WWE Superstar "Mr. Kennedy," Ken Anderson, who received enormous backlash after an interview was posted overseas regarding whether he had ever taken steroids in the past, posted his most controversial video to date, accompanied by an apologetic blog.
While Anderson's blog falls short of actually apologizing, he offers an explanation as to what led to the scandal that occurred after his comments were posted online.
When "Mr. Kennedy" exploded on the scene in WWE, I was given the opportunity to do media interviews all over the world which can be extremely intoxicating. You're living out your dream, making serious money, finally achieving all your goals, and you're getting the chance to build on the already-intense fame by talking to the media.
"No comment" or "I do not recall" should have been in my vocabulary (Hey, it worked for Ollie North, right?) I admit that I just wasn't media savvy enough at the time to deal with all that comes with the responsibility of talking to the press. I said some very sophomoric things and that mistake was mine and mine alone, and I have learned from it.
That mistake set in motion a chain of events that allowed my detractors, both inside the company and outside, to jump all over me. I left myself open.
Vince McMahon didn't screw "Mr. Kennedy." WWE didn't screw "Mr. Kennedy." Ken Anderson screwed "Mr. Kennedy."
