Did you guys know Maria Menounos is a professional wrestler? It's true! "I've been watching it since I was little," the TV personality told us at a preview for Marshalls's spring lineup. "The WWE called me up a couple of years ago and they asked me to co-host Monday Night Raw, and I said 'Yes, on one condition. I want to wrestle.''

But, even though Menounos has proved herself in the ring...
She doesn't have a stage name yet! So we had her make one up on the spot.

"I want to go with The Golden Greek," Menounos told us. "Or Omega Girl. Those are two names I've toyed with wanting to be. My company is called Omega Girl, so I've always thought that should be my wrestling name, too."

If you have a stage name, you need a catchphrase. "Maybe it's just going to be 'Opa!'" Menounos said. "I'll smack them in the face and go 'Opa!' That can be my signature move, I can break plates when I finish."

Since Maria Menounos wrestles in bedazzled Greek flag-emblazoned costumes, this sounds totally perfect. But, despite her love of spandex in the ring, the wrestler whose style she admires most prefers to keep things a bit more simple. "I love John Cena. He's like Boston boy, regular guy in his jean shorts," she said. "He's so nice, a great great guy."
