TNA Wrestling sources claim the company is definitely interested in Umaga (Eddie Fatu) and Mr. Kennedy (Ken Anderson), both of whom were released from WWE recently.
TNA apparently sees money in a potential Samoa Joe vs. Umaga feud down the road.
The 90-day no compete clauses of both Umaga and Kennedy expire about ten days from each other later this summer, so both could potentially join the company around the same time.
A source close to Mr. Kennedy claims he’s very much looking forward to joining TNA Wrestling, feeling he can be a top star in the company without restraints, such as those he felt he had while in WWE. Kennedy apparently felt he wasn’t seen as a top star in WWE, but will be in TNA – and can be, if given the opportunity.
