Maria Kanellis Reflects On Her Past Working Relationship In WWE With Paul Heyman

What was Maria Kanellis’ working relationship like with Paul Heyman during her time in WWE?

Who better to ask than the longtime women’s wrestling veteran herself?

Maria Kanellis recently appeared as a guest on “Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette” and spoke about this subject at length.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where she touches on this topic.

“It’s funny because I still work with him and I ask him stuff. I want his feedback. I want to know what he thinks. When I started in wrestling, I worked originally down in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Paul was writing the show. He invited me to come early, read the script, and see what he had planned out for other people.

“I was dating Punk at the time, so it was both of them that I was literally getting an education on wrestling, the history of wrestling, every part of wrestling I was learning from both of them. I’ve always had a fantastic relationship with him. Do we butt heads? Of course we do, but I think that’s what I like is that he is a person that will challenge me on something. He also thinks like I can conquer mountains, and so I do.”
