The Undertaker thinks Michelle McCool should be in the WWE Hall of Fame

Mar 19, 2022 - by Steve Gerweck

While speaking with The Dallas Morning News, 2022 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee The Undertaker suggested that his wife Michelle McCool should also receive a Hall of Fame Induction.

He said “There’s several. Off the top of my head, and this is going to sound really super political, but I believe my wife [Michelle McCool] should be in. She was one working in an era where women didn’t get nearly the opportunities that they do now, and she fought so hard for the women to kind of get more of a spotlight put on them. She was actually reprimanded once for having too good of a match with Melina. That’s a true story.”

    The women didn’t get the spotlight / high profile matches at the time because they sucked ass at wrestling. She wasn’t any good and only slightly stood out due to how low the bar was. Same with Edge’s lady if we’re going to be honest. Michelle Was a product of the diva search sh-t.

    I can’t remember even ONE good match Michelle McUndertaker was in.
    She’s untalented and the only reason she became that famous is because she rides Takers wiener.
    There’s a reason she was a nobody before dating him.

    OMG he said wiener lol

    But nah…I agree. I’m sure she’s nice but just like Beth going into the hall as a result of her having Edge babies it’ll be the same story here.

    Well if they will put in sharmell who did nothing they should put Michelle in to

    Look, the guy is retired. He can’t leave Michelle like he used to when he worked and has probably been listening to her complain 24/7 about Sharmell being inducted before her. What else is he supposed to do?

    BTW, am I the only who longs for the days when he took the Undertaker gimmick seriously and never did interviews? Every time I turn around, he’s flapping his gum about something.

    She was the inaugural WWE DIva champion. She contributed something to wrestling and therefore I have no problem with her being in the HOF if they ever ask her. I have no problem with them asking anyone. It’s not a popularity contest.

  7. Impact's Womens division is it says:

    While I was never much of a fan, always thought she was very bland (I much preferred her partner Layla), and some of the other lackluster women they’ve inducted lately (Torrie, The Bella’s and soon to be Sharmell) they don’t have a high bar, I guess. So why not? She was one of earlier women who pushed for more than just T&A and quickie matches. Although she did have Undertaker to protect her for speaking her mind.

    They really need to make some strong picks, and soon. Mickie James, Victoria and Melina have been frequently bandied about by fans as inductees and would likely be largely supported. And even though I don’t like her, Sable was a huge force during her time. I doubt she really cares about being inducted (she never seemed to care much about wrestling in general) and is enjoying being out of the spotlight and spending Brock’s money. So she may well turn down any offers.

    But I thought the HOF wasn’t a legit thing (there’s not even a building or anything!) so who cares who goes in? Pick a side, people.

    It seems a little rude to put Beth Phoenix in the same category as Michelle McCool. At least Beth was an ameteur wrestler before she joined WWE.

  9. Rob Dam Van! Shirt Typo! says:

    I totally agree that she is leaps and bounds better than Michelle ever was, but she isn’t all that impressive otherwise. She only stands out due to the roster she was on, with a very low bar. Beth Pheonix wouldn’t be star in comparison to some of the women today. Hell, i’d argue she wasn’t a star during her time either, just slightly over on the product.

  10. What? says:

    Whether she deserves to go in is debatable, if we’re operating on the questionable assumption that HOF induction is based on things like talent, longevity and/or contributions to the industry. Under that same assumption, that she deserves to go in before Sharmell is a no-brainer.
