Melina is now on NWA Powerrr and pro wrestling fans are happy to have her back. She spent a good amount of time away from the business.
While speaking with Fightful, Melina was quite candid about why she left pro wrestling. She was in a relationship and wanted to devote more time to making it work. That meant pro wrestling needed to go away for a while.
“What I wanted to do, because I was in a relationship at the time—I felt like I needed to cater to my relationship and I wanted to be a supportive significant other and make sure that that person’s dreams all came true and that it was about them, and it wasn’t about me. I feel like, sometimes you need a person to be the rock and the foundation and the person at home while the another one goes out, and I’m not saying it’s impossible to do that two people set out and start their dreams and they go for it at the same time. But, I feel like since my personality type tends to nurture that I was going to take that role and then go back to school and do psychology, and so that’s what I planned on doing.”
Melina seems very happy to be back in the pro wrestling world. Fans certainly didn’t forget about her either.
