Kanellis and her husband Mike Bennett left WWE last year amid other COVID-19 budget cuts. In this new interview, she wonders how Stephanie deals with WWE not doing any pay-per-view women’s empowerment events after the All-Female Evolution show in 2018.
“So you have all these unnecessary pay-per-views, you have the ability to do a female empowerment pay-per-view and you don’t?” I don’t understand, ”Maria said. “I don’t know how Stephanie McMahon handles this.
“Like as a woman, I was very candid about women’s wrestling and women in wrestling. It’s no surprise that as a woman I couldn’t cope with this. If I had all this power in the industry, I couldn’t face this. I have a minimum of power in this area and I fight in the tail to create more opportunities. “
Maria went on and named some of the projects that WWE’s Women’s Division would be involved in if she had the power that Stephanie does.
“If I had that much power, there would be an entire show plus a reality show that actually covers girls live,” she says. “Plus we’d have a makeup line and be on the cover of Vogue saying, ‘Guess what? These women are badass and they are beautiful in themselves. “
Maria and Mike are currently working for ROH having recently signed contracts with the company.
