Wrestling INC: And so you haven't spoken with them or anything since this whole thing happened, right?
Maria: They called me, I was busy. I sent her a text back. I said there's nothing really to talk about. I know what the story is and God bless you for it. I hope everything works out. There's no real reason to talk to her. She's not worth my time. She took something from me and it wasn't a man, or it wasn't a piece of candy, it was a contract. It's my career and I think for me, that's probably the worst thing you can do, is mess with my money. I'm not going anywhere. I'm in wrestling. I'm staying in wrestling and I'm sure our paths will cross again.
Wrestling INC: Why do you think they prevented your return? Do you really think that they felt it was not good for business? Or do you think it's something more there?
Maria: Something more there, because it wasn't just me. There was three of us all together that lost our contracts. We all three had been talking to WWE for a while. I'm not going to name names. It's not my choice. It's not my business to name names, but three of us lost contracts. So, I think it's insecurity. I think it's jealousy. That all comes out. You see it on the Total Divas show. You see it when you're watching Monday Night RAW. You see it. It is what it is.
I'm a grown woman. I don't deal with that high school crap and I have no interest in doing it. I would never stop somebody from getting a job. I might not like somebody, but I would never do that. That's paying my house payment. What are you doing? You don't do that to somebody. It's not like you're stealing a best friend where there's two people that are making that decision to be insulting. You're taking away a contract. I only can take care of myself. That's all I can do. I'm not going to mess with someone's money.
Wrestling INC: Was this contract for a short term deal or a full time return?
Maria: No. It was a three year contract. It wasn't like, "oh, we're going to bring Maria in for one show." No. It was a three year contract.
Wrestling INC: So do you think a return is possible as long as the Bellas are there?
Maria: I don't know. In wrestling people leave and come back all the time. That's the name of the game. No one's ever going to like everybody. Everybody can return at some point. Everyone has that possibility.
Wrestling INC: Do you think that their input had any effect on Mike Bennett's tryouts earlier this year?
Maria: Who knows? You never know with that kind of stuff. I hope not. I really hope not. But still, it's bad how things went down. It's really silly. I always say it, I'm sleeping with a million dollars, or a hundred million dollars every single night. He's money and eventually he will be money on WWE. That's just how it goes and I truly believe that.
Wrestling INC: You mentioned other divas. I know you've had heat in the past with like, Kelly Kelly. Have you patched things up with her?
Maria: I've apologized to her in person. I've talked to her. There's no reason to hold onto past events, especially when they were five years ago. It's silly and I've grown up since then. It has to do with being young and we all make mistakes when we're young. That's fine. I don't want to hold onto that. There's no reason to.
