Kenneth Anderson (born March 6, 1976) is an American professional wrestler. He is known for his tenure in WWE from 2005 to 2009 under the ring name Mr. Kennedy,[11] and his tenure in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as Mr. Anderson from 2010 to 2016. He is currently signed to Top Rank Boxing as their announcer.

Before signing a development deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and being assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling, WWE's farm area, Anderson began his career on the independent circuit. He was promoted to the main roster in 2005. One year after his debut, he won the WWE United States Championship, which he held for 42 days. At WrestleMania 23, he won the 2007 Money in the Bank briefcase with a title shot for the promotion's world title. However, he dropped the briefcase to Edge after being misdiagnosed with an injury. Kennedy would remain with the promotion until 2009.

In 2010, Anderson signed with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA, now Impact Wrestling), where he competed under the ring names Mr. Anderson and Ken Anderson. In 2011, he would win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship twice during a feud with the villainous group Immortal. After losing the title, he would remain with the promotion as a mid-card wrestler, joining the villainous faction Aces & Eights at one point, until he departed TNA in 2016. In 2019, Anderson came back to pro wrestling programming when he worked for National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).

In 2016, Anderson opened a wrestling school called The Academy in Minneapolis, Minnesota, along with Shawn Daivari, Molly Holly, Ariya Daivari, and Arik Cannon. He has also worked occasionally as an actor and starred as Master Chief Petty Officer Carter Holt in the WWE Studios production Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia in 2009.[12]

Early life

Kenneth Anderson was born on March 6, 1976, in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.[10][13] Anderson graduated from Washington High School in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. During his time there, he excelled at swimming and track and field.[13] He also announced school basketball games and did a radio assignment in his Mass Media class.[14] When doing this, a friend suggested to Anderson to repeat the surnames to make it funnier.[14] That element was eventually used again in his wrestling character when encouraged by Paul Heyman.[1][14][15] Before beginning his wrestling career, Anderson worked as a security officer at Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant and a personal trainer.[1][13] He also served in the United States Army.[4][16] His father died on April 13, 2006, from cancer.[17]

Professional wrestling career

Early career (1999–2005)

Anderson, under the ring name "Two Rivers Jack," made his debut on September 11, 1999, at a North American Wrestling Federation event in Whitewater, Wisconsin, losing to Golga.[18] He wrestled just twenty-one matches before appearing for the World Wrestling Federation on Jakked in 2001, where he lost to Essa Rios.[19] He occasionally worked as enhancement talent for WWF when shows ran in Wisconsin.[20] Anderson also made an appearance on NWA: Total Nonstop Action's secondary television program, Xplosion.[21] The owner of the promotion, Jeff Jarrett, approached him for a contract but communications broke down.[9]

World Wrestling Entertainment (2005–2009)

Ohio Valley Wrestling (2005)

Upon signing with WWE in February 2005, Anderson was sent to the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) developmental territory, where he would remain for six months. When he arrived, Jim Cornette was in charge of the organization and, according to Anderson, did not see potential in his abilities and declined to feature him as more than an occasional bit-player on OVW's programming.[22] When Cornette departed, his replacement, Paul Heyman, showed immediate interest in Anderson, comparing his qualities to The Rock and Steve Austin.[22] Five weeks later, Anderson was called up to WWE's main roster to work on Velocity. He credits Heyman with helping him develop the character with which he would achieve success.[22] Before his first SmackDown! match, he showed himself to be a cocky and arrogant wrestler by taking a microphone and performing his own ring announcement.[1][23] He referred to himself as "Mr. Anderson" for this match.[2] A few weeks later, to avoid comparisons with the more famous Anderson family (as well as former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson), he changed his name "Ken Kennedy," to "Mr. Kennedy."[9] The change was initially suggested by Heyman and was chosen because it is the middle name of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.[15]

Undefeated streak (2005–2006)

Kennedy, as a heel, defeated Funaki in his SmackDown! debut on August 25.[24] Kennedy also created an ongoing mini-feud with SmackDown! ring announcer Tony Chimel based on Kennedy believing that Chimel's announcing was not done well enough or with sufficient respect, and therefore performing his own introductions or forcing Chimel to introduce him again. Kennedy's self-ring introductions before the match became one of his trademarks.[1] While working on both Velocity and SmackDown!, he was also still working in OVW. Kennedy made his pay-per-view debut at No Mercy, defeating Hardcore Holly and injuring Holly's ribs during the match.[25]

