Of course, Vince was a lot more liberal back then. I have the feeling Kennedy/Anderson was let go as much for his loose cannon mouth as much as for working stiff.
Tarver has been alright on the mic too. I was cringing however watching NXT season 2 when they had the mic challenge - the topics were just awful and some were much harder than others. The fact that WWE promos are heavily scripted anyway, precludes this kind of mic spontenaity pointless anyway.
Really like Arn Anderson's promos a while ago
