Ken Anderson: TNA Debut Update, Bischoff/Hogan, Big TNA Changes, More
By Ryan Clark | January 27, 2010
On Going To TNA: "It was something that I wanted to do I wanted to sign with TNA right after my WWE career ended, but I wanted to make sure that I wasn't stepping into the wrong situation. I kind of just got out of a relationship that wasn't good for both parties and I wanted to make sure that I didn't make the same mistakes again and that I wasn't setting myself up for failure. When the time was right after that tour of Australia with Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan we went back and forth which was a fun negotiation process which was nice because when I first started with WWE there was no negotiating at all it was just "take it or leave it pal"."
Is He Happy With The Choice?: "All I can say right now is I'm really happy with the ways things are going right now. I've had a lot of fun, granted it's only been a week. I don't have somebody telling me exactly how to be me. That's just a difference of opinion, I guess, on how things are run operationally but so far that's worked well for me. They give me bullet points and let me do my thing by letting us call our own spots and promo's in the ring."
On Hogan And Bischoff Making Changes: "I would say that they tried things a certain way for a number of years and WWE is still pulling 3.5's and TNA is pulling .9 and .8's and at some point you have to make a business decision and say "what are these guys doing over here and what are they not doing that we could be doing that would be a little bit different that could put us on top?." People don't like change and a lot of times if they give it time they come around."
On The Rumor That TNA Will No Linger Do House Shows: "This is the first thing I'm hearing about it. I kind of like the fact that I was able to tape a month's worth of TV in 4 days, and I'm not kidding you, it was great to have the rest of the month off to rest your body. That's the one thing about being on the road 52 weeks a year, and maybe that's why I was injury prone, that I was working 5 days a week."
