If you like tomboys -- albeit hot ones -- you'll love Maria Kanellis, better known to her fans as the WWE's Diva Maria. The svelte and super-sexy auburn-haired RAW star kicks butt in the ring. She even fessed up in the April 2008 issue of Playboy to driving an Aston Martin Vanquish over 100 miles per hour on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.

But she's also a bit of a girlie girl -- just check out her April Playboy magazine pictorial. "I wanted a black hood to wear for the shoot," she says. "It gets me in the mode." So when she didn't see one there, she took the initiative to sew one herself. "Everything I wore in the Playboy magazine shoot, I chose." Though hoodies and lacy gloves are her signature look inside the squared circle, we know there's more to being a Diva than just looking good: "I have a few signature moves," she says. "One is the beautiful bulldog: It's when I have a girl in a headlock, and I jump up and land on my butt, and I drive her head into the mat. After that, she's done. There's another thing I do, when I throw a girl in the corner, and I hit her with my bum, and then she falls down. [Laughs] And I do this thing called the bronco buster -- I jump up and down on the girl in the corner."

To heat things up a little more, Playboy.com caught up with the Illinois native, to talk crazy groupies, even crazier places to have sex and, of course, wrestling -- in and out of the ring. "Wrestling is definitely sexy," Maria says, "especially when it's two ladies." We agree it's a winning formula.


1. Have any of your wrestling injuries ever affected your performance in bed?

WWE Diva Maria: Most of my injuries haven't really been anything too bad where I couldn't perform properly. But if I'm really beat up and sore then the guy can take a little bit of time with me and make me feel better. I would just kind of lay down and take it, rather than have to do any of the work.

2. What are your favorite sexual positions?

Diva Maria: I like being on bottom. I have so much control in the outside world, I don't necessarily want it when I'm in the bed. Depends on my mood. Sometimes I can be aggressive; other times I'm pretty passive.

3. What do you like to sleep in?

Diva Maria: I'm actually pretty plain, when it comes to what I sleep in. I just wear sweats to bed. But when I'm walking around the house, it's just me in a pair of shorts, or just some pants. I'm usually topless.

4. Are your natural breasts an asset when you're wrestling?

Diva Maria: Well, they move a little bit more -- the "Tiggers" like to bounce around. So when I'm in the ring I have to tape them in a little more than the ones that just sit there.

5. You call your boobs "Tiggers." What are your nicknames?

Diva Maria: I have a couple of nicknames. Kitty is the big one right now, from the way I act in bed -- from crawling or the way I arch my back during sex.
