Melina discusses her struggles with depression during her time in WWE

Melina is a three-time WWE Women's Champion, and a two-time WWE Divas Champion. After winning her second WWE Divas Championship, Perez became the first woman in WWE history to become a multiple-time champion with both the Women's and Divas titles.

Famed for her flexibility, utilized during her entrance and in her in-ring maneuvers, Perez was called "one of the best wrestlers in the world" by Bret Hart, and cited by WWE as having "perhaps the most impressive arsenal of offensive maneuvers in WWE history."

In the latest Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia, Melina discussed her struggles with depression during her time in WWE: “To me, the assault and the depression and suicide are two different things to touch base on, and how to deal with it.

What happened for me was more somebody caught me before anything happened in me. So when that happened, it was like the grace of God where somebody I cared about walked in and found me … I don’t really open up and talk about [the whole story] because one, I don’t people to imitate it and recreate it.

I don’t want people to do that action. It was during [WWE]. I think it was during my injury, my leg injury where all this stuff was going on, and I’m not wrestling. And all of a sudden I hated life. When it comes to the depression, when it comes to thinking about suicide, it’s a series of events. It’s not something that just happens."
