Melina Reveals What Nixed Her WWE Return – Former WWE Divas Champion Melina was rumored to be making a return to WWE, but she never surfaced. At some point, there were plans for her to be brought on NXT as a member of the Robert Stone Brand but, apart from a reunion cameo, Melina was never brought back to television on a regular basis.
While speaking with Wrestle Talk, Melina explained that WWE asked if she would be open to come back, and everyone blew it out of proportion. She was like, “hell yeah,” but then they found out that Melina has a bad knee and can’t wrestle. That put an end to the situation.
“It was talks of [a return]. Talks of seeing if it was possible and all that stuff. Everyone made such a big deal out of it.
“I was in talks with [WWE], but I never signed a contract, there was nothing going on. Just ‘hey would you consider, would you be open?’. I’m like ‘hell yeah’. Well it turned out I have like a bad knee, and I can’t wrestle.”
Melina was quick to point out that she doesn’t know if her having a knee injury was the only thing stopping her re-signing with the company, as she questioned if she would have returned even if she was 100% healthy:
“Who knows if I didn’t have a bad knee if they would have signed me? Or you never know, if I had a good knee they wanted to see if I was open to it, but probably not get signed. That’s just the way wrestling is. It’s never a guarantee”.
Melina made a one-off cameo appearance for WWE on Raw Legends Night on January 4 in a backstage segment with Lucha House Party, but has not been with the company full-time since being released in 2011.
