The internet is abuzz with the recent leak of WWE diva Maria Kanellis’ Playboy pictures. The Playboy cover is April 2008 and this leak has put the Maria into the league of Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson and Ashley Massaro as WWE Divas who have previously posed for Playboy.

The cover features a hot body-shot photo of the WWE Diva, with hardly nothing on.

Here’s a preview from Playboy: “The WWE’s sexiest star has moved from innocent reporter to mistress of the mat. Now her pesky tights are peeled off in a slamming pictorial.”

These actually look great, because they are not too artistic like Candice’s. Maria is shown with no special background and the camera featuring her boobs and not that her shaved pu**y. I think it’s safe to assume she’s at least natural!

“When I came into WWE at 22, I came in scared,” she said. “Now I’m standing here with my butt completely naked and guess what? I’m feeling good.”
“I’m very glamorous in this photo shoot,” Maria said. “I’m very high fashion and it definitely brings out that personality in me and makes me look strong. Our fans don’t necessarily get to see me done up to this extent; they don’t get to see me up close and personal.”

Maria dated fellow wrestler CM Punk. She confirmed it in an interview with The Sun after pictures of the two kissing surfaced on the Internet. However, the two have since broken up in June 2007. Maria was earlier asked to follow in the footsteps of other WWE Divas and pose for Playboy, but she initially refused because she did not wish to embarrass her sister, who was still in high school at the time.

No wonder, Hugh Hefner chose her, Maria is a real sexy girl and definitely a firecracker. While posing for the April 2008 issue of Playboy, Maria twisted and turned her body into often uncomfortable positions, which always resulted in sexy shots.

We’re hearing that Maria’s Playboy issue will be released on March 7th on newsstands and with the full photo shoot online, I don’t think you need to wait for the biggest wrestling world scoop. Maria Kanellis will be signing her Playboy issue next week in New York City.
