Mike and Maria Kanellis are looking for their exits from the WWE based on a recent report published by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet. According to the report, the married couple has recently asked for WWE officials to release them from their contracts.
It should be noted that in the past, the company doesn’t grant requests for releases from talent but rather makes them sit at home while still paying them until their contracts expire. Thus, if news of their departures doesn’t surface in the near future, that’s the reason behind it.
Satin also reported that they’ve been unhappy with the WWE due to the way they’ve been used. After taking a while to make their decision, they informed the company that they wanted out of their contracts a few weeks ago.
Mike has also started selling new shirts on Pro Wrestling Tees. By looking at his match stat on CageMatch.net, he has only wrestled on SmackDown Live just four times since signing with the company back in April of 2017. The other appearances have been at live events and working Main Event tapings.
If you recall, Maria and Mike made their debut as a couple on WWE television at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event in 2017 by cutting a promo about how everyone would know what the Power Of Love was all about. When Maria announced that they were expecting, she was taken off the road with the company. They had their first child, daughter Freddie Moon. They were recently paired on 205 Live.
