RAW this past Monday night saw Maria Kanellis reveal to the entire WWE Universe that she is pregnant. It was then reported and confirmed that her pregnancy is not a storyline or an angle but something that was genuine and legitimate. Early last month, Mike and Maria Kanellis signed new contracts with The WWE that will keep them in the company for the next 5 years.
During the time that Mike and Maria Kanellis were offered new contracts from The WWE, the company were already aware that the couple wanted another child and according to a recent report, Mike and Maria Kanellis only learned about the pregnancy about a week and a half ago. The report also states that WWE is apparently trying to make their environment as much modernized as possible for working mothers which also includes having a room for young children at their four major PPV Events as well as scheduled time offs for family events.
Maria Kanellis recently took to her Twitter and stated that she plans on working throughout her entire pregnancy for as long as her doctors give her the approval. Maria also said that she plans on returning to in-ring action after having the baby and getting cleared. Last Monday night’s episode of RAW from The American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas saw the in-ring debut of Mike Kanellis for the red brand when he teamed up with Maria Kanellis (who never even tagged in the match due to her revealing the pregnancy) against the duo of The WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and The RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
The entire match saw Maria Kanellis berate Mike Kanellis which resulted in Becky Lynch tapping out Mike Kanellis. Mike Kanellis was also back in action this past Tuesday night on 205 Live when he teamed up with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari in a losing effort to the team of Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Oney Lorcan & Tony Nese.
