The Miami Herald has an interview up with WWE star Mr. Kennedy. Here are some highlights.
On being away from the WWE ring:
“It’s been eight months. I’m pretty much tired sitting at home, missing out on the big event. I was really hoping to be back for it, but let the chips fall where they may.”
On his rehab process that continues after WrestleMania 25:
“Hopefully, he’s (Dr. James Andrews) going to tell me that I can return to action. I’ve got a little issue with my shoulder. I’ve been going to see a physical therapist three times a week. I spend an hour and a half, two hours a visit. She’s beating the ^%#@ out of me. It hurts. She’s always telling me to quit whining like a baby. I’m going to find out from Dr. Andrews if that’s going to be a permanent thing, and I’ll have to deal with it, or if there’s something more that we can do. I’d rather be 100 percent, but you got to do what you got to do in this business because the bottom line is this business is going to keep rolling with or without me.”
On his remaining goals in WWE:
“I’d rather be a part of it and contribute. I think I have a lot to contribute because there are a lot of things that I have yet to accomplish that nobody really has seen out of me. I just want to get back in there and get after it — win some championships, main event at WrestleMania. I say it year after year after year. If it takes me 10 years to do it, I’m going to do it.”
If he might have to look at other options outside the ring:
“I don’t know if I have the talent to be a play-by-play announcer, necessarily. That’s a pretty fast-paced environment, My brain doesn’t work that fast. I would definitely like to continue in the business in some form or another. I see myself more as a teacher, wrestling trainer.”
