Backstage News On The Mike & Maria Kanellis Storyline From RAWJuly 2, 2019
Last night WWE highlighted Mike & Maria Kanellis on RAW and it was very interesting.
On RAW last night Mike and Maria Kanellis were in a mixed tag team match against Universal Champion Seth Rollins and RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. During the match, Mike was just beaten down by Rollins and Maria was tagged in. Maria did not want to get into the ring and so Becky went after her. Before Becky could attack her she screamed out that she is pregnant.
She would then berate her husband as not being a real man. She said she did not know how Mike could get her pregnant because he is not a man. The two just recently signed a new five-year contract and now they are burying Mike pretty hard.
As far as Maria being pregnant goes, Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Maria did not inform WWE officials that she was pregnant again before signing a new multi-year contract with the company. It is also unclear if she even knew if she was pregnant beforehand or if she did not know till after.
This storyline with Mike is going to be very interesting as time goes on. Eventually, Maria will need to be pulled from the road and when that happens does Mike get sidelined again like he was last time. It was obvious when they signed with the company they also signed him because they wanted Maria and then she got pregnant. They sign them to new deals and weeks later she is pregnant again. One would assume WWE officials can’t be too happy about it.
Mike Kanellis will be featured tonight on 205 Live when he teams with Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari in a six-man tag against Tony Nese, Oney Lorcan, and Jack Gallagher.
