Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis spoke with Slam Sports out of Canada about the rumors surrounding her potential return to the WWE leading up to this year's WrestleMania event. Rumors had been circulating for months prior that WWE was reaching out to former Divas about a possible return, to build up to some sort of storyline at April's big event.
"I did get contacted by WWE at the end of January, beginning of February, something like that, and for about a month, I was in talks with WWE … We talked about contracts, I had no problem with anything that was in the contract; but about a month after, they called back and said they weren't moving forward with the storyline."
She also denied rumors that stated her WWE return was nixed due to a feeling backstage that other Divas did not want to work with her.
"I'm friends most of the girls, I talk with a lot of them at least once a week if not a couple times a week, so I don't know where that comes from. I'm completely happy with WWE and I believe they're completely happy with me as well … I can't imagine them being that immature to say something like that. This is a business world and I treat wrestling as a business as well as my passion. I just can't imagine anybody doing that and being that silly. As far as I know it was just a storyline thing."
