Dirt sheets believe that Sara Del Rey was signed to help WWE with their problem of ‘model’ Divas quitting the company. In the past year multiple Divas have left due to frustrations with the way Divas are treated and how they themeselves are treated.
Last year it made waves when model turned Diva Maryse left the company. Maryse was offered a 5 year extension to her contract but refused to sign it, due to her feeling Diva restraints and multiple injuries she recieved throughout her career. She was employed from 2006-2011 and is now starting her own fashion line ‘House of Maryse’/ still modeling on the side.
April 2012, The Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie) another set of ‘models’ turned Divas left the company. The Bellas were given the opportunity to sign an extension to their contracts but refused due to them being ‘tired and exhausted from the road’. They were employed from 2008-2012 and have multiple projects including a NFL project this season.
June 2012, Maxine another model/actress turned Diva left the company. Maxine was mostly known for her standout performances on NXT Season 3 and NXT Redemption. She also appeared 1 time on Smackdown, 2 times on Superstars and Raw. She was in developmental since 2009, but was finally in Diva status in 2011, she is now presuing acting and has been attending meetings in New York.
Kelly Kelly, has been on ‘personal break’ since May this year – rumors have been spreading about that she may not be returning. Kelly as of late has been traveling about with her boyfriend Hockey player Sheldon Souray, and has recently relocated to Malibu, California with him. It has been said Kelly has been seeking offers for scripted and unscripted reality shows and has been thought of for ‘Big Time Rush’ on Nickelodeon. Kelly is still employed with WWE but has been working there since 2006.
Many believe that WWE has signed Sara Del Rey to ‘beef’ up their Divas division just incase some ‘modelesque’ Divas decide to leave. Others believe that along with performing, Sara may be assisting in training the current WWE Divas.
Karlee Perez, formally known as WWE Diva Maxine gave hints on Twitter following her official release statment, that she might in fact be heading a different direction in the entertainment field.
she wrote: ” To my fans you may not see me on the WWE screen but on another. I want to do nothing but get the real chance to entertain all of you…sometimes you have to make that chance for yourself!! “
Karlee also took the time to adress rumors that she may be hopping over to Impact Wrestling with the following statment: “I’m not going to another wrestling company that is not in my plans!!! I didn’t ask for my release to go to another company.”
It was reported on June 28th that WWE Diva Maxine quit the company, the fans were frantic over this shocker. Many believed Maxine was the future of the Divas division and would be a future Divas Champion.
The reason behind her release according to dirt sheets was she was not happy with her spot in the division and was furious with the fact she was not guarenteed a spot on the main roster. Maxine appeared on two episodes of RAW, one competing alongside Natalya against Divas Champion Layla and Kelly Kelly. The second being the Bikini battle royal where she was eliminated first by Alicia Fox.
Fans did not know the truth until June 29th when Karlee Perez (Maxine) wrote on Twitter that she indeed did quit WWE. She stated on Twitter “We have come to terms on my release. Its been a ride I want to thank @wwe for the experience and understanding on my feelings. Its not easy saying goodbye. But there are other options at which I can do….”
Maxine was under a FCW/WWE contract since 2009 and is well known for causing drama and bring excitment during the 5th season of NXT entitled Redemption.
It is being rumored that WWE has offered Kelly Kelly (Barbie Blank) a long term contract. Ever since Kelly ranked on the Maxim ‘Hot 100’ last year, and ranked even higher this year she has been a hot item for everyone. It is said WWE feels Kelly is their most marketable Diva and wants to ‘lock up’ this deal fast.
It should also be noted rumors that Kelly Kelly’s agency has been looking for reality and scripted shows under her real name Barbie Blank.
Kelly Kelly has been missing from WWE screens since May 21st, where she competed alongside Divas Champion Layla as they took on Maxine and Natalya in a winning effort.
It has been said Kelly has asked for a break from the WWE due to her traveling full time since the age of 18.
Many fans don’t know when or if Kelly Kelly will be appearing on their tv screens any time soon. She has shared on Twitter, she has been vacationing with her friends and her boyfriend, hockey player Sheldon Souray.
