Though not confirmed at this point where the couple is headed once their respective contracts expire with Ring of Honor one thing is almost for certain and that is neither will be returning to ROH with a new contract. The early part of the year sees numerous top ROH star's contracts expiring including: ReDragon, Jay Lethal, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and others. It would have been tough for Ring of Honor to resign everyone, because retaining your roster especially when the company is continuously growing is one of the hardest things for any company to do. The only question that I am wondering is if Mike & Maria aren't staying with ROH where will they end up and have their contracts with the company expired already.
If the latter is the case and they are free agents then I applauded all the parties involved for not spoiling the surprise. As of this writing it does seem as though Mike will likely end up in the most unlikely of places and if your thinking NXT then we aren't thinking a like. I don't want to spoil the potential surprise, but if your aware of the rumors going around for upcoming debut this week this you may know who I'm referring to. I could also be extremely wrong which is another reason why I'm not pushing the idea it's definitely him.
I always thought that Mike had tremendous potential when he was a singles wrestler, but was also little green and needed sometime to learn how to work. His team with Taven was by far the best thing that could've happened to both Matt and Mike and if it is over then Mike's future isn't the only one with question marks all over it.
