- As seen on last night’s Impact Wrestling episode, it appeared they wrote Mr. Anderson off TV after a beatdown from Bully Ray. Anderson’s contract reportedly expires this month so he may be gone from the company. TNA posted this update on Anderson:
“On Thursday at the “No Surrender” IMPACT special, Aces and Eights President Bully Ray successfully defended the World Heavyweight Championship against Mr. Anderson in a violent and chaotic bout. Anderson refused to give up – and took a major beating from Bully Ray. Bully Ray battered and bloodied Anderson, eventually putting him through a table and winning the bout via countout. Bully Ray continued the assault after the match, dumping Anderson off a medical stretcher on the entrance ramp and annihilating him with a piledriver on the steel structure.
ImpactWrestling.com has learned that in addition to several lacerations to his head and body, Anderson suffered a possible concussion and was being examined for damage to his neck from the piledriver. Anderson will be evaluated tonight by doctors at a local St. Louis hospital, and we hope to have an update on his condition on Friday.”
– AJ Styles ended up winning TNA’s Bound for Glory Series and will face Bully Ray for the TNA World Heavyweight Title at next month’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view.
