Former WWE Diva Maria Comments On Her Future In Wrestling



Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis posted a blog on her Facebook account responding to those who feel she is not passionate about the wrestling industry because she no longer wrestles.

I want to make a comment about the wrestling world because a lot of people are saying that I’m not passionate about wrestling because I am not still trying to wrestle.

I was completely in love with wrestling and would have done it for the rest of my life if it had a retirement/family plan and fulfilled me creatively. I got into wrestling at 22. I never experienced anything except wrestling. Problem now is my niece is getting older and older. Watching her grow up made me figure out that someday being on the road 250/300 days a year isn’t gonna work. I did not want to get out of wrestling at 35-40 and then have to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. Also, I love acting and the 1-5 minutes on TV was no longer enough for me. I miss the fans and I still plan on coming back someday to the wrestling world. But I need to try things, experience things, and see what I really enjoy. I’m going to a Wrestling show on saturday because I miss that world.

For now though I am going to really find me. Spending time with friends and family, going to classes, a perfume line, yoga, a web series, a play, a movie, and more music until I know me. I don’t do drugs and I’m not a drinker so I can not drown my loneliness out. I have to face my life. I have to find where I belong. Maybe it is wrestling but I think it would have been unfair for me to stay when I was so confused and jaded. Now, IF/When I go back it will be for the right reasons. Passion is what drives me and that is why I still think about the amazing feeling of being on the top rope ready to jump. The fans drove me to jump and now I need to learn to jump on my own.

Thank you everyone for your continued support and who knows what the future will bring. Spanks and Kisses!!
