Maria Talks WWE Return, Surprising Rumors
Maria Kanellis spoke with SLAM! Wrestling about being contacted by WWE earlier this year and about the deal ultimately not working out. She touched on rumors about her deal getting called off over people not liking her. Below are some notable quotes:
"I did get contacted by WWE at the end of January, beginning of February, something like that, and for about a month, I was in talks with WWE," Kanellis said. "We talked about contracts, I had no problem with anything that was in the contract; but about a month after, they called back and said they weren't moving forward with the storyline."
"I'm friends most of the girls, I talk with a lot of them at least once a week if not a couple times a week, so I don't know where that comes from," she said. "I'm completely happy with WWE and I believe they're completely happy with me as well, so if that opportunity ever were to arise again and I wasn't locked up on something else, I would love to go back."
"I can't imagine them [The Bella Twins] being that immature to say something like that. This is a business world and I treat wrestling as a business as well as my passion. I just can't imagine anybody doing that and being that silly. As far as I know it was just a storyline thing.
"I was surprised (when she heard about the rumours). I get along with pretty much everyone; I don't have those issues. I had disagreements with people in the past, but I really worked hard to get rid of those disagreements. I really want to live my life with positivity. I don't want any kind of animosity out there about me. When I first got out of WWE, I was fiery and all that kind of stuff, but now, looking back, WWE was a great experience for me and I'm so glad I got to do everything I did there."
