The former Mr. Kennedy says All Elite Wrestling isn’t on his radar at the moment.
Ken Anderson has had a storied career in wrestling as a staple player of the late-2000s and early-2010s. With accolades including a WWE Money in the Bank victory at Wrestlemania 23, a WWE United States Championship, and a run with the TNA Wrestling World Heavyweight Championship, Ken Anderson has had the pleasure of being inside the squared circle with multiple Hall of Famers throughout his illustrious career.
When asked in a new interview with Sportskeeda if a return to the ring is on the table with the new emergence of AEW, Anderson admitted that he is currently not of the mindset that furthering his career in wrestling is what he needs to do.
"Yeah, maybe (laughs). You know, right now, my head's not really there. I am enjoying what I'm doing right now—learning a new trade. I'd like to start my own, you know, contracting business at some point. So, I'm kind of learning the ropes there.” Anderson revealed. “But, it definitely could be fun at some point. I also don't know what their schedule is right now. I haven't really looked into it, but you know, I don't think I can do a WWE full schedule. I want to be around for my kids. I want to see them as much as possible."
AEW has picked multiple former WWE names from Ken’s time with the company including Matt Hardy, Vickie Guerrero, and, of course, Chris Jericho.
Ken Anderson was briefly apart of NWA Powerrr and was also supposed to return to IMPACT Wrestling earlier this year for their TNA Wrestling reunion show at WrestleCon during WrestleMania weekend in Tampa, Florida this year. However, Anderson was unable to reform Aces & Eights alongside D’Lo Brown for one night because of the global coronavirus outbreak canceling all WrestleMania weekend shows.
