– Above is backstage video of new RAW Superstar Mike Kanellis after getting sent to the red brand on last night’s Superstar Shakeup episode. Kanellis talks about how his past month has been huge – his wife Maria Kanellis gave birth to their first child, he attended his WrestleMania 34 and he got to meet 2018 WWE Hall of Famer Kid Rock. Kanellis says he started on SmackDown, the land of opportunities, but he searched & searched for that opportunity and realized that they aren’t just handed to you. Kanellis admits he got comfortable and complacent but now he’s on RAW for his new beginning. Kanellis says he will take what he learned on the blue brand and bring it to the red brand. Kanellis promises to not become complacent and comfortable. He says he will focus on the process instead of the outcome and he will rage, rage, rage. Kanellis says he owes that to himself and his wife & daughter watching at home. Mike says he will rage until Monday Night RAW becomes Monday Night Mike.
