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 he opened up about his time in WWE 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 the Headlocked Panel at C2E2, Kennedy, who is now known as Ken Anderson, talked about his time in WWE. Anderson claimed that WWE pushed him to make his matches look realistic as if he were in an actual fight.

“When I was at WWE, it was always stressed to us like, ‘what would you do in a real fight? This would never happen in a real fight.’ Now you’ve got invisible man matches and stuff like that, they are not going on in WWE, but I love that. I love the fact that people are just able to express themselves and have fun.”


After his WWE departure, Anderson 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.
