Mike Knox ECW #2 Action Figure-$12.99 USD
Mike Knox (born Mike Hettinga on July 17, 1978 in Phoenix, Arizona) is a American professional wrestler. He is signed to World Wrestling Entertainment wrestling in its developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling. He has a profile under the ECW Roster.
Knox was signed to a WWE developmental deal in 2005, and made a handful of appearances on WWE shows, including one appearance as a masked "jihadist" for Muhammad Hassan.
When the ECW brand was launched in June of 2006, Knox was added onto the roster. He debuted on the June 20 episode of ECW on Sci Fi by interfering in Kelly Kelly's striptease segment, coming from the backstage area and covering her with a towel before escorting her off stage. It was later revealed that that Kelly was Knox's (kayfabe) girlfriend, as well as an exhibitionist, and he informed her that he did not appreciate her stripping in front of anyone but him. For his in-ring debut, a win over Danny Doring, Kelly accompanied him to the ringside acting as a valet. Knox was pushed strongly, interfering in matches, and squashing his opponents. He later formed a short-lived tag team with Test before starting a feud with CM Punk, after growing jealous of Kelly Kelly's admiration towards Punk. CM Punk won every match in the feud, including a match which decided a spot in December to Dismember's Elimination Chamber match.
Knox made his pay-per-view debut at Survivor Series 2006 where he teamed up with Rated-RKO, but was the first man eliminated after taking a superkick from Shawn Michaels. His next pay per view appearance saw him abandon Kelly Kelly during a mixed-tag match against Kevin Thorn and Ariel, at December to Dismember, resulting in his team's loss. He then attacked her on the next ECW on Sci Fi episode, breaking the duo up for good. Knox then disappeared after this for a while.
On February 13, 2007, Knox returned to ECW in a losing effort to CM Punk and has not been seen on any ECW televised shows since.
On March 8, 2007, Knox and Derek Neikirk, the reformed Team Elite, won the DSW Tag Team Championships for the first time, defeating the Major Brothers.
