Tonight at Money in the Bank, the WWE Universe saw the debut of a new superstar and the return of a familiar face.
“The First Lady of Professional Wrestling” Maria Kanellis made her WWE return – now as a member of the Smackdown brand – and she brought with her, her real-life husband Mike Bennett – or as he is now known, Mike Kanellis. I think JBL said what many of us were thinking “he took her name.”
There were reports that Mike and Maria were in St. Louis and would possibly make their Smackdown debut at the event. After they made their debut, some fans didn’t know what to make of the segment. From their promo, it looks like the couple are going to teach the WWE Universe about love – and by the tone of Maria’s voice, they’re going to be heels.
Although the segment left me with some questions, I liked the confidence in Maria’s voice. She’s no longer the bubbly backstage announcer or Santino’s girlfriend who later shared a kiss with Snoop Dogg. She’s now all business.
