Diva dreams continue
Although Rebecca DiPietro and Maryse Ouellet did not win the 2006 $250,000 Diva Search, neither is complaining now. DiPietro was hired by WWE to attend Deep South Wrestling (DSW) in Atlanta. She’s currently preparing to relocate to Georgia to find an apartment and to take part in training.
“I’m stoked, that’s what I wanted,” said DiPietro in a phone interview. “I think I’m made to work for WWE. I think I have what it takes to be a Diva, and I’m not surprised [that she was contacted after being voted off].”
Maryse Ouellet, the second finalist eliminated in the Diva Search, hasn’t officially been hired, but was invited to observe workouts and the training facility at Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) from Aug. 13-17. Although she understands there’s no guarantee that this will lead to full time employment with WWE, she’s grateful to have been given another opportunity to live out her dream.
“I can just cry, [is] my feeling right now,” Ouellet said. “I’m very excited. It was very, very good news.”
Brooke Adams, who entered the Diva Search but was cut before the eight Diva Search finalists were selected, will also be reporting to OVW.
“I cried because I thought my shot was over, and I thought I was going to have wait until next year [the 2007 Diva Search], but surprise, surprise…I’m back!” she laughed.
She was surprised to get a call from a WWE representative, but now she’s refocused and ready to get her training at OVW underway.
“I can’t wait. I’m so excited; I think about it everyday.”
