– In Michelle McCool’s latest blog on the WWE Universe site, she says she feels honored to have been the final opponent of former WWE Women’s champion Victoria, who announced her retirement from WWE following the match.
“Like I told you (if you are reading this Victoria) last night, I am honored to have had your last match with you and can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for not only this company, but me!,” McCool wrote.
McCool believes Victoria left a good impression on everyone she came in contact with, not to mention that she can’t do justice to the positive impact she had on her during their time together in the company.
“Though we’ve had our differences on tv, she is someone very special to me,” McCool said. “For me, she’s been someone to laugh with, someone to cry with, someone to drive with, someone to look up to professionally, someone to look up to personally, someone to be stupid with.”
McCool then goes back “into character” (which she acknowledges herself with the “Outside the ropes” & “Inside the ropes” references) by calling out WWE Divas Champion Maryse as well as SmackDown announcer Jim Ross.
On Maryse, McCool wrote, “Sure, Maryse is the Divas Champion, but I find it no coincidence that she supposedly got “hurt” the week after she stole my title. It’s funny how I didn’t notice her limping around last week when I saw her.”
Regarding Jim Ross, she is upset that he said her and Maryse look and act alike on commentary during her match with Victoria last night. “Other than the blonde hair, there are ZERO similarities and I mean ZERO!!!!,” McCool wrote. “I was going to confront him next week because of how irate I was until I read his latest blog here on wwe universe. In his blog, he said one of the smartest things (and what should be obvious to most) he has ever said. And I quote…. “It’s just Michelle McCool’s world and the rest of us are living in it!” He is absolutely right! So JR….I wholeheartedly forgive you for the comparisons you made between Frenchie and me!”
