Ken Kennedy was supposed to be pushed to the moon in WWE, but that did not happen. He was supposed to become Vince McMahon’s illegitimate son, but he was replaced by Hornswoggle.
He won the Money In The Bank but failed to cash it in. He was then eventually released after hitting Randy Orton with a bad suplex on Kennedy’s first night back after returning from injury.
He spoke to Pancakes and Powerslams recently, and talked about his stint in WWE and why he never came back. Here is what he said:
“I don’t really know. I think part of it had to do with my attitude, probably. I was very – I was like bitter for a couple of years after I left WWE, and said some things I probably shouldn’t have said. In hindsight, I can say if I could point to any one reason, I would point to myself.”
Backstage attitude matters in professional wrestling in the end. It is unlikely he will ever return to the WWE, especially this late into his career.
