Former WWE wrestler Mr. Kennedy (aka Mr. Anderson in TNA) was set to get a big push in the company before his release in 2009.
At one point, he was scheduled to win the World Heavyweight Championship after cashing-in his Money In The Bank contract, but he got injured. Later, he ended up getting reeleased.
After his release, he claimed that his WWE run ended because John Cena and Randy Orton complained about him to management.
Speaking on the A2theK Wrestling Show, Kennedy said that he can’t blame anyone for what happened, and him being fired was his own mistake.
Kennedy said he met Randy Orton backstage at RAW a few years ago and buried the hatchet:
“I did talk to him, but let me say this. Nobody got me fired. I got me fired. Because I was very bitter and very upset for a few years and that resentment was directed at the wrong place and it should have been directed back at me because had I been doing all the right things, I would have never been in a position where one person’s word could have any effect on my career.
I was in a position at that time where I had done enough things, and Vince had heard my name in a negative light enough that he just finally said, like, ‘I’m tired of hearing about it. We’re just gonna cut our losses.’ I would’ve fired me.
We have talked and I think both of us are in very different places in our lives right now. I don’t call him but I did run into him when I went backstage at a Monday Night RAW like 2 years ago, 3 years ago now, in Minneapolis. [We] had like a very long, pretty cool discussion with him.”
