Here are some highlights

On losing the money in the bank case

''They can never take that moment [winning the briefcase at WrestleMania 23] away from me,'' Mr. Kennedy said. ``Things happened the way they did, and I ended up losing the briefcase because of an injury.''

''I tend not to dwell on the past and instead look forward,'' Mr. Kennedy said. ``I learn from my mistakes. Obviously, that wasn't really a mistake; it was something I had no control of, and I would like to get the opportunity to redeem myself.

''It's been eight months,'' said Mr. Kennedy, 33, a former U.S. champ. ``I'm pretty much tired sitting at home, missing out on the big event. I was really hoping to be back for it, but let the chips fall where they may.''

''Hopefully, he's going to tell me that I can return to action,'' Mr. Kennedy said. ``I've got a little issue with my shoulder. I've been going to see a physical therapist three times a week. I spend an hour and a half, two hours a visit.”
