Mike Kanellis talks about his Cruiserweight Championship goals

Mike Kanellis is best known for his time in Impact Wrestling, Ring of Honor (ROH) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) under the ring name Mike Bennett. He is a former TNA X Division Champion, ROH World Tag Team Champion, and IWGP Tag Team Champion.

Bennett and Matt Taven operate a wrestling school in West Warwick, Rhode Island. On the March 19 episode of 205 Live, Kanellis was able to defeat Akira Tozawa after a distraction from Maria, snapping his losing streak. He went on to feud with Tozawa over the following weeks, culminating in a no-disqualification match won by Tozawa.

In the latest edition of the 411 Wrestling Interviews Podcast, Kanellis talked about his Cruiserweight Championship goals: “I feel ten times — I never felt as good as I’ve felt right now. I watch back some of my matches, and then I watch myself now, and I’m like, ‘Oh geez.’ I move way better.

I get up better, I fall down better. I feel like everything I do in the ring is just better. I feel like I’m more flexible, and that’s just, you know, I’m putting in the time now. I’m preparing myself. I think I took a lot for granted, and to be brutally honest I think I took a lot of my runs before in different companies for granted. And I always say this: getting to WWE and falling flat on my face was the best thing that ever happened to me."
