Ring of Honor is one of the premier wrestling promotions on the indy circuit and the WWE seems to have really focused on getting a lot of their “stars of the future” from them. Mike Bennett can prove to be the next one to make the jump.
Bennett recently visited the WWE training centre and had this to say about his experience:
“I loved it. They push you harder than anyone else. I was always ready to make any sacrifices to get into wrestling and that’s exactly what the camp was: weeding out the guys who don’t want it enough. It was clear after the first day and a half who really wanted it. They told us to show them something regardless of our experience. But at the end of the day, I decided to stick with ROH because I have a lot more to offer. My contract’s up in a few months, so I don’t know where I’ll end up.”
Mike went on to say that he’s not ruling out the WWE in the future:
“As far as wrestling goes, I would love to stay in ROH, but I also want to be the best. I hope to get back to NJPW soon as well. I have a lot of good things to say about them. I’m at a good place right now in wrestling and it’s only going to get better. But I would certainly love to be at WWE at some point.”
