– Maria Kanellis was displeased with being groped by a spectator at Saturday’s Ring of Honor Best in the World 2012 event in New York City. Following the event, she tweeted, “Thank you New York for coming to see Mike Bennett and myself. But the guy in the front row that grabbed my bum, I will have you thrown out next time. You are a pervert!!”
The former WWE Diva continued, “I am not to be touched, ever, by a fan weather I am working or not. It’s gross. I am not a toy. You pay to watch, so watch. Don’t touch. The only person that can touch is Mike Bennett. From now on you will get thrown out. thank you…”
Kanellis was asked late last night whether she misses WWE. She responded, “I’m the FIRST LADY in the greatest company in the world. No I don’t. I’m all grown up.” Hours later, she was made today’s spotlighted Superstar on WWE.com. She then wrote, “Thank you for the spotlight… WWE.com. A LADY deserves the spotlight…”
