Michelle McCool - WWE Diva

Michelle Leigh McCool (born January 25, 1980), also known simply as Michelle McCool, is an American professional wrestler currently working for World Wrestling Entertainment under the SmackDown! brand. Before becoming involved in professional wrestling, she was a sixth grade teacher in Palatka, Florida

Michelle McCool first came to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) as a competitor in the WWE Diva Search 2004, from which she was the 4th woman eliminated. Despite not winning the contest, she was still signed to a 3-year WWE developmental contract in November 2004 and assigned to the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) farm territory. She entered SmackDown! as a face with a personal trainer gimmick, a reference to her actual past employment. Unlike most of the other "Rookie Divas" who participated in the Diva Search, McCool aimed to become an actual professional wrestler.

After participating in a number of "Rookie Diva" and "Best body" contests, she had her first SmackDown! match, teaming with The Big Show to defeat Dawn Marie and René Duprée on March 3, 2005. McCool and Dawn Marie feuded for the next few weeks, with Marie coming out on top.

A few months later, McCool became apart of the feud between MNM and Heidenreich when she defended Heidenreich against MNM's manager Melina's verbal attacks. Melina and McCool then began a feud, including Melina's SmackDown! debut match, which Melina won. After the match, MNM gave McCool their finisher, The Snapshot. This would be the last time she appeared on WWE Television for almost a year.

McCool was then sent to WWE's Atlanta, Georgia territory, Deep South Wrestling (DSW), where she wrestled, performed interviews, hosted segments, and provided color commentary with Nigel Sherrod. She also feuded with Angel Williams. While in DSW, she was hospitalized after taking prescribed medication, and she was sidelined for several weeks to recover. Eventually she was moved to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). While in OVW, she began managing the duo of Amish Roadkill and K.C. James.

She returned to SmackDown! on June 2, 2006, this time working as a heel with a "hot teacher" gimmick, again pulling on her real life experiences. Upon her arrival, she aligned with Kristal Marshall to feud with then-faces Jillian Hall and Ashley Massaro. This led to a Fatal Four Way Bra and Panties match at The Great American Bash, which Ashley won. She won her first singles match on the July 28, 2006 edition of SmackDown!, defeating Hall by illegally using the ropes as leverage.

Soon after, she began acting as valet for the team of K.C. James and Idol Stevens, who, because of her association with them, were nicknamed The Teacher's Pets. The trio began feuding with Paul London and Brian Kendrick, and their valet Ashley, for the WWE Tag Team Championship, but never won the title. The feud ended when London and Kendrick won a blow off match at No Mercy 2006 in October.

On November 28, 2006, McCool was hospitalized with an enlarged kidney, a broken sternum, and an electrolyte imbalance.During her absence, both James and Stevens were sent back to OVW. She was released from the hospital on December 2, 2006.

McCool returned on the March 30, 2007 edition of SmackDown!, where she participated in a 10-Diva Tag Team Match and participated in the LumberJills match at WrestleMania 23 between Ashley and Melina. McCool turned face once again when she came to the aid of Ashley after she was attacked by Jillian Hall backstage, which led to a short feud between herself and Hall.
