Your Two Cents: Celebs at WrestleMania 29

“Your Two Cents” is our interactive feature where we gauge the opinions of our Twitter and Facebook followers on different discussions in women’s wrestling.

This week, we’re asking this: Rumor has it that Maria Menounos will once again compete at WrestleMania. We want to know: if you could put any other celeb in her place, who would it be? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!

Ahl Anthony Aggari | I would put someone from the Bad Girls Club. Mehgan James from Season 9 because she knows how to fight well. I really want to see the Champ defend her title to another Diva tho.
Angelique Winter Niharika | Beyonce. That would be so epic if that ever happen. Just imagine what her ring gear would be.
@AshtonIsAStarr | If I could replace Maria with anyone it would be Jillian Michaels. It would be much more of a fight than a spotty match. Or Honey Boo Boo’s mom! I think no one will be able to beat her! Cheeseballs anyone?
Brandon Bray | Drita from Mob Wives… Someone needs to go mafia style on Brie and Nikki Bella.
@Jaffney_Quinn | As crazy as it seems, I was always fond of the idea of Tiffany “New York” Pollard being a Diva when those rumors originally came out.
Jon Vega | If a celebrity is willing to actually commit to an actual run for months, I would love to see Michelle Rodriguez be a Diva. She’s already known as a tough chick, plus she looks pretty.
Her real personality can really stand out in the crowd of Divas.
Josue Guzman | Ronda Rousey simply beacuse her match against Liz Carmouche earlier this year was pretty intense and it did get a lot of attention for the UFC despite it being a women’s match.
Russell Williams | Gina Carano.
Sergio Earls | How about we get rid of Maria and set it up to where one of the real WWE Divas return like Kharma, Beth Phoenix, Maryse, or Melina.
Sitau Loa | Stacy Keibler. She’s former Diva who has reached star level outside of wrestling.
Spicey-Spice Donoghue | How about an ex-Diva that has made it to “Celeb” status? Not naming anyone in particular, just saying if you have to get a celeb in it would make more sense to get someone who is/was an actual wrestler. Too logical an opinion?

And now we turn it over to you…

What are your two cents on the debate? What celeb would you replace Maria Menounos with? Tell us in the comments…

    i’d like to see someone who is liked within the WWE universe or an ex-diva who has reached hollywood such as stacy keibler.

  • 3xplicit

    Anybody notice that the wwe divas title NEVER been defended at wrestlemania, and does anybody know the last time the womens title been defended at wrestlemania? Last womens title match I remember was Mickie & trish…

    • ajfan83

      Melina vs. Ashley

      • 3xplicit

        Smh that still was like 6 years ago

      • Jillfan1

        not memorable though don’t blame it should have been James vs Perez things started going downhill in 07=( overall we had amazing feuds no doubt but overall >——————————<

        • Kayfabe!

          Wrestlemania 1! Wendi Richter vs Leilani Kai! Lol

  • Mr. AJ Lee

    Some of these answers r so funny. Maghan from
    BGC? Nah get Christina from that season. She was WAAAAAYYYYYYY better than Maghan.

    • Matt

      Or or or, this season’s Shannon she actually looks the part.

      • Sitau

        lol doesnt rocky from this season look just like rosa mendes to you guys?

  • shannymac

    I’ve never really liked the idea of celebs actually stepping in the ring and wrestling, especially on PPVs. It’s always lackluster and boring. Maybe someone like Gina Carano would work, since she obviously has the athletic background and fighting skills.

    I’d honestly much rather see a celeb used as a manager or special guest ref. I would have no problem with Maria being involved if that’s all she was doing.

  • Jillfan1

    Celebs don’t help out ok maybe the whole Vince and Donald Trump but other than that even Drew in the H.OF. are you kidding me no we are cursed come on fans are dying to actually see a feud I don’t care i’ll even take Caomi vs the bellas that’s how much we are eager come on enough with the celebs tag matches 1 on one or something fatal 4 I bet anyone on diva dirt could be a better creative writer then again wwe drops storylines(potential good ones I suppose)

  • ajfan83

    The only ex-diva to achieve any sort of celebrity is Stacy, and she won’t get them any publicity unless they somehow got Clooney to be in attendance (which will never happen). Best name mentioned is Gina Carano. She is the real life representation of how WWE markets the divas “smart, sexy, powerful and is starring with The Rock in the next Fast and Furious movie. Way better fit than Menounos and less insulting to have her go over a diva.

