Maria Kanellis heading back to WWE?

Former WWE Superstar Maria Kanellis and her husband Mike Bennett may be heading to the WWE.

According to a new report from the Wrestling Observer (via SE Scoops), the pair have been ‘“very secretive” about where they are taking their talents next, which typically indicates WWE.

This moves comes after Mike and Maria’s year run with Impact Wrestling, where they captured the Knockouts and X-Division Championship respectively, before officially departing from the company in February.

Maria worked for the WWE from 2004 to 2010, debuting as part of the first televised Diva Search. She would later debut in Ring of Honor in late 2011 alongside Bennett, who was with ROH since 2008.

Would you like to see Maria and Mike in the WWE? How would you book their return/debut? Who would you like to see the pair feud with? Let us know in the comments below!

    Well I guess The Bella’s are mad lol. All the women they so called blocked a contract from all basically either returned or returning this year. But it’ll be cool to see Maria back. I’d like her to continue with the character she had on TNA. Can you imagine the promos she could have with Steph and Charlotte. Oh those would slay my life.

    • howie_ruhl

      Yes please. And there is always that dynamic of her being a non-wrestler coming into play. She’s very good at making people want to smack her just before she manages to get away without a scratch.

      • AllLashes

        She made the Allie character whatever it became. She can help other girls get over.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Right. I wanted to slap Maria so bad in TNA and it irked me when she got away free. Man she played the hell out that character.

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      If only Stephanie would allow a female to go over but knowing her pattern, she’d bury Maria or anyone else than isn’t Trish or Lita/Sable.

    • Maddox

      Not possible, Steph is already doing that so Maria would always look beneath her

  • K. W. M.

    Honestly? No! There is now the so called womens revolution and now all the old divas suddenly want to come back to jump across the board? To harvest what they have not build up?

    • AllLashes

      These same old divas have said time and time again they fought for more TV time, more opportunities, gave ideas but management didn’t listen.

    • What? Those Divas suffered all the bad booking so the current women could get there. Not their fault they were in an era where they were turned down every chance.

      • While Maria has proven she is a compelling entertainer I would prefer female wrestlers being the ones getting contracts and opportunities, not entertainers.

        • I’m here for everyone, wrestlers only aren’t gonna make them money and Maria is a proven name in the industry.

      • K. W. M.

        Bring back Katie Lea or Jillian or Victoria, then i would agree. But Maria? Kelly?

        • Maria and Kelly were both more popular than Katie or Jillian so I don’t see why you would even question that choice. But like I said, I’m all for any of them returning if it means another chance to show what they got.

          • K. W. M.

            Because Katie and Jillian were not given any chance! They would deserve another run. Not those who already had it.

          • Neither was Maria, but that can be said for any woman of that era, even the ones who won multiple titles. I’m all for anyone to return if it means them getting a second chance.

          • K. W. M.

            The thing is what do they have to give? if Maria is not returning in ring, then i’m ok with it. If she returns to wrestle then she should go through the Performance Center like anyone else.

        • ralfikh

          Right! These 3 women been booked very lame.. Jillian is really good wrestler if wwe gave her worthy gimmick.. Katie Lea she got the whole package she need a second run w wwe(ladder match probably).. Victoria could be champion several time during her run w the new women at the time but no they use her as enhance talent..

    • Mark

      I’d rather have Maria come back and take up a spot with her flawless mic skills and ability to play characters then sit through Billie Kay and Peyton Royces basic matches and promos.

      • Dionte Brown

        Shhhhhhh too much truth. Maria was great in her role in tna. I always thought she sucked as a wrestler but when I heard her on the mic I was blown away. I knew it was scripted and she still made me want to punch her lol

      • K. W. M.

        What have Billie or Peyton, besides that they both are better in everything than Maria, to do with the post?

        • Mark

          Nothing childish about my comment. You have Billie and Peyton in your avatar who have been the poster girls for “generic” and “basic” since their NXT debuts yet you don’t want Maria back who may not be able to wrestle but can really add something to one of the brands with her awesome mic and acting skills.

          • K. W. M.

