— ECW original and MLW Tag Team Champion CW Anderson once again joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio, the official podcast of Major League Wrestling, which drops a new show each and every week for FREE at MLW.com and on iTunes. During the interview, Anderson spoke about his WWE release.
“I injured my back working Kevin Thorne and I couldn’t go to the next TV tapings because I’d slipped a disc in my back,” Anderson explained. “They start paying for rehab because I can’t work, I can barely walk. The WWE doctor calls me one day and says Vince needs you to come in and take these steroid injections in your back so you can come back to work. I said it wasn’t going to happen. I was a baseball player for 15 years. I know what steroid injections in your back do. They numb your back, all it does is numb it. You go out there and think nothing is wrong and when the pain wears off you’re worse off than what you were.”
