In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio to promote the debut of the weekly UWN Primetime Live pay-per-views, NWA World Champion Nick Aldis discussed his upcoming match against Mike Bennett and why he feels that Bennett will be motivated heading into their match.

“Mike was very forthcoming and open about it right out of the gate to embrace that he’s a recovering addict. The entire objective with this is, Mike Bennett doesn’t deserve, for his reputation, to be the character that was presented on WWE television, he deserves to be presented as Mike Bennett in the way he wants to be presented.

The intention was, right out the gate, to make people say now I’m talking to the real person, this is the guy behind the character. As for me, look yes I think that it’s important to me that we can embrace that while I can present myself in a certain way and I take pride in that and it’s been a big part of my success with the company. It doesn’t mean I have to protect the business, it’s all real, I didn’t borrow these suits, they’re mine, I didn’t borrow the Jag parked outside, it’s mine. At the same time, yeah, I’m a father, I’m a husband, I have a family and I do all that stuff and what I do, I do it for them.

It’s to create that contrast and Mike Bennett is not going to walk out on the 15th carrying his kids saying, I’m Daddy Mike, he’s going to come out as Mike Bennett ready to kick a**. It’s wanting to show the audience that there’s a motivation to all this, there’s a reason why we go through all this.”
