Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis may wind up elsewhere if they don’t work out a new deal with Ring of Honor. According to the latest Wrestling Observer newsletter, Bennett and Kanellis are at a contract impasse with Ring of Honor but they are continuing to work for ROH. They have some Japan tours booked this year because she is loved there. Kanellis and Bennett have been in talks for months and the belief is that both of them will open up talks with TNA and Lucha Underground.
Although TNA is looking to sign new names, they have a tight budget unless you’re a star like Alberto El Patron.
AJ Styles (who may be the IWGP Champion by next month) is scheduled to work a Ring of Honor show on February 21st in Atlanta.
