– In a landslide, Maxine won WWE.com’s poll asking fans which former Diva they would most like to see return to the sports-entertainment organization. She tabulated 68% of the over 282,000 votes cast, beating such starlets as Stacy Keibler, Trish Stratus and Kelly Kelly. The former WWE Diva, who is now representing herself under her real name, Karlee Leilani Perez, was informed of the poll on Twitter this week and subsequently re-tweeted a number of fan messages complementing her performances for the company as well as messages calling for her return. One such message vouching for her return reads, “the #wweuniverse had spoken they want u back over other #wwedivas u got 68% in the poll. Hope see #wweMaxine ‘s return soon!”
In response to a message insisting that she return, Perez wrote, “I would love to show people what I can really do!”
Perez parted ways with WWE in June 2012 due to her belief that she was not progressing in the company, she subsequently stated in a media interview. Since that time, the 27-year-old has been appearing as a promotional model and actress. She has not appeared for any independent wrestling organizations.
