In Video: Former Divas Galore (and One Former Knockout) on Raw After Show

Several former WWE Divas — and one former TNA Knockout — came together last night for AfterBuzz TV’s Raw After Show.

Maria Kanellis, Jillian Hall, Ashley Massaro and Melina broke down this week’s episode of Raw which featured the WWE return of Wendi Richter and Cyndi Lauper. Joining the gang was former TNA star, Becky Bayless aka Cookie.

Maria obviously worked with Cyndi on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, infamously not getting along with her.

The women also discuss the roles of women in WWE and TNA. Pretty interesting stuff!

    ashley is either drunk or smacked up.

    • ricky_says_hi

      i think she had just gotten her lips injected with something. the lips swell up for a few days and then they’re fine. either that or she’d just been to the dentist

    • xxBettyBoopxx

      She was drunk if you listen to when the girls came in they said they got sushi and sake bombs.

  • jeremycanrana

    Ashley is really different I don’t even recognize her …I hope everything’s okay with her

  • xxQOXxx

    OMG what did Ashley do to her face?
    She erm was…merry wasn’t she.

  • Matthew

    I’ve never watched a whole episode of this before, but I have to say I really enjoyed this!
    Maria and Melina come across as so genuine – I miss them both in WWE. Becky and Ashley seem lovely too.

  • mykel1990

    I loved this episode, I LOVED Becky Bayless, she should be a regular. It was fabulous seeing Melina, Jillian, and Ashley. But I must say, Ashley looked and sounded like a, maybe she was sick, IDK, I was surprised to find out the WM 23 Divas Match almost didn’t happen, that just sucks, but I’m glad to hear of everyone doing well, and looking forward to the future. And seriously, make Becky Bayless a regular. Seriously, Afterbuzz, do it. lol

  • kristalmelinafan

    Wow Melina!!! Ashley was drunk or high as a kite.

  • gavin harvey

    wtf is ashley on

  • Rhawk

    Not sure why everyone is saying Ashley looked different, she looked the same but with a ponytail. That was probably it, she usually had long/short hair, never a ponytail, and with that she looked different to most people.

    Although I will mention that she must have either been drunk or on something, you could clearly hear something wasn’t normal about her here…

    • elsimate

      “Not sure why everyone is saying Ashley looked different”

      She has had a tonne of bad botox

      • xxQOXxx

        And she was slurring her words.

        • Rhawk

          That doesn’t make a person LOOK different, just sound different.

      • Rhawk

        Didn’t see it clearly in the video, maybe in future clips of her it might get noticed more.

  • Piggie James

    Quite an enjoyable show, especially since they spent so little time talking about Raw, and more about other more interesting topics (I doubt anyone really wants to hear that much about Raw anyway).

    I don’t think I would have ever imagined seeing those 5 women in a room together. I suppose Maria and Melina must have smoothed their problems over since leaving WWE (and as we all know working in WWE can be a toxic and stressful environment that brings out the worst in people) which is definitely nice.

    I actually was drawn to watching this because I wanted to see Ashley, since I haven’t seen her in ages. I don’t think she really looked that bad at all, but obviously her voice sounded a little strange (which could really be anything). Some people might think she was ‘on’ something, but maybe this is just her natural demeanor. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with what she was actually saying though. She just seemed to be a little emotional, which is understandable. Definitely good to see her.

    I thought Becky Bayless was tremendous here, and I still think it was a definite mistake by TNA not to rehire her. If they didn’t want her to wrestle, then I’m sure she could have contributed in other ways. Her personality really shined on this show. Wouldn’t be surprised if they bring her back again.

    I suppose the only problem with the show was that sometimes people were all talking over each other, but that’s not really any surprise. There was definitely some interesting material here (beyond the brief Raw analysis). I don’t think they really discussed the role of women in WWE and TNA all that much though. Certainly TNA only got a very brief mention. It was more about women in the wrestling industry in general.

  • SweeneyTodd

    Uhhh Maria & Melina in the same show. Melina hair cut looks terrible.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    hahahahha very interesting show, i loved it at times, then kinda felt awkward as well

    Ashley was definately drunk, and JIllian always seemed like she disagreed with MAria about whatever she said,

    But i think Melina would be a great trainer and i think Jillian is a little bitter about her run in WWE, and it was nice to see all these girls together

  • Nostalgia

    I hate Becky lol. How can you diss the Bellas? You wrestled 10 years and they surpassed you

    • Mr. Asstastic

      ikr lol.

      she and Maria can stay pressed.

  • Rhawk

    This show needs more Becky in the future, the girl was histerical. Not every episode mind you, just a nice cameo every now and again.

  • MattyM

    I love Becky’s Voice
    Did Ashley get plastic Surgery and was she drunk
    Jillian looks hotter then when she was in WWE

  • malejiva

    Ashley was definetly drun, and Melina’s hair looks weird lol.

  • MickieJamesFan07

    Ashley, leave the booze alone and lighten up on the botox.

  • number1AngelinaLovefan

    Great show. Please Afterbuzz make Becky a regular on the show,She is great addition to the show. Great to see Melina but she looked Asian with her new hair cut, Melina was so nice hear and really emotional but great to see her. Jillian my god did she look HOT! much better than she was in WWE, I also feel really bad for her she was obviously bitter with her run in WWE, but can you really blame her?? Ashley would NOT shut up when Melina tired to talk, God was that annoying.

    It was so great to see ALL of these women in the same room, Would of never thought this would happen….It was just great!

  • GailKim95

    I laughed so hard when the last caller called in and Jillian said “Who dis?!”

    • Mr. Asstastic

      Jillian stole the show, tbh. She should replace Maria.

  • AdrianRay

    I wished someone would have bitch slapped Ashley. Damn…

  • Looking Glass

    Oh my god this was hilar. Ashley seems to be shaping up nicely as the Missy Hyatt/Sunny of the future, I can’t believe she’s thirty and yet seems to have come out of it with the same effect of Joan Rivers. Aside from that, Becky’s strongest point has always been her words, I think she came off really well on this and Maria’s a great host, I’ve sniped about her in the past and although her wrestling return was questionable at first, I’m glad she got the opportunity to show wrestling fans there’s more to her and I think the conversation about people who just can’t ‘be’ babyface/heel was really interesting. Also, Jillian looks great these days given that only a few months ago she was being cyberbitched for ‘putting on weight’.

    A sidenote though, I swear when Afterbuzz’s post-Raw show first went out with Maria, Lilian and Candice it was in this really professional studio – what happened there? I think the conversations were good but at times it did seem disjointed in terms of fighting to talk. I hope they put more stuff out with Diva/Knockout alumni in future. Sucks they chose such a Diva-lite edition of Raw to cover.

  • LadyGoDiva

    I’ve watched afterbuzz and at times it entertaining and sometimes I agree with what Maria or what the other host day but Becky should make more appearances on that show.

    It was nice to see Melina,Ashley,Jillian and Maria all in one room which killing each other, lol.

  • Kessuki

    gotta admit this was hilarious and i personally never liked each and every one of them during their wwe/tna days thats most likely due to their wrestling, gimmicks and allegedly bad attitude. never been a melina fan but she came across incredibly well on this show. becky was on form here – she should be a regular until candice returns. if wwe allowed the divas to show their personality onscreen they would get over by themselves.

    once upon a time ago ashley was very pretty – damn she was a bit of a mess here and jillian didnt have anything interesting to add except her comment about pipers pit and her mole bitten off which was quite funny. :)

  • Trifecta

    I was actually the 2nd to last caller. I was really nervous and f’d up my question.

  • xx_swayme

    Jillian looks great since her return match a bit ago.
