Former WWE Diva and Slammy Award winner, Maria Kanellis, was backstage at last night’s Raw taping in Anaheim, California.
Maria noted on Twitter that she was visiting friends. She wrote: “Backstage seeing some old friends at Monday Night Raw!!”
Kanellis recently returned to wrestling after a two-year absence following her release from WWE in February 2010. She is due to make her in-ring return next month for FWE in New York against TNA’s Tara. The former Playboy covergirl has also joined Ring of Honor as the valet for real life boyfriend Mike Bennett and is being dubbed the ‘First Lady of ROH’.
Following her release in 2010, Kanellis criticized the way WWE used its Divas, as well as the control they tried to wield over the Superstars and Divas’ outside projects. You can hear some of Maria’s revelations in an interview conducted with Diva Dirt in April 2010.
