What's the story?

Mike and Maria Kanellis may not be lighting up 205 Live but the former WWE Diva of the Year is surely turning heads on Twitter as she put out quite a revealing photo of her herself on the social media website.

Maria's scorching post naturally got the fans talking. A section of the fans aggressively targeted her husband Mike Kanellis for not regulating what she posts on her social media handles.

Mike replied with a well-worded tweet and shut down the bunch of absurd fans.

In case you didn't know...

Maria Kanellis' pro wrestling career began with the WWE in 2004 after which she was signed up by the company despite coming fifth in the Divas Search contest. She would eventually be released by WWE. Maria joined Ring of Honor along with her then-boyfriend Mike Bennet. The duo tied the knot in 2014 and would have brief stints in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), Impact Wrestling and other indie promotions.

Maria would return to WWE in 2017 along with Mike, who would make his debut in Vince McMahon's company. However, the couple's run has been quite underwhelming thus far as they have been thoroughly underutilized on 205 Live.

There were reports of Maria and Mike asking for their WWE releases in January, which were later refuted by Maria.

The heart of the matter

Mike was subjected to a lot of hate online after his wife posted the photo in question. He responded by stating that Maria's choices are hers to make and that he backs his beautiful wife for showing off her gorgeous body. He added that most of the photos on Maria's social media profiles are taken by him.

Here's what he had to say:


What's next?

As announced by Drake Maverick on 205 Live this week, Mike will finally get his opportunity next week as he will face a top Cruiserweight on the upcoming episode.

The 205 Live GM also stated that if Mike loses, he and his manager-cum-wife would have to leave the division. The Power of Love is in threat of losing its steam.
