Mike Kanellis asked for his release from WWE and even though his wife Maria might want to deny it, she apparently did too. This has been a huge matter of contention in the Internet Wrestling Community, but Dave Meltzer seemed to explain it on Wrestling Observer Radio.
The Kannellises aren’t the only unhappy Superstars in WWE. The company would actually rather we don’t talk about who’s unhappy. However, that won’t change the fact that they have a lot of very talented people and only so much time on television to feature them.
“Yeah, the story’s not wrong, but it was several weeks ago. I think from what I understand they asked to give notice and they were turned down so they’re gonna work there. You know there’s another one. They were really good in TNA, Mike in some facets and Maria especially was really good in TNA.”
“There’s only so many people who are getting pushed. Before the mentality was just take the money, but right now there’s a lot of people.”
With All Elite Wrestling wanting to be an alternative to WWE it could be very attractive to some Superstars. The fact that they are “changing the wrestling economy” doesn’t hurt either. We will have to wait and see what happens next, but WWE has already promptly denied any recent release requests.
