Mike and Maria Kanellis debuted on Smackdown Live back in the Money in the Bank PPV in 2017. The rumors of this couple finally coming onboard was up since last year’s Wrestlemania. WWE finally bring then on television as part of the Smackdown-exclusive event. We expected an abrupt push for this couple coming with a heel gimmick.
But, there were a number of constraints for the creative team while doing so considering that Mike Kanellis was in a tremendous bad shape. It was pretty clear that the officials, as well as the fans, were not happy to see him in such a physique. Furthermore, he was dealing with a drug addiction problem proving. It turned out to be a really bad time for them to make appearances on live TV.
Despite a popular Maria Kanellis playing his valet, her husband failed to elevate his level. Makin things worse was the pregnancy that took her out of the equation. There was no choice but to take them off the TV, abruptly. They have not appeared on TV for a long time now. In the meantime, Mike moved to WWE Raw during the superstar shakeup.
So we can expect that the couple will return in action on the flagship show in due course. The process has finally started now that Maria Kanellis is back in training sessions going over from her pregnancy days. She delivered a healthy back in this year’s spring and now eyes to make a valiant comeback as soon as possible.
Recent updates from social media suggested that the former Playboy Magazine cover star is sweating it out at the WWE performance center situated in Orlando, Florida. It’s really hard for her to be back in shape just a few months after giving birth to her child but she has no other option.

Here are the heartfelt quotes from one of the most popular female superstars in the WWE,
“I’ll be down in Florida fighting for that time. Even if I’m doing it with stretched out mommy belly skin and a baby on my hip. I don’t have a college education saved in the bank for my baby girl so momma has to go back to work.”
It’s still not clear from his post whether Maria Kanellis is looking forward to coming back to in-ring competition. She was playing a valet for her husband ever since coming back to the WWE. Considering her motherhood, she might want to continue this role. But you never know whether this women’s revolution changes her mind.
