In WWE Pushed to Punished, I analyze the controversial careers of past and present WWE Superstars that were once in the good graces of management but ultimately met their downfall for one reason or another. One individual who fits the bill to perfection and has eluded the series up to this point is none other than Melina.
The only other Diva to be featured in Pushed to Punished before was Beth Phoenix, so I figured it was only a matter of time before another one of WWE's lovely ladies graced the series. Melina was a Diva who had many tremendous talents but was ultimately the victim of bad booking and backstage politics.
During her six-year career in WWE, Melina reigned as Women's Champion on three occasions and as Divas Champion on two occasions. Despite her accomplishments, Melina's character was given very little direction in her final few months with the company.
Here, I'll break down every rise and fall in the career of Melina in an attempt to discover where exactly she went wrong.
