A former WWE star would like to make a return at some point.
Ken Anderson, formerly known as Mr. Kennedy, spent four years in WWE from 2005 through 2009. Feuding with the likes of The Undertaker and Batista, Anderson was a rising star who even won the Money In The Bank contract at WrestleMania 23.
Anderson went on to have a memorable run with TNA where he won the TNA Heavyweight Championship on two occasions.
Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, the former Mr. Kennedy was asked whether he was surprised that WWE hasn’t invited him back and whether he would like to make a return. Anderson answered:
“No, I’m not surprised,” Anderson said. “I said some really sh—- 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.’”
Ken Anderson last competed in the National Wrestling Alliance for a brief period in 2019.
