-- Ken Anderson posted the following message on his twitter, to clear up his TNA contract status. He then deleted the comments. "I guess that those 6 copies of paperwork that my manager, agent, lawyer, and TNA officials toiled over for a month & I signed & overnighted weren't contracts.

On What Influence Him To Be A Wrestler: "I loved the pomp and circumstance. It was like a play between good and bad guys."
On How Life In The Ring Prepared Him To Tackle A Career In Hollywood: "We still gotta take the bumps and bruises,' he says. 'It's show-business boot camp. You learn how to behave in front of a live crowd. In this day and age, it's not how big your biceps are, it's about connecting with fans. It's like being an actor onstage.' "
On His Challenges To Eat Right During Hard Times: "You'd go into convenience stores and buy hard-boiled eggs, bottled water and some apples and that's your healthy dinner. If you're lucky."
On Working Out With Little To No Money: "When I didn't have enough money for gas to drive the 25 minutes to Calgary, I worked out in a barn. Pull-ups on the wooden struts and hay bale curls. Chugging raw eggs and devouring liver for extra protein. You do what you have to do to keep in shape."
