Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis Reportedly Going To WWE SmackDown
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Wade Keller of PWTorch.com is reporting that Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis, formerly of Impact Wrestling and Ring Of Honor, are expected to sign with WWE shortly.
The couple had been working with Impact Wrestling, but didn't renew their contracts when they expired. Keller's report states Bennett and Maria will be headed to the WWE SmackDown Live brand.
Maria's first appearance in WWE came in 2004 when she hosted WWE Kiss Cam and played a ditzy backstage reporter who asked superstars the wrong questions, irritating or amusing them. She started wrestling a regular schedule of matches in 2005. Later in her WWE career, she had a relationship with Santino Marella before the WWE released her from her contract in 2010.
