Ever since their departure from Impact Wrestling earlier this year, rumors have been swirling that wrestling power couple Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett were under WWE’s radar.

According to a new report from PWInsider (via WrestleZone), fans may soon see the couple on WWE television as early as this weekend! According to the report, the couple have been signed to the WWE since April with initial plans of making their debut at NXT TakeOver: Orlando.

Those plans were scrapped and the couple are now expected to join the main roster as part of the SmackDown brand this coming Tuesday with a chance of making their debut at Sunday’s Money in the Bank. The pair are expected to be involved in a feud upon their WWE arrival but so far no word on who that will be against.

Maria worked for the WWE from 2004 to 2010, debuting as part of the first televised Diva Search. She would later debut in Ring of Honor in late 2011 alongside Bennett, who was with ROH since 2008. The pair made their Impact debut at the start of 2016 and in the same year captured the Knockouts and X-Division Championship respectively.

Are you excited to see the Bennetts in WWE? Do you think they’ll make an appearance at Sunday’s Money in the Bank? Who would you like to see the pair feud with?

  • DivaLicious?

    FUCK YEAH?? I loved Maria bossy heel mic work in Impact. She really made that storyline interesting. SD is the show for her to shine. I smell a Maria & mike bennett vs Nikki & john cena feud on the rise.

    I know Maria will kill it if she has FULL control over her character.

  • VictoriaForHOF

    Oh no ?

    • Monkey Meat

      You want a man in HOF, cuck.

      • VictoriaForHOF

        You little kids disgust me

  • Mike

    For me personally, seeing Maria on WWE television again won’t particularly be the highlight of my week…BUT, who knows. Maybe she’ll surprise me…

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      Not as a wrestler but as a manager, she gives me life.

      • Mike

        I’d like to say that I agree, but even as a manager, for me, she still leaves a lot to be desired. Admittedly, I haven’t watched much of her TNA stuff, but I did see the wedding scene between Braxton Sutter and Laurel van Ness that she was a part of. I just can’t listen to her talk. I think there’s something with her voice that just irks me. Of course, that’s not her fault…

        • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

          If it irks you as a heel, she’s doing well. Her time with TNA was brilliant!

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      Another “personal feud” for WM where John Cena’s lines to Maria would be stronger than anything Nikki will say to defend herself. LOL!

      • Number One

        Apparently Nikki’s strong promos went over your head

        • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

          While she’s decent-to-good I don’t believe she competes with Carmella, Lana, Alexa, Mickie, Charlotte, Sasha & others.

          • Number One

            Maria’s already ahead of Alexa, but you’re right, she’s not in the level of the other women you mentioned

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            María is the belt female talker only behind Stephanie at this point.

          • Number One

            Charlotte and Nikki are ahead of Maria on the mic

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            Please! They are decently good, Maria is amazing in that department.

          • Number One

            She could still learn from Charlotte and Nikki, as well as Nattie

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            You must be a troll.

          • Number One

            Nope. Just a factual women’s wrestling fan

          • Number One

            Nikki’s better than all of them, especially Alexa. Alexa’s promos need vast improvement

    • jcott3

      It would take a while for them to even think about doing that, as they would first have to build up Bennett.

    • Wicked Bliss

      I remember there was a rumor that Maria was chosen as one of the original cast of total divas along with the bellas but the bella stopped it. If this is true feud between Nikki and Maria would be entertaining to watch.

  • #BrieForPeace ?

    If this is true I love it! I lowkey wouldn’t mind seeing Maria win but at the same time it feels unfair to the other girls who have been there since the beginning of the division. Nonetheless this maybe that wall that needs to break in order for us to move past the 3 vs 3 dynamic and get proper single feuds.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Honestly, I don’t see them using Maria in the women’s division for now. Maria knows her strength and I am sure she will be used just like Maryse as a manager.

      • #BrieForPeace ?

