Mr. Anderson Claims He’ll Likely Re-Sign With TNA “Within A Week”
Mr. Anderson, who is currently not under contract to TNA Wrestling, stated in an interview with 4th & Pain (Adam Carriker of the Washington Redskins and former wrestling announcer Chuck Carroll) that he expects to sign a new contract with Impact Wrestling “within a week.”
He said his agent and lawyer are currently working on finishing up a deal with the company and that he enjoyed the way he was being used creatively before his contract expired.
“Currently, my contract with TNA expired as of Friday of last week. We’re just negotiating right now. I’m hoping and assuming that we’re going to come to an agreement relatively soon and I’ll be back on Thursday nights,”
“I have no intentions of not being with TNA,” Anderson said. “I’ve been pretty happy with, creatively, the direction I’ve gone in the last month or so. I’m looking forward to coming back. I’d like to come back and hopefully pick up where I left off (with Bully Ray). It’s the legal stuff and I have my agent and my lawyer dealing with stuff. I’m sitting back here trying to enjoy some time off and not get too stressed out about things.”
According to Anderson, not being affiliated TNA Wrestling hasn’t really crossed his mind. He’s also open to taking independent dates.
“I would be open to taking bookings, but I don’t think it’s going to take that long. I think we’re going to have something wrapped up here within the next week,” Anderson said.
Also in the interview, Carriker cuts a promo in Anderson’s style to pay off a wager from the Washington Redskins Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. It was a little choppy at points, but Anderson says the man with the largest arms on the defensive line has a future in the ring if he wants one.
Anderson, a huge NFL fan, also chatted pigskin with the guys for a while before talking about his impending twins and whether to “smarten them up” about Santa Claus from the get go.
