The following is an excerpt from an interview with Bobby Lashley on Busted Open Radio:
"If somebody says that (Kennedy worked too stiff), I think they need to get a reality check, man. We’re wrestlers, we’re not dancers. We’re not children. If someone touches you a little harder in a friggin’ wrestling match and you go crying about it, that’s ridiculous. I’ve been punched in the face, kicked, I’ve been hammered left and right by several different people. I never went crying and said, ‘Oh, he hit me too hard.’ That’s just part of the business of wrestling. It ain’t volleyball. It ain’t tee-ball. They’re grown men, most of which being well conditioned grown men… I had several matches with Kennedy and I never left the match and said, ‘Oh, man, you hit me too hard.’ I liked the way he worked. I didn’t think he was too stiff. I worked a lot of people who are top guys that are a lot stiffer than him. Some of the veterans would even say that they work a little snugger out there. It kind of helps. I don’t mind if someone works stiff with me because it helps me react a little better. It helps me get into the match a little more."
