In her first exclusive interview since leaving WWE last month, former WWE Diva Maxine, real name Karlee Perez, talk about her time in the company and her decision to call time on her time on her wrestling career.
The full interview with Karlee, logging in at an hour, will be available tomorrow (July 23rd) but for now, we have an exclusive sneak peek to tickle your tastebuds!
Maxine’s profile on WWE.com has been removed from the NXT talent index after the Tampa, Florida native announced Friday on Twitter that both parties have come to terms on her contract release. The profile now resides in the Alumni section. WWE, however, has not released an official statement regarding her departure from the organization.
It looks as though people in WWE are also seeing what we’ve been seeing in Maxinefor months: She’s amazing!
WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes took to his Twitter page to praise the NXT standout star and general manager of FCW.
He wrote: “Stand out nite for Maxine in FCW last night , she should b big star bound!”
Maxine has also proven to be a triple threat in WWE on NXT.
Maxine is back, and apparently she’s a woman on an important mission. But what exactly does this vengeful, fiery former NXT Rookie Diva from Season 3 have in mind for WWE NXT Redemption?
During week 24 of competition, Maxine made a shocking return to Tuesday nights, viciously attacking a vulnerable A.J. from behind moments after A.J.’s beau, Hornswoggle, and Titus O’Neil were taunted out of the ring by Derrick Bateman. Following the attack, Bateman revealed that Maxine was his new girlfriend and “soulmate.”
A confident Maxine proclaimed to the WWE Universe that Hornswoggle couldn’t handle “a real woman” like her, so he settled for “something less, like A.J.” She then threatened to cause even more problems on WWE NXT, stating she and Bateman were “just getting started.”
The former NXT Rookie Diva certainly wasn’t lying. A week later, she dominated A.J. in singles competition, and while Bateman cruelly shoved Hornswoggle down onto the ringside floor, Maxine capitalized on her distracted opponent. rolling her up for the victory. Their celebration was cut short when Hornswoggle’s NXT Rookie, O’Neil, angrily stormed into the ring, but NXT’s wicked new couple didn’t seem fazed. On the contrary – they were pleased with themselves.
Maxine has quickly made her presence known on WWE NXT Redemption, and so far she’s helped her boyfriend, Bateman, earn a victory over archrival O’Neil. But for how long will her antics be tolerated? Sooner or later, a WWE official has to notice she’s interfering in matches to help Bateman advance in the competition. Will it eventually affect the couple’s game plan? And where has Bateman’s WWE Pro, Daniel Bryan, been throughout all of this?
