Mike Knox Discusses His Lack of Push in WWE


Former WWE Superstar Mike Knox was recently interviewed by Wrestling Inc. to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Knox was asked about being part of WWE’s Elimination Chamber match back in 2009 at the No Way Out pay-per-view (PPV), and the lack of push he received in WWE. Here are the highlights:

Participating in the Elimination Chamber match at 2009’s No Way Out PPV: “It was a huge honor to be placed in that match. Not too many people can say they got to participate in something that iconic. Do I wish I had time to showcase what I was about? Do I think I could have killed it in there? Could it have been a huge turning point in my career? Of course, but that also wasn’t my call, and ‘what might have beens’ can drive ya nuts.”

Lack of push received by WWE: “The wrestling game is kind of like a roller coaster. Sometimes that slow build is like the start of every great coaster, when they slowly pull you up just to pull the bottom out and send you rushing down with the big drop.

“I was asked by a few guys to write for my own character, but at that time I had no clear vision of what they expected from me with all that. Character-wise, I just never had a path. They were always switching me around with one thing or another. I believe the writers had the same problem. I am sure that didn’t help.”
