Last week Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Mike, who had successful runs in Ring of Honor, New Japan and Impact Wrestling before signing with WWE, recently asked for his release from the company. Because of the suddenly ultra-competitive nature of the wrestling business, and virtually every promotion including AEW looking to scoop up talent, he was obviously not granted his release.
For what it’s worth, Maria did NOT work last year’s inaugural 30-Woman Royal Rumble match, as she was pregnant at the time. She did return to work the 20-Woman Battle Royale at WWE Evolution this past October, and has been appearing alongside her husband on 205 Live.
