Mr. Anderson Released From Tna
Our top story today is the release of Mr Anderson from Tna.
Last week, appearing on an Icw show in Glasgow, Ken Anderson – formerly Mr Kennedy in the WWE – revealed that he is no longer with Tna. This got the rowdy crowd – they were crowdy – chanting naughty words at Tna.
Anderson hasn’t been that heavily featured on Impact programming for a while, and Pro Wrestling Sheet have now revealed that Anderson has indeed been released by Tna following a failed drug test.
According to their sources, Anderson was apparently under the influence during a match against Eric Young which was set to air on the 19th January episode of Impact. »

Nowadays, Ken Anderson feels at home in Tna. The fallout from his WWE tenure is still clearly something that bugs the man, because it routinely comes up in interviews and other media appearances. As ‘Mr. Kennedy’, the guy was scheduled to experience a huge push towards the WWE Title. A combination of injuries and WWE Wellness Policy violations would eventually cost him that chance.
In 2009, he was released from his contract. Reported heat with Randy Orton and others in the company was cited as the main reason, and Anderson was reborn as Mr. Anderson in Impact Wrestling. This week’s article features a stunning revelation from Anderson on something none other than Vince McMahon hated about his performances. Right up until he left WWE, McMahon repeatedly admonished the wrestler for this particular decision.
That’s exactly what is focused on here, 10 pro wrestling-related facts which weren’t exactly common knowledge before this week. »
