Kennedy was asked how he came up with the idea of saying his last name twice:
"The first person who pitched it to me was Dave Lagana who was the head writer of Smackdown when I first started there. I'm glad that he pitched it to me. I always say it’s kind of crazy because I had wrestled for six years prior to making my debut. I've done a lot of independents and stuff and nothing really changed other than the fact that I started saying my last name twice. So you know, it worked out.”
On having Eddie Guerrero’s last match on TV:
"I don't know how to answer that question. Honestly, like, it just sucks that he's gone. 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. I remember after that match that night, we came back and he had some, you know, trying to get me to slow down a little bit. It's just like, 'You gotta listen to the people a little more', and if I watch back, I could see those areas, those parts where I was rushing. But I don't know. It was just a great honor to have wrestled him at all, and unfortunately, it just sucks that it happens to be his last match.”
