The McCool family unhappy with WWE for leaving Michelle off list of ‘greatest women to capture a title’

It’s Women’s History Month, and that means WWE media doing a very media thing and capitalizing on it in various ways that are easy to share on social channels. In this particular instance, WWE put together a long list of “some of the greatest women to capture a championship in WWE and NXT.”

McCool is often overlooked because she was at or near the top during a time when WWE was still treating the women on the roster as eye candy more than legitimate wrestlers.
