On his title run with Brian Kendrick in WWE that lasted nearly a year: “We had really good chemistry with MNM, we always had good matches with them. They’d kind of given up with these other projects that they were throwing at us, like the Shane Twins, whoever those guys were, The Gemini. They were throwing all these teams and really hoping that we would erupt into something to become like the new Legion of Doom for them. That was their precedence for tag teams, the Legion of Doom. Every time, they compared to them. What about your TLC phase? You always go back to your LOD days, which was amazing, but they would continually express their disinterest in the tag team division. So needless to say, eventually when they realized that all these horrible projects of theirs were terrible, it was almost like they ran out of options, [and saw] what we could do with MNM. We just had really good chemistry with them.”
On Ted Dibiase Sr: He pretty much lost all of our respect in a matter of seconds. We were sitting in the catering section, everyone had pretty much finished up eating, and we were wrapping up eating as well. Million Dollar Man walks in there, and he pulls us aside, well he pulls them aside really, MNM because I think we were wrestling again the night as a build-up match for the inevitable pay per view championship match. So we were kinda throwing around some ideas for that night, and Teddy walks in there, pulls them aside and says ‘I just want to clarify the decision to [switch] the titles is because Joey has this [injury] issue. It’s not because of these guys; definitely not because of anything that these guys have done.’ He kinda just threw that at us, in our face. It was a really backhanded thing to do. It was just flat out rude. Brian got up, and I think he was about to give The Million Dollar Man Sliced Bread #3, and I had to intercept and walk him outside.”
On WWE: “When you work there, you eat so much crap. It’s like middle school all over again when you work there, on any level that you’re at. I don’t care if you’re the megastar or the opening guy, corporate office guy, whatever. At some point in your tenure there, you’re gonna be treated like garbage, absolute garbage. And like less of a human being, like the stuff you wipe off of your shoe that you stepped in by accident. And you’re gonna be treated like that constantly. It’s a constant mental hazing. It’s disgusting. It’s a horrible, horrible place to work, absolutely awful place to work. So, it’s not good for human beings of any nature. It was just things that would numb you to life working there.”
Kendrick also talked about getting heat for stealing wrestlers spots, his run in WWE and more. You can listen to the interview here.
