Former WWE and Impact Wrestling star Ken Anderson now runs a wrestling school alongside Daivari. Through Anderson and Daivari, many students have trained to become wrestlers in a rapidly-growing industry.
A plethora of Superstars Anderson has trained have now made their RAW debuts. The majority of performers worked as extras for No Way Jose, while another stood as a plant in the crowd to ask questions to Bayley and Sasha Banks.
Anderson revealed this late last night on Instagram, posting the following:

Anderson’s students appearing on RAW is interesting, as it brings in the question of a relationship between WWE and Anderson, who worked for WWE as Mr. Kennedy. Kennedy, as fans may recall, was one of the first winners of the Money in the Bank- but ultimately lost the briefcase to Edge, who would later go on to cash it in and become Champion.
While not directly opening the doors for a return, it is powerful to know Anderson, to some degree, is still in contact with WWE. The same would apply to Daivari- though he did recently appear at the Greatest Royal Rumble event alongside his brother and 205 Live Superstar Ariya Daivari- so this relationship was already known to the audience.
