maria kanellisSteven Muehlhausen of BetweenTheRopes.com recently talked to Maria Kanellis from Ring Honor to preview the company's event tomorrow night in Chicago. Kanellis discussed the rumored return to WWE last year and why it was a "Blessing In Disguise” Not Ending Up In WWE Last Year.

Kanellis on the rumored WWE return that didn't happen last year:

"Here's the thing. I was asked to go back last year (to WWE). It fell through and that is all I know. I mean I had heard lots of other things. I had heard other things from different people. But at the end of the day, the fact is I didn't go back. So no matter what happened and who knows, I mean I don't know nobody knows what really happened. But I didn't go back and I'm very happy to be at Ring of Honor. So, I apologized to the Bellas for everything that happened and that was it. I talked to them (the Bellas) and decided you know what, water under the bridge and that's it. I guess I could be angry forever, but I'm not going to be (laughing). Because there's no reason for it. I don't want to be angry or upset because I don't know."

On why it was a "Blessing In Disguise" that Kanellis didn't end up back in WWE:

"It totally was (blessing in disguise). I realized that within a month of it happening, I realized how much of a blessing it was. I don't know if I want to be on the road 300 days a year. I don't know if I want that anymore. I really enjoy my time at home and I enjoy going to school and I enjoy seeing my fiancé at work. I don't know if I want that life anymore. So maybe some part of the universe decided you know what, you don't really want that life anymore. I loved WrestleMania, loved travelling the globe and it was great, fun and exciting, but I've done it. So for me, this is exactly where I should be now. I have no hard feelings whatsoever with anybody. I just want all women in wrestling to succeed now. I'm getting married later this year and Big Daddy V passed away and that was so tragically sad. I just have no desire to angry, no desire whatsoever."

Kanellis also discusses the momentum Ring of Honor has had in 2014, relationships in wrestling and much more.
