Michelle McCool Leaving WWE?

Former WWE Divas Champion, Michelle McCool is leaving WWE, according to the Wrestling Observer.

The first ever Divas Champion will face off with Layla this Sunday at Extreme Rules in a ‘Loser Leaves WWE’ match. It’s reported that the match could serve as her exit from the company.

McCool joined WWE in 2004 after competing in the Raw Diva Search. Despite losing, she was signed to a contract and has outlasted all of her fellow contestants with over six years on the WWE roster. She is also currently the longest serving Diva on the roster.

Michelle became the first ever Divas Champion in 2008, followed by becoming the first ever woman to hold the Divas and Women’s Championships in 2009. Last year, she unified the two belts making her a triple history-maker.

Thoughts: There’s also a similar report floating around credited to PWInsider.com. If true, it’ll be sad to see Michelle leave but I’m sure she has her reasons. No doubt — despite being a certainly controversial figure — Michelle will be recognized for years to come for her accomplishments in WWE. I wouldn’t be surprised if, like Trish Stratus, she will pop in for the occasional appearance too. Of course, it remains to be seen how this will play out, so stay tuned…

    I read it would be temporary. That she will be back when the Undertaker comes back. All I know is that Layla will probably win and we’ll probably get one hell of a match.

    I really hope not, You can hate Michelle all you want but she’s certainly the best thing to ever come out of the Diva Search + She’s one of the most credible female wrestlers today.

    It’ll be a Sad Day and i really hope it isn’t true.

  • hado

    I had a feeling when I saw Smackdown, McCool would be leaving ! Going to be sad to see her gone, though she has served six years on the roster, and has been the best diva of this generation !

  • wweandtnadivafan

    yea she will be gone for a while to take care of undertaker of something hopefully kharma will take over the division

  • WWFoverWWE

    It’s her decision if she wants to come back or not, she doesn’t have too. Maybe she would end up liking staying at home not having to worry about the traveling, or maybe she would miss the ring and want to come back. Nothing is ever set in stone

    sucks the outcome of the match is pretty much spoiled

  • She-Wolf

    Michelle McCool = this generation’s Trish Stratus.

    I’ll be sad to see Michelle go, She was a diva I really got behind. I personally think she’s looking to start a family with the Undertaker. Michelle is very Christian, and I believe she wants to honour that by having children of her own… and Taker is not getting any younger.

    Although I want Michelle to stay and keep kicking ass, I’m sure she has her reasons. Best of luck to Michelle (: x

    Meh, You never know guys–This could be all part of a masterplan by WWE. It could be Layla, esp because Layla’s starring a movie with The Miz.

  • dirtydiva007

    It is said Michelle is leaving because the Undertaker wants her at home with him as he is not touring at the moment. It has also been said that when he does return to the company that Michelle will most likely be returning at the same time. It is said they want to bring Undertaker to Raw upon his return which most likely means if Michelle returns she will also head to the red brand. She is said to be on good terms with Vince too. So McCool fans I would not sweat it to much.

    Though Michelles popularity is not even close to Trish, Lita, or Mickie, she’s not the worst diva we’ve seen, she’s good at what she does, but she’s not even close to being the best.

  • wl75

    If this is it for her full-time, she’s had a good run- probably along with Mickie James the signature Divas of the 2005-2010 era, and I think HOF-worthy in a few years (despite the criticisms that she has had).

    Yeah, But think of it like this.. for someone’s who’s mostly been seen as a heel, she’s got a huge fan-base.

    Wow… I hope this is just for storylines and she will be back. I really quite like Michelle (Her in ring ability, not her amazing personality lol)
    One of the most solid workers of this diva generation!

  • shannymac

    What?! I’m really not a very big fan of Michelle, but she’s always seemed to be extremely happy in WWE and dedicated to her job. It wouldn’t surprise me to see her lose on Sunday and take a few months off to heal up and rest, but I would honestly be shocked to see her actually leave the company altogether.

  • GailKimFan09e

    Sad day in wwe, if the reports are true (which i’m hoping are not) then WWE will lose a great talent, Love her or hate her NO one can say that Michelle isn’t one of wwe top female talent that can Wrestle, get decent heat and has a character, She has put on some Amazing Matches with the likes of: Melina, Beth phoenix, Natalya, Gail kim, Eve, Layla. ,and the rest of the Divas and she also has the Abilities to even make the greener divas look amazing in the ring, I personally will Miss Michelle If She leaves because i feel she still has Divas and Feuds that she hasn’t wrestled yet , but Respect her decision if she does leave, Though i hope its Temporary and hope she returns because she did bring something to the Divas, and anyone who says other wise knows their lying.

  • Taylor

    It’s time for other Divas to shine. And this time around I would like for more than one Diva to be the centerpiece of the division. I think it would also be wise to finally use that popularity of Kelly’s to rejuvenate the division.

    And personally, I think labeling Michelle “this generation’s Trish Stratus” is quite out of place for her. Simply put, there’s more to Trish Stratus than all the accolades and accomplishments, which I still think Michelle doesn’t measure up to. But that’s just my opinion.

    In conclusion, good luck to her in her future endeavors if she is in fact leaving for good.

  • She-Wolf

    It seems to me like Michelle loves her job. I hope that it’s just a long break and she will return by next year at the latest… but if she is leaving I’d put money on the reason being because she wants to start a family. x

  • WWFoverWWE

    @samtherofl like I said, she’s good at what she does. I think michelle will be remembered sorely as a good worker, but that’s it. She’s not really someone you get excited to see, or get behind

  • Chris

    Apparently she’s only going to be gone until or around her husband makes a return to TV. He just wants her at home until then. Just guessing but he usually makes his return at SummerSlam so I’m guessing Michelle makes her return in about 3 months.

    But who gets behind heels? Who’s excited to see heels? I

    Yo I Hope Michelle Is Not Leaving Hope It’s A Rumor And She’ll Be Back Soon Michelle Please Don’t Go. :(

  • WWFoverWWE

    @samtherofl Trish, lita, and mickie were huge heels in WWE, but they were still popular and adored by the fans

  • wl75

    With Michelle leaving, who’s the longest serving Diva now? Kelly? Melina?

  • MickieJamesFan07

    Good, I’m glad shes leaving wwe. Hope she stays away.
