Kenny King was figured to be a big part of TNA Wrestling's plans in 2015, but the company's infrastructure prevented his Beat Down Clan group from taking off.
After having to pull Hernandez from their programming after not clearing up his contract status with Lucha Underground, the group had to be removed from TNA programming to avoid a lawsuit. In an interview with Solo Wrestling, Kenny King opened up on the situation, but said there are no hard feelings.
"It was very heart breaking for me because I loved the idea and I thought we were on the way to do our very best work. For the way it happened, over nothing, over poor business... one night we film like six episodes where we were the focal point and then we just disappeared. There was a lot of that that sucked. After it was gone, I just didn't think the direction they had for me and the direction I wanted to go didn't seem to go in the same direction. Credit to John Gaburick and Dixie [Carter], we had a very amicable split. We are still friends. It was just business."
The faction featured an eclectic group of stars -- MVP, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King, Low Ki, Samoa Joe, Homicide and Hernandez -- and only Lashley and Homicide remain with the company.
Later in 2015, King would move to ROH.
