He’d like to do something else. There are all kinds of places to go in wrestling, though there are far fewer at the top of the charts. WWE may have several different brands for talent to perform on, but the spots are still hard to come by. Some wrestlers jump back and forth between brands and now one of them is interested in switching spots and trying his hand on another WWE show.
Over the weekend, 205 Live and Monday Night Raw superstar Mike Kanellis sent out a Tweet saying that he has wrestled everywhere in WWE other than in NXT or NXT UK and would be interested in changing that. Kanellis has wrestled infrequently on the main roster, with his most recent Monday Night Raw match taking place on July 15 in a loss against Zack Ryder, which lasted four seconds. Various wrestlers have made the move over to NXT UK or NXT in recent weeks, such as Tyler Breeze, Fandango and Killian Dain.
Man who wants to wrestle more.

When Kanellis is fired up, he can do some impressive stuff. Check out one of his biggest matches on 205 Live:
Opinion: It’s almost sad to watch Kanellis from time to time as his wife seems to be the most important part of his career and there isn’t much that he can do when she is on maternity leave. At the same time though, he certainly seems ready to try and do whatever he can wherever he can. That’s a good attitude for someone to have and maybe he’ll get the break he has been looking for someday.
What do you think of Kanellis? Can he succeed in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
