Well in 2004 she was actually in the WWE's former developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), but I'm counting that.
Before Melina was in the WWE, she was on the Indy circuit, wrestling for promotions like Empire Wrestling Federation, where she was said to be one of the best female wrestlers they ever had.
After being released from the WWE in 2011, Melina went back to her roots and has worked for wrestling promotions such as Women Superstars Uncensored, Lucha Libre USA (LLUSA), World Wrestling Fan Xperience (WWFX), Family Wrestling Entertainment and World Wrestling Council's (WWC).
How good is Melina?
Well Michelle McCool said in an interview that:
"We got in trouble for our match at Night of Champions. We got in trouble for our match being quote-on-quote "too good... for girls."
I always wished they would have pushed Melina's submission wrestling angle a bit more in the WWE.
Okay...I REALLY wanted to see an "I Quit Match" with Melina and Gail Kim.
But barring Melina going to TNA...I dont guess I'll ever get to see that happen....
