WWE: Update on Mr. Kennedy Interview
by Cassidy Haslett on 3 December 2007 12:55 am


Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Mr. Kennedy was interviewed by Mike Mooneyham of The Post and Courier out of South Carolina to promote tomorrow night's Raw in North Charleston. It was a revealing interview as he talked about the bad luck he's endured since joining WWE two years ago, not to mention his past steroid use.

Earlier this year, Kennedy learned that his name turned up on a list of clients of the Orlando-based Signature Pharmacy, an online firm that had been raided by law enforcement agencies in February 2007 for distributing steroids and other prescription drugs to clients who had not been examined by doctors. In the interview, Kennedy explains why he was getting drugs from the busted online firm.

"I had a legitimate medical reason to have it," Kennedy says. "How was I supposed to know my doctor's a quack? I was injured and had a legitimate reason. I tore my lat in 2005. I had surgery, went home and had a staph infection that I almost died from. I lost about 45 pounds in about three days. I had a legitimate medical reason for having it, however my name turned up on that list. Vince and the company's hands were tied. They had to suspend me."

Although, what he's saying doesn't totally add up because Kennedy was getting banned drugs long after he had recovered from the lat (latissimus dorsi muscle) injury that put him out of action from December 2005 to May 2006. According to documents, between October 2006 and February 2007, Kennedy had received shipments of anastrozole (steroids), somatropin (Growth hormone) and testosterone (steroids). All three drugs are banned from the WWE Wellness Policy. Additionally, purchasing drugs over the Internet is prohibited by the policy. So if he had a legitimate medical reason for using steroids like he says, it makes you wonder why he didn't go to a legitimate medical doctor instead of a shady online one that's banned from the Wellness policy.

In the interview, Kennedy notes that he didn't catch a lot of heat from company officials when his name turned up on the Signature Pharmacy list. He says that it was a learning experience for him and that he plans on moving forward. Kennedy says the incident was a learning experience for him. "It's one of those things. But stuff happens in this business. I'm going to learn from my mistakes. I'm not going to make that same mistake again. I'm just going to keep pushing on and moving forward," Kennedy said.

Kennedy also talks about his momentum in WWE being dashed due to untimely injuries.

Additionally, back in August, he did an interview with The Sun out of the UK where he states that he stopped using steroids because of WWE's Wellness Policy. "I don't take steroids, but I have taken steroids in the past. I never took a lot, but when I was working the independent scene I was trying everything I could. I never took massive amounts of steroids and do you know why I stopped taking them? Because of the Wellness Policy. Because I knew that having a job with the WWE was way more important than the 10 pounds of extra muscle that the steroids gave me."