        It wouldn’t be a waste to use her in the division at all imho. She’s not that bad in the ring and could even play a role like she did on Impact. She doesn’t need to be involved wrestling-wise but she could play a role like the sneaky heel stealing the briefcase using someone like Tamina to do all the dirty work and then getting the title by cashing in with Tamina then turning on her… there’s infinite possible scenarios that I wouldn’t mind

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          With Lana’s arrival, I think it’s best she doesn’t get involved with the division for now to say the least in my view. I think Maria is an amazing talent. Her character work is great and I truly admire her passion. Now, she’s bad in the ring and too bad for her to be a regular in the division and that’s fine because honestly, she doesn’t have to be.

          I think her being in the ring should be special occasions and if she has to be involved with the women, I would prefer an authority role or as a pure manager for a girl. She can be so successful as a character because she’s that good.

          • #BrieForPeace ?

            I totally see your point it’s just that I miss seeing her in the ring in a high profile platform and I think that she’s not showcased totally what she can do. Nonetheless i’m okay with her role as a manager but let’s not forget she was a great asset to the WWE back then and if lightning strikes twice I wouldn’t mind seeing her as a full time competitor if it happens.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            “but let’s not forget she was a great asset to the WWE back then” I mean… Let’s say that she was a very likable face and a nice character (which has always been her strength).

          • #BrieForPeace ?

            I meant it in that way, she was the most popular at one point. I acknowledge her wrestling is far from being Asuka level but she’s not as bad as people make her out to be but that’s just my opinion. We’ve seen way worse.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            We’ve seen way worse that’s for sure and she was very popular, I agree.

          • Degenerous Boss

            I desperately want a women that works specifically as a manager for the women’s division like Karen Jarret

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Honestly, this could work very well for a period of time. Maria could definitely make it work.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Agree, she’s competition for Maryse, she is very strong with her promos & segments but wrestling is a little below average. I’m sure this deal is to bring this guy in and she’ll make him a star. Just like Lana did with Rusev.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Yes! More female managers who can actually do their job without having to taking away the spotlight from the person they manage, the better. She will elevate him just like she did in his entire career. He’s fine as a talent but without Maria, he wouldn’t be where he’s at imho.

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            Yes! Some wrestlers need their valet. Remember Edge? He was good but once Lita stepped in, he turned into Mr. Money In The Bank, The Rated R Superstar, without Lita he wouldn’t reach that level of success.

  • wysna

    She was great in Impact because the division needed her. I don’t see how the WWE can make room for her as a figure in their divisions since there are so many girls involved already and a great number of them are not being used. I wouldn’t mind seeing her buff Bennett up. But I kinda don’t want her to get involved with the women just yet.

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      I don’t see her working in the women’s division. She’s competing with Maryse in the manager department and she’s really good at that.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Hmm… looking at the card and assuming that it would be true, I see them debuting by preventing someone from winning the money in the bank ladder match. Either AJ Styles or Samy Zayn.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      It should be AJ Styles. Sami has been putting over people for the longest now being the perfect underdog. It’s his time to shine. Sami needs to win after Mike cost Styles the match.

  • MiguelAngl

    Im so ready to hear her theme song…

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    I am a fan of Maria, specially as a manager. This means Maryse will have competition and this girl can do promos to save her life. Her heel work is a masterpiece!

    • Looking Glass

      Masterpiece? All she does is look to the sky and speak in the same patronising tone of voice. It’s hardly winning any awards

        Sure Jan. Go rub yourself to Naomi’s promos or whoever DD viewers praise when they suck on the mic. Maria is incredible on the mic and a very convincing character. She’s a bad bitch heel and plays an amazing naive baby face.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        When she does promos for him she does use the same tone and is amazing. Once she’s doing other type of segments she adds more depth to her character. She’s great st her role.

  • Degenerous Boss

    I’m so ready for this but not only do i want to see her be a manager for her dude, but i also want to see her involved in the women’s division too, i still want her maryse and kelly kelly to form a heel stable and jump df out of Nikki Bella, leading to Brie’s comeback

    • Ollie Roche

      no Kelly Kelly!!!

    • jabril

      No.

  • Summer_Slay #SummerTime

    I wont be surprised now if Maria turns out to be this 6th mystery woman that WWE talked about. Remember she “wrestled” in TNA in that ladder match and that’s how she gained control of the KO’s division. Even tho my personal opinion is that she is complete garbage in the ring and for someone who’s been wrestling since 2004 and its on Eva Marie lv, she’s arguably one of the worst female wrestlers out there. So ill say keep her.

