While her former WWE family geared towards WrestleMania last night, Maria Kanellis embarked on a new journey — MMA. Kanellis made her debut for HDNet’s King of the Cage promotion as a backstage and ringside interviewer joining the broadcast team of Michael Schiavello and Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller.
Watch a few clips of her below:
Interestingly, I didn’t connect the dots earlier but the promotion’s TV events are produced by legendary reality producer, Mark Burnett who also produces the likes of The Apprentice and Survivor. Of course, Maria is currently on The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC which is also produced by Burnett. If I had to guess, I’d say that had something to do with her landing this gig — and if so, she must have made one hell of an impression on Burnett, Trump et al on ‘Apprentice’. Perhaps a sign that she will make it through to the end of the season o even win? Get it, girl!
