YouShoot with Maria Kanellis - DVD Review

I’ve never really enjoyed shoot interviews from people who have been in the wrestling business for the proverbial five minutes, so when I saw that the latest in the Kayfabe Commentaries “YouShoot” series featured former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis I have to admit that I had as to whether this would be as entertaining as other releases in the series.

So thinking that this would be nothing more than Sean Oliver engaging in a girly chat I sat down in front of my television, and I was pleasantly surprised.

From the opening few minutes it’s obvious that we’re not dealing with the air-headed bimbo who entertained us with her backstage interview segments. This is a highly intelligent woman, passionate about the business she used to make her living in.

Maria comes across extremely well, and the ideas she puts forward as to how the Divas should have been handled made complete sense, although it shouldn’t surprise you that the powers-that-be didn’t think they’d get any mileage out of them.

The questions posed by the various fans across the internet are intelligent and thoughtful - for the most part. There are a few dumb ones, most notably about her previous relationship with a certain straight edge superstar, so let’s just say that I was never interested in his sexual prowess or the size of the gifts our lord gave him.

But in all this is a very entertaining interview, so it will come as no surprise to you that this Kayfabe Commentaries release comes highly recommended, and is the perfect addition to their ever growing range.

With thanks to the powers-that-be for supplying a copy of this release. YouShoot with Maria Kanellis can be purchased online at
