What’s the story?

Mike Kanellis has taken to social media so as to reveal that he and Maria are moving into their new house this Wednesday.

Expounding upon the same, Mike recalled the time when Maria cried herself to sleep, as well as how WWE changed their life.

In case you didn’t know…

Maria Kanellis was one of the WWE’s top female talent from 2004 until her departure from the promotion in 2010.

Kanellis performed on the independent professional wrestling circuit from 2010 and has been in a relationship with Mike Bennett since ’11.

The heart of the matter

Maria Kanellis returned to the WWE last year, alongside her husband who was billed as Mike Kanellis—with the couple making its debut on SmackDown Live.

Over the past few months, Mike Kanellis has been considerably vocal about how the WWE has changed their life for good. Accordingly, Mike has now sent out a Tweet; asserting that he & Maria are set to move into their own house, their very first house, this Wednesday.

Furthermore, Mike narrated a rather chilling story that back in 2012, after an indie wrestling show, Maria cried herself to sleep, as they literally had no money to eat and couldn’t even order a pizza. Mike added—“Never stop dreaming, never give up, trust the process!”

What’s next?

Mike Kanellis presently performs for the WWE’s SmackDown Live brand—primarily competing at WWE house shows.

Meanwhile, Maria Kanellis is on maternity leave, as she & Mike are expecting a baby girl later this year.

Author’s take

Mike & Maria truly represent the ‘Power of Love’—which, ironically enough, is their gimmick on SmackDown Live.

After struggling to make ends meet on the indies, Mike & Maria have finally bought their own house, which goes to show that they’re living, breathing proof that hard work & perseverance pays.
