Maria KMaria talks to PWMania.com about CM Punk, ROH, NXT, and much more!

Former WWE Diva and first Lady of Ring of Honor, Maria Kanellis recently took some time to participate in an exclusive in-depth interview with PWMania.com. Maria spoke on a variety of subjects from her favorite wrestler growing up, the CM Punk and WWE situation, WWE & NXT’s Divas, her future and more. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Favorite Wrestler Growing Up: My favorite female wrestler was Lita. I think it’s incredible to know she’s getting inducted this year. She gave me a strong female role model. My mom was a great woman, but my dad was always the king of the castle, so to speak. Lita was a strong female and did what she pleased and I admired that.

WWE & NXT Divas: I think they have great female talents nowadays. AJ and Natalya are great wrestlers. Paige in NXT can hang with any of the guys there. So I don’t think WWE is lacking when it comes to women talents. I hope the girls get more and more time to get into the spotlight because of how good they are becoming. Continue reading

Paige 2Recap courtesy of LordsofPain.net:

New WWE Divas Champion Paige spoke with The UK’s Independent about her big win over AJ Lee on Monday’s RAW. She commented on what it was like to get the win:

“Oh my gosh, you have no idea. I lost my mind. Firstly just being in the ring with AJ who I’ve always looked up to, she’s an incredible talent and a woman to be around, and then being on Raw is just insane. I’ve been working my whole career to get to this point, it’s been nearly nine years now, and it was just incredible. I couldn’t stop crying, I haven’t stopped talking to my family about it, it’s overwhelming especially getting so much support from the fans and backstage. It’s been magical.”

Below are highlights, courtesy of TNA Asylum:

Her thoughts on the TNA product:
“Impact Wrestling has really shaken things up. You see a lot of new young talent that they’re trying like Ethan Carter and The Wolves who are really great additions. Ethan, I’ve worked with in WWE when he was in NXT and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this guy has a lot of charisma.’ I was shocked to see him be released, but that was a blessing in disguise for us because we got a hell of a talent. I think people are going to see us invest in younger talent and new faces and really just try things and see what works.”

This is the semi-final match in the WSU International J-Cup tournament.

Heather PateraKayfabeKickout.com recently interviewed Heather Patera, former WLW ladies champion and daughter of WWE star Ken Patera!

Here are some highlights.

Heather comments on whether it’s vital for female pro wrestlers to have a certain look, to be more important than having raw wrestling talent.

“I think WWE has forced people to think women should look a certain way. Like a “Diva.” Some of the best talent I’ve seen isn’t “Diva” quality. Tattoos, piercings, a few extra pounds, Mohawks you name it. These women are themselves when they walk out that curtain, gives the fans something different than a 115lb cookie cutter half wrestler, shoot I’m sitting at 160lbs 5’4 definitely not your typical TV female wrestler. These are women who mix their lifestyle with amazing talent. I LOVE SHIMMER for that. Its not cookie cutter. Its based on talent not looks.”
