Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis, formerly of TNA and ROH, are headed to WWE’s main roster. According to Pro Wrestling Sheet’s latest podcast they will be appearing on SmackDown Live.
Maria and Mike left TNA, now IMPACT Wrestling back in February, opting not to re-sign a deal when Anthem took over.
Maria and Mike’s respective contracts expired in late 2016 and they had been working on per appearance deals over the set of TNA TV tapings. TNA management 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 was last seen inside a WWE ring in February of 2010.