On the November 11 episode of SmackDown!, Kennedy faced Eddie Guerrero to compete for a spot on SmackDown!'s Survivor Series team. He lost the match when Guerrero tossed him a steel chair and played possum, a move which Guerrero had made famous. The referee turned around and saw Guerrero on the ground with Kennedy holding the chair, and consequently disqualified Kennedy, awarding the place on Team SmackDown! to Guerrero. This was Kennedy's first loss. In retaliation, Kennedy struck Guerrero over the head with the chair after the match.[26] This was Guerrero's final televised match,[27] as he died two days later. In interviews about the incident, Kennedy has stated that he considers this an "unfortunate honor".[15]

In December, Kennedy participated in WWE's overseas tour. On the second day in Italy, Kennedy suffered a legitimate latissimus dorsi tear.[27] Kennedy was sidelined for nearly six months while he rehabilitated the injury.[28] He continued to make appearances on SmackDown! and Velocity throughout January and February and even made an appearance on the January 11, 2006, episode of WWE Byte This! with Todd Grisham to maintain visibility.[29]

At the OVW tapings on May 17, Kennedy returned to in-ring action, facing OVW Heavyweight Champion CM Punk in a title match that Kennedy lost.[30] Kennedy made his return to SmackDown! on the June 9 episode with a victory over Scotty 2 Hotty after using the "Kenton Bomb."[31] On the July 14 episode of SmackDown!, Matt Hardy used a roll-up to defeat Kennedy, ending Kennedy's streak of never being defeated by pin or submission.[32] On the July 21 episode of SmackDown!, Batista put out an open challenge to find an opponent for The Great American Bash, as his original opponent, Mark Henry, had been injured.[33] Kennedy accepted the challenge and won the match by disqualification, however, he suffered an injury during the match after being thrown headfirst into the steel steps, resulting in an exposed cranium laceration which required twenty stitches to close.[34] Kennedy helped Vince and Shane McMahon in their feud with D-Generation X (DX), appearing at both SummerSlam and the August 28 episode of Raw to attack them.[35][36]

United States Champion and Mr. Money in the Bank (2006–2007)

On the September 1 episode of SmackDown!, Kennedy defeated Finlay and Bobby Lashley in a triple threat match to win the WWE United States Championship, his first and only championship reign in WWE.[37] On the September 8 episode of SmackDown!, Kennedy announced that he wanted to move over to the Raw brand, as SmackDown! did not interest him anymore since he had already defeated every top performer on the roster. This led to SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long making a match between Kennedy and The Undertaker, who Kennedy had never faced, to be held at No Mercy. Kennedy won the match by disqualification after The Undertaker hit him with the United States Championship belt.[38] On the October 13 episode of SmackDown!, Kennedy, now with a win over The Undertaker, again stated his desire to move to Raw. However, Long again put him against an opponent who he had never faced—this time Chris Benoit—with the United States Championship on the line. Long said that if Kennedy were to defeat Benoit, he would be given his release and be allowed to go to Raw. Ultimately, Kennedy lost the match and the United States Championship to Benoit after submitting to the "Crippler Crossface" following a distraction by The Undertaker.[39]

In November, Kennedy joined forces with Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) in matches against The Brothers of Destruction (The Undertaker and Kane). On the November 3 episode of SmackDown!, Kennedy and MVP lost to the Brothers of Destruction three times. After first getting counted out, Theodore Long restarted the match with no countouts. When Kennedy disqualified his team by performing a low blow, Long restarted the match again with no countouts and no disqualifications.[40] Kennedy and MVP continued to feud with the two, with MVP feuding with Kane while Kennedy challenged The Undertaker to a match at Survivor Series, which was later announced as a First Blood match. Kennedy defeated The Undertaker at Survivor Series after MVP turned on Kennedy and aimed for his head with a steel chair, but missed and hit The Undertaker instead, leaving The Undertaker bleeding. After the match, The Undertaker attacked Kennedy, forcing him to bleed.[41] At Armageddon, Kennedy and The Undertaker met in a final match; they were scheduled in a Last Ride match. In the match, The Undertaker defeated Kennedy.[42]

