June 19, 2017

Especially assuming they're members of the SmackDown Live roster, Kanellis and Bennett could essentially fill the void left by The Miz and Maryse. And sure enough, during Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, they made a big debut as "Mike and Maria Kanellis" (an incredible choice), appearing onstage by standing on an enormous heart, and addressing the crowd via headset microphones. Mike Bennett has never had a chance in WWE, but it looks as if he's about to get it.

Oh, and Rusev is set to return on Tuesday night too.

Join us here later this evening for live play-by-play results coverage of the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view.

Pakistan crush India by 180 runs to lift Champions Trophy
Put in to bat by Kohli, Pakistan rode on an aggressive 114 from youngster Fakhar Zaman , who made the most of an early reprieve. Amir had been ruled out of Pakistan's semi-final against England due to a back spasm during a practice session.

Keller leads Charleston to 3-0 win over Columbia
Matt Frawley (4-1, 1.45) got the win and came in for relief of Green to work two innings, allowing one hit and four strikeouts. Tebow lost the grip on the bat and sent it soaring deep into the second level seats on the first base side of the stands.

Blues protect 11 players in advance of Wednesday's expansion draft
McPhee said Sunday that a team must offer the Golden Knights an asset "better" than the player he can claim in the draft. Another odd list is from the Minnesota Wild, who chose to protect Jonas Brodin over Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella .

Sportskeeda reported that WWE had made an interesting tweet on Friday which said that "six women" were going to make history when they compete in an MITB Ladder Match. The cut back to the stunned announce team: also great. Needless to say, but WWE is getting two key talents added to their roster this week. During their runs in Ring of Honor, New Japan and TNA, he was Mike or Michael Bennett, and she was Maria Kanellis or Kanellis-Bennett.

Plenty of wrestlers have gone on to more success outside of WWE than they enjoyed inside it, and Kanellis is among that group.

According to, the couple was spotted Saturday night in St. Louis, which is the site of tonight's Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
