-- "Mr. Kennedy is scheduled for shoulder surgery this Friday, reports PWInsider.com. He is expected to miss four to six months after the procedure, which will be performed by Dr. Andrews. Kennedy injured his shoulder during a house show match with Shelton Benjamin earlier this month, and has been working lightly ever since. Kennedy was diagnosed with a torn labrum and damage to his rotator cuff. After two weeks of rehab and no progress, it was determined he would require surgery."
Here's hoping the former ACW and NWA Midwest heavyweight champ makes it back in four. Get well soon, Ken.
Too bad, but man is Kennedy brittle. Everytime when it looks like he's going to get a big M.E.-type push, he gets injured. I have the feeling that this could do it as far as him being a major player in the WWE.
I remember Cena was injured last year during his match against Kennedy. And Kennedy was the last guy Lashley wrestled before his departure. The RAW storyline claimed he was said to be hurt in that match. Did the injury occur before the match?

And Eddie DIED two days after the "Smackdown" aired which had him wrestling Kennedy!!!!!!!
Originally posted by Matt TrackerI know. I'm skirting the line here, but I have a sincere question: Is Kennedy is a sloppy wrestler, one that brings on injury either to himself or others?
I think you might be reading too much into it. Cena injured himself by hyper-extending his shoulder as he hiptossed Kennedy. I believe Lashley was injured being run into the ring steps, which is just as much his fault as it is Kennedy's.
You don't have to be a sloppy wrestler to be injury prone. I wouldn't call Rey sloppy, but he's had just as many injuries as Kennedy at this point.
If memory serves me correctly, Lashley was already hurt going into the match, which was why Kennedy got the clean win.
Kennedy does have a bit of a reputation for being sloppy, though. For example, he wiggles around during power moves (making it look real, but making it hard for the person performing the move to complete it safely).
It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.
You're right, the only reason for the title switch is to set up the "champ v champ" match. The idea is that if Rey & Batista win, that frees up Big Show for his feud with Hunter at NYR. Pretty cheap booking if ya ask me.
