Hang on a few weeks. It’s pretty rare for a wrestler to get a second chance, but in the case of Maria Kanellis, she is getting a second chance in WWE while her husband Mike gets his first chance. The pair was entertaining while in both Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling but they haven’t been able to showcase themselves very much in WWE. That may change in the future, though it seems to be taking a little longer than expected.
They weren’t around for long so let’s see how they showed up.
In a new post on her Instagram page, Kanellis has announced that she has suffered a broken wrist during her training for a return to WWE. She will be spending six weeks in a cast, which would put her back in late September. Her goal is to be back by Evolution, which takes place on October 28. Kanellis and her husband joined WWE last June but she has been off TV since September 27 due to her pregnancy, save for a one off appearance at Raw 25 in January.
Opinion: I’m not sure how much good Kanellis is going to do in the ring but that’s never been her strong suit. She’s not the greatest in-ring performer but she’s quite the talker and character. If WWE lets her be something similar to what she was in Impact Wrestling or especially in Ring of Honor, she could be quite valuable and maybe even make her husband seem like that much bigger of a deal.
What do you want to see Kanellis do when she comes back? How much of a success can she be? Let us know in the comments below.
