Maria Kanellis takes a shot at Vince McMahon

WWE has had to contend with a new rival company in the past two years. We are obviously talking about All Elite Wrestling, which has upset the balance in a business that has been screwed on itself for too long. Tony Khan's promotion staged his first show, 'Double or Nothing', in 2019.

Since then, the company led by Cody Rhodes and Chris Jericho has shown great potential, despite the pandemic having forced it to stage shows without an audience for more than a year. AEW is considered by most fans as a valid alternative to WWE, also thanks to the sudden drop in ratings suffered by the Stamford-based federation in recent years.

The numbers of Monday Night Raw are anything but exciting and the tendency to rely on part-timer veterans has not gone down to the fans. It is no coincidence that numerous former WWE stars have moved to AEW, including The Big Show, Mark Henry, Andrade, Aleister Black and Jericho himself.

For the past few weeks, it has also been rumored that CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are about to sign a contract with All Elite Wrestling. WWE President Vince McMahon has not expressed concern about the recent developments, claiming that AEW is not a real contender for WWE.

Maria Kanellis isn't happy with Vince McMahon's recent comments about AEW. The former WWE Diva has lashed out at him via her official Twitter handle.

Maria Kanellis, victim of the wave of releases in recent months, expressed all her disappointment listening to the words of her former employer.

“Wow. Think of humans as if they were pawns on a chessboard. It must be one of the most elitist things you have heard in recent times. I could never think of mothers, fathers, children and people in that light. People have to be treated as such, playing with their life is cruel,” she wrote on Twitter.

Kanellis has had two runs in WWE, the last of which ended in April last year. Since her release, Maria has been throwing several digs at her former bosses. Maria Kanellis certainly wasn't the only person who wasn't happy with Vince McMahon's comments about All Elite Wrestling.

Tony Khan's promotion presented its first show, Double Or Nothing, back in 2019. The company has been doing quite well since then despite the pandemic forcing it to hold shows without an audience for more than a year.
