As noted, former WWE Diva Candice Michelle recently appeared as a guest on the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

In addition to the highlights we previously posted from the interview, the longtime pro wrestling veteran also spoke during her appearance on the show about her real-life issues with Melina and how they nearly manifested in a legitimate fight between the two during a live match in the ring in WWE.

Featured below is an excerpt from the new Candice Michelle interview where she talks about this particular topic at length.

When things start firing off on Twitter, things can get bad. That’s actually how my match with Melina happened. Legit. We hated each other. We were legit gonna go into a real fight at a house show. Twitter had just started, we said something to each other and then we had a match. It makes for great TV. Any time there’s any heat or drama, Vince is incredible at taking that kind of stuff and running with it.

She just hated the fact that she came up with the indie scene and to wrestling school, she busted her butt that way. And to her, I was this pretty girl from Hollywood who just got lucky and got a deal. For her to wrestle against me was almost a disgrace for her. And she made that very clear.

Most matches I had with her I actually learned a lot. We also did an indie show together and I gave this motivational speech and told Melina, ‘I respect you because you pushed me to be better.’ She taught me how to work the crowd. As a newbie not going to wrestling world, I want to perform for the crowd. I want to be great. When you can dance, it’s really frustrating. I remember coming back from a broken nose and telling Lisa Marie Varon that she needed to stay away from my nose. Lisa told me if she needed to stay away from her nose than I’m not a wrestler. It was different working with Beth Phoenix because she would lay out all the spots and the flow was great.
