Melina was one of the names rumored for the Women’s Royal Rumble this year and there had been interest in her since she returned for last year’s Raw Reunion special. She has also done interviews where she expressed interest in returning to WWE if they were interested.
Melina started in WWE’s developmental system in 2004 and eventually was moved up to the main roster in 2005 as part of MNM alongside her then-boyfriend John Morrison and Joey Mercury. She was considered one of the top female workers on the roster during the mid-2000s but her run came to an end in 2011. In recent years, she has been working some independent dates and she worked on some NWA Powerr tapings in the last year.
