Former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. on his podcast Wrestling with Freddie recalled the time The Undertaker scrapped all the plans for the Divas Title. At the time, Michelle McCool held this title. Prinze wanted her to drop the title to Awesome Kong aka Kharma at Royal Rumble. Also, he wanted McCool completely taken off of the title picture, for Kong vs Beth Phoenix to feud at WrestleMania.

Even though Prinze had permission from Stephanie McMahon, McCool didn’t like it. She started crying when she heard she would lose the title. She talked to Taker and Prinze found this from former WWE star Ezekiel Jackson.

The former WWE writer recalls the conversation with Jackson, “He goes well, Michelle said that you and her talk and she didn’t really like the story, so it’s gone. I said, was I supposed to ask this to her, I first say it was, I supposed to ask her like’. All this he goes for if she talked to (The) Undertaker and (The) Undertaker talk to Vince the stories go (es away).”

The Divas title meant a great deal to Michelle McCool, and she wasn’t happy about it. However, WWE canceled the feud Prinze planned between Beth Phoenix and Kharma after Taker talked to Vince McMahon.

Moreover, it shocked Freddie to learn that McCool didn’t like the story. Furthermore, he realized his mistake about ruining the foundation she laid in WWE. He stated in the podcast for not being proud of making this storyline without bringing McCool on the same page.
