"He kind of courted me for a while, and people started noticing," she explained, adding that a few friends said The Undertaker "never talks to girls, like ever, that is not something he does." But he eventually took notice of her, and people started wondering if they were together.

At the time, Michelle said she didn't like "long-haired, tattooed guys," but she gave The Undertaker a chance.

The two eventually got together, but Michelle wanted to keep their relationship hidden: "We started dating, and I knew what was gonna come with that," she stated, adding that they hid their relationship for months because she wanted to "make people still see Michelle for Michelle, not for Undertaker's, at the time, girlfriend."

Once people in WWE discovered their relationship, they started treating Michelle differently: "I can literally count, on one, maybe one and a half hands, how many people treated me the same from WWE pre-Mark and post-Mark," she said, noting that many were intimidated and tried to "change [their] tune and be super nice."

"News flash, Michelle McCool didn't change," she added. "I'm not that type, I'm gonna call you for it because I haven't changed. I'm not acting any different. Like, don't treat me any different."

The Undertaker and Michelle tied the knot on June 26, 2010, and have been together ever since. They welcomed their first child together, daughter Kaia, in August 2012. They adopted their son, Kolt, sometime in 2021.

"I was simply enjoying a book on the beach when this 'vegetation' looked a lot like a shark," she tweeted, adding, "so I text [my] hubby. [I'm] kinda digging that last picture … A LOT #myprotector."

The first clip sees The Undertaker staring down the shark, and in the next, the creature swims away. Michelle could be heard telling her husband, "I guess I wasn't big enough to scare him away, but you are."

In a follow-up tweet, Michelle revealed it was "just a big, beautiful nurse shark."
