Maria Kanellis Happy She Wound Up Leaving WWE

Maria Kanellis recently spoke with Between the Ropes about her rumored WWE return last year that fell apart. Check out the highlights:

On why it didn’t happen: “Here’s the thing. I was asked to go back last year (to WWE). It fell through and that is all I know. I mean I had heard lots of other things. I had heard other things from different people. But at the end of the day, the fact is I didn’t go back. So no matter what happened and who knows, I mean I don’t know nobody knows what really happened. But I didn’t go back and I’m very happy to be at Ring of Honor. So, I apologized to the Bellas for everything that happened and that was it. I talked to them (the Bellas) and decided you know what, water under the bridge and that’s it. I guess I could be angry forever, but I’m not going to be (laughing). Because there’s no reason for it. I don’t want to be angry or upset because I don’t know.”

On why it was a blessing in disguise: “It totally was (blessing in disguise). I realized that within a month of it happening, I realized how much of a blessing it was. I don’t know if I want to be on the road 300 days a year. I don’t know if I want that anymore. I really enjoy my time at home and I enjoy going to school and I enjoy seeing my fiancé at work. I don’t know if I want that life anymore. So maybe some part of the universe decided you know what, you don’t really want that life anymore. I loved WrestleMania, loved travelling the globe and it was great, fun and exciting, but I’ve done it. So for me, this is exactly where I should be now. I have no hard feelings whatsoever with anybody. I just want all women in wrestling to succeed now. I’m getting married later this year and Big Daddy V passed away and that was so tragically sad. I just have no desire to angry, no desire whatsoever.”

    Typical lily-livered I-Can’t-Hack-The-Schedule bulls**t. When did pro-wrestlers become so wimpy?

    Y’know, I was watching the Ric Flair Highspots shoot a few months back and he was talking about how rough it was being on the road in the 70’s, eating food that resembled toxic waste and sleeping on beds that you could develop skin diseases from for 3 hours a night.

    Think about that.

    Botcher, out.

      yeah, and look where most of that generation ended up, crippled, criminal, suicidal, drug addicted or staying on the road till they keel over. Theres no dignity in the lifestyle, it chews you up and spits out a corpse, especially in those days. Maria works part time, attends college and is getting married, girl is happy. Why should she wreck herself touring all year? she did it, she moved on and shes happy.

      When did they become wimpy? when did you gain the right to criticise how somebody spends their life?

      Try being positive, not a b*tch

    To be fair I don’t think maria really classify herself as a wrestler. She was more of a valet than a wrestler.
