The annual Tribute to the Troops trip is being held this week. As a matter of fact, the WWE crew already took off from the Charleston Air Force Base for the annual trip. That was one of the reasons JBL was at RAW. Michael Cole has posted an audio report on WWE.com regarding this. Another person going on the trip is Mickie James. James has volunteered to chronicle her entire Tribute to the Troops experience in a blog on WWE.com.
Ken Kennedy recently spoke out in an interview with Mike Mooneyham over his streak of bad luck that has held him back from a tremendous push in WWE. Kennedy told Mooneyham that JBL once told him that he had his bad luck. Kennedy commented, “I was building up some steam and momentum (in late 2005), and then I tore my lat (latissimus dorsi muscle) and was out for six months,” says Kennedy, “Then I came back and built up all sorts of steam and momentum, won the Money in the Bank at this year’s Wrestlemania and tore my triceps. They told me I was going to be out for seven months, but it turned out to be only a slight tear, and I was only out for a few months. But they took the Money in the Bank off me and put the title on Edge.”
