A Cool Legacy Among Hot Garbage
The WWE has taken major steps forward in the booking of the women's division and just how they allow the female talent to be perceived on television is a lot different then how it was years ago. Now with how well they have booked talent like Asuka, Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and others it would be almost impossible for me to imagine them booking them as weak as they use to handle the division. However, with the Women's Royal Rumble on the horizon they seem to be taking even more steps forward then anyone thought. This makes me want to look back at how things use to be in the WWE and find some positives in a mess of garbage. With that being said there was only one woman I could think of as she was "flawless."
I'm aware that there were two "flawless" women from the team formerly known as LayCool but I am focusing on just on of them as I do think that Michelle did more during her career. Now at first I don't think any fans would have thought that McCool would be anything more than just another manager but she proved everyone wrong and showed a lot more skills then I'm sure anyone thought they would've. Originally, McCool was a member of the 2004 diva search and though she eliminated early much like Tough Enough the winner wasn't the only one that got a contract. By the end of 2005, McCool was heading into Deep South Wrestling which was one of the developmental territories for the company at the time.
Michelle would then be brought to main roster as the manager of K.C James & Idol Stevens and though this didn't really last to long it did open the door for McCool remaining on the main roster. Two years after being nothing more than a manager Michelle would defeat Nattie to become the first Divas Champion and her first taste of WWE gold. In my opinion it was around this time that Michelle began to hit her stride and really show just how good she was in the ring and the potential she was really putting on display.
Though I won't go through it all it is fair to say that Team LayCool was one of the few good thing about the WWE during this time period. Even though Michelle wasn't around to long in the company she did really leave a legacy behind but not really because of the legacy she left behind, but more how weak the division was at the time. Now I'm not trying to bash McCool or anything it just that she made the most out of a weak division and really earned everything she would receive in her career and very much should be consider a legend in the wrestling business because of this.
