Former IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Returns to WWE at WWE Money in the Bank (June, 18th 2017)

On top of WWE hosting its first Womens Money in the Bank Ladder Match and giving Lana her in ring re-debut against the current and eager to defend Smackdown Womens Champion Naomi, a surprise return took place on tonights Money in the Bank Pay Per View, as former IMPACT Knockout Maria Kanellis-Bennett returned to the WWE, appearing on WWE Television for the first time in seven years, managing her debuting Husband Mike Bennett, who now goes under the name of Mike Kanellis. The Two were rumored to be joining WWE not too long after their IMPACT Wrestling Departure.

The Duo of Mike and Maria left IMPACT Wrestling earlier this year, sharing a reign on IMPACT Television each, Mike as a 1x X Division Champion and Maria as a 1x Knockouts Champion. Maria’s reign began in the midst of a long tenured feud with IMPACT Wrestling Veteran Gail Kim, officially ending at the hands of Kim at IMPACTs Bound for Glory Pay Per View. Mike and Maria, who also worked for Ring of Honor, appeared before the St Louis audience on tonight’s show to Proclaim the “Power of Love” and confirmed furthermore their idea to spread this as part of the Smackdown Live Roster. This also marks the first time Maria has been a heel in WWE, working as a babyface manager and in ring competitor during her first run that ended in 2010. Maria joins Maryse, Nikki Bella and Mickie James as part of her original womens division competitors currently on the WWE roster.

Congratulations to Maria on her surprise WWE Return and an extra Congratulations goes out to Mike on his WWE Debut. Stay Tuned throughout the early half of the week for a full Money in the Bank Report.
