Former WWE Diva’s Champion Set to Return, Husband to Debut


Sportskeeda is reporting that Mike Bennett and his wife, Maria Kanellis, have both signed contracts with WWE. According to the website’s sources, the two were recently offered a deal and have accepted. It is also being reported that the duo is expected to debut on SmackDown LIVE, and that while they were offered another deal from their former employer, Impact Wrestling, WWE’s offer “was way more appealing.”

Wrestling Observer Live’s Bryan Alvarez has also mentioned on a recent edition of their show that they attempted to book the duo on a broadcast last month; however, they were told that Bennett and Kanellis were not taking any shows, which, Alvarez noted, is an indication that someone has signed a contract with an organization.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
