Years later, the truth comes out.” She knew that she did that, it definitely sounded like she knew she did it at the time. I was just like: “Dang! What did I ever do to her?” What was that? Was that my “I didn’t come in the ranks” welcome to the rings match — what? I didn’t care. I just blew it off.”


Difficult Times: “So she comes to SmackDown and LayCool was well-established by that time. WWE put us in a program with Beth and LayCool was just doing their usual LayCool stuff: Glam-A-Man, The Manazon… just LayCool being stupid LayCool. Kind of like when nobody thought Mickie was actually fat, nobody thought Beth was actually a man. It was just our stupid gimmick, and I use the term stupid affectionately.


Working With Beth: “It was definitely bumpy, to say the least. It was never easy. I understand that it can’t be easy on the other side of the LayCool gimmick, no matter how tough the exterior is. It was just definitely a struggle. Being a Diva in a man’s world, you’re constantly in an uphill battle; pitching ideas, trying to get TV time, trying to get in-ring time, the whole nine yards.”


Behind Closed Doors: “It seemed like we were on the same page — pitching stuff, throwing ideas off one another in the locker room, but then come to find out… that wasn’t the case behind-the-scenes. We didn’t understand why stuff would keep getting shot down. Steph, agents and writers would come to us and say: “we’re no longer doing this,” or “this hits too close to home.” Whatever. There was definitely some stuff being said on the other end and that made it a struggle. She could have just been at a different place in her life, we all go through tough times or confusing times — I just don’t really know what her case was. I’m sure people will start hating me for my own opinion, but that wasn’t a fun LayCool storyline for us. We had some good matches and I’m always going to do business, but I think I had a different experience with her than most people who wrestle with her or against her.”


Business Is Business: “I hope she’s completely happy now, she’s done some great things — but like I said: she was never a dream opponent for me, and that’s all I really have to say about that. Wish her nothing but the best, hope she’s in a good place and enjoying life. Sadly, my most memorable thing with her is that I’m probably the only person in Glam Slam history to not have had their arms unhooked… ouch.”

MichelleMcCool.Net is your number one source for information about WWE Diva, Michelle McCool that you won't find anywhere else! Here's a little sample of our latest exclusive interview with Michelle, in honor of our 6th Anniversary:

Have you had any injuries/accidents or moments in the ring that have ever made you think you can’t do it anymore? What kept you going?
"Passion keeps you going! It's no secret that the majority of the Superstars and Divas work injured, me included. I had the injury bug start biting pretty good this past year. The bulged disks in my neck were incredibly painful, but just as scary! My foot still isn't healed, which is really frustrating an impatient person. But, it comes with the territory and to answer the question: you just keep on keeping on!"
