WWE released Mike and Maria Kanellis on April 15th. Now they are both free to take other bookings. Maria might not be 100% okay with how things ended with her former employer just yet.
Kanellis sent out several tweets which included things that she apparently heard from WWE during her time with the company. Some of those phrases apparently came during times when she was in the middle of a decision-making process.
In several tweets, Maria Kanellis revealed small glimpses of the kind of thing that WWE apparently told her to either convince her to re-sign with them, or to console her prior to their release. It’s unclear how these phrases were used, but Maria Kanellis credited WWE for them.

I am not spilling tea, spreading gossip, or ranting. I am giving the fans insight into what my husband and I were told/experienced. Period. If you insult me I will automatically block you. I am not arguing facts with people that were not in the room or are children.
Don’t you think you’d remember something like that. – @wwe
