Former WWE Diva and current Ring of Honor valet Maria Kanellis recently spoke to BetweenTheRopes.com.
Her 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."
Why it was a "blessing in disguise" that she 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 traveling 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."
