DVD Review : You Shoot With Maria Kanellis

July 31, 2010

Maria’s release from the WWE was one of the more surprising firings in 2010, It would set a trend that would later see Mickie James released while sending a firm message from the WWE to its talent…If you think your going to take your fame and roll it into success outside of the ring then you better give us complete control over it otherwise take a hike. Now a free woman, Maria made one of her first post WWE stops in the hot seat known as the You Shoot, which as you probably know by now has established itself as the no holds barred shoot interview for the fans.  As Maria reveals in this interview, she considers chances like this “Wrestling Therapy”,or in other words her chance to blow off some steam and move on from the WWE. With an admission like that it should be a give in that she is a great candidate for the You Shoot seat.

Despite the fact that she had just recently been released by the WWE, throughout the interview Maria does not come off as intentionally bitter, or intentionally timid in her responses to the questions, she comes off honest and to the point, which is somewhat refreshing for a recently released WWE star in a shoot interview format.

As the interview goes along you learn that Maria  may have played a bit of a ditz on WWE television, but in reality she is the complete opposite. A down to earth, smart woman who could of helped the WWE so much but because she’s  a woman, the limitations held her and other divas back. This is evident when she shares her thoughts on a variety of topics, such as how the divas have been used at recent wrestlemanias, why the guest host idea was overkill, why the divas are not marketed properly and why the WWE drops the ball on using opportunities like her musical project to create bigger prescence in the mainstream culture.

Meanwhile the marquee You Shoot games are featured, including Maria revealing whose racks are real and whose are fake in the Divas lockerroom, Discussing which male roster members were the biggest dicks and Maria playing the Guess the wrestling playboy playmate game.

Although Maria may have gotten into the wrestling world through what many wrestling fans and critics consider a joke (the diva search) After watching this interview Maria showed that if your willing to work hard at it you can become a good mind and a decent worker. This installment of the You Shoot series may not of been crazy and over the top (with the exception of the disturbing video submissions from the Off The Mark Crew) But this installment was great for the honest and playful nature of Maria.

Oh and for the pervs out there who probably don’t care about how honest Maria is or what happened during her run in the WWE, Maria drops a line in the shoot saying “Sometimes I like to play with myself” For that line alone Im sure you’ll be satisfied.
