Ken Anderson recently gave some comments to the UK’s Sun newspaper. Below are some highlights from the interview as well as a link to the interview itself in case you want to read more. Enjoy!
On Being a Part of TNA Wrestling:
I have been through some bad things in other organisations and thankfully I’m in such a good place now.
On Winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship:
My debut for TNA was at the Genesis PPV, so it’s cool to think exactly a year down the line I won the title on the same show. It was a great feeling to do so and a night where the storytelling we do worked perfectly. There are times when you can feel the crowd with you and you know they are joining in with you as you work. Win, lose or draw that is what I am here to do.
On Being Benched While He Recuperated from His Concussion:
It was Dixie who took me to the side at one of our live shows, I was there and ready to step back into the ring. She said ‘we don’t think you’re ready yet, go sit at home and spend time recuperating, we’ll bring you back when you are fit and well enough.’
Maybe that’s the difference between TNA and the other places, we are not treated like racehorses and used until we are done and then dispatched without any thought for our future. Here in TNA we are not on the road 52 weeks a year or working four or more days a week.
In my case I not only had two months off to get better, but then after we’d finished our TV tapings, we got two full weeks to spend Christmas with my family. That kind of thing doesn’t happen anywhere else, Dixie and the company are very good at looking out for us and make it a great place to work.
We are given the time and space to heal and rest up, you can see that in us all when we return from a layoff.
