Brian Fritz of AOL Fanhouse and Between the Ropes radio is featuring an interview with TNA star Mr. Anderson (former WWE star Mr. Kennedy) where he talks about his final match with WWE and what he feels led to his release.
“He (Orton) told me to give him a belly-to-back suplex and I did and I thought everything was fine. I got to the back and he was holding his neck, saying that I dropped him on his head. He went to the back and lectured me about how I need to be safe and all this other stuff. He got three huge bags of ice ? one on his neck, one on his left shoulder, one on his right shoulder. He got them all saran wrapped up, put his shirt back on and we walked to the locker room and he chewed me out the whole way there ? calmly and quietly ? but he told me that you need to be careful, blah blah blah.
I felt bad about it because I didn’t know. I hadn’t seen the tape so I thought I really dropped him on his head. Then I went home and saw the tape and saw that he landed flat. If you slow the video tape down, his neck never comes into contact with the mat. So, I’ll let you…you watch the tape and you let me know what you think. He landed flat as flat can be and then he went and complained to Vince (McMahon) and then (John) Cena went and complained to Vince and said that they didn’t want to work with me anymore because I was dangerous and that is what ended up being the final straw.
I wouldn’t say that’s what got me fired because there were so many other things before that. It was like they were looking for a reason to get rid of me.”
