Guess who’s back? There are stars in the WWE and there are people with star power. Sometimes you just look at someone and see that they could be a major star just due to charisma. That’s the case with a certain person in WWE who came back to the promotion with a load of potential but then had to leave due to an actually very positive reason. They’re about to make their return though and that’s a very good thing.
In a new post on her Instagram, Maria Kanellis has said that she is getting ready to start the process of returning to WWE TV. She will be down in Florida training in early August, with no date or even range of dates for when she might return. Maria and her husband Mike debuted at Money in the Bank 2017 but went on a hiatus due to being pregnant, which has kept her off TV since, save for a one off appearance at Raw 25 in January.
Hmmmm… mommy is ready to get back to work. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of all ages come see the most talked about couple in wrestling prior to joining the greatest show on earth, WWE. Imagine what could happen if self made talent could meet the biggest marketing machine of them all? An over night success is when experience meets opportunity. A Superstar is when a talent meets WWE TV time. I’ll be down in Florida at the beginning of August 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. #unscriptedreality #themoon #backtowork #firstlady #milkmoney Just call me mommy the money maker!!
I’d say this has some star power.
Opinion: I’m not sure how far the two of them can go under WWE standards but there is certainly star power in Maria. She’s one of the best performers the company has in the division and while she’s not likely to wrestle anytime soon, she’s incredibly valuable no matter what she does. Getting her back on TV would be a good thing for WWE and certainly for Mike, who has done nothing in her absence.
Do you want Maria back on TV? Can she be a star with her husband? Let us know in the comments below.
