- Mike Bennett bashing fans who are amateur wrestlers
Maria Kanellis is the latest professional wrestler to do a podcast show. She is doing the show with her fiancee and ROH star Mike Bennett, in order to raise their stock with wrestling fans. The couple has managed to get their show distributed through iTunes.
Mike Bennett made his official debut for ROH at Proving Ground, an event held in Boston. He worked a match against Daniel Puder, the former Tough Enough competitor and WWE star, and lost. Bennett is considered a young guy who should be with the company for the next several years.
