Ring of Honor Star Michael Bennett joined Pro Wrestling Powerhouse
Radio on November 26, 2013 to discuss his upcoming match at Ring of
Honor “Final Battle 2013” with Kevin Steen.
Bennett gave us his candid thoughts on a variety of topics. Not only
does he talk about the pro wrestling business, but also thoughts on some
social issues in America.
On His Match w/ Kevin Steen: “Final Battle is definitely ROH’s biggest
show. We like to say it’s our WrestleMania, but I always think it’s
better than WrestleMania.”
“I have always wanted to work with Kevin and I knew we had something
special as soon as I stepped in the ring with him.”
“I think this match is going to pleasantly surprise a lot of people. It
is going to be exciting, but it’s going to be extremely brutal too.”
Recent knee injury suffered that he has yet to talk about:
“About a month ago, I dislocated my knee and I’ve been rehabbing it
ever since. I’ll be good to go by Final Battle, but I haven’t told
Thoughts on how Obamacare can affect independent pro wrestlers:
“Unfortunately, I know far too many people in wrestling who don’t have
health care. As I said, you blow out your knee unexpectedly and you’re
going to have medical bills that completely screw you. Not a lot of guys
in wrestling make enough money to pay for those medical bills.”
Thoughts on John Cena:
“I think he is awesome. I think he is one of the best ever. The guy has
been on top for 10 years. Not even Stone Cold or The Rock were on top
for 10 years. I don’t care what people say: he sells out arenas, he
sells merchandise, he makes movies…he’s a bonafide superstar.
We also talked to Michael Bennett about physical fitness, steroids in
pro wrestling, what’s been up with his fiancé Maria Kanellis, his
thoughts on Total Divas and much more in this near 40 minute interview!
Pro Wrestling Powerhouse Radio was also joined by independent wrestling
standout, Alex Reynolds, to discuss FWE Wrestling “Open Weight Grand
Prix” on December 7th in Corona, Queens, New York.
And of course we talked about current events in professional wrestling
in WWE, TNA and much more!
