According to Mike Bennett it is the hardest challenge to follow. It is more like a hard pill to swallow. However it is a way for him to prove what he is capable of and get all the praises. Here are more details regarding Mike Bennett.
Mike Bennett talks about the challenges in WWE
Mike Bennett reveals his thoughts about the challenges he has to face at WWE. Here is what he has to say:
“I think this is the hardest part for me, the hardest pill for me to swallow here. And I think that it’s one of those things where I feel I was just starting to prove what I’m capable of, what I wanted to do, what I wanted to show people. I feel like it didn’t actually start happening until I had my match with Gresh (Jonathan Gresham), and then from there, it felt like me and Taven started cooking on all cylinders.
We started having tag matches against Rhett and Tracy, then we had a tag match against Bandido and Rey Horus, then we had a tag match against Flip and PJ (Black), and then we had a tag match against the Briscoes, and then we had the tag match against Dragon Lee and Kenny (King)’’.
“And it was one of those things where after each match, we kept going to the back and going, ‘holy crap, we’re really cooking right now as a team.’ Some of the producers and the booker were coming up to us and going, ‘you guys are killing it right now as a team.’
Mike Bennet talks about his wife Maria Kanellis
Mike Bennett is currently married to Maria Kanellis. She is the in charge of Ring of Honor’s Women’s division. In this interview Mike also reveals how his wife is dealing with the upcoming changes in ROH. Here is what he has to say:
“She’s Maria. She handles everything like Maria does,” Bennett said. “I won’t sugarcoat it, she was devastated. This was her dream job, and she said to me not too long before that phone call where everything was told us, she said to me, ‘in my career, this is the happiest that I’ve ever been.’ And I remember thinking that, and I looked at her and I said, ‘because it was what you’re meant to do.’
Maria has done a ton of cool things in her career, but to watch her with those other girls, and to watch everything come together, and to watch her and Bobby Cruise just kind of work together and take something that was pretty much dead in the water, and in a matter of six months make it one of the most talked about things in all of wrestling, it’s a testament to her and Bobby Cruise and the girls that she brought in’’.
