Ex-WWE Star “Not Surprised” They Haven’t Been Asked Back

WWE WrestleMania 24 Money In The Bank

Mr. Kennedy looked destined for big things in WWE during the mid-2000s but despite initial success, his career in the company petered out before his departure.

Kennedy went on an undefeated run in his early WWE career and would capture the US Championship and the Money In The Bank briefcase during his time in the promotion. Kennedy became the first Money In The Bank winner to lose his briefcase to another star – in this case, Edge – after he suffered a seemingly serious injury. The injury, however, turned out to be less serious than first thought and Kennedy returned to action within a few weeks.

Mr. Kennedy left WWE in May 2009 and since then he has been known as Ken Anderson, most notably in TNA where he captured the TNA World Championship on two occasions.

Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Ken Anderson was asked if he was surprised that he hadn’t been asked to return to WWE at any point but the former US Champion thinks he may have burned his bridges:

“No, I’m not surprised. I said some really sh*tty things on the way out the door, and I completely get it. I would like to eventually be able to go back there and finish it out, but I completely understand if that doesn’t happen. I did it to myself.

“I was asked a few years ago, it wasn’t official, but I was asked but Daivari, ‘Hey, your name came up for Royal Rumble. Would you be interested?’ I wasn’t. I was completely out of shape, and I turned it down. But it wasn’t an official ask anyway. I just said, ‘No, I’m not interested.’”