            It is childish, you disagree with what i say and you coume up with bashing my faves. And luckily the people here see it different, thats why people here love them and especially Peyton is a possible future star in the eyes of the diva dirt users, but it is not the first time you do that. Kinda trolling!

          • I’ve always thought he was a troll… ?

          • K. W. M.

            I remember him throwing such comments around, but i was not sure. So i replied to it, but it looks you are right :/

          • Even if he isn’t a troll his head is so far up his ass that there is no point of even trying. Some people live for drama. I live for sensibility and technical wrestling lol.

          • Mark

            Meh. It may come off childish or whatever I just think it’s dumb how you don’t want someone who can bring a very strong character to the table to return but you’re OK with Billie and Peyton’s basic performances. But whatever.

        • Lmaooooo you are so biased.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Ummm excuse me??? They are the ones who opened the door for this revolution…do not be disrespectful to the ladies who laid down the foundation for your faves to be successful

      • K. W. M.

        In what way have Kelly or Marie laid foundation for my faves to be succesful?

    • DivaFactz

      everything the women of today are getting, women from the past fought hard to get. So it’ll be rewarding for women like Mickie, Melina, Michelle and so many others from that era to come back and get another run and get exactly what they so desperately asked for. They deserve it!

      • K. W. M.

        So you think it is fair when the old ones are coming back, stealing spotlight from the current females who made themselves a name now?

        • ralfikh

          For me w/o the past wont b the present

          • BitchFit

            without maria we would have a better past (eg opportunities for jillian, katie lea, etc) maria honestly flopped hard.

          • ralfikh

            Jillian & Katie Lea is such waste of talent.. Both underutelize

        • Raekon

          They are actually sharing the Spotlight, not stealing it.
          Check Mickie James so far. She put Asuka even more over by losing to her, she lost to Becky to put her even more over and supported Alexa as her sidekick aswell.
          She also helped newbies down in the PC by Training them.
          Maria can give acting and character classes in the PC which would be VERY helpful to many down there and even some from the main roster. :)

          • BitchFit

            eg the flopped duo lol cant act to save their careers.

        • DivaFactz

          It’s called “Sharing the spotlight”. And you think it’s fair that the women from the past shouldn’t be apart of a movement that they help start. I saw if Mickie and Melina and women from the past retired and was ready to move on from wrestling and now all of a sudden wants to come back. No, they all very much can stay go and still have it in them to continue to wrestle, so why not bring them back.

    • John Finnie

      Wwe are trying to find a balance with female talent wrestlers valets it’s what worked in the past & wwe love the past

    • D<3

      maria is basically coming back to manage mike her husband.

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    Okay but I thought she quit wrestling all together to focus on her education???

    • jcott3

      According to Wikipedia (consider the source), Maria is slated to graduate from Johnson & Wales University in May.

    • lol. If WWE comes calling you…idc if you’re a freaking Harvard student, you drop everything and say yes. ?

      • jcott3

        Very true. Wasn’t Kelly Kelly a freshman in college when John Laurinaitis tracked her down and offered her a job?

    • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

      No hate, she’s just said multiple times on twitter that she was going can to peruse her educatiom haha

      • MK126

        Im pretty sure she said that cause Dixie Carter was in charge of TNA cause as soon as Jeff came back on board she said she wasn’t leaving LOL

  • Sam

    Good god no. Please don’t go back the E. Should’ve just stayed in ROH.

  • Sass.

    Mike Bennett is fantastic, and I think he deserves a shot in WWE. Him and Maria have great chemistry on-screen together.
    I wouldn’t be opposed to having Maria back. She’s really stepped up her promo game. I think she’d only occasionally wrestle, and be nowhere near the title.

  • Hoooshi

    I would like to see her back as a manager, either to Mike or someone else, she’s great on the mic. As a wrestler, though? No, thanks.

  • MK126

    Bennett will probably join NXT if he says yes which means Maria will be apart of the NXT roster which means she can get proper training at the PC instead of what she got at FCW. Like the supposed report of K2 signing a deal and being sent to PC before going to the MR im ok with

    • FCW wasn’t around when Maria was coming up.