After a brief hiatus, Kennedy returned to SmackDown! on January 5, 2007, and defeated Chris Benoit in a "Beat the Clock" match, with the overall prize being a shot at Batista's World Heavyweight Championship at the Royal Rumble.[43] After he prevented The Undertaker from beating his time, Kennedy's time of 5:07 ended up being the fastest.[44] At the Royal Rumble, he lost to Batista, as well as a subsequent rematch on the February 9 episode of SmackDown!.[45][46] From there, Kennedy began a short feud with ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley, leading to a match at No Way Out for the ECW World Championship, which Kennedy won by disqualification after Lashley hit him with a chair.[47] Kennedy challenged Lashley unsuccessfully for the ECW World Championship on the February 20 episode of ECW and the March 2 episode of SmackDown! as well.[48][49]

Kennedy earned a spot in the 2007 Money in the Bank ladder match by defeating Sabu in an Extreme Rules match on the February 27 episode of ECW.[50] At WrestleMania 23, Kennedy won the Money in the Bank ladder match, giving him the right to challenge any world champion in WWE at any date up until WrestleMania XXIV.[14][27] Kennedy announced on the April 30 episode of Raw that he would be cashing in his Money in the Bank championship opportunity in eleven months at WrestleMania XXIV.[51] On the May 7 episode of Raw, Kennedy, however, lost his Money in the Bank briefcase to Edge,[27] after being struck with a monitor before the match began.[52] Kennedy had sustained an injury prior to his match with Edge, and it was thought that his right triceps muscle tore off the bone and he would be out for a minimum of five to seven months, leading to the decision to transfer the briefcase in lieu of the original plan of having him cash it in against the World Heavyweight Champion, The Undertaker, following a cage match, as he needed time away for bicep surgery.[53][27] The injury, however, was not as serious as initially thought, as the triceps tendon did not tear off the bone but was, in fact, a massive hematoma,[27][54][55] which would keep him out for only five to seven weeks.

On the June 11 episode of Raw, Kennedy was drafted to the Raw brand as part of the WWE Draft.[56] On the August 20 episode of Raw, Carlito hosted the interview segment Carlito's Cabana. During the segment, Carlito challenged his guest, Umaga for his Intercontinental Championship at SummerSlam, and Kennedy also demanded a shot at the title.[57] Raw General Manager William Regal, scheduled a match between Kennedy and Carlito, in which the winner would receive an opportunity to face off against Umaga at SummerSlam.[57] After the match ended in a draw, Regal booked a triple threat match at SummerSlam between the three men for the Intercontinental Championship; at SummerSlam, Umaga retained the title.[58] On the September 10 episode of Raw, Mr. McMahon revealed that Kennedy had, in storyline, been suspended for "impersonating a McMahon." This angle was written because Kennedy being named one of the eleven wrestlers implicated in a steroid scandal and therefore suspended for thirty days in accordance with WWE's Wellness Policy.[59]

Final feuds (2007–2009)

After his suspension, Kennedy returned to television on the October 1 episode of Raw, facing John Cena in the main event and losing.[60] At No Mercy, Kennedy took part in a six-man tag team match alongside World Tag Team Champions Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch, defeating Paul London, Brian Kendrick and Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy.[61] For several weeks, Kennedy began a feud with Hardy, which consisted of the two facing off in a singles match and numerous tag team matches, most of which Hardy won.[62][63] At Cyber Sunday, Kennedy and Hardy were two of the eligible wrestlers that could earn a WWE Championship match that evening, pending a fan votes. Neither man won the opportunity, as Shawn Michaels won the vote and earned a shot at the title. Kennedy defeated Hardy at Cyber Sunday.[64]

Kennedy next entered a feud with Michaels on the night after Survivor Series. Kennedy claimed that it was time for Michaels to move on and let the younger wrestlers achieve success.[65] At Armageddon, Michaels defeated Kennedy by executing "Sweet Chin Music."[66] On the December 31 episode of Raw, Kennedy pinned Michaels in a rematch by executing his new finishing move, the "Mic Check."[67] In subsequent rematches, the two traded wins over each other.[67][68]

After several months of minor feuds and short storylines, Kennedy was not seen for weeks after WrestleMania XXIV because he was filming Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia.[59][69] Kennedy returned to Raw on April 28, 2008, confronting and brawling with Raw General Manager and newly crowned King of the Ring William Regal, turning face in the process.[59][70] On the May 19 episode of Raw, Kennedy defeated Regal in a "Loser Gets Fired match", thereby opening up the General Manager spot on the Raw brand.[59][71]

During the WWE Draft on June 23 on Raw, Kennedy was drafted back to the SmackDown brand.[72] On August 4, he dislocated his shoulder in a match against Shelton Benjamin at a house show, keeping him off television for three months.[73] Kennedy made his return to WWE television, in a non-wrestling capacity, on the November 24 episode of Raw, promoting Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia.[74]

