Maria Kanellis Addresses WWE Return Rumors, Randy Orton Appearing In St. Louis, WWE Classics
– It was reported in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Maria Kanellis, who appeared for WWE from 2004 to 2010, was among the former Divas contacted by organization officials to return. The possibility of a comeback, however, fell through when some unspecified female talent learned of WWE’s interest in Kanellis, causing management to shelf the idea.
In 2011 and 2012, Kanellis hosted an online show for AfterBuzzTV.com discussing Rawevents, which was most notable for her cryptic remarks regarding the personal lives of Kelly Kelly and The Bella Twins. Regarding the report and past remarks, she tweeted Thursday, “As for the other rumors: I have respect for all Divas including the Bellas and Barbie now. What’s past is past. #oneloveonelifeladyfirst.”
– Randy Orton is appearing at the St. Louis Comic Con at the Americas Center in St. Louis, Missouri, today beginning at 5:30 p.m. Details on his appearance are available here.
– Currently airing on WWE Classics On Demand is a WWE event from March 19, 1990 at Madison Square Garden. WWE has posted a preview clip from the show of the Ultimate Warrior defending the Intercontinental Championship against Mr. Perfect.
