The past year has seen a change in Michael Bennett. Once seemingly content to sit back and bask in the glow of being a handsome "TV wrestler" with a beautiful woman by his side, recently Bennett has changed his attitude and his ambitions. At the urging of Maria Kanellis, he's started reaching out and taking the power and opportunities he claims he's been denied.
A brutal feud with with Kevin Steen in 2013 presented this new, harder Michael Bennett to the world. But in more recent months, Bennett has focused his bid for power on two of ROH's original stars: The Briscoes.
Bennett and Maria's newly forged alliance with ROH World Champion Adam Cole has put them squarely in the path of Jay and Mark Briscoe. As Jay prepares for the violence of Ladder War V in New Orleans, he and his brother have also had to deal with the physical and psychological attacks by this new power trio.
During a recent tag match in Dayton, Bennett sent Mark Briscoe crashing through a table. Now at Supercard of Honor VIII, Mark has his chance at revenge when he takes on Michael Bennett in a NO DISQUALIFICATION match in New Orleans! Whereas the Bennett who first came to ROH might run from a no DQ stipulation, the new, edgier Michael Bennett has proven his rise to power will be violent. This could get ugly quickly! Be there on April 4th for Mark Briscoe vs. Michael Bennett with Maria Kanellis - No Disqualification!
