Just one week after it was reported that Maria Kanellis and her husband Mike Bennett had signed new deals with Impact Wrestling, PWInsider now reports that the husband-wife duo have parted ways with the company.
The report adds that both Maria and Mike were working on pay-per-appearance deals after their contracts expired in December 2016. Additionally, the company had attempted to sign the pair to new contracts and according to one source, had agreed to terms with the company only to later inform TNA they would not be signing.
Maria and Mike Bennett made their Impact debut at the start of 2016 and in the same year captured the Knockouts and X-Division Championship respectively. The couple’s final televised appearance took place last week where they played an instrumental role in Allie and Braxton Sutter‘s wedding segment.
