– While Melina has worked hard to repair her image in the locker room over the past few years, some wrestlers are still leery of her as they feel she is overly dramatic and often tries to make herself the center of attention.
As noted, Melina caused several wrestlers to roll their eyes in reaction to her recent complaints about being moved from RAW to SmackDown. The WWE Women’s Champion is once again dating John Morrison. With the draft coming up at the time, the two reportedly asked to be placed on the same brand together. Nonetheless, she was complaining to other wrestlers about being moved to SmackDown and got rather emotional following news of the switch on the Draft show.
Backstage, many feel she had to know that WWE weren’t going to place her and Morrison on the same brand as Batista given the past issues the three have had. Batista noted in his 2007 autobiography, Batista Unleashed, that he had a physical relationship with Melina during their time together on SmackDown.
“It’s not like she’s been an angel all these years,” said one former co-worker regarding the situation. “She’s disposable. It’s not like she’s in a position to bitch.”
Many company sources believe Melina has yet to actually complain to management regarding the switch to SmackDown. Another source referred to her complaints as “eye-rolling” and said most people have taken a “Who gives a s***?” approach to the drama.
