Michelle McCool appeared on WWE television programming on numerous occasions since her retirement. However, McCool recently revealed that she was not invited to participate in the Royal Rumble match this year.

The Royal Rumble will go down in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas this year. Some incredible WWE Superstars are from the great state of Texas, including Michelle McCool. That didn’t seem to grease the wheels concerning a Royal Rumble entry.

Michelle McCool reigned as one of the top female superstars during the post-Ruthless Aggression era. She has battled the likes of top stars like Natalya and Mickie James and her most notable run was aligning with Layla as a part of their popular team “Lay-Cool.”

However, Michelle McCool retired from in-ring competition back at Extreme Rules 2011. She lost a ‘Loser Leaves WWE’ match to Layla, followed by a post-match attack by Kharma, ending her full-time run with the company.


The former WWE Divas champion revealed on Twitter that she was not approached by WWE to participate in this year’s rumble match, despite the event taking place in her home state of Texas.

“Sadly wasn’t asked this year! It is near my home so will prob still be there….just wandering aimlessly in the audience🤣.”

Michelle McCool was recently called out by Charlotte Flair as one of her dream opponents in the ring. Maybe an appearance at the upcoming Royal Rumble event could plant the seeds for this dream encounter between two of the greatest WWE superstars of their respective generations.