    • Degenerous Boss

      While it would be amazing for a past superstar to return for this ladder match, and while I’m very happy to see Maria return, she’s not the right fit for this ladder match at all lol its bad enough that Carmella is in it already

      • Brett

        Even though Carmella can hold her own… Not like she hindering the match.

        • Degenerous Boss

          Yes she’ll hold her own, but she won’t be bringing the ooooou & awe factor to the match, that would be charlotte, she won’t be taking the big bumps , that will be Tamina & Becky, she won’t be doing the big bumps, that’ll be Charlotte & Natalya, and she won’t be doing most of the groundwork, that’s Becky & Natalya w/ help from Tamina, her capabilities lead her to hiding in a dark corner and trying to sneak a win

          • Ollie Roche

            Carmella is definitely a comic relief which is also quite a useful thing to have, not everyone can do it especially ladies.

          • Degenerous Boss

            Yeah she’ll definitely play her role, I’m just saying we can’t afford any more of her type in that match

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            I could see her taking a big bump

      • GlowTime

        Carmella will be fine, I think she’ll prove a lot of people wrong and turn a lot of heads!

    • GlowTime

      Maria would be awful addition to this match. And to be honest, I think you’re actually insulting Eva by putting them on the same level. Eva is better in the ring but Maria is miles better on the mic

      • Monkey Meat

        Really? Maria could put on better matches with Beth and Melina than Eva could with Asuka. And Eva had 10 minutes.

        • GlowTime

          Neither are the best in the ring, but to compare Eva’s 4 years to Maria’s 13, Eva has the advantage to me

          • Monkey Meat

            Maria’s prime year was 2007 aka her third. That’s where she was at her best, and then she began slacking as soon as she went to SD. Her last match with WWE was really good. Everything after WWE has been her worst.

      • Windyhawaii

        At least maria was willing to learn, she was never unwilling to go out to the ring and take bumps. She can be trained, it’s not impossible

        • GlowTime

          …and so she should be. She’s been making money from the business for the last 13 years. For someone with as many years experience as her, she should be a ring general.

          • Windyhawaii

            Not really, she signed with WWE and for the first few years she really wasn’t trained to wrestle. She only started wrestling more around 2007 to 2009. She was improving too, a good amount. Then she left, and since then she’s wrestled sporadically, mainly just being a valet. And when you don’t wrestle for that long, you get ring rust. TNA didn’t really use her for wrestling either, so it makes sense why she wouldn’t be an in ring general. Being in the professional wrestling business doesn’t mean you have to wrestle, plenty of people were successful valets and that’s probably what she wants to be.

          • GlowTime

            I agree with you, you can be successful in the industry as a valet. Which is why my first comment said she would be an awful addition the the match. She’s not a wrestler. I appreciate her getting stuck in and taking bumps, like The Kat and Terri Runnels back in the day, but shes not a wrestler.

            …and about her not wrestling much in TNA. They tape a months worth of tv over several days. She may not wrestle on TV but she can be in a ring else where learning the craft if she wanted to. Again, I appreciate her taking bumps, dedication to the business etc, but my original point is that she she wouldn’t be a good addition to the MITB match. And to put her the same level as Eva, even with the years difference in the business id say Eva would be better wrestler, and Maria the better talker.

          • Windyhawaii

            You have a good point with her trying to better her craft elsewhere if she wanted to, she wasn’t in the match anyway though so, my point is invalid now

        • jcott3

          Other than Sable, I can’t think of any women who were unwilling to take bumps. I think most of them see it as part of the job of being in the wrestling business. Even Miss Elizabeth took the occasional bump.

          • Windyhawaii

            Doesn’t make it any less respectful that she was willing to.

    • Monkey Meat

      She’s really close to Summer’s level.

      • Summer_Slay #SummerTime

        Hey, at least

    • Lushluke

      Please no

    • Windyhawaii

      6th mystery woman to what? And I’m almost positive she’s being brought up as a valet for now.

  • hitesh khanna

    Where are you getting this insider scoop?? I have been waiting for them for a long time now!!

