Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

Anderson is so beyond stale.

He was hot for 6 months in 2006? He has been riding that momentum since then, honestly he should just retire.

In other words....he is boring as all fuck.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

In my opinion Anderson gotta turn heel and drop the whole self annoncer gimmick...maybe have him blame hogan for hetting attack by the aces&eights saying if it wasnt for him not wanting bully to team with sting in the first place than he never would have been attacked by the aces&eight..than when the fans disagree with anderson have himm drop the self annoncer gimmick saying if the fans are gonna disagree with him than there not gonna get what they want that being the whole slelf annocner gimmick

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

He just needs to be either a face or a heel, the tweener role just doesnt work for him.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

To be fair to Anderson, when I first started watching TNA on a regular basis just over a year ago, he was feuding with Sting. I had no idea who he was or his past history. But as he was feuding with Sting I imagined he was a main eventer and to be honest, I didn't see anything in his work that led me to believe he didn't deserve that spot. And his turn as surfer Sting was good fun and his little feud with Immortal was interesting, too.

What I'm trying to say is, like many here I now think of Anderson as being a stale midcarder. But I didn't think that when my first exposure was that little run. SO I think he has better things in him, it's just he's not been involved in any feuds and storylines for a year so he's almost been bound to get dull. And throw in the tweener/heel/face confusion and he's just been treading water.

Then again, I get the impression TNA is quite meritocratic nowadays - if a wrestler is willing to work hard, have ideas and take the initiative, then TNA will let them run with it. Just look at Bully Ray, Chris Daniels and Aries - I'm sure no-one in TNA was planning for him to be heavyweight champ when he came back last year! The trouble is, a lot of the ex-WWE guys don't seem to have that drive (RVD, I'm looking at you!) and they just seem happy to do the bare minimum and do no more than what they're told. I don't know if that's because their gimmicks were handed to them by Vince and their promos were handed to them by the WWE writers, but they don't seem to be as willing to experiment and take risks as some of the other guys on the roster. Both RVD and Anderson need to do something new, desperately.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

Anderson stopped working out practically altogether, got very sloppy in the ring(compare his matches vs. Angle in 2010 to his matches vs. Hardy in 2011 to his matches now in 2012). He doesn't give a fuck, despite getting a HUGE salary and being given almost complete creative control over his character.

I have no sympathy for people with a sense of entitlement, and that is what Anderson has had since day one in TNA. Well, you got it, and he was hot for 6 months, now stale as fuck and barely an ounce of muscle left on him. Embarassing.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

He worked well early on, but he became the victim of constant heel/face turns. I think in the course of his first two years with the company, he switched heel/face like 4 or 5 times. That is crazy.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

He was kind of forced, but then they took him off of TVÖ and that was that. Instead of the garbage Bischoff family feud, they could have had Anderson standing up to Bischoff (+Immortal) ala SCSA and Vince. Imagine a ceiling mounted giant Styrofoam asshole pouring chocolate all over Bischoff and Immortal. Thatís the kind of indelible moment TNA should be producing.

Re: If TNA hadn't fucked Anderson's character

Anderson was great during his first months in TNA. Such a badass heel. Then TNA fucked him up by turning him face too fast, but he was still an OK worker. 2011 had been a horrible year for him then, the fast turns and title reigns of 1 month each sucked ass, so he stopped caring, I guess. Right now, he's useless. It's sad, because he could have been a big player, if everything would have been done right by TNA and Anderson himself.
