Maria Kanellis Loses FWE Women’s Championship, TNA Star Crowned New Champion

As we reported last month, former WWE star Maria Kanellis won her first championship in wrestling on her 30th birthday at FWE in New York.

Last night, however, in her first title defense, Kanellis lost the belt — but not to her advertised opponent, TNA star Rosita.

Instead, Rosita’s fellow TNA Knockout Winter (who Kanellis defeated to win the belt) made a surprise appearance at the show, attacking Maria and wriggling her way into the title match, making it a triple threat match.

Winter defeated Maria and Rosita to win the gold, ending Maria’s one month reign as champion.

The former Knockouts Champion attacked Maria after she hit her patented bulldog on Rosita, and then stole the victory.

In more FWE news, another former Diva, Melina, is due to appear at next month’s show and will challenge Winter for the title.
