Mike & Maria Not On The Road For WWE
Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis Bennett requested for their WWE releases but were turned down by the management. Maria gunned down the report on social media but that doesn’t change the fact that they had asked WWE to release them from their contracts.
On PW Insider Elite audio, Mike Johnson revealed that the couple has not been hitting the road for WWE lately.
“Two of the talents that have been talked about quite a bit are Mike and Maria Kanellis […] we are told they are not on the road for WWE this week and they are not scheduled to be on the road which seems a little weird because everyone’s on the road every week.”
WWE also removed Mike and Maria’s “Power of Love Collection” from the WWE Network. The show was supposed to be hosted by the lovebirds for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.
Although “it’s not hard to connect the line from A to B here,” it remains to be seen whether WWE resolves whatever issue there is ahead of WrestleMania season.
