Maria Kanellis-Bennett returns to ROH, announces The Experience


Maria Kanellis Bennett has returned to ROH.

A video was posted on ROH’s social media showing Bennett talking about The Experience. She is seen in the video saying she wants fans to thrive, and wants ROH to “be ours”. The video ended with Maria saying she wanted her voice, and our voices, to be heard.

ROH wrote the following about The Experience on their website:

Ring of Honor has always strived to give the best wrestling fans on the planet what they want. Now the fans will have an open forum to tell us directly what they want.

In January, ROH takes The Experience to the next level of fan engagement by empowering the members of Honor Nation to make their voices heard.

The Experience is not a singular event. It’s a movement.

Fans are encouraged to join the ROH The Experience Facebook group to share their thoughts and opinions about all things ROH.

Which outside talents do you want to see in ROH? Which ROH stars should be getting title shots? What match stipulations do you want to see?

ROH wants you to #ChooseYourHonor.

Maria Kanellis Bennett is leading the charge for The Experience. She made the announcement about the groundbreaking concept on ROH’s social media platforms.

“Ring of Honor has cultivated an environment where the wrestlers and the fans are the experience,” Kanellis Bennett said. “I want wrestlers to thrive and I want to give you the fans what you truly desire.

“I want Ring of Honor to be yours. No … I want Ring of Honor to be ours.”

Both Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett were released from WWE back in April, with the company citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason for wide-ranging cutbacks. She originally appeared in ROH from 2011 to 2015, calling herself the First Lady of ROH. 

Mike Bennett has also returned to the company recently, reuniting with former Kingdom stablemate Matt Taven.
