Kennedy Discusses Steroids & Wellness

The Sun UK has a very interesting and revealing interview with Mr.(Ken) Kennedy from today. In the interview, Mr. Kennedy discusses the whole media attack on WWE and steroids. Kennedy was outraged by what he was seeing on various media shows such as "Nancy Grace". Kennedy said he was begging Stephanie McMahon to let him write something on his website defending the WWE and its policies but Stephanie was telling wrestlers to keep quiet because it was a no wn situation. Finally, Vince gave wrestlers the go ahaed to post their responses and thoughts on blogs/websites. Kennedy received critism from many for his thoughts, but he defended the WWE and its wellness policy and fights back against the media.

Kennedy admits to problems in the wrestling business, himself included in those who used to take steroids. Kennedy says the WWE's wellness policy stopped him from using steroids in 2005.

From Sun UK:

"Ken: Honest to God, Vince said "Be honest. Tell the truth. We don't have anything to hide."

And the thing is, I did take steroids.

I never took a lot of steroids, 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 (WWE's) Wellness Policy.

Because they instituted the Wellness Policy and 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."

Kennedy goes on to discus the list of deceased pro wrestlers that has been circulating, his belief that guys like Cena & Lashley never took steroids, his own plans to headline Wrestlemania, and the Benoit tragedy. A great read for fans to get some very candid and heartfelt comments/observations from the rising superstar, Mr. Kennedy. Read or listen to the full interview here.
