SPOILER: EXPECTED WWE DEBUT & RETURNS THIS WEEK

By Mike Johnson on 2017-06-17 09:42:00

As we reported earlier this week in the Elite section of PWInsider.com, Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis-Bennett are expected to officially start on WWE TV this week.  There were plans to start them last month but those plans were pushed back.  For Kanellis, this would be her WWE return following a run that began with the Diva Search in 2004 and ended in 2010.  The couple first began working together in Ring of Honor and New Japan in 2011 and moved on to TNA where Bennett was given "The Miracle" moniker.  The pair left TNA at the onset of 2017.

Bennett broke into the business in 2002 and was originally trained by the late Steve Bradley and Bob Evans.  After working the New England scene, he was picked up by Ring of Honor in 2010 and was the nucleus of the Kingdom act for some time before he and Kanellis moved to TNA.

As we noted earlier this week in the Elite section as well, Rusev is slated to return at this week's Smackdown taping as well following shoulder surgery last March.
