— After working through his injury, Ken Kennedy is said to have been hurting so bad that when he couldn’t even put his hand in his pocket to get his wallet at a restaurant because it was hurting so bad. The doctors told him it was a complete tear, compared to Batista’s partial tear, and that he would need surgery. Kennedy had the surgery for the lat tear on December 6, and isn’t expected back at 100% until as late as June.
Vince is said to be a huge fan of Ken Kennedy and actually wanted to put him in a major match at WrestleMania, however it doesn’t look like that will be happening now. Vince told Kennedy to have the surgery, to give him time to come up with a plan of action for his return.
They will likely give him some sort of on-air role during his recovery to keep his character alive, similar to what they did with Edge.
