I love Kennedy and was hoping he would get the title one day, but even I can't fault the WWE for parting ways with him as he can never stay healthy. and if he was sloppy with Orton (the #1 heel on RAW), then that is strike 2 and 3. Sad to see him go, but completely understand why.

He always reminded me of Mike Sanders.

The WWE could have put a fraction of the push into someone like Stevie Richards and probably would have gotten better results.

This is the closest Vince has been to admitting he was dead wrong about a guy in a long time.

Good riddance... riddance.

I found that gimmick to be really annoying. And I never saw anything special about him. But I say the exact same thing about Ted DiBiase Jr. and everyone who I know that watches the WWE these days keeps telling me that I'm wrong.

I really hope that DiBiase Jr. isn't the next to receive that huge backing because I don't see anything in the guy at all. Other than his name, does he event *have* a gimic? KK was the smart-ass/loud on the mic guy but what doest DiBiase bring to any match or interview or anything? He looks boring, talks boring, acts boring, IS boring. Maybe he's playing coy to learn the ropes and get ungreen but I'd much rather see Morrison or something be the guy for a while.

DiBiase is the blandest bland guy on the roster. I wish he was even bad enough for me to hate him, but I really feel like he's just wasting everyone's time.

Anyone who says Kennedy was overrated on the mic needs to have their head examined.

I've lurked on this board for years as a guest, and seeing that comment was the thing that made me stop, register, and make sure guys who had never seen this clip had a chance to see it.

To be a true superstar, you have to have the whole package.

33% look/style
33% technical skils
33% Mic Skills


2 of any 3 will put you in the top tier.

but being REALLY terrible in any of the categories will cut your time short.


How long as WWE tried to work w/ Jeff Hardy on his mic skills. It is actually physically painful to hear him try to work the mic.


Anyway, Kennedy had potential, kind of like a Cheesehead version of the Rock, but prone to injury and crappy in ring work ruined a great thing that could have been.

You can't compare Kennedy to Jeff Hardy The difference is that whenever Jeff Hardy enters an arena, prime merchandising targets react like he's the second coming of The Beatles.

By now, Kennedy has had so many *SURPRISE* returns that the crowd pretty much greets him with a collective meh. Plus as stated earlier: He's been caught lying, he's ALWAYS injured, and his movie bombed even by WWE Films standards.

I think the final straw was his complete inability to handle his facial hair.

For me it was his Chelsea bouncer zipper vest that did him in, but what do I know?

    He doesn't strike me as a guy who would fit in ROH. All hat and no cattle.
I dunno - there are some great talkers in ROH. I'd kill to see Kennedy and Austin Aries face off in a promo.

He just needs to stay healthy.

Interesting video over at ken-kennedy.com (ken-kennedy.com). So much for the "fired due to injury" theory.