      • MK126

        Did she train at DSW?

      • Don Prima

        Yeah. Only training facilities available were OVW and FCW. I don’t think Maria trained at either too.

        • Doni Potter

          Maria trained at ovw. She was also once apart of their booking team and this is where’s she and punk met when they started dating

          • Don Prima

            I had a brain fart. xD Of course she trained at OVW. She must’ve trained with OVW staff and was not actually apart of the broadcasted OVW roster.

  • Sebastián Muñoz

    Here she comes AGAIN like good medicine… (8)

  • While I was never a fan of Maria the wrestler, I have to respect Maria the person herself. She is very woke and aware on issues in the world, and speaks up unlike most other female wrestlers. She is also capable of playing a character and speaking on the mic. (Which she in fact does better than any women hired by WWE rn) I’d much rather have her over Kelly Kelly. But if they’re going to have Maria wrestle, then please have her go through the hurdles at Performance Center. Maria was improving and getting decent in 2007/2008 but then regressed so much and her run on SD was so bad wrestling wise.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Woke woke

    • Jorge Hernandez Moran

      I agree with what you said about Maria my only problem with her besides the wrestling us that she seems to like to slut shame other women

  • Luiz Giem

    I know this is just a rumor but OMG, YES PLEASE!

    Mike is a great athlete and deserves a WWE run and Maria is a very interesting character as manager so it would be nice to have her back along with her husband.

  • Raichu

    She had one of the best diva themes so I’m ready!

  • Would love this. Heel Maria would be interesting in WWE.

  • Dreignz

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Bellatrix Lestrange

      Yes!!!!!!

  • #BrieForPeace ?

    I can’t wait if this is true. Imho she was very underrated and never got to live to her true potencial. She was so over as a babyface and had this fire inside her and kept upping her game despite not being the best wrestler. With the PC she can only get better and finally prove haters wrong

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      SCRMMM

      • #BrieForPeace ?

        hum delete right now

  • martin rioux

    If she does that same type of character she’S been playing in TNA, then i say why not. Maryse is pretty much copying her anyway, why not bring the original version to WWE and start a feud with miz and maryse.

  • 3???????

    Hopefully as a manager. And manager only . She’s great on the mic but it stops there

      Bih i would die to hear that song playing ????? i welcome Maria back

    • Geek God

      Her legs go on & on for dayssssss!!! Shes at the top of her game, she dont know my name, the futures lookin brief, shes outta my league
      Look out, she’ll tear your heart out ???
      …She was never my fave when she was in wwe but somehow i miss her sooo much nowadays, at this point, i also wouldn’t mind hearing “so all my girls in the club so ho, cus you know just how we do” ????

  • howie_ruhl

    As a manager for Mike: yes. Let’s face it, the girl can talk. It would be interesting to see though how they plan to work around the fact that she was once this sweet, innocent and dumb girl. Perhaps they can work that in a storyline? Have her confess that she once had to dumb herself down just to fit in when apparently she is smarter than she seems? I mean, they do have material for that right? Like when she surprisingly collected her thoughts well enough to lambaste Bischoff?

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      They’ll gloss over it, noone really would care anyways. In her late days with the company she suddenly got smart and nobody bated an eye :D

  • HOLLA

    i hope so. despite many people she feelings, Marian has proven to be hard working and passionate to the business.

    • Pearlita Marie McGee

      who’s marian

      • HOLLA

        Lol sorry Maria

  • AllLashes

    If Alexa Bliss can be champion, so can Maria.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      LMAO, as if there is any substance in what you’re saying. They can’t really be compared.

    • Kessa Kez

      alexa’s punches are cringeworthy. you’d think she’d have learnt how to throw a decent punch but no.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        No there not her punches looks legit specially compared to others

    • Mark

      Alexa still needs time to improve but girlllll… Just no. Love Maria but she can barely take a back bump and can’t even execute a clean looking clothesline. Alexa is a great wrestler just needs more time to learn ring psychology. Not everyone “gets it” quick like McCool did

      • AllLashes

        How can you call Alexa great when you constantly say Naomi is bad?

