Former WWE Women's and Divas Champion Melina may have shot down rumours about a return to the company, but don't be fooled. 2020 is no ordinary year, and the pro wrestling business is no ordinary world. With a draft around the corner, what price a return to the WWE TV for one of the most controversial female performers in recent history?
Melina's first run with the company was as notorious for backstage stories as it was onscreen successes. Initially booked as part of the underrated MNM trio, she eventually broke out as a singles star, bounced back and forth between heel and face roles and picked up titles in the process. Bret Hart called her one of the best wrestlers on the planet, but he was one of the few to have positive words to say about the Paparazzi Princess.
Her time was wrought with catty accusations and rumours of heat, of unprofessional behaviour, and a worrying penchant for allowing backstage disagreements to make their way to the screen no matter how damaging they may have been to her career. Melina was a bright star that often threatened to burn everything in its path, with former boyfriend John Morrison seemingly dragged along for the ride. Love, you cruel mistress you.
It remains to be seen whether Melina will return to WWE or not, but there are an abundance of things that both parties will look to leave in the past if she does find herself on WWE TV once more.
