Reason why Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have been off WWE TV

For those of you that have asked why Mike Kanellis (Mike Bennett) and Maria Kanellis have been off of WWE television in recent weeks, it’s because Mike has been dealing with issues far more important.

Maria noted on Instagram that this is the first week of her husband’s recovery from prescription drugs. Maria noted that his issues spiraled out of control after he dislocated his knee 4 years ago and then broke his ribs. We wish him the best and it’s admirable that he realized that he needed help and decided to take action. We wish him well and hope to see him back on WWE TV in the near future.

Maria’s post is below:

This was the first week of my husband’s recovery from prescription drugs. This was the hardest week of my life. People try and give advice or you can read every book but the truth is there is no right way for a person to get clean. My husband was addicted to prescription drugs and I didn’t know. You blame yourself. You blame the business. You blame God. But, anyone can become addicted. No one is safe. A glamorous job doesn’t protect you from addiction. It truly makes you wonder about everyone around you. Is that person hurting? What’s that person’s story? In these photos you see Mike in the hospital, finding his appetite, trying to workout, having a match for the first time at WWE, and playing with my niece with the marks from the Clonidine patch the hospital gave him still on his arm. Addicts don’t look like the people in the movies sometimes. They are just people that took a road they shouldn’t have. Mike is doing great. He channeled all that energy into working out and being healthy. Mike wanted to quit. Now, as we move forward even though the road is hard. It’s the right road. I love you, My Friend. WE believe in you. You are a hero to so many. Keep Fighting. Keep Pushing. Be the Miracle. @therealmichaelbennett #keepingupwithkanellises #holdhandsnothate #poweroflove
