"Facebook has terrible customer service. I’ve talked to no one."

The troll allegedly took over her Facebook page and posted a picture of Kanellis-Bennett posing in lingerie with the accompanying caption: "Hi everyone, I'm back after a long time. Facebook team helped me get my page back."

The model's husband Mike Bennett, also a pro wrestler, called called out Facebook for not taking down the account.

"Hey guys. Please go and report Maria’s Fan Page. This person stole Maria’s fan page and is now pretending to be her.

"Facebook has awful customer service and she can’t talk to anyone.

"So maybe if enough people report the page and tweet them, we can stop this person," he wrote.

Maria, aka Mary Louis, later replied to one of the fake posts on Facebook, saying: "This is not me. It's a man from India stealing my photos."

She was a fan favourite and superstar while in WWE, often appearing alongside wrestling legends John Cena and Kurt Angle in the 2000s.

She was featured in Playboy magazine in 2008 and was 2010 guest on Celebrity Apprentice in the US.

Maria is the co-owner and founder of Women's Wrestling Army, an independent women's professional wrestling association.

As well as performing in WWE, she was also part of Impact Wrestling, NJPW, and ROH.

Upon her surprise decision to leave the WWE to set up her own wrestling franchise, she said: "I don’t hate WWE, and I had great conversations before we made our decision on where we were gonna go.

"My husband had great conversations before we decided where we were gonna go. I think that’s also the thing that people need to realize, too, is a lot of us keep great relationships everywhere.

"You know, Triple H and Stephanie [McMahon] sent huge baskets to our house full of all these kids’ gifts after both of my kids were born.”
