Michael Bennett (born May 16, 1985) is an American professional wrestler, currently signed to Ring of Honor (ROH). He wrestled for WWE under the ring name Mike Kanellis. After a few years on the independent circuit, Bennett made his Ring of Honor (ROH) debut in 2008; his character was named The Prodigy. With his then-girlfriend Maria Kanellis, he worked as part of "The Kingdom" stable, winning the ROH World Tag Team Championship with Matt Taven. ROH's talent-sharing agreement with New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) enabled the tag team to make limited appearances in Japan, where they won NJPW's IWGP Tag Team Championship. Bennett and Taven also operate a wrestling school in West Warwick, Rhode Island. Bennett left ROH in late-2015 to sign with rival promotion Impact Wrestling (then called TNA [Total Nonstop Action Wrestling]), where he won the Impact X Division Championship. In 2017, Bennett joined his wife Maria in WWE (whose maiden name was used as his character's surname), where held the WWE 24/7 Championship twice.
