Several wrestlers, producers and other personnel were shown the exit door by WWE last week due to the financial implications of the current COVID-19 pandemic, and two names on the list were Maria and Mike Kanellis.
The couple, who joined WWE in 2017, have been rather vocal on social media post their release. Mike Kanellis even released fresh new merch, with ‘Non-Essential Wrestler’ written on it.
Maria Kanellis took to social media earlier and stated that she will be making a major announcement along with her husband during the broadcast of RAW tonight.
The former 24/7 Champion didn’t mention whether she will be returning on the show, or making an announcement on social media during RAW’s broadcast. The couple were released quite recently, and hence, a return to programming will be completely out of place.
Ryan Satin also tweeted later that one of the wrestlers who was released last week could be returning to RAW already, which could mean a return for Maria and Mike. However, Satin could be talking about a completely different wrestler altogeher, and it will be interesting to see who it is .
Maria tagged several promotions in her tweet, including ROH, AEW, NJPW and Impact. The duo had previously teased a return to ROH to join Matt Taken and The Kingdom, and a deal with ROH will also open up a possible return to NJPW.
Another possible superstar returning to RAW could be Drake Maverick, who is scheduled to be a part of the Interim Cruiserweight Championship tourney. Maverick was part of the releases last week, but will continue to be a part of the tournament. Although the matches are scheduled to take place on NXT, he could be the talent who Satin was referring to.
