Known By her nickname Greek Goddesses in the wrestling world, Maria Kanellis is busy managing her wrestler husband as his valet since 2011.
Her boyfriend turned husband is no other than current ROH Tag Team champion Mike Bennett, a heel character. The couple got married on October 10, 2014 cementing their long dating relationship. The couple is like a match made in heaven as both of them are athletes, good-looking people, confident and outspoken and most importantly, as they are totally in love with one another.
Previously, the playboy cover girl has dated ex-WWE superstar CM Punk.
Now moving on to her body configuration, she is not a tall woman with the height of 5 feet and 6 inches. However, her name comes in the list of few WWE divas who were successful to shine in a short period of time. Long toned legs, Shapely thighs and breasts, hot cherry shaped booty, appealing green eyes, well maintained weight (130 lbs.), nicely managed long hair ( natural color brown, now raid haired to dark purple) and winsome vixen face are all ingredients of her high physical sex appeal. Moreover, she enjoys a high net worth of 3 million US dollars.
Besides wrestling, the beauty pageant turned wrestler is interested in fashion designing and sports such as basketball, softball and volleyball.
In WWE she was always portrayed as a face character (sometimes innocent, sometimes dumb, or sometimes as a character who could speak up for herself). The only time she was portrayed as a heel character was in the year 2009 when she teamed up with Dolph Ziggler, a heel character.
Fans were already surprised by the management decision to change Maria, who was a fan favorite face character, to a heel (2009), and then when she was released in early 2010, fans couldn’t believe the decision. Many of WWE’s fans thought WWE heads lost their minds when 2009’s WWE Diva of the year, Maria got released in 2010.
So why was she released?
Basically, her contract went off. However, she was a hot property and everyone expected WWE to renew her contract. But, that didn’t happen.
From Maria’s point of view, WWE released her because she wanted to do something outside the ring and because of selling-rights issues.
So, what happens is if you are a WWE superstar and you are not few exceptions such as John Cena, you will get released or fired if you try to pursue aspirations other than wrestling. Maria was already popular outside of the wrestling world because of her 2008’s sensational Playboy cover appearance and other brief reality shows appearances in 2004-2009. We guess WWE couldn’t handle the notion that she went on to appear in Celebrity apprentice (2009).
That’s not it. She had other aspirations such as singing and designing as well. Clearly, the company didn’t want to indulge in future selling-rights issues (outside the wrestling) with Maria and Maria also didn’t want to do whatever WWE told her.
“I think that WWE looked at it like I wasn’t as interested in wrestling because I wanted to do more. I think that they got the wrong impression of what I was trying to do, as well as I got the wrong impression of what they were trying to do.” – Maria Kanellis in an interview
Interestingly, in an interview, Maria has claimed that she was the one who initially presented the idea of WWE produced reality show (like current WWE produced show like total diva) to WWE, but they didn’t took the idea seriously back then.
Speaking of Total Divas, Bella sisters are interesting characters, aren’t they?
Unfortunately, Maria and the Bella sisters (WWE stars and Total Divas main casts) previously had an inverse chemistry, but now we have been hearing they have moved on from the past issues. From what Maria has claimed previously, Bella twins were the ones who blocked her 2013’s WWE return.
An American national of white ethnicity, Maria is proud of her Greek heritage. Infact, her grandparents were originally from Sparta, an ancient Gree city with immense fighting heritage.
