Source: Monday Night MayhemFormer WWE Diva Maria Kanellis appeared on Monday Night Mayhem, which airs every Monday at 7:00 p.m. Highlights from her interview are as follows:
The importance of giving back to the Make-A-Wish Foundation as part of her return to Nashville for Crossfire Entertainment's benefit event on August 20th: How excited in Maria for the event in Nashville, Tennessee coming up on Saturday August 20th: "I'm so excited to do it, because I always enjoyed doing the Make-A-Wish Foundation events. I did it when I was on 'Celebrity Apprentice, and I made some money for them when I was there. It's just an incredible foundation. I'm excited for the event."
What she feels has been her key to success since leaving the WWE and succeeding in areas that others have failed: "I'm hungry for knowledge. I'm hungry for success. I'm hungry for what comes next. Once you lose that hunger, it's when you fall short and you go stale. Maybe it's not the easiest thing in the world. I tried music, and I love music. I love to write, but maybe that's not for me. I'm going to keep going with it and see what happens. But at the same time, I'm doing that. I'm doing something different everyday."
Why she believes that CM Punk resonates with today's fans and why now is "The Era of Punk": "I think Punk is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, in wrestling right now and for a while now. I love The Rock, and I love 'Stone Cold,' but right now is 'The Era of Punk.' He's incredible. I'm so happy for him to be doing exactly what he enjoys doing, and that's to be honest and to be straight edge. I think it's incredible for him. Punk does not care about the show. He does not care the pyro, and the fanfare, and 'Let me put on a fancy suit and let me look perfect everywhere I go.' What he cares about is wrestling. He cares about the wrestling business. He wants integrity in the wrestling business, and that is why it resonates with the fans. A lot of people care about the fanfare of it all, but they forgot what is wrestling is truly about."
