Wow, I was just going to look for an updated Kennedy moveset. Nice one. Oh, and I'd go with one of the Senton Bombs, as I've read somewhere in spoilers that he used it to finish his return match with S2H. But, we'll see which one looks best.

Yeah, that's what I've been using. I've been alternating between using a hip toss in the running counter, and the actual sidewinder move in a finisher slot (OVW, and SD! match with Rey), and using the Scrapbuster in the running counter to substitute the sidewinder while having Swanton Bomb in a finisher slot. In the previous game, you could get the Sidewalk Slam 2 in a normal grapple slot. Oh well.

I thought the "Gunn Slinger" was in some normal grapple this game too, guess not. Well, I'm sure you'll be updating this from his return match.

The GunnStinger is a normal grapple move.
I'm sure of it, I use it for Helms' GunnStinger backbreaker.

Not clean O_O
Um, Not sure.. Playing DOR2 at the moment.
Perhaps I'm wrong but I could have sworn I added it to Helms last week

ur thinking DOR. The sideslam is placed in the finisher section only now. Also if i remeber, he only did it once to Rey and same goes for that backbreaker. Sum other stuff too, but I dont want to be to critical since I got one coming soon too.

Ahh, playing DOR 2 I see. Always a good decision. Hmm, come to think of it, the Sidewinder is about the only move I can think of that's not in DOR 2. Now that game has a lot of finishers. I don't think there's any indy wrestler you can't make a good moveset for to some degree. Too bad the # of moves is so limited. But all the splashes look better, and the rope topes as well. Gotta love that game.

Shame the CAW mode sucks in it.
I don't play it often, I just like a change from SD every so often + I like the fact that Angle takes down his straps on the GameCube games.
had enough of it now after 3 matches >_<

*switches off*

Anyway, Its finisher only now?
Was I dreaming giving it to Helms?
Wait A minute, that sounds wrong.

As of now, I like the non-connecting Swanton, the "Crane stance" looking gesture for the Senton/Seanton Bomb doesn't suit Ken in my opinion. But I'll be looking for the move tonight on SD!, and I'll make my decision then.

And speaking of Sean O'Haire, I'm diagnosing a case of Sean O'Haire Syndrome for Ken Kennedy's Sidewinder, as Tatanka's now using it as his special (Laikia? Ikea? whatever he calls it, it means Thunder). So, I'm getting rid of the Scrapbuster too.

Edit: BREAKING NEWS! I read somewhere that Ken Kennedy is calling his finisher the JFK (Just Finished by Kennedy), don't know if it's a official, it's kinda awkward, but hey, it's a name.
