Maria Kanellis-Bennett spoke to PWPonderings about Tony Khan and the invitation to ROH “He has reached out to me,” Kanellis-Bennett told PWPonderings, as quoted by wrestlinginc. “So now we’re just trying to find a time to get on the phone and discuss things further.
So, I’m hopeful that that happens soon. You know, I’m thankful and appreciative that he even reached out to me because I love Ring of Honor. “A piece of my soul might have died a little bit when I was released from the company last year because last year was so fulfilling.
I loved working with that [Ring of Honor women’s] division. So, I’m hopeful that we do find time to communicate. And a lot of our friends are trying to make sure that we get in touch and all that kind of stuff. So, I will keep everybody posted as things come into play”.
Maria Kanellis-Bennett also spoke about the expectations of whether she will be in the seat on the Ring of Honor’s Board of Directors this year. “One of the things I’ve said to people that have been in touch with Tony is I’m not looking to come in and to run things or anything like that,” Kanellis-Bennett said.
“Like, I would love the opportunity to just come in, to grow, to learn as Ring of Honor grows into what it becomes in the future. I had a special position last year. I really did. “And I’m so glad that all the young women who are in wrestling were able to see me in that position because now they know that there is another way to be involved in wrestling, maybe, when you are too banged-up or maybe you want to transition from being in front of the camera to behind the camera.
And for that, I’m forever thankful to Delirious and to Joe Koff, and everybody at Ring of Honor. “But as things move over I do understand that there is training involved. There is getting up to speed for how other people like to run things.
Not just Tony Khan, but production in general. Every company runs differently. So, whether that is producing backstage or writing or being in H.R. or being in talent relations, I’m open to any of those things. I did all of them last year. So, we’ll see what comes of it”.
