Maria Menounos To Wrestle At WWE’s SummerSlam Event
Maria Menounos will take to the squared circle on Sunday to compete at the WWE’s SummerSlam Event at the Staples Center.
At the Fan Axxess event that serves as a preshow for the pay-per-view battles, Menounos will partner with Natalya to battle against the Bella Twins, reported the Los Angeles Times. In 2011, the actress and entertainer had teamed up with Eve Torres, Kelly and Fox and defeated both her partner and competition this time around – Natalya and the Bella Twins.
When Natalya first floated the idea of bringing Menounos back into the ring at SummerSlam Axxess, the Bella Twins seemed none to eager to face down the Extra host again. Despite their protests, Natalya made it happen. Referee Brad Maddox confirmed the matchup on Twitter.
Menounos made her WWE debut in 2009 with Kelly Kelly and Gail Kim. The trio successfully took down Beth Phoenix, Rosa Mendes and Alicia Fox. Her last event was in 2012 at Wrestlemania XXVIII, where she defeated Phoenix and Torres with Kelly. “ All we need is Maria Menounos dropping by WWE… Again,” the Twins tweeted. “Hhm how about you do your job and let us do ours."
SummerSlam airs Sunday, Aug. 18 at 8/9c on PPV.
