Mike "The Prodigy" Bennett recently appeared as a guest on the DAZN/Sporting News show for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the former WWE Superstar known as Mike Kanellis explained why he didn't enjoy his run in the industry leader for sports entertainment, reveals the last time he did enjoy himself in the pro wrestling business and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the new interview with the Ring Of Honor (ROH) Wrestling talent.

On the last time he was happy working in the wrestling business prior to signing with Ring Of Honor (ROH): "Probably in Impact. We did a segment in Impact, it was a wedding segment with Allie, Braxton and Maria. That was probably the last time I actually enjoyed working, believe it or not. That was probably like almost four years ago, where I was genuinely happy enjoying myself. I loved my time over at Impact. So I had a good time going there."

On not enjoying his run in WWE: "The last three years at WWE, I just wasn’t happy. It’s not a knock on WWE, they have a culture there. That’s how they run their business. Some people work jobs that they hate all the time. And it’s just they come to an agreement that I’m just not happy here and some people are and some people are not. It just happened that this place isn’t for me. I don’t like how it functions. It doesn’t meet my values."
