Now, we all know what happened with the boys after the split (all three each became the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Ambrose became the Intercontinental Title and Mr. Money in the Bank, and Rollins cashed in his MITB briefcase @ WrestleMania to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champ, became the first person to hold the United States and World Heavyweight Championship at the same time, blah, blah, blah etc.)
about Maya? What happened to her?
Well, two years have gone by since Maya caught Seth cheating and
things haven’t been so easy for the former First Lady of The Shield. Seth continued
to try to fix things; sent flowers, I’m sorry calls and texts, a three page
handwritten letter, even tried to get some of the women in the locker room to
help him, but nothing worked.
only spoke to him when it was necessary (during matches, interviews, promos,
etc.) and she started traveling with The Bellas, which caused friction from Roman and Dean. Not at Maya, but towards the man that hurt the
woman that they had become incredibly close to.
After the disbandment, she maintained a close friendship between Ambrose and Reigns, occasionally being placed in mixed tag matches with them. Maya breaks AJ Lee’s record as the longest reigning Divas Champion after 298 days and then lost the title at Survivor Series to Nikki Bella.
She was scheduled to win the title back and become a 4-time Divas Champ at WrestleMania 31.
Then one night in a dark match with Nikki Bella after Monday Night RAW, she suffers a terrifying spinal injury after performing a Swanton Bomb over the top rope, landing her outside of the ring.
She suffered three dislocated discs and two fractured discs that required immediate surgery.
18 months, two surgeries, and two missed WrestleMania’s later, she’s back and ready to take on Charlotte for the RAW Women’s Championship at one of summer’s biggest event… SUMMERSLAM.
Everything is seeming to be going in the right direction for The First Lady; she is finally back on top and nothing can pull her down!
