Former WWE Superstar Mr Kennedy has recently been reflecting on the time he got to share the ring with Eddie Guerrero.
Kennedy and Guerrero went one-on-one on the November 11, 2005, episode of Smackdown, where Kennedy ended up losing the match via disqualification. The match was Eddie Guerrero’s last ever match, with the star passing away two days after it took place.
Speaking with Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston’s “Ten Count”, Mr Kennedy discussed how difficult it was for him to express his feelings about knowing he shared Eddie Guerrero’s last ever wrestling match with him:
“I don’t know how to answer that question, honestly, I’m happy that I was able to be a part of his history at all. Just the fact that I was able to get in the ring with him a few times and learn from him.”
Kennedy went on to recall a vital piece of advice that Eddie Guerrero gave him after the match:
“I remember after that match that night, we came back and he was trying to get me to slow down a little bit. He’s just like, ‘You gotta listen to the people a little more,’ and if I watch back I could see those areas and those parts where I was rushing. It was just a great honor to have wrestled him at all, and unfortunately it just sucks that happens to be his last match.”
While talking with Steve Fall, Kennedy also discussed how an injury misdiagnosis cost him Money In The Bank. Kennedy dropped the briefcase to Edge in a match on RAW, returning to the company only a few months later.
