ECW Original CW Anderson Coming Out Of Retirement

Veteran wrestler CW Anderson, who competed in the original Extreme Championship Wrestling, has announced his decision to come out of retirement.

The announcement, made on The Enforcer’s Instagram page, referred to the move as his New Year’s Resolution, having hung up the boots just last year:

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!

Prior to his retirement in June 2020, Anderson had kept a busy schedule, appearing across the US independent scene and most notably featuring on Episode 20 of NWA Powerrr.

The former ECW star, who featured in the company’s twilight years, had a brief stint in the WWE revival of the show, wrestling twelve matches for the brand before quietly being released.
