Mike Kanellis On WWE Matching His TNA Deal & More | News


Pro Wrestling star Mike Kanellis was recently on Swings & Mrs where he spoke about a number of topics. Including his WWE career, his contract talks between TNA/WWE and more. You can watch the video below and highlights are from Wrestling Inc

Mike Kanellis on signing with WWE-

“It was really cool for me, the whole build up was interesting because we had been signed three months prior to our debut and we were just sitting at home. We signed in March and we didn’t debut until June. WWE was trying to think of what to do with us, but I almost didn’t sign.

I nearly went back to TNA as it was at the time because they offered me a deal which was really good money so when I reached out to WWE I was going back and forth and I said I couldn’t take any less money than what TNA was paying me and they finally came back with a matched deal and that they would put me on the main roster – I couldn’t say no.”

On why WWE should debut more talent on the main roster instead of NXT-

“I wish they would go back to that, I wish they wouldn’t be so stubborn that talent have to go to NXT, there are a lot of talents which don’t need to.

On requesting his release on social media-

“I thought it would be awful in all honesty. But it’s not been too bad to be honest, I’ve gotten time to spend with my daughter, with Maria especially since she’s almost due to have our second baby. it’s been nice because the last time, when we had Freddie, it was 22 hours ad then I had to go to WrestleMania.

“So it’s been nice to have downtime and be with my family. From a career standpoint it’s boring because I like to do stuff and I like to move and constantly on he go – my life has always been that. But I’m trying to be present in the time and not focus on time I can’t control.”

And check out our free Pro Wrestling Events Calendar for hundreds of events from around the world.

The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more like announced matches and preview videos, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event and if we’re able to update it in time. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with United States & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on any of these event pages (also our news). If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it.
