Former ROH TV Champion Kenny King Talks About Almost Going To NXT

Former Ring of Honor World Television Champion, World Tag Team Champion, two time TNA Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion, and a competitor on Season 2 of WWE’s Tough Enough, Kenny King was recently interviewed by Solo Wrestling. During the interview King was asked if he has been in contact with WWE since being on Tough Enough, which you can see his comments below.

After Tough Enough, has anyone from WWE contacted you or have you tried to return to WWE:

“I had a tryout in 2007, but I’ve been under contract for a major wrestling company since 2008. We’ve been in contact. I was talking with the WWE office about going to NXT [in December of 2016]. My whole situation is based around I have joint custody of my daughter. So moving to Florida to NXT was a problem. That’s why I decided to sign with ROH last year.

“WWE is everybody’s goal when they start, but I think the goal of every professional wrestler is to be able to pay your own bills and work as a wrestler no matter what company you work with.”