On April 15, 2009, Mr. Kennedy was drafted back to Raw as the brand's first pick of the 2009 Supplemental Draft.[75] On the May 11 episode of Raw, WWE aired a video package to promote Kennedy's return. He made his official Raw return two weeks later, competing in a 10-man tag team match, which his team won.[76]

Kennedy was released from his WWE contract on May 29, just four days after his return.[11] In a March 2010 interview with WrestleZone, Anderson explained that his release was due to fellow wrestler Randy Orton complaining to WWE management that Kennedy was reckless in the ring, citing a botched backdrop that caused Orton to land on his head and neck instead of on his back. Orton argued that this could have potentially ended his career. According to Kennedy, Orton also persuaded John Cena to complain to Vince McMahon about Kennedy's in-ring performance, which prompted McMahon to release Kennedy from his contract.[77]

Independent circuit (2009–2010)

In his first interview since his release, Kennedy expressed to 540 ESPN Radio in Milwaukee his interest in joining Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.[78] Kennedy appeared at World Wrestling Council's 2009 Anniversary show, where he lost to Eddie Fatu.[79] After a number of matches in independent promotions, he competed on the Hulkamania: Let The Battle Begin tour in Australia. Under the ring name Mr. Anderson, he again worked matches with Fatu, the latter's final matches before his unexpected death on December 4.[80]

Anderson was blindsided by Hardy after the match, which consequently earned Anderson a title shot.[98] During the attack, Anderson suffered a legitimate concussion, which kept him from taking part in the title match.[99][100]


Anderson returned on December 2, chasing Hardy and Fortune out of the ring, before being announced as the special guest referee for the title match between Hardy and Matt Morgan at Final Resolution.[101] Anderson was bloodied and taken out of that match by Eric Bischoff, who helped Hardy retain the title after another referee replaced Anderson.[102] On January 9, 2011, at Genesis, Anderson defeated Morgan in a number one contender's match. Immediately afterwards, Bischoff announced that Anderson would get his title match against Jeff Hardy immediately.

Final feuds (2014–2016)

On February 20, 2014, Anderson started a feud with Samuel Shaw when he attacked him and Christy Hemme during an interview.[150] At that time, Shaw played a character of a man with an obsession with Hemme.[151] At Lockdown, Shaw defeated Anderson in a steel cage match by escaping the cage by using Hemme as a distraction by pulling her through the camera cut-out of the steel cage. Anderson rescued Hemme but was caught in Shaw's kata gatame submission hold. The referee, who had been knocked out earlier in the match, only saw Shaw escape the cage and declared him the winner.[152] They faced each other two more times at Impact Wrestling,[153][154] but their final match happened at Sacrifice, where Anderson defeated Shaw in a "Committed match", a match where you have to put the rival into a van, in order to win.

Anderson, along with Mickie James and Josh Mathews, represented WWE at the 2008 Republican National Convention in an effort to persuade fans to register to vote in the 2008 US presidential election.[178] During the Pittsburgh Penguins' 2009 Stanley Cup championship run, when National Hockey League winger Tyler Kennedy scored a goal, the Mellon Arena public address announcer would announce his family name twice, and the local crowd would chant it similar to Mr. Kennedy.[179] Anderson twice appeared on Family Feud: once in 2007 on a WWE-themed episode and again in 2010 on a TNA-themed episode.[180][181] In June 2014, Anderson and comedian David Vox Mullen started the Push The Button podcast to cover topics such as religion, sex, and politics.[182]

Filmography

Personal life

Anderson married girlfriend Shawn Trebnick on January 9, 2008.[183][184][185] Anderson has a red and black tattoo on his upper back,[186] which took nearly eight hours to complete.[187] In 2016, Anderson and fellow WWE alum Shawn Daivari founded The Academy professional wrestling school.[188]

In an interview on August 18, 2007, Anderson admitted to using steroids when he was performing on the independent wrestling scene, stating that he had quit using them in November 2005 to comply with WWE's Talent Wellness Program, implying that his job in the promotion was worth more than extra muscle mass. However, 12 days later on August 30, Anderson and nine other WWE wrestlers were named in a Sports Illustrated article as having received performance-enhancing drugs, in violation of the WWE Talent Wellness Program. Anderson received anastrozole, somatropin, and testosterone between October 2006 and February 2007.[27] He later claimed that the steroids were for his latissimus dorsi muscle, which was injured in 2005.[27][189]
