Brian Kendrick Reflects On Comments That Got Him Cut From AEW
Earlier this year, former WWE veteran Brian Kendrick was about to make his AEW debut. Until past comments on social media of Kendrick’s came back to haunt him. He was voicing antisemitic conspiracy theories.
Tony Khan then slammed the breaks on his debut announcing that Kendrick would no longer appear for the promotion.
Kendrick did apologize for the comments After the fact. He recently went to the entertainment news outlet TMZ to again talk about his mistakes. According to Kendrick, he was just trying to “create a buzz” and become the most hated heel possible.
“When it gets thrown back in your face, one, it’s embarrassing, but two, you start to reflect, you’re forced to reflect on it,” Kendrick said. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being so cold-hearted and trying to profit off of tragedy, I suppose it’s what it was. I was trying to gain off of others’ tragedies by making conspiracy to create a buzz for myself, to gain some sort of bookings.
“It was a terrible idea and even if it hadn’t affected anybody, it’s still just horribly embarrassing. I am sorry for anybody — to people I hurt, for making light of stuff that happened to them or their family. I hope you accept that”
Kendrick has been working with The Survivor Mitzvah Project, a charity that supports elderly Holocaust survivors. He hopes that he can be forgiven and return to the ring one day.
