During an interview on ‘Ring The Belle’, former WWE Diva Melina talked about her quick elimination in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match and whether it was a botch.

Here’s what the former 3-time WWE Women’s Champion had to say:

“Okay, I don’t wanna knock how people perceive wrestling but at the same time I’m like, I question you’re a worker and you thought I slipped, I really need you to reevaluate how you see things.

Because okay. So, I was protecting my knee always. I always do that. But when she threw me out I wanted to hit the apron first and then kinda fall out and go face first.

But when I hit the mat, I was like, ‘ugh’ and I then I thought I made it look fake, like I threw myself out. And I was like ‘oh, man!’. And I probably actually did but I didn’t slip.

So, having it look like I slipped actually good because it looks real in a sense. Because I thought I looked like I threw myself out.

But that was what was supposed to happen. She was supposed to dump me out and that’s it. So, I stayed in the ring longer than what they wanted me to.”

In another interview, this time with MuscleManMalcolm, Melina claimed that she doesn’t care if WWE never brings her back again.

Here’s what she said:

“Only certain personality types or the company’s chosen people are allowed to do that because we could bring back a Jazz, and they are the ones who enhanced Trish’s career. So there are people who made Trish look good.

There are people who enhanced her, who taught her that, who carried her through matches, they need their credit. If only we could bring them back, but we don’t wanna bring them back because we only have the people we choose.

Not so much I must say me, I don’t care if I don’t ever go back or not. I’m happy with any opportunity I get.”

After some time in WWE’s developmental promotion Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) and some uncredited cameos on WWE TV, Melina had her official World Wrestling Entertainment debut on the April 14th 2005 episode of SmackDown as the valet of MNM.

Melina wrestled for WWE until she was released in 2011, but 11 years later entered the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match as a surprise entrant, where she only lasted 53 seconds.
