Quote Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have finished up with Ring of Honor as of yesterday's TV Taping. The pair and ROH were not able to come to terms on a new deal.

Kanellis and Bennett's departure was not really a surprise and their exit had been expected internally within ROH for some time. There were signs dating back at least 4-6 weeks that ROH and the couple were not on the same page after Kanellis wrote on Twitter that ROH was advertising her for dates after her contract was done.

With their departure from ROH, it also likely means that the pair are done with New Japan Pro Wrestling.

While there have been reports floating around Bennett's partner Matt Taven was also done this weekend, those would be incorrect as he is signed with ROH through March or Apil 2016 we are told.

Kanellis and Bennett, when saying their goodbyes, told several different people we heard from that they were TNA-bound and would start with the promotion in January.

I know there was some WWE interest in the pair but it seems TNA have stumped them for once.

When you look at it, it could be a smarter move for them than WWE. With TNA, the roster is lacking depth so that would secure them a pretty good spot rather quickly. I think Michael Bennett & Maria Kanellis will be over quite frankly.

I've heard TNA are trying to recruit a load of talent for their Pop TV debut, names who have worked for them before and several that haven't, AJ Styles and Goldberg were among the top names linked but realistically talent like Bennet and Kanellis are more likely options for them.

Trouble is the TNA brand is so tarnished within the industry now it's very hard for any talent to take them seriously and consider them a viable employment option with a future, I would think if a WWE/NXT offer is on the table there are few talents who would choose TNA over it.

Depends on what's being offered to them. Read that Maria & Michael Bennett are getting guaranteed contracts + maybe even working for New Japan as well.
