Name: Michael Bennett
Born: May 16, 1985
Occupation: Professional wrestler and actor
Mike Bennett was born in Carver, Massachusetts on May 16, 1985. He has three siblings.
Mike studied at Carver High School and graduated in 2003.
He first started dating Maria Kanellis, a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) performer in 2011. They were engaged soon after and they have been married since October 2014. The couple presently resides in Providence, Rhode Island.
Mike started his professional wrestling career when he was still in high school and made his in-ring debut in 2002. For years, Mike toured the independent scene and performed for a wide variety of promotions, including the East Coast Wrestling Association, the New England Wrestling Association (NEWA), Eastern Pro Wrestling (EPW), Chikara and Top Rope Promotions.
He had brief stints in both WWE and Total Nonstop Action (now Impact Wrestling) in the early part of his pro-wrestling career.
Mike got his first big break when he was signed by Ring of Honor (ROH), where he honed his craft, made a name for himself and won multiple championships. After seven years with the company, he left in 2015 and, alongside his wife, Maria, signed with TNA in 2016. They left the promotion after just one year.
In June 2017, Mike and his wife made their much-anticipated WWE debut at Money in the Bank. They are billed as Mike and Maria Kanellis and compete on the SmackDown! Live brand. He is also in a feud with Sami Zayn.
Outside of wrestling, Mike has appeared in a handful of films, including “Penance,” “Almost Mercury” and “The Santa Files.”
We estimate that Mike Bennett’s net worth is $3 million (2017).
So how much is $3 million really?
$3 million could help you launch your own pro-wrestling promotion and even tape several episodes to potentially sell to a network. $3 million could also pay for the contracts of a few WWE performers.
