Maria Kanellis was recently a guest on the Dropkick Podcast, where she stated that WWE was supposed to give Mike a great solo career. She also confirmed that her husband was going to become a beloved babyface while talking about his addiction and an evil woman in his life, which would be her.
They were supposed to do a story where she would scold Mike all the time while she was pregnant. Then he would turn against me because he would blame me for his discomfort and his defeats and show that he could achieve anything alone. Therefore, I would have been an evil woman and my husband would have been a great fan-supported babyface. I honestly don’t think Vince McMahon has ever liked any of this, said Maria Kanellis.
Mike and Maria Kanellis were released from WWE on April 15, 2020, due to the cuts that the company had to make due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. After the couple’s departure, they both returned to ROH (Ring of Honor) where Mike is currently in the company’s programming and Maria is absent due to her paternity.
Maria Kanellis Made History In WWE
Maria Kanellis became the first pregnant champion in WWE history by winning the championship 24/7 after forcing her husband Mike Bennett to let the count be applied. Eventually, she lost the title to her husband and after that, she left maternity programming and Mike was left with nothing to do. According to Maria, it was not originally supposed to be like this.
