Mike Bennett Discusses His Time In The Kingdom & Honor No More, Matt Taven


During a recent interview with Sportskeeda’s Kevin Kellam, Impact Wrestling star Mike Bennett commented on being a part of the Kingdom and Honor No More, his friendship with Matt Taven, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:


On who he’d choose if he had to pick between working with Paul Heyman or knowing Matt Taven: “This isn’t a knock on him but I wouldn’t know Paul Heyman and that’s easy. Like, it’s easy. Taven, he’s my best friend in the whole world. It’s like, my wife’s my best friend, and then Matt Taven is right next to her. He officiated my wedding. He was the first person we called when I was getting clean and sober. He’s been there for me through everything, and I just love that dude like a family member. So it’s not even a close call for me.”

On whether he’d pick having been in the Kingdom or being part of Honor No More: “Man, that’s tough. See, that’s a tough one. Because The Kingdom had me, Taven, and [Adam] Cole, which were all best friends, and obviously Maria. But Eddie Edwards is such a part of my history and my life and such a strong friend too. It is so hard to pick, but I’m gonna have to go with The Kingdom only because I feel like that was my baby. I just hold it so close to my chest. The name was my idea and it just originated with me, Cole, and Matt Hardy. So it’s just — it’s rare, and I feel like that’s kind of where my career started to take off. So it’s like, that’s special to me.”
