    Maria Kanellis Claims Current Divas Blocked Her WWE Return


    E! may wanna think about adding a new cast member to Total Divas, because this is reality show fodder if we ever saw it!

    Former WWE Diva-turned-Ring of Honor’s First Lady, Maria Kanellis — who was initially released by WWE in 2010 — claims the company made her an offer to return, but a certain Diva duo had her comeback nixed.

    Maria claims the Bella Twins, Brie and Nikki, “made sure” she wasn’t offered a new contract in a series of scathing posts on her Twitter account.

    The fiery redhead first wrote:

    The former Diva went on to respond to several fan questions, claiming she still has sources within WWE who informed her of the news.

    In one response, she wrote:

    Maria later ended the discussion by tweeting:

    As has been previously reported, Maria and a handful of other former Divas were approached about returning to WWE for a big WrestleMania match which was later nixed. (Ironically, the only Divas match on the card was also nixed.)

    At the time, Maria said: “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. 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.”

    Discussing rumors that the Bellas’ had her involvement in the bout nixed, she said: “I can’t imagine them being that immature to say something like that.”

    No comment yet from Brie and Nikki.
