Who Was Ken Kennedy’s Biggest Supporter in WWE?

Nick Paglino

Ken "Kennedy" Anderson has posted yet another blog over at CraveOnline.com. This time he speaks on who his key supporters were in WWE when he began his career. Kennedy wrote, "When I arrived at OVW, I was practically penniless, but rich in passion and a desire to succeed. I almost failed. Jim Cornette didn’t see much in me at first. I wasn’t featured on OVW programming and I basically filled random spots on the card until a week or two before Jim was headed for ‘Greener pastures.’ Then Paul E. came in, and pulled me into a room. He said: ‘I see the same qualities in you as in Dwayne Johnson and Steve Austin. You’re the next guy out of here. We’re gonna do so much stuff with you on TV over the next few weeks that WWE is going to be salivating to get their hands on you, they’ll HAVE to pull you up!’ They say in the wrestling business: ‘believe half of what you see and none of what you hear,’ and I really didn’t know Paul too well at the time so I wasn’t sure if he was serious or just blowing smoke up my ass. Well it turns out that he was serious as a heart attack and five weeks after that little discussion I was debuting on Velocity against Funaki."