        • Mark

          Because although Alexa’s matches lack solid ring psychology she has structure in the ring. Naomi hasn’t had that since her BAD days. Loved her ring work, mic work, look and everything way more as a heel.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Ok um calm down

    • Joseph

      LOL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Cilla

    As a manager only, that should suffice.

  • Kvngbalor

    Ill pass tbh if were bringing back past divas and it’s the trend give us Victoria give us Jazz give us Kharma give us Melina not another women who will valet rarely wrestle be casted on TD to feud with Bellas then repeat the Miz Maryse Nikki John feud months later cause we all know that’s where all this would lead to

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      My thoughts exactly.. I’ll take Jazz, Melina, Victoria, Gail over the Kelly’s & Maria’s.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      But some of those women you listed might not be as good as they was before I know Melina is but the others will need just as much training as the so called past “model divas”

      • Kvngbalor

        You tried it i almost didn’t reply Victoria is still in top notch shape and Jazz and Kharma are still working indies you can’t be serious Jazz and her husband actually have a school

        • LaurenYorkStan

          But as good as they once were…..I would love to see them back

        • jcott3

          Jazz is part of the big concussion lawsuit against WWE, so don’t get your hopes up.

          Victoria is 46 and would probably be used the same way she was the last 2 years of her WWE run: to build up and put over the next generation. That and she may not want to work a full-time schedule. While she was in TNA, she only did TV and PPV’s – no house shows.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Mike is a talented guy and definitely deserves a shot in the WWE.
    Maria has been a great manager for him, so I’d be all for them going there. Just keep Maria away from the ring.

    • Maddox

      Wonder how far he can go there though, Too big to be a cruiserweight and also not a world champion material

  • Would rather see someone else from the past, but whatever if she is just in a roll like Maryse or Lana.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    If you think this women doesn’t love wrestling than you are blind. She isn’t the best wrestler and she might not be in par with the talent today but she’s really good for wrestling TV. She’s never failed with her characters, the “dumb” Maria she played so well, the underdog Maria or the First Lady Maria. All of them worked, she got great reactions always.

    I would be amazinly happy if Maria ever shows up again at WWE. At her time she was one of my favorites and now her husband needs her, she’s that superstar element to him. I would love to see her interactions with Mickie, The Bella Twins & Maryse since they know each other so well.

  • #Hooligan ?
    • Bellatrix Lestrange

      I’m interested in seeing Maria and Mike in WWE.

  • wwepassion

    Please have her go to NXT for at least a year and a half or something.

  • Gato_wiska

    Maria should Bully Bayley…… She can make her very over.

  • aldo

    As a heel manager, but not as a wrestler, please.

  • hitesh khanna

    YES!! SHE DESERVES IT.. I can’t tell you, how much I couldn’t stand her in the last years of her WWE run, but when I saw her at IMPACT and saw her husband, dang there both on FIRE. like it or not but they both are fire on mic, hes actually a good wrestler, researched his indys, roh videos, and there both a hot couple.. Def love to see them at NXT, we need a female talented valet who can make her husband do wonder in NXT

  • Mark

    She’s ready. She’s ready to slay these basic bitches on the mic. I’m ready for her segments with Summer Rae and dreaming about them ?

    • Pearlita Marie McGee

      Summeriaaaaa

  • Asa Squirtz
  • glassjaw

    Another person for Nikki to feud with over reality TV drama?

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Petty lol

      • glassjaw

        No, genuinely curious.

        I mean, Maria opened the can of worms with the whole blocking contracts accusations to begin with. Now Maryse has used the fabled dirt as ammunition on TV.

        Listen, I think Mike Bennett is an incredible talent. He wholeheartedly deserves to be in WWE. Bring in Maria too; just keep her away from the ring is all I ask!

    • Lmao so true considering the rumors got started by Maria.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      That’s the first thing I thought about lol

    • CheapPops

      Last I heard Nikki and Maria made amends so I don’t think they’re gonna go down that route.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        It’s WWE so you never know..

