After successful defenses against Absolute Answer (Caden Ames and Chris Able) and American History Next (Hardcore Craig and Steve Stone), they dropped the championship to The Motor City Machineguns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) on September 8. Kennedy and Davis kept competing in the AAW tag team division, and on October 20, were unsuccessful in regaining the Tag Team Championship in a two ou of three falls match. DP Associates were supposed to face The Michigan Invasion (Truth Martini and N8 Mattson) on December 18, but Kennedy was unable to make the show after he flight was cancelled, so Davis wrestled on his own in a handicap match, but lost. Kennedy made his final AAW appearance at My Bloody Valentine '08 on February 9, 2008, when he and Davis lost to Zach Gowen and Krotch.

World Wrestling Entertainment (2007, 2008)

In 2007, Kennedy would make three appearances in World Wrestling Entertainment, using the name Conrad Carr on an episode of Heat in a losing effort to Carlito. Kennedy, under the name Conrad Bourne, would make his second appearance four days later, tagging with Jake Adams in another losing effort against Jesse and Festus on SmackDown!. On May 12, 2008, Kennedy appeared on Heat using his "CK3" nickname in another losing effort, this time to "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan.

Juggalo Championship Wrestling (2008-2009)

Kennedy debuted in Juggalo Championship Wrestling during season 2 of its internet wrestling show SlamTV!. Along with his partner Zach Gowen, Kennedy participated in the "SlamTV! Tag Team Title Tournament" for the vacant JCW Tag Team Championship. In the second episode, Human Tornado, former partner of Gowen in The Pimp and Gimp Connection, saw heel manager Scott D'Amore leaving Kennedy's dressing room and grew suspicious. Later that night, Kennedy and Gowen defeated The Thomaselli Brothers to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Following a loss in their next match against The Bloody Brothers, Kennedy turned on Gowen. Human Tornado ran into the ring, forcing Kennedy to retreat to the stage, where Scott D'Amore met with him. Later, D'Amore proclaimed that he was going to create a stable, starting with the members Kennedy and Kowabata, which was going to reform JCW. The team defeated The Ring Rydas on the following episode. A match was then set for Bloodymania II where The Pimp and Gimp Connection would face Kennedy and a mystery partner. The match, however, never occurred because Gowen legitimately no-showed the event. Kennedy competed the rest of his tenure as a singles competitor.
