AEW Sign Legendary WWE Diva Before Dynamite

According to Sean Sapp behind Fightfuls’ paywall, AEW signed proper contracts with the entire Kingdom Trio of Maria Kanelis, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven. They just recently finished up their time at Impact Wrestling with the Bound For Glory event.



The trio of Maria Kanellis, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven finished up with IMPACT Wrestling at the Bound For Glory tapings and dropped the IMPACT Tag Team Championships, but it hadn’t aired yet. As a result, they appeared on AEW television while in canon being IMPACT champions.

It was reported that “FTR had also pushed to get them involved, though we’re not sure in what context.”

In his 22 October report, Wade Keller made some revelations based on his conversations with people in AEW. Keller stated that in the whole CM Punk vs The Elite controversy, President Tony Khan is more inclined toward the latter.

He speculated that Tony might have thought of favoring Punk when assuming the dream matches he could have delivered. But that would not have outweighed what The Elite can bring to the table. Keller stated:

“Tony [Khan] is siding with Kenny [Omega] and the [Young] Bucks more than [CM] Punk… Tony would have wanted to side with Punk… in terms of… the storylines that haven’t happened yet… I think he’s not as enamored as with what’s left to do with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega.”
