Now, we all know what happened with the boys after the split. Ambrose became the Intercontinental Champion, Mr. Money in the Bank, & the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Rollins cashed in his MITB briefcase @ WrestleMania 31 to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champ, became the first person to hold the United States and World Heavyweight Championship at the same time, and became The Kingslayer after defeating Triple H at WrestleMania 33. And Roman became a three-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a United States Champion, and retired The Undertaker at Mania 33.
But what about Maya? What happened to her?
Well, three years had passed 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.
She 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 broke AJ Lee’s record as the longest reigning Divas Champion after 298 days only to then lost the title at Survivor Series to Nikki Bella.
She was scheduled to win the title back on Monday Night RAW two months before WrestleMania 31 and be challenged by AJ Lee for a title match at the grandest show of all.
Then one night in the said title match against Nikki Bella, she suffered a terrifying injury after performing a Suicide Dive over the top rope, landing hard on her neck.
She suffered a broken neck as well as three dislocated discs and two fractured discs in her back that required immediate surgery.
Nearly 3 years, two surgeries, countless hours of rehabilitation, and 3 missed WrestleMania’s later, she’s back and ready to challenge Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship at one of the 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!
