Maria Kanellis details her contractual situation with IMPACT Wrestling and talks about where she would like to be moving forward in wrestling.
Prior to Ring of Honor going on hiatus, Maria Kanellis was the figurehead of the entire women's division. Currently, she is back to being an on-screen character for IMPACT Wrestling as part of the rogue group, Honor no More.
Even though they have been a huge part of IMPACT TV as of late, Maria Kanellis as she is on a pay-per-appearance agreement with the promotion and that ends following the upcoming IMPACT Wrestling shows in Poughkeepsie, New York. Poughkeepsie will host Rebellion on April 23 and a taping on April 24 at the Majed J. Nesheiwat Convention Center (formerly the Mid-Hudson Civic Center).
Maria Kanellis also spoke candidly about wanting more of a position like the kind that she held in Ring of Honor and keeping a close eye on where the promotion goes next.
"So I had a paid per deal with IMPACT and that comes to a close in Poughkeepsie," she said to K&S WrestleFest during a virtual signing. "So after that, we'll see where we go from there. I mean, I'm sure there's tons of chaos that we can still have over at IMPACT but I'm not exclusive. With Ring of Honor, we don't know exactly what it's going to be. I ran the women's division last year I absolutely loved it. It was really like the most rewarding year of my entire career. So if I can help in any way, even if it's just shadowing somebody, I think that's where I would like to take my career next. Of course, I'd still love to manage and add to a division in any way I can, but yeah, it's gonna be interesting. The next few months are really going to be interesting to see what Ring of Honor becomes."
At the ROH Supercard of Honor media scrum, Tony Khan noted that he would be interested in talking to Maria regarding the ROH women's division.