        • CheapPops

          You got me there. I just don’t think it would make much sense since her claims would be proven wrong if she got signed to WWE.

    • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

      Maria is perfect for Total Divas. She’s likely willing to do anything on that show.

    • HC Duran

      Possibly, especially considering the speculation that several Divas are projected to return for the HOF, or after WM this year (like Beth Phoenix, Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, etc) in addition to Mickie James being back. They may expand the James vs Becky feud into a Divas vs Women’s Revolution arc, with Maria as one of the Divas.

  • Edwards1992

    Now all we need Cody and Brandi to come back.

    Smack down can have Miz and Maryse and Maria and Bennett..

    And on raw Russev and Lana, Cody and Brandi

  • LaurenYorkStan

    She reminds me of someone who loves art and musicals and would have a divine time at Broadway shows in this pic https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/aad9775b52fd0dd88ffe9397ff9c54a5465d857cff4547726a41a4b26d245ffd.png

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      Same

  • LeBoss

    Love Maria now more than ever.
    She could’ve used her fame to go to Hollywood like most but she showed her true passion for the business by staying and continuing to improve.
    There’s no doubt in my mind if she went back to WWE hopefully on the same show as Bliss, their verbal exchange would be borderline iconic

  • Timalee

    I’ll be honest, I don’t watch TNA and haven’t since around time Tara debuted. So whatever someone does in TNA, is oblivious to me. I kinda like it that way, cause then there’s a clean slate. We also should all know by now that, just because someone had a very successful run in one wrestling business, doesn’t mean they’ll do great in another. All depends on writers and if the crowd backs them up.

    Do I want to see Maria in the WWE again? Eh, I won’t be mad, but I also won’t be completely thrilled about it. If she does come back, I’d prefer her to, one, stay out of the ring competition. Two, stay out of the main feuds and title pictures. Unless if she has improved great leaps when it comes to her in-ring skills, then maybe, but even then I still don’t want to see her holding any title. If WWE was going to give her a title, the divas title would had been that title. These new titles (even though right now the Raw one is kind Blah to me cause of it’s booking) she doesn’t need to be part of.

    Now women who I think should come back and get a second chance and gain more of a legacy are:
    Kharma: It was like the biggest hype for women’s wrestling in a long time. Especially when she came back for Rumble. I think Kharma needs to come back and have a full run in WWE. Cause she deserves it and right now would be a better crop of women for her to work with.
    Gail Kim: Okay, I know the likely hood of this happening is little to not gonna happen. Especially after her 2nd run in the WWE. But I think WWE is at a better place with their women’s division that, her coming back would be good for the division and she can finally have like a legitimate run in WWE and hold multiple title reigns.
    Victoria: Let’s face it, it would be epic for her to return. The last couple years of her run in WWE was not but jobber and comedy clown. I think Victoria needs to come back and re-establish her dominance and have some runs at one if not both titles.
    Kaitlyn: It would be nice to have her back. She was my favorite and I felt her run was cut way too short. I feel she’d work great with this crop of women and can have much success with the titles.
    AJ Lee: Even though this is another very unlikely return, it’d be nice. She was very successful when it came to her first run. I feel she’d be a great add on to today’s girls. If this was to ever happen, I don’t want WWE to rely on her as crutch as much as they did in her first run. Cause they sure did over do her a lot.
    Cherry: Was released way too soon. Just when she was getting better and improving so much and I’m sure within another year she’d be good enough to had been in the title picture, especially with Maryse. I know it’s a very big long shot if her ever to return to WWE, but i’d love to see her come back even if it’s as a valet.

  • daniel maldonado

    bit of off topic news but it looks like wwe might be moving emma & summer to smackdown. i wouldnt mind seeing maria back and i think bennett shouldve signed with wwe in the first place rather than going to tna.

  • CheapPops

    As long as she doesn’t wrestle I’m all for her being back.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Truth be told : she is indeed a great talent. She knows her strengths and her weakness and is a great mic worker. Not to mention; her ability to play a heel character is great. Seeing more female managers is a great thing, with Lana, Maryse and possibly Maria, that would be very cool.
    Now, I am ONLY here for her possibly returning if it is exclusively about her working as a non-wrestling character (unless it is for some very rare big occasions). Her value as a wrestler is obviously non-existent.

