Vince McMahon isn’t a fan of a popular WWE NXT tag team. Former WWE Superstars Mike and Maria Kanellis have been quite vocal about their time in WWE after leaving the company last year.
During a recent appearance on the DropKick Podcast, Maria discussed her returning to WWE.
“I’m sure that Mike [Bennett] will at some point. That’s just how that company rolls,” Maria said. “For me, there would have to be some guaranteed money. I’ve always done the contracts where it’s like, you know, there’s a downside, but that’s not guaranteed, and two tiny ones. With how many years I’ve spent in this industry, and [how] I gave WWE over 8 years of my life, I think there’d have to be some guaranteed money.”
She then talked about the weekly storyline between her husband and her, which would have resulted in them splitting up on-screen. But the storyline was nixed ultimately.
“So it was supposed to be this storyline where I was just berating him the whole time,” Maria said. “I was still on the road while pregnant, and then it was going to be Mike turning on me. It was supposed to be, ‘I’m sick of your s–t lady, I’m gonna do this on my own.’ Then I was gonna go on maternity leave, and then he was gonna have this singles run and use all the things he had been though. You know, dating an evil woman and having this addiction and all this stuff. He was going to use it as a babyface and to really start getting some wins and get the ball rolling.
“Then of course that ended as well, but you know some of our segments were like the highest rated during RAW, and I don’t think Vince liked it, [and he] didn’t understand Breezango either. You hear all these stories of how he doesn’t get it and I’m sorry you didn’t get it but the fans enjoyed it.”
