Officials in Lucha Underground know that they need to pick up some recognizable faces if they want to reach the numbers that they were shooting for. Their latest target appears to be Maria Kanellis, who would also bring along her husband Mike Bennett. The couple recently worked for ROH but are said to be free agents right now because management is having some financial issues. They are also being heavily recruited by other wrestling promotions.

Since there are financial restrictions being placed on ROH, Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett are both working without a contract at the moment. Other promotions have taken notice and are targeting them for deals. Their popularity has risen enough that New Japan has expressed interest in signing them. The belief is that the real life couple is interested in the deal on a short term basis, as they have other options available in the United States.
