Maria Kanellis’ initial run in WWE saw her enter a storyline with Santino Marella for a while, until she eventually worked with other stars such as John Cena. She and her husband Mike Bennett were let go by WWE couple of years ago as part of the budget cuts.

One of the most widely-discussed topics in pro wrestling last year was regarding released WWE Superstars receiving their belongings in a trash bag. This was revealed by Mickie James back in April 2021.

While speaking on “Interviews With James, Maria Kanellis talked about the first time she received a trash bag in WWE. She revealed who was the first person to send her a trash bag.

”I received my first garbage bag … underneath John Laurinaitis. This situation has been going on for a bit and they really should hire outside HR departments to come in and do some audits on what’s going on within the company. … Hire therapists if people need mental help. I just think they need to take a look within and start dealing with some of these real-life adult problems.”


Now that Vince McMahon is no longer in charge, perhaps fans might get to see Maria Kanellis return as well. It remains to be seen whether that will happen or not.