    “@AshtonIsAStarr: Honey Boo Boo’s mom! I think no one will be able to beat her! Cheeseballs anyone?”

    Had me in tears!!! Lmao

  • k2evecrew

    New York would play a good heel manager , she could come & antagonize David Otonga since they have history together. Liz makes the most sense since she has a background in ufc

    • numero47

      I love that Tiffany/David idea!


      Whats happend with New York and Otunga?

      • k2evecrew

        He was on one of her dating shows I can’t remember which season & when he got married to Jennifer Hudson she was talking about him

        • numero47

          It was the second season and his nickname was “Punk”
          He made it to the final three which was pretty impressive

  • charovnica

    To be honest…I’d put anybody else that has an interest in being there as long as the person is not gonna be presented as a dominant figure at the end.The match should strictly go “I’m the vet here,you’re just a celebrity pretending to be a wrestler” make the face diva take care of the serious stuff if it’s so important for the face team to win.

  • Ryan

    I’m a different kind of person
    I don’t watch much TV other than TNA Archer Workoholics Simpsons and that’s about it
    NatGeo here and there, NBA, Fox Soccer and MMA
    Even then seeing celebs or ppl I know in wrestling isn’t u know, cool to me
    I did mark out seeing Arnold in 1999 beat the shit out of triple h lol

    I liked how I didn’t know who k-fed was until wwe brought him in. He’s the awesome Broski who dumped that bimbo spears haha!!
    And he was awesome in wwe!!
    He beat John Cena and threw money at him haha
    Then got his ass kicked and took a FU from Cena like a boss B-)
    K-Fed rocks! I wonder what he does now, that was like back in 2007
    My point is they used K-Fed to the fullest! It had a point. And it had a pay off it didn’t feel just thrown in randomly. Nomsayin? :D
    It had purpose for his being there.

    If wwe brings in celebs then use them right! Specially since it takes time from the divas!! :(

    • Mr. AJ Lee

      k fed has out on A LOT of weight sence then. U should google him

  • shameronstar

    Tamar Braxton because she would make the match! lol

    • Ryan

      Wow I’m 24 but freaken old school I’m not black but I love Toni Braxton – Who do you think i am?! But I chose to let him go – What are you thinking?! He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me!
      Haha she’s freakin sexy! Or was ;D

      They don’t make r&b music anymore I believe lol

  • Crazy_J

    I liked someones idea of Drita lol.. that would be great! I also love the idea of Ronda Rousey. I made a comment the other day basically saying if they are going to use a celeb, why not use an athlete that’s famous? She would be PERFECT!

  • Raekon

    There is NO NEED for ANY celebrities there and even if one should go there, they should have them at ringside or as special bell ringer or announcer but definately not in the ring.
    They have enough main roster divas for a 6 or 8 or even 10 tag.
    Given enough time and less restrictions, the girls could pull a mania worthy match.
    Instead, the management is wasting everyones time trying to add a celebrity in a match or the only ex divas that noone really needs in the ring (except of maybe Maria).

  • Kessuki

    i dont know how i feel about this because i love pop culture so i can think of quite a few women i’d like to see take part but in actual honesty i only want women wrestlers and not a celebrity in the match.

    however just to take part in the article i would love to see someone like Queen Latifah face off vs Tamina.

  • theprincedann

    Let lady gaga come in a meat dress and antagonise Daniel Bryan obviously because he is vegan..

    Imagine her chasing him round the ring pelting him with meat? Then he loses in 18 seconds again? Epic.

    The Wrestlemania already looks like the worst one in years so why not go down the humour route?

    • ajfan83

      Gaga is way out of their price range. WWE only gets trashy celebs or former stars that are past their prime. Funny idea, though.

  • theprincedann

    Eg- Snooki :)

    No i know Gaga wouldn’t do it. Her music is awful, but she is too successful to be doing things like this. The idea just made me lol though.

    I wonder who will sing the anthem? I loved Nicole Scherzinger doing it. I think Beyonce could do it well, or Gaga maybe.

  • aldo

    I read Beyonce (that would be amazing!) and Tiffany “New York” Pollard (I wouldn’t complain).
    But personally Beyonce. I loved the idea. It reminded me when of Layla in that Halloween Costume Contest. She can do it again :D

  • dsan

    Taylor Swift. I would love seeing someone beat her ass, even if she does win.


    I like kaitlyn but let her kick kaitlyn big ass!
