Mr. Anderson & Jeff Jarrett Speak Out - Details
Source: The Dover PostThe Dover Post in Delaware has an interview up with Mr. Anderson, here are the highlights…
On Social Media: "I was always anti-MySpace, Twitter, etc., but right after I was released from WWE, I knew that I had to have some sort of communication with fans to tell them I'm still here, I haven't gone anywhere. So a good majority of them came over."
How Long Will He Wrestle: "If I'm still doing this five years from now, please, just shoot me. I love the wrestling business, I love entertaining people, but it doesn't define me. And for people who are defined by this, that's fine. I don't judge them or look down on them, but it's not for me. After 13 years of taking abuse I have aches and pains, and my wife calls me the old man a lot — more than I would like for her to call me. But I know that I can't do this forever."
On Continuing To Wrestle: "I have to sort of reevaluate myself every year. I took a few years ago off with some personal situations, then got into a series with Kurt Angle. I put him right up there with not only my favorite matches but some of the best. I feel good, my body feels good, but I take it as it comes."
On Working Behind The Scenes: "What comes with more headaches? You'd think in the ring, but out of the ring. My family's been in business for more than 70 years — whether producing, marketing, working of the TV side of it. There are a lot of ups and owns in and out of ring, but it's my life's work, it's my passion, and when I get on the road truly it is the best part of the business from the time the doors open to close. There are a lot of headaches, like being away from home, but my time at a TNA live event, it's the best part of my job. It's the essence of what the business is. You can watch it every week on TV, but there's nothing like being there live and hearing the fans cheer, hearing them boo."
