Maria Kanellis recalls the infamous WWE match

Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis recently reminisced about a memorable pudding match involving Candice Michelle and Melina. The match, which took place on June 3, 2007, at One Night Stand show, featured the two Divas battling it out in a pool of chocolate pudding.

Reflecting on the historic moment, Maria praised the resilience of the women involved and their impact on changing the industry.

".Just a reminder of the resilience of a group of women that had a major impact on changing the industry. We worked with what we had. We fought for more time. We built characters out of nothing all in tiny dresses and stilettos. We were tough. Giggling and smiling past inappropriate comments so we could make space. We did not like the spot we were in but it was all we had. So we made the most of it. To all of the women I had the pleasure of working with in that time, thank you, I love you, and I respect the undeniable strength you had to have," Maria tweeted.

Despite Candice Michelle emerging as the winner by making Melina tap out, the aftermath saw Maria conducting an interview with Candice before Melina attacked her.
