Mike Kanellis was cut from his WWE contract last week. This came months after he and his wife Maria Kanellis signed new five-year contracts worth $250,000 a year. This was certainly something that Kanellis wasn’t expecting during a pandemic.
Plenty of WWE Superstars dropped merchandise after their release. A couple of them like Zack Ryder and Drake Maverick referenced their WWE merchandise. No Way Jose took a new spin on his old WWE name.
Mike Kanellis is back to being Mike Bennett once again. His new t-shirt available on PW Tees has a cartoon graphic of his face with big letters saying “NONESSENTIAL WRESTLER” over his face.
You can check out the post below where Mike Bennett shared this new design. It might be worth noting that WWE could have paid for all released staff with the executive dividends that they plan to hand out in July.
What do you think about this new merchandise? Which former WWE Superstar has the best merchandise so far?