  • GEO

    As long as she has this theme, welcome back Maria.
    https://youtu.be/mIMYOg9XD3w

    • Ollie Roche

      Well maryse kept hers but on the other hand Maria’s song was by zebrahead, I do believe that a song purchased by an artist has a contracted usage so it probably would have expired now

    • Exotic

      My fave diva theme

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Mike Bennet sucks, but Maria would be awesome. Their pairing kind of reminds me of a poor man’s Miz and Maryse.

    • Number One

      LOL! I had that same thought!

    • Monkey Meat

      Shut ya minge, peen in ass boy.

      • JohnJohn Wong

        Are you guys forgetting that maryse & the miz is on RAW not on SD…as for the couple feud Idk who else is a couple besides rusev & lana

    • Windyhawaii

      Mike Bennet does not suck, hasn’t even debuted in WWE yet and you’re already judging.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        He’s legit nothing special.

        • Windyhawaii

          Trish wasn’t either when she debuted

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Yes she was

          • Windyhawaii

            Oh please don’t fool, she became special overtime. She was just another pretty face when she debuted

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            She was super over for being beautiful. I mean if you like men you’d think otherwise honestly.

          • Windyhawaii

            She goes on the long list of women who were also super over for being beautiful. She was nothing special at the start of her WWF career

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            She had the look. Always grabbed your attention. Had just the right amount of sex appeal. Don’t compare Trish to trash, honey.

          • Windyhawaii

            Once again, the EXACT same thing that every other girl was at that time. Don’t try to pretend like your argument has any point “honey”

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Why are we talking about Trish though. Like her situation had/has nothing to do with this. Like what?

          • Windyhawaii

            You said bennet wasn’t anything special, I said neither was trish when she debuted. Bennet just debuted, give him a chance is all I’m saying

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Mike bennet been wrestling though. Don’t bring Trish into this. Bye.

          • Windyhawaii

            Yet I brought trish into it a while ago, you’re so stupid laugh ?

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            can you even speak english?

          • Windyhawaii

            …… what?

    • Wicked Bliss

      Miz and Maryse vs Mike and Maria heel vs heel sounds good to me.

  • #Lasskicker
    • Windyhawaii

      She’s didn’t have enough time in TNA to properly improve, and since her first WWE run wrestling hasn’t been her priority, but I think she’s more than capable of being trained to wrestle at least decently

  • Ollie Roche

    Guys don’t get too excited about hearing her song again. We got to hear Maryse’ theme but that was a Jim Johnson song. Maria’s song was by zebra head and (correct me if I’m wrong) they need to pay for a an artists usage with the exception of triple h because he was friends wth the singer of his. Zebra head are irrelevant nowadays so they see no point and just use mike Bennett theme.

    • hitesh khanna

      wait they played maryses theme when she returned…. any video??

      • Jouey
        • PsychoMickie

            passion? lol

          • Lushluke

            Er yeh she did! ? U deaf boo

          • PsychoMickie

            i heard nothing. but i’m not trying to hate it was just funny.

          • Larissa

            That’s Mickie currently??

          • PsychoMickie

            it’s never just straight silence for Mickie. Mickie gets a decent cheer going. She’s also not booked all that great so that could be another reason why.

          • Larissa

            Maryse isn’t booked at all so.

          • PsychoMickie

            Technically, if Miz wins titles with her managing it looks good on her as well. But I’m not trying to compare Mickie to Maryse.

  • I don’t really care for Maria’s return. I can see why they chose her, but wish they would have gone after one of their former female wrestlers, and not models. Oh well.

    • Number One

      Um, Maria’s a wrestler, too, in case you’ve forgotten

      • I guess I have.

        • Windyhawaii

          You most certainly have

      • Lushluke

        Haha is she??

    • She’s stayed in the wrestling business for over 13 years, it’s not like they randomly picked her out of her retirement like Maryse, so what makes her a model?

      • Did she wrestle in TNA?

        • Yes, she was the Knockouts champion as well.

          • Are you kidding me? She was there, she was champion, but she didn’t wrestle. She had two actual matches? Bumped what, once? Sure she can talk, but that isn’t enough for me. If she stays a valet cool, but if that’s all she brings to the division, no thank you.

