Maria Kanellis Discusses ROH’s Status, WWE Using Twitter & More
- Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis recently spoke with the VOC Wrestling Nation in Philadelphia. Here are some highlights:
On ROH’s status: We have already surpassed TNA. We are bringing in new stars and making celebrities out of them. We have the top stars in the world.
On the YES chant: That was started over 2 months ago at ROH; we were surprised that it took that long to catch on there.
On why she came back to wrestling: I took a year off and got the itch. I have always had passion for wrestling; I watched when I was a kid.
On getting released by the WWE: John Laurinaitis called and released me the day after my birthday. I was starting to do more mainstream things and they didn’t want to give me a pay raise. There were tons of opportunities elsewhere. They didn’t want to give me the opportunity to do other things.
On Twitter: I want to come through the screen and strangle Michael Cole. He is not the person that should be talking about trends. ROH is more concerned with who is seeing the show than who is talking about it on Twitter.
