PWInsider.com is reporting that Ken Kennedy really wasn’t a liked man by many within WWE. Some people within the company feel that he was a kiss-ass to upper management, didn’t like comments he made in interviews, and truly did feel he was a sloppy worker. Usually when a wrestler hits someone too hard in the ring, the other wrestler stiffs them back, and they call it even. However sources claim Mr. Kennedy would complain when wrestlers stiffed him back after he did it first, and he had a reputation for being a bit of a whiner.
Management feels that they tried to count on Mr. Kennedy and push him, but before they knew it he got hurt each time. WWE management isn’t stressing over the possibility of him becoming a big star in TNA, and feels that if they do sign him then he’s their problem.
Apparently it wasn’t only Randy Orton burying him that lead to Vince letting him go. Vince also asked several respected wrestlers for advice on what to do with Kennedy, and none of them had anything good to say about him.
Some sources flat out say that if it wasn’t for the Behind Enemy Lines movie he did, he would have been gone already because he had worn out his welcome.