  • brimode

    If they do come to the WWE, I want them in NXT. They’d fit in perfectly and we’ve never had a power couple in NXT, whereas we’ve got Maryse/Miz and Cena/Nikki on SD (as well as Carmella/James) and RAW has Rusev/Lana. So, I’d love them on NXT.

  • Ronnieboi_M

    I feel like WWE are bringing back certain female superstars as a way to keep star power in case the Bella’s can’t be there. Like all the women that were offered Total Divas season one, are coming back allegedly. I’m not complaining though. LOVED all these girls. Even though I’m happy with the current roster, there’s always room for more.

  • B1G_FaN

    Maria can feud with Eva Marie in the battle of the red heads with no wrestling talent!

  • ?too litty?

    I’m surprised Diva Dirt hasn’t reported about the rumors of Victoria making her return to the WWE as well.

  • MeddlingDiva

    Oooooh hell noooooooooo. Keep her away from the ring. NXT probably needs an female backstage reporter lol

  • Addy

    Maria and Kelly Kelly should like, stay away.

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      No

    • MeddlingDiva

      Agreed. No More Models

        Maria was never a model. She was a fan and then applied for diva search because she didn’t know another way in.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        Um get the fuck out of here with that dyke ass shit add some models I love some of the models turned wrestlers

  • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

    Wow umm

  • Good news and additions to the NXT roster or maybe they are heading to the main roster. If Maria return she must train on the PC, Bennett is decent enough.

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      Ok

  • Jo9834

    She obviously won’t be in the title picture, the WWE will probably use her in a Maryse type role which is fine by me. She’s great on the mic and has a past with the business meaning she’ll have some great interactions with whoever she and her husband feud with.

    If she comes back the WWE NEEDS to find a way to get Melina, Gail and Lita back for one final run.

    • jcott3

      I asked Lita in 2012 if she ever thought about going back to WWE to put a better capstone on her career (I get it that she was a heel so she wasn’t going to get the big storybook send-off Trish got, but the ho sale was below-the-belt). She said she wouldn’t mind doing a one-shot appearance like WrestleMania (like she did at Raw 1000), but she had no interest in a full-time return.

      • John Finnie

        Oh got a guy on FB who’s a well known reporter he said he knew why lita left or was let go & said it was NOT a definite but highly unlikely she will wrestle
        A shame in my opinion but wise as a legacy can be ruined in a 2nd run & no one really wants to see her out others over we want her to get over

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          “A shame in my opinion but wise as a legacy can be ruined in a 2nd run”
          I couldn’t agree more! This is something guys like HBK, Austin or even Lita understood from the beginning.

          • John Finnie

            Agree I watch mickie & think.. was it really worth coming back!!!

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I know right, even if it is just the beginning of her run, I can’t help but think how disappointing it has been so far and if it is really going to be worth it in the long run…

          • John Finnie

            Thank You!!! I thought it was me being a negative Nancy lol but maybe after Wm she may get a push but I can’t see it & I’m also sick of people saying movie is “past it: or she’s ” too old” when she is only like 4 yrs older than 3 of the 4hw & a few yrs older than 75% of the MR

  • Randall

    Wwe needs more female managers! I don’t want to see her step foot back in the ring at all!

    • jcott3

      Not every woman knows how to be a good manager. In the wrestling business, managers are usually given to guys who good in the ring but not so good on the mic, so the manager would act as a mouthpiece. Their job was to get the wrestler over.

      Vickie Guerrero was a good manager with Dolph Ziggler. Lita was also a good manager, as she was a perfect complement for the Hardys (sorry, Terri) and is credited with getting Edge up to the main event level.

      On the other side, you have someone like Stacy Keibler, who was undeniably popular but couldn’t channel that into who she was managing. She either stole the spotlight off of them (a big no-no for a manager) or she was paired with someone who didn’t need her.

