Melina Reacts To Bret Hart’s High Appraisal Of Her



The latest issue of WWE Magazine features an interview with Melina discussing her seven month hiatus last year from the squared circle, where she would rank herself on the all-time list of Divas, her high-pitched screaming, and more. She is also asked to comment on Bret Hart specifically naming her as one of the best competitors in World Wrestling Entertainment today and if she had any idea that the WWE Hall of Famer held her in such high esteem.

“Absolutely not!” Melina replied. “It was such a huge honor to receive such a compliment, but it also adds a lot of pressure to live up to that expectation.

“At first, I couldn’t believe Bret Hart even mentioning my name. I was like, “No, it must be a mistake. He meant someone else.” But it meant the world to me to learn that someone sees something in me.

“Every time I step in the ring, whether on Raw or at a live event, I try so hard to give it my all, because I don’t want to let Bret down. I don’t want him to see me make a mistake and think, “Oh, I wish I never backed her.”

During a November 2009 interview with Ministry of Slam, the self-proclaimed “Excellence of Execution” referred to Melina as his personal favorite wrestler, not to mention the best wrestler in the entire world.

Hart said, “I think there’s some great wrestlers in the WWE. I think Melina is really creative and imaginative, and she’s an innovator and she comes up with some great matches. I love watching her wrestle.

“In a lot of ways I think she’s the best wrestler in the world right now.”
