In a blog on her newly launched official website, now former Diva Maria Kanellis had some positive words about her former co-workers putting over several of the girls. She writes:
I will however miss the Divas. They will forever be a part of my story. Mickie giving wrestling her heart, soul and a real teacher in the ring. Michelle with her dedication to the divas division is making it grow. Nattie with all the history and excitement. Layla giving it fire, humor, and is a great friend. Kelly the girl that is the beauty that has that same desire as me to prove herself in the ring. Eve is a fighter and can choke you out! (Eve I can’t wait to come train with you now that I have some time on my hands.) Beth, the foundation, sweet, strong, and a great listener. These girls and all the Divas are my inspiration. I admire them. I will keep watching you succeed. Thank you Ladies.
Maria has every right to feel bitter about her release but I love how positive she has been and these words will, I’m sure, mean a lot to the girls in question. Maria has been very gracious and good-natured in bowing out of WWE and putting over her fellow Divas is a really nice thing to do.
