Mike Bennett, the former WWE star recently joined Nick Hausman WrestlingInc Daily podcast and shared his thoughts on returning to Ring of Honor(ROH).
Mike Bennett said he felt like Christmas morning
Bennett had previously said that things did not settle for him at WWE and returning to ROH was the correct thing to do.
During the podcast, he spoke about his comeback to the promotion and compared it Christmas Morning. He also explained his statement.
“It felt like home if that makes any sense. It felt comfortable. It felt normal. I became a pro wrestler because I love pro wrestling, and there was a time in my career where having matches and getting in the ring, you got excited about it. It was like Christmas morning. You couldn’t wait for it, and [to be] brutally honest, for the last three years, I lost that feeling completely. I wasn’t excited about work. I wasn’t excited about matches because they were micromanaged.”
He compared working with WWE and ROH and revealed he was excited to be back at the promotion.
They were so picked apart. You weren’t creatively fulfilled. I never got excited about wrestling, and I would say this match with Vinny was the first time I’ve genuinely been excited about getting into a ring. I was genuinely excited. I couldn’t wait for every aspect of it because I knew I was going to get to be myself again in a company that I wanted to be in, and I just felt like myself again. I felt like it was Christmas morning all over again.”
