Mike is currently 32-years-old whereas his wife is 35. Mike has an estimated net worth of $3 million, and Maria's estimated net worth is also $3 million. Combined they have an estimated net worth of $6 million which indeed makes them one of the WWE's power couples.
Today, we are going to give insiders about Mike and Maria's marital life, their soon to be born child, and their past affairs.
Mike started dating Maria Kanellis back in June of 2011. They first met at a Northeast Wrestling show, and they were both in relationships at the time (gasp).
Mike revealed this information during an interview. He even added that they hit it off right away but were conservative because they were with other people. After just a few months, things changed in both of their lives and they started messaging each other. This eventually lead to Mike traveling nine hours to meet Maria in Philadelphia.
