Report: Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis-Bennett Heading to WWE, Possibly Debuting on Smackdown is reporting that Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis-Bennett are heading to WWE.  No date was given for the couple to debut with the company, but the duo are expected to be on the Smackdown brand once they appear.  Impact Wrestling had made a late play for them to stay with the company earlier this year, but they opted against that offer.  Other reports by other sites had suggested that the pair would eventually join WWE this year.

Bill Says:  I feel like Mike and Maria are a WWE style act more than they ever were an independent style act.  Mike has a good look to him and he benefited immensely from his year with TNA/Impact, and Maria had a previous run with the company.  That alone seems to not surprise me that they will be going straight to the main roster.  We’ll see if the reports hold water and if and when the couple shows up on WWE television.
