Maria Explains WWE Release, Says She’s Open To TNA/ROH

Matt Boone

Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis recently spoke to The Sun website about her WWE release and the possibility of her still being involved in pro wrestling in the future. Kanellis stated:

“I had such a great relationship with them. I did a lot of charity work, a lot of signings and appearances. I had even just come over to the UK doing a huge tour talking about the WrestleMania Revenge Tour that’s coming up.

“I can’t wrestle for the rest of my life, but I would have liked to do it for five or six years.

“I had been in talks with WWE about my music, my contract was coming up and I was just trying to make sure I was protected.

“The release came as a shock, but basically it comes down to that I wanted more rights and they weren’t willing to give them to me.

“It wasn’t a money thing or anything like that. I think we left on good terms. It was a great experience while I was there, I love all the Divas.”

Maria, 28, added: “I’m thankful to WWE and Vince McMahon for giving me so many great opportunities, but at the same time I am disappointed in how they released me.

“They didn’t even give me time to call my mum.
