WWE held off on the Smackdown Live debut of Mike and Maria Kanellis but the fans got to see them during one of the commercial breaks. It was just a standard promo and there is still no hint on who they will be feuding with. Instead of calling herself the “First Lady of Wrestling” like she did when she was in Impact Wrestling, she is now referring to herself as the “First Lady of Smackdown Live.”
Basically, Maria talked about being away for 7 years and finding love and being lucky enough to find Mike. By the way, giving Mike her last name is designed to portray him as being whipped because she is the dominant one in the relationship. She is clearly being positioned as the star. Check out their segment in the video below:
On Talking Smack, Daniel Bryan announced that James Ellsworth would be banned from ringside during next week’s Money In The Bank Ladder match. Carmella cried during the segment because she was upset over having her MITB briefcase taken away.
