Mr. Anderson Talks Sting In WWE, TNA’s Six-Sided Ring, The Attitude Era & More

The following are highlights of a new CBS New York interview with Mr. Anderson:

On if wrestlers had a say in the six-sided ring returning: “As far as I know (wrestlers) didn’t have any. As far as I know that was strictly an organizational thing. You know, the higher ups in the company going off of the fans vote on it. I believe that was completely out of our hands. I had no say in it as far as I know.”

On whether or not the Attitude Era is now holding pro wrestling back: “I sort of think that if fans are holding on to ECW and that era and things from the past, I sort of think that means we’re not giving them what they want to see… I think the best way to go about that is to keep trying new things until something works. And that’s what we do. That’s what our writers do. They’re continuously coming up with new ideas.”

On if Sting told TNA he was going to WWE: “No, he didn’t make any mention. This is the nature of our business. The wrestling business… people come and people go. It’s sort of been that way forever.”

      I thought he died, my mistake.

        My friend met him at the airport and I guess they were talking and ken said he just riding out wrestling for the pay until he can’t get paid anymore, and he would much rather be acting.

          If that’s true I don’t blame him, why get paid for something that could kill you or ruin your well-being when you can do something extremely similar for more money and less risk?

      The ship sailed for Ken Anderson a long time ago.

        No doubt he’s the only superstar to have ever lost the money in the bank briefcase. I mean at least Sandow cashed in and put on a decent match with Cena, Ken didn’t even get the chance.

      I forgot that shitbag was still in the business. Guy blew his chance in WWE.

      • Adam-Michael

        How did he blow his chance?
        Orton got him fired… Go back and watch the so called “accident”, Kennedy did nothing wrong in the match. Orton claims Kennedy dropped him on his shoulder during a back body drop…. which he did not, and that got him released… even though that night in the arena the fans went crazy for Kennedy, he was loved by the WWE universe and WWE kept dropping the ball with him and missing the boat

          You sir, see it the same way i do.

        • brad

          I may be a Orton fan but I agree here Ken didn’t do anything wrong and was real close to becoming the next big thing.

    • Buzzard Follower

      Nice short interview from ken. The 6 sides return made me happy but then you realize a majority of the wrestlers never used the 6 sided ring and therefore cant use it properly

    • Cullen Guzik

      Plus why should Sting tell TNA anything. He hasn’t worked there in months.
