Mr. Kennedy had a bright future in WWE as many felt he was going to be the next big thing in the company. He had a rocket strapped to his back and was destined for greatness. It seems Bruce Prichard believed he had a lot of potential as well.

Mr. Kennedy had an undefeated streak in 2006 and was later pushed to win the Money in the Bank contract. Unfortunately, a series of injuries and backstage issues ultimately derailed his numerous pushes.

While speaking on his podcast, Bruce Prichard said that he was always a fan of Kennedy’s work and gave props to his in-ring and mic skills. Prichard added that he felt Kennedy might have been allergic to success in WWE.

“I think, at this time (2006), everybody enjoyed working with Kennedy. You know, Ken, a hell of a talent, a hell of a worker, hell of a talker, very good in the ring. I’ve said it before; I think that, you know, Ken, in some ways, was just either allergic to success, just had that mental block when he reached that certain level to go beyond and be the megastar that I truly think he could have been,”

After his WWE departure, Mr. Kenny debuted in TNA/Impact Wrestling where he had a solid run as their World Champion. He feud with the likes of Kurt Angle, Sting and others before being released in 2016. Since then, he has been competing in the indie circuit and is unlikely to return to WWE anytime soon.
