Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool recently spoke to MichelleMcCool.net. Here are some highlights. Eddie & Vickie Guerrero: “Vickie and I have been good friends even before she started playing a role on TV. When she used to come on the show with Eddie, she and I became fast friends. Eddie was always around to help me; in the ring, advice — thankfully he took a liking to me. He was soft-spoken, very humble. You’d never know that the Eddie you saw on TV wasn’t the Eddie you saw backstage; quite, humble, so respectful. He was awesome. Just one of the best entertainers — ever!” On The Road: “When she came back and started playing a role on TV, she didn’t tell anybody. I remember her showing up — oh, my gosh! It was just one of the best days ever! I was going to have Vickie on the show, on the road, help keep me sane, one of my best friends… she’s just so funny.” Heat Magnet: “She’s one of the most-hated people on TV, and I think that says so much about her character. She can get more heat than, I’d be willing to say, anybody on TV right now. Male or female. The boos are just that defining. When Layla and I would do promos out in the arena, it was just the most-fun ever! People genuinely hate her. I remember the three of us standing next to each other in the ring and we literally couldn’t hear what she was saying because the people were booing her so loudly. I just thought that must be the most-awesome feeling, ever!” The Cougar: “I think she plays her character great. She is absolutely game for anything. She’s not a wrestler, but when it came to the WrestleMania match, or any match she had to be in, she wanted to be out there and learning how to do it. She took some crazy bumps: the wheelchair bump with Rey, a tombstone by The Undertaker… she’s just been in some crazy situations. Of course, her storyline with Edge was just the best ever. They were hilarious. The two of them together, they way they feed off of each other, they just must have had so much fun.” Flawless Friends: “I love her dearly. She was one of the people I’d travel with because we both had similar routines. We both liked to get up early, go to the gym, and we liked to be the first people at the arena. We were always, from the day that I was on TV, locker room buddies. We camped out next to each other in the locker room — we’d have our own little corner! It was just nice to have somebody that you can just genuinely talk to. Good, bad, ugly… we’ve shared a lot of moments together. For that, I’m forever grateful. She’s had a few stories that she’s scared me for life from that I can’t reveal, but she knows exactly what I’m talking about. She thinks it’s the funniest thing in the world, but I don’t find it that funny at all!” Fighting For Divas: “She’s helped me through a lot of things. She was always there for me. Sometimes people get reputations that aren’t necessarily true and she’s a great ear to listen and she’s just a great friend. We were fortunate enough to worth with her some, and for a while there, she worked with LayCool and she was one of the ‘Flawless ones’ — and she’d be right there with us! First one to march down to Vince’s office to knock on his door and pitch ideas. She was an instrumental part; she really wanted to help the Diva’s division. Her being involved with some of us really did help the division grow because of her character and how much respect she had from everybody. She helped fight.” A Change For WrestleMania: “She always wanted to get involved with the girls. As far as in-ring work goes: she was the first one to want to get out there and learn exactly what to do. She wanted to make it the best possible by staying in character — doing goofy things in the ring, but more importantly, she wanted to take care of the person she was working with. I remember her being extremely nervous to do the Frog-Splash, which Layla and I renamed the Cougar-Splash. Originally, that was going to be Beth Phoenix, but that ended up getting changed for the night of WrestleMania — which really made Vickie nervous. When you start practicing with somebody you just get in a mindset, especially if you’re not in the ring that often. So the night of Hall of Fame, we all get called into the back, and we’ve already had our rehearsal, and they tell us about the change to the finish — she’ll be doing it to Kelly. Vickie was worried; about climbing the turnbuckle, hurting somebody, it not being perfect, but she did awesome!” Truly Inspiring: “She looks awesome! The transformation she’s had through the years is just inspiring. I can’t say enough about her: she’s a dear friend that I still talk to all the time. Love her and her girls to death — there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her. She’s a true friend through thick and thin. We will always be friends. Lots of great times on the road: lots of laughter, lots of tears, and lots of special moments shared together that I will cherish forever. I Love her dearly.” To Infinity…: “I think her career will be as long as she wants her career to be. I don’t think she’s going anywhere. I love when she’s in charge on TV because people hate it so much, and I don’t think there is anyone better.” Latest Pics of Vickie Guerrero in Bikini
