On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Maria and Mike Kanellis were involved in an interesting angle. Maria surprised everyone when she announced that she was pregnant. However, her completely burying her husband in the next promo was actually shocking.
Mike Johnson said on PW Insider Elite audio that this meant Maria will still appear on WWE TV while she is pregnant. He also talked about the reputation that Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have backstage.
Mike said that any of his engagements with them have always been positive and that they also had a reputation within Ring Of Honor and Impact for being a little hard to work with at times.
He added that Maria was the more vocal one and handled the lion’s share of the business there. Some talent in Impact Wrestling still comment on the two being difficult to work with. They also allegedly agreed to remain with the company but after getting their deals, they decided to go to WWE.
Dave Scherer then added that Mike taking Maria’s last name when coming to WWE summed up their relationship well.
