Maria Kanellis returns, Mike Bennett debuts at WWE Money in the Bank

Not only will it feature the return of Daniel Bryan, the possible TV debut of Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis, but it looks like Rusev will be making his return this week as well.

Bennett rose to prominence in Ring Of Honor, where he paired up with his real life wife Kanellis to much success.

Maria has not featured in WWE since 2010. On the other hand, fans who watch promotions other than the WWE, or remember her time in the company fondly seem to have embraced the pair's debut in the company.

PW Insider is reporting that both Bennett and Maria are set to make their debuts this week on SmackDown Live. And sure enough, during Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, they made a big debut as "Mike and Maria Kanellis" (an wonderful choice), appearing onstage by standing on an enormous heart, and addressing the crowd via headset microphones. She said their goal in WWE is to "promote the power of love".

Maria is a one-time former TNA Knockouts Champion. Needless to say, but WWE is getting two key talents added to their roster this week.

It had been rumored that Bennett and Kanellis were heading to WWE following their departure from Impact Wrestling earlier this year. However, the couple would part ways with Impact in March and make their way to WWE.
