While it has been reported that Maria Menounos could return to the ring at this year’s WrestleMania in an Eight-Diva Tag Team match, that wasn’t the original idea, according to a report from PWInsider.
The first match idea, which has since been nixed, was for former Divas to face off against WWE’s current crop. The former Divas penciled-in were thought to be Brie and Nikki Bella, Kelly Kelly, Maria Kanellis and Maryse. They would then have faced off against Divas Champion Kaitlyn, Layla and three other current Divas.
The article also mentioned that soon-to-be Hall of Famer Trish Stratus would have managed one of the teams.
The match was axed after negotiations with the former Divas broke down or stalled, rights to the character names being cited as one of the reasons for that. So far, only the Bella Twins have made a return to the company.