  • Jesus’s brother

    If it is in a manager role, im okay with it… WWE keep her away from the ring

  • John Finnie

    It seems their bringing back woman who weren’t the greatest in ring workers to be valets like mayrse I can see KK being a manager of this is true Maria would suit that role as well & maybe have like 1 match a year… as long as it isn’t at the expense of the female wrestlers

  • I never had any respect for Maria. Call me a hater, that’s okay I’ll live– but her in-ring experience was dreadful. However, I loved what she did with TNA. Gave me more reason to dislike her, but in the way wrestling is supposed to.

  • StraightFire

    I mean as long as she stays a manager and never wrestles I’m good.

  • Loved her theme, hated her lol but liked her too lol If she’s grown then sure.

  • BlondeNightmare

    Let’s make another feud involving Bella Twins blocking a chance for other girls! This time it’s gonna be a tag team feud : Maria and Maryse VS The Bellas

    • Geek God

      Yes! Dont forget they blocked Kelly Kelly too

      • BitchFit

        they never blocked smelly kelly

    • It’d be nice to see Maryse and Maria run off Nikki until SummerSlam, have Brie have her baby, get in ring shape, have a tag match (hopefully they could put on a decent show), let Kelly Kelly come in and screw the Bellas over and have a throwaway match to blow off the feud so we can stop hearing this story, even if I do believe it to be true.

    • StraightFire

      Maria said they didn’t block her though and patches things up with Nikki. She said she was over the whole thing and wanted so I don’t think she’d want to do that kind of storyline.

      • Geek God

        Yes but for storyline purposes, she blocked Maria, Maryse, and Kelly Kelly, this can be a big storyline

        • StraightFire

          I don’t think it will be tbh. The big part of why Maryse and Nikki’s contract story works rn is because it’s not the sole focus and the Miz/Cena are involved.

          All those girls together is a recipe for disaster and people will bury the whole thing before a match even happens.

  • trishlita721

    I really really hope so she was so freaking entertaining in tna

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Let’s hope not. We need those nxt girls who can wrestle. And I mean wrestle. What’s the revolution if we don’t get the “matches”

    • MeddlingDiva

      All SDLive needs is Auska. There rating will surpass Raw, easily

    • trishlita721

      The problem is these girls don’t wrestle….. There are so many credible competitors who go through leaps and bounds years and years through development who are ready to go now. My God ruby riot has the look and can wrestle put her on raw with aliah liv mandy asuka ember there not perfect but the main roster is lacking.

  • PYM #TheRoadTo5

    I honestly wouldn’t mind her coming back to WWE. They have the room for more women. imo more women = storylines and focus on more women instead of just the 4HW.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Oh I really hope not I hate their gimmick it is so annoying to me. I also hate her acting in particular.

    • trishlita721

      Compared to what stfu

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Compared to my opinion so no!

  • Lushluke

    Please no I’ve never like her and never wikl

    • trishlita721

      How about learn to spell before commenting idiot

      • Lushluke

        I obviously know how to fucking spell will

  • I’m cool with this

  • Gato_wiska

    Maria made a star out of Allie, So Imagine what she can do to generic face characters like Aliyah and Liv. Maria can make everyone over even without having a match against her. Imagine her as Raw General Manager.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Liv isn’t generic her gimmick is just a mess. Maria can do this with someone like Aliyah. But seeing as how WWE handled Dana and Charlotte, the outcome of it won’t be too good..

  • Maria would be cool to see on NXT and I can see her also working with Billie and Peyton.

  • Radic

    For the record, if they wanted to bring someone back to do the ‘Emmalina’ character, I’d rather it be Maria than Kelly Kelly. Maria has the heel character down plus she’s overall more attractive.

    There. I said it. Come at me.

  • Keep her as a manager. I like Maria and all, but her wrestling, well, ahem, let’s just say I’d rather watch the Kat and Terri Runnels wrestle.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    NOOO

  • QueenSableBomb

    YAAAAAS I’ve always loved her non-wrestling self. I miss her! If she comes back I hope she’s a heel.

  • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

    I’d prefer Melina or Beth.
