WWE.com caught up with former Women’s and Divas Champion, Michelle McCool, for a new back to school feature. Michelle, of course, was a teacher prior to joining WWE in 2004.
Michelle comments on her retirement and what she’s been up to since leaving WWE earlier this year, as well as what she misses about WWE.
[notice]WWE.com: First, how has “retirement” been, and can you tell the WWE Universe what you’ve been up to.
Retirement has been wonderful. For the past two weeks I’ve been visiting my family in Florida laying on the beach for 5 or 6 hours a day.
WWE.com: Sounds like it’s a lot less stressful than traveling 250 days a year and taking hits inside in the WWE ring.
Yes, and I tell you, having my feet in the sand and listening to the waves break is a little less stressful than being in the ring. You know, I’d never do this to my friends, but I may have sent a few pictures out of my toes in the sand. It’s been great – I really can’t complain.
WWE.com: Do you miss anything about being a WWE Diva?
I miss several of the Divas and Superstars, but I do keep in contact with them. I miss seeing the fans and performing in the ring, although my body is doing much better. I’ve been pretty banged up the past two years, but this has allowed me to spend time with family and dear friends that you don’t get to do when you’re on the road almost 300 days a year. I’m cherishing these moments right now.[/notice]

Thoughts: It’s been just over three months since Michelle retired at Extreme Rules and while many of our readers may not miss her, this writer certainly does! However, glad to hear that she’s enjoying some much deserved downtime and healing her body.