          • Did you even watch TNA? She wrestled. Was in a ladder match and No DQ match. Fought at BFG against Gail. You’re trying to demonize her and it’s not working. She wrestled. Period.

          • Trying to demonize her, oh bother it’s the internet it’s not that serious. She’s awful in the ring, admittedly I only skimmed through, but, BFG was not pretty; and so I will also say I was wrong about the still very minimal amount of work she did in the ring in TNA.

            Like I said if she is a valet, fine, but if that’s all she brings to the division I would rather not see it.

          • I’m sure she’ll mostly stick to valeting anyways, but don’t judge or rule out something you haven’t seen yet. Watch her No DQ match with Gail, she did pretty good.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          “Ish”. Even Gail couldn’t get a decent match out of her. And Gail managed to make Kelly Kelly look like she could technical/mat wrestle once.. lol

    • Windyhawaii

      Thought we were past the whole model hate, she was literally just in TNA and has great promo capabilities. I can see why they’d want her on

  • Monkey Meat

    So excited to see her back. She’s one of the most socially aware women in wrestling. A good person like Eve Torres. Not the best wrestler, far from it. But she oozed of presence and was very character oriented. One of the best underdogs, and her era’s answer to Stacy and Torrie.

  • trishlita721

    Yesssss I can’t wait for maria…. She impressed me so much on impact she was literally the only reason I watched!!! I was hoping it wasn’t all lies.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I’m excited to see my girl Maria back. She along with Mickie, Melina and favorite/childhood idol Candice. Hopefully Melina still makes a return too. I can only dream for Candice to comeback. But anyway I hope Maria do actually get in the ring instead of her stint on Impact. But I think that actually was more so due to her injury because she was active on the Indy scene before that. And she has improved way more than what WWE was teaching her.

  • Windyhawaii

    Sounds cool I’m excited. just you know, either keep Maria as a manager or train her for wrestling a lot more cause I don’t want Maria to take Lana’s gimmick.

  • Windyhawaii

    Thinking about it, I think it’d be pretty cool if they made Maria a power figure in smackdown. I heard Maria and the Bella’s settled their issues? So maybe they could incorporate their past beef into a story where she tries to stick it to Daniel, which would/could give a good angle for Brie’s eventual return, since she’s been saying she wants to return. And it’d be on the brand of her sister

    • Luiz Giem

      Bryan, Brie, Cena & Nikki vs. Mike, Maria, Miz & Maryse… The storyline writes itself.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Miz and Maryse just got traded to Smackdown though. That would’ve actually been interesting if it did happen, wow.

        • Luiz Giem

          I know, what a shame they are on different brands. I would even love to see a feud between The Bennetts vs. Miz & Maryse.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Mhm. I’d prefer The Bennetts to go to RAW. Raw needs a high profiled mixed tag feud. Not the Sasha and Cruiserweights storyline. But an actual storyline that involves 4 big characters.

          • Luiz Giem

            I think the Bennetts will debut as a heel duo but I can totally see a face turn somewhere down the line and a possible draft to RAW to feud Miz & Maryse.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Bet she’s been filming for Total Divas as well.

    • Of course lol Another reason she’s probably returning.

    • Marshy

      It won’t be her first rodeo on a reality show, she was on Celebrity Apprentice and this was way before Donald Trump have decided to throw his name in the political ring.

    I would prefer her to stay as a manager. But it’s cool she coming back.

    Not every women that comes in should wrestle. Like Maryse, she doesn’t need to wrestle she’s better off as a manager.

  • Maria, the original go to jobber. I always was like whatever with her. Let’s see how them managing skills do https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1926c6b6489d475be954f2297dacb45fb0458c4ed7785e8cbe7fc4b17977ade3.gif

    OMG. The only one word that can describe how I feel right now.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      hey girl do you have a twitter?

  • Mr. What

    Maria>>>>Bliss

    • Larissa

      Lmaoo

  • Luiz Giem

    Before founding out these news I was wondering if the WWE just dropped the ball on they coming to the WWE, glad to know it’s still happening and sooner than expected.

    I lowkey love Maria as heel manager and would love to see her as part of Total Divas cast next season.

