Details On Real-Life Tension Between Candice & Melina 
Story By: Daniel Pena 

Candice Michelle appeared on the Monday Night Mayhem radio 
show on 3/15 (audio can be found on AudioWrestling.com) and 
she had some things to say regarding fellow RAW Diva Melina 

Candice and Melina had recently engaged in a "blog battle" 
on WWE.com. It all started last month when Candice accused 
Melina of stealing one of her trademark moves in a recent 
match. Candice called the Inverted STF maneuver the 'Candy 
Clutch' whereas Melina called it 'The California Dream'. 
In Melina's next blog, she started off by saying, "I read 
Candice's blog, and I have to say I laughed so hard! Now 
that I'm officially on top, the jealousy is going to come 
out of the woodwork at full speed." In response to 
Candice's accusations, Melina said that she had been using 
the move for several years on the indy circuit before she 
signed with WWE in late 2003. At the time, the move was 
called the Kyrapractor after her character Kyra, which was 
one of the names she used on the independent circuit. Melina 
even made it a point to have a photo of her performing the 
maneuver while on the indy circuit posted alongside the 
blog. Melina then went on a long rant on how hard it was 
for her to make into WWE. Melina then switched the focus 
back to Candice by saying, "Candice Michelle, what wrestling
school have you gone to? How did you get your job here with 
WWE? Candice, do you actually think in that pathetic pea 
brain of yours that I want to be you? All you are known for 
is GoDaddy.com. Big whoop! That's all you got! I'm living 
my dream! I'm The Most Dominant Diva in wrestling, Manager 
of Champions and the Women's Champion! Yeah, as if I'd 
trade spots with you. I'm an athlete, what are you?"

         Random News From The Wrestling World

Considering that the posts were made on WWE.com, one would 
think that things being said were to help build conflict 
for a future storyline between the two WWE Divas. However, 
Melina is currently occupied in a WrestleMania program with 
Ashley Massaro. Also, Melina and Candice have yet to have a 
match or altercation on television since the blogs were 
made. And to further prove that what was being said was not 
part of a storyline, Candice noted in her interview that 
WWE refused to post her last blog on the company's website 
in which she responds to Melina's rant on her. In the 
unpublished blog, Candice said that she responded to Melina 
by saying that she's not in WWE just to be on television, 
but because she actually wants to be a wrestler. In the 
interview, Candice also added, "I would not stay in the 
cheapest hotels like the Red Roof Hotel and, and, deal with 
her bull***t backstage if I just wanted to be on TV. I live 
in Hollywood. I've been in Hollywood. I've been in numerous 
movies, commercials, you name it. I'm there because I want 
to learn to wrestle." 

Here is a transcript of what Candice said in regards to 
Melina. Also note, she wasn't "in character" at all in the 

Candice: But if you're more of you know, kind of the girl 
who's been doing a lot of modeling, um, or that kind of 
stuff, maybe the diva contest is better for you. But I mean 
the one thing that I always warn people about is you know, 
this is the hardest business to be a part of; To work your 
butt off for. It's not a beauty contest so don't come in 
thinking oh I'm going out for you know, Hawaiian Tropics 
contest and hopefully you know, I'll win this prize money 
and that's it. There's blood, there's sweat, there's tears. 
Um, it's actually funny because you know, Melina's been you 
know, doing these blogs that I've been blogging against her 
with on WWE.com and recently they wouldn't put up my new 
blog because of the fact of the WrestleMania and goes 
between her and Ashley. But she accused me of only being 
here, being one of the girls who you know, was in the 
contest, in this beauty contest and is just here to be on 
TV. And I just come back with the thing that my resume is 
longer than what she can read. And if I just wanted to be 
on TV, I would not fly coach. I would not rent my own car. 
I would not drive 200 miles Friday, Saturday, Sunday all 
the way to Monday Night RAW each day. I would not stay in 
the cheapest hotels like the Red Roof Hotel and, and, deal 
with her bull***t backstage if I just wanted to be on TV. 
I live in Hollywood. I've been in Hollywood. I've been in 
numerous movies, commercials, you name it. I'm there 
because I want to learn to wrestle. I wanna show the fans 
what I can do. I'm there because there is a purpose of what 
I can do. So if people want to get into this business just 
to be on TV, go to Hawaiian Tropics. If you're going to be 
here, you know, just come here and do it because you really 
want to wrestle and you really want to learn this sport 
because you're going to work your butt off once you get

OK first off Owen Hart was better than Brett any day of 
the week....WWI at that time wanted to push for Brett and 
let Owen be the bad guy.....i think WEE needs to give Owen 
the spot in the hall of fame....Owen was a great performer 
and all around good guy...to bad he had to go the way he 
did but when the man upstairs calls your name you have to 
go.....I say Owen Hart should be remembered as a Hall of 

- Quin 

Whoa!, Mike. Owen was no 2nd tier wrestler. He went through 
the paces in his father's dungeon just like Bret, Chris 
Benoit, Lance Storm, etc. Are you calling them all 2nd 
tier wrestlers, too? And as far as the HoF being for the 
"very best", please explain to me why Mean Gene Okerland 
got in there? I rest my case. 
- Tim

Hey Mike, you said "The Hall of Fame in all sports is 
reserved for the very best." Really? So Pete Rose and 
William 'The Fridge' Perry are the very best in WRESTLING? 
Last time I looked, they were both 'Legends'! Hornswaggle 
can beat both in a handicap match!  Sure, Owen was mid-
card but he was entertaining in his prime.  His feud 
with Bret was the best run of it's day and anyone who 
DIES IN THE RING should be given a free pass to the Hall 
of Fame.
