I would hardly call Maria Kanellis’s post-WWE career laughable. She’s followed her dreams and is doing everythinng she wants to do. Working in ROH is not “laughable”, either. Like Maria said, there IS life beyond the WWE. Some can’t accept that.
I DO NOT THINK THAT BEING PART OF ROH CAN BE SEE IT AS A LAUGHABLE STEP ON HER CAREER BUT I BELIEVE IS MORE OF A STEP BACK ON HER LIFE BECAUSE AT RING OF HONOR SHE ITS A POORLY USED WRESTLER JUST BECAUSE OF HER RELATIONSHIP WITH BENNET

WWE Viva Las Divas
I love good wrestling. From the comedy of Chikara, to the rising young stars of ROH, to the innovation of TNA and the majestic grandeur of the WWE. When done right, each company is a shining apex of beauty.
It’s no surprise that I’ve been a fan of the southern style for years. I watched Sting beat Ric Flair for the NWA World Title in 1990 as a three year old. Was a loyal WCW fan til the day it died, then I hitched a ride with TNA when they came around.
And just because I’m disenfranchised with the WWE now, doesn’t mean I’ve always been.
So even though I have my preferences, make no mistake that I’m as objective as can be.
So when I say this, it should be seen with no mockery or ill-will, but Hulk Hogan should go back to the WWE.
Hogan isn’t, on his own, worth it to TNA. If TNA was still WCW, then yes, they would have plenty to offer and rely on. But they’re not, and the extent of Hogan’s time in TNA, before 2010, was a short month in 2003 where he was THINKING of coming in. He has no history there.
But in the WWE, he has a lot of history. Hogan just did an interview where he says that a door back to the WWE is wide open, and that HHH apparently wants him back. He also says that for the right guy, at the right event, he would do one more match.
With Rock and Austin out, Ric Flair on the WWE’s bad side, Daniel Bryan not being the ratings guy they hoped for, and on that same token, neither has Orton, what a grand way to showcase WrestleMania 30 than with Hulk Hogan.
There’s been a lot of speculation about who should The Undertaker face at WrestleMania 30, which many expect to be his swansong. If Hogan only has one more in the tank, and Taker is getting ready to retire (strictly a rumor), why not do Hogan vs. Taker?
It’s the match Hogan would do; he’d be able to protect ‘Taker and vise-versa, not too mention what more of an iconic imagery of WrestleMania than Hogan and Taker, two standard bearers in pro wrestling, walking out together for their last hurrah’s.
You could also easily do both men in different matches too. Put Hogan in one and Taker in another, I don’t see how or why you couldn’t. Neither man would take away from the other, in fact it would be known as the WrestleMania that saw two of the greatest of all time walk away for good. It’s WrestleMania 30, it should be that big. It’s the super-show of the super-show’s.
So yes, TNA, let Hulk go back to the WWE. With Styles, Ray, Sting, Angle, Joe, Sabin, Hardy among many others, you won’t be hurt by it. Continue cultivating your own history, sign some more wrestlers with Hogan’s salary, and look to the future; like you once did. Bring back the idea of innovation, and be that company that everyone loved before Hogan’s arrival.
Let Hogan go and be Hogan in the WWE, it’s a win-win.
OF COURSE IT’S A WIN-WIN SITUATION
