Michelle McCool Reveals Who Pushed For WWE To Create The Divas Championship



Michelle McCool spoke highly of the WWE Divas Championship while doing a recent interview on Busted Open Radio.

She revealed that she and Torrie Wilson were the ones who pushed for the creation of the title.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Wanting the title on SmackDown: “You get (an idea) rejected and another one might go to somebody else, and that’s just how it goes. You kind of expected that. When you have that expectation of, not that it’s a great expectation to have, but, ‘we’re probably not going to get this, it’s probably not going to happen.’ Once you have that, you get pleasantly surprised when it does. I never shied away, I would literally lay out the cities we were going to be in, draw out six week storylines, we fought so hard to get a Divas Championship belt, a Divas Championship on SmackDown.”

Title design: “So many people talk about how ugly the belt was, how it was a disgrace. I wouldn’t have cared if it were a garbage can around my waist. (It was) something to fight for. I don’t care if it was a butterfly belt. It never stopped me from fighting. it was discouraging and it was hard and sometimes you do want to throw in the towel, but what is the point? Where would that get you?”

Who pitched the title going to SmackDown: “I pitched it a lot, a whole lot. Torrie (Wilson) stepped in and helped. I pitched the idea bringing a title to SmackDown and just wouldn’t give up.”