  • Wicked Bliss

    I really find Maria’s mic style the same as Stephanie or Charlotte. But nontheless she’s doing it really well looking forward to seeing her as valet.

  • Wicked Bliss

    OMG cant wait to see the Maria and Nikki Beef in the ring or in total divas. I bet there is somehow truth about rumor.

  • FiguredRetro

    If this means Alicia Fox FINALLY get’s her OWN entrance music, GREAT!

    • Allan Monroe

      Omg yes, I need her to someday have a proper entrance

  • Peta

    SDLive is really the land of opportunities…. and comebacks? Lol if Kelly Kelly will return and will debut back in Smackdown that’s like 3 comebacking women no?

  • Hope she comes as a Heel.

  • 3???????

    Maria bout to be on total divas watch

  • ssilva872

    Wow who would they feud with?

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      I could see Maria feuding with the likes of Lana, Carmella or a returning Nikki in the future.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Ugh not feeling it but hey as long as they don’t bring that stupid miracle and first lady gimmick to WWE I will be fine!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Why not? That’ll be entertaining and she’ll have some character.

    I can’t wait see Maria return to WWE. I heard about Kelly Kelly will return to WWE. Good for them. I don’t like Bella Twins. I remember Bella Twins did insult to Kharma(Awesome Kong).

  • Monkey Tennis

    She brought nothing to TNA. Indeed, quite the opposite. Building everything around a woman who wouldn’t/couldn’t wrestle ended up reducing the Knockout’s title to an utter irrelevance, a situation that even now TNA are struggling to rectify.

    Her ring works is legitimately bad and her mic work is meh. Still, if she’s given as much to do as Maryse (essentially nothing of any importance or note) then fair enough, stick her on SD. Just as long as she doesn’t take up too much TV time from the actual Women’s Division.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      “Building everything around a woman who wouldn’t/couldn’t wrestle…”
      Sounds familiar to a certain champion in the WWE.

    • Gato_wiska

      She is the reason why Allie is popular.

      • Monkey Tennis

        Not really. The most basic sympathy-generating of story-lines is what got Allie over, in pretty much the worst way possible. There are a 100 other ways that Allie could have gotten over, and some of ’em might actually have involved using one of the best indie wrestlers in the US right now as an actual wrestler for the last year… Instead of pigeon-holing her into a situation where over a year on from her debut, she’s still yet to have what could be considered a ‘proper’ match.

        And even if Allie’s pity-popularity is something to be pleased about, it’s still got very little to do with Maria. She was just the token authority figure in the narrative – that same outcome could have been achieved with anybody in the same role. Let’s be honest, it wasn’t the most layered or interesting of storytelling. Basically, it got Allie over in the same way that a puppy with a limp would get over in a YouTube video.

  • Memo Soto
  • awesome news if true

  • B J

    I liked her First Lady gimmick!

  • king valor

    i feel like if maria shows up and becomes ms mitb…it kinda defeats the purpose of the storyline. if, however, she’s returning to help mike feud with someone like sami then im cool with it. idk how she’ll fit into the womens locker room just yet.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    YASSSSS. Maria better show tf out and get these fans booing her. I’m shook. Nikki and Cena vs Mike and Maria would be a great feud for SummerSlam!

  • Gato_wiska

    I want Maria to manage Asuka…

  • StraightFire

    Ugh. She better stay as a valet no one needs her as a full time wrestler in the women’s division.

  • Aye Mate

    I wonder if a feud with Ellsworth and Carmella is on the cards.

  • LoveEvaBella

    Ready for her comeback. Original Diva Search era YAAAAASSSSS. I loved her feud with Michelle Mccool on SD way back. She was so over she was rumored to win the Divas Championship but I wonder why it didn’t pan out.

  • ssilva872

    I just saw a picture of Maria/Mike at the airport next to Epico so it seems it is confirmed they are at least going to be at the arena tonight.

    Hopefully if they debut it is a good one since it no longer will be a surprise.

  • Bennett is amazing in the ring and WWE NxT needs a miracle, lol. Maria Kanellis is good on the mic but terrible in the ring. Could be good additions to the roster.

  • #QueenSummer

    I’m ready. Rusev and Lana vs Maria and Mike Bennett will be the best feud on TV to date.
