A little over six months after initially announcing his retirement, ECW veteran CW Anderson now says he's had a change of heart about retiring from the squared circle.
In June of 2020, CW Anderson announced that he would be retiring from wrestling after a career that saw him become a main player in ECW and capture gold in the NWA and Major League Wrestling as well.
"The decision I made, knowing what I was getting ready to do, was like a cleansing. 27 years ago, I went from being Chris Wright, a highly prospected baseball player, to 'no one knows who I am' CW Anderson. I took the name Anderson, honored it, did the best I could with it. 27 years later, I've finally come to the decision that, as far as CW Anderson and professional wrestling is concerned, he's done. I've let CW Anderson take over Chris Wright's life and become something that I don't know who I am or who I was," Anderson had initially written on his Facebook page.
Now, he takes to Instagram to announce that he is not retiring, after all, calling his decision the worst mistake he'd ever made.
“My new years resolution was to be done with the worst mistake I made over the summer for a part of my life that was never worth it. Retiring. Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees and I was in a dark place in my life. Thank God those days are behind me. Door closed and locked, nailed shut, house burnt to the ground and those worthless ashes flushed down the toilet of the new house I currently reside in. In a few short days I'll be 50 and time to get back in the ring and wrestle. As long as I'm able to, I'm gonna wrestle. For everyone that messaged me over the summer, I can't thank you enough but there were so many that didn't want it to be true. Now I have the biggest supporter in my corner and she wants this as much as I. Time to show up!”
Anderson had briefly appeared for WWE and was one of CM Punk's first victories in WWE.
