WWE’s Michelle McCool knows time in ring is time to glorify God
The Following is interview from June 2007. Michelle McCool is a WWE wrestler/valet. She appears on SmackDown! on Friday nights.
Over the course of the last couple of weeks, Michelle McCool has been the subject of discussion amongst wrestling fans everywhere. Her recent push, as some may call it, has thrust Michelle into the spotlight, where fans of World Wrestling Entertainment from all around the world, took notice of the small-town girl, hailing from Palatka, Florida. Many are already well-aware that Michelle grew up in a home where wrestling was more than a sport, but a family pastime. A former all-star athlete, fitness and gymnastics competitor, gym instructor, and school teacher, etc… Just about everything Michelle had done prior to becoming a member of the prestigious WWE family, has helped mold her into the success story that she is now.
MM.NET: Many of your fans are well aware of your strong Christian faith; do you feel that God is using you, in the place that you’re in?
MM: I always feel like God is using us and gives us opportunities in our life to glorify Him. Not only is this a dream of mine, but hopefully I will be able to make a difference in other people’s lives as a result of this job.
MM.NET: If people didn’t know you, what would you most like them to know about yourself, that someone might not be aware of? MM: I get labeled alot before people ever get to know me. I am a very down-to-earth person. I love to laugh, make other people smile, goof off, dance, etc… I hate when people stereotype others. I try to find the good in everyone (honestly, you can ALWAYS find at least one thing great about everybody)! I live for sports and love the beach!
MM.NET: If someone were to go through your iPod, what songs would they find?
MM: Oh goodness….everything from alternative to country, rock to Christian, old school, etc…
MM.NET: How would you like to be remembered by wrestling fans?
MM: As good-hearted, all-American girl who always smiled and gave her best!
