But with the same tweet, she hinted at possibilities of a future return.

Melina hits back at fake news

Despite a small reply on Twitter, Melina posted a lengthy answer to the rumor on Facebook.

This makes my heart ache because I love my fans so much. I want you to realize that these sites that claim they know what’s happening don’t. How many times have they falsely reported things about me and said I am returning? You can’t believe them because they do not report real or correct news. They often twist things up to get clicks.”

She said the fans deserve better than fake, clickbait news. For a few clicks, websites made fans hope for an uncertain thing.

Melina then called WWE her home. That’s where things actually got interesting. She said that the sites might have ruined a great surprise.

One day I’ll come home but when the time is right. So if it doesn’t happen now, I’m sorry you thought I was returning. If it does happen… well these sites ruined a great surprise. You should be upset that they cheated you of that moment if it happens.”
