Melina never returned to WWE following reports of her signing.

Speaking to Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk, Melina said she was in talks, but a contract was never signed.

"It was talks of [a return]. Talks of seeing if it was possible and all that stuff. Everyone made such a big deal out of it. I was in talks with [WWE], but I never signed a contract, there was nothing going on. Just ‘hey would you consider, would you be open?’. I’m like ‘hell yeah’. Well it turned out I have like a bad knee, and I can’t wrestle. Who knows if I didn’t have a bad knee if they would have signed me? Or you never know, if I had a good knee they wanted to see if I was open to it, but probably not get signed. That’s just the way wrestling is. It’s never a guarantee," she said.

Johnny Fairplay said in an interview in December that Robert Stone had planned to manage Melina in NXT, but she had to have surgery.

Melina last wrestled in February 2020.
