Reason Behind SmackDown Live Wrestler Not Getting A Push, Updated Match-Card For SummerSlam 2017

Reason Behind SmackDown Live Wrestler Not Getting A Push

According to The Dirty Sheets podcast, there’s a reason why SmackDown Live wrestler Mike Kanellis isn’t getting a push on the blue brand and gets used as an enhancement talent most of the times. His lack of push has to do with the physical shape he’s in. WWE officials think he’s lazy and not in the shape that he should be. Below is what Dirty Sheets’ source said:

“Mike signed two months before he came in and it looks like he just sat on his couch. The company doesn’t get it. He’s one of the guys who said it’s his dream to be here and he doesn’t even get in shape for it.”

This might be surprising to many as Mike is certainly in a better physical shape than former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose and the guy who’s getting a WWE Title shot at SummerSlam 2017, Shinsuke Nakamura.
