Mike Kanellis never received the push he was hyped to get in WWE. Then he disappeared for a while. He was dealing with an addiction and although he didn’t go to rehab, it is something he was able to overcome.
Kanellis got in fantastic shape, but he still wasn’t appearing on 205 Live. Mike and his wife Maria Kanellis reportedly asked for their WWE releases, but both were denied.
Mike Kanellis sat out of the Royal Rumble, but at least he got to watch Maria do her thing with a great view. Today he posted a video saying that nobody should give a crap about what other people think about them.
“Today I want to talk about something that is extremely important and extremely important to overcome if you wanna be successful in any avenue of your life. You genuinely have to not care what people think about you. You genuinely have to not give a crap what people think about you.”
Kanellis said that this is something he still struggles with, but “the only person who has to live with yourself is you.” He also mentioned the anonymous nature of the internet and how people can say anything they like while hiding behind their keyboards.
