Mr. Anderson’s reign as TNA World Heavyweight Champion came to an end tonight at Against All Odds as he lost the title to Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match. Anderson obtained the belt from Hardy last month at Genesis. The win surprised a lot of critics of the company as Hardy is in the middle of court dates, but TNA must have been confident enough that he wouldn’t be deemed guilty because they ended up giving him the title, which was put on Anderson in the first place because of his trials.
The TNA World Heavyweight Champion is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday to face a variety of charges relating to his September 2009 arrest on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids. A search of his North Carolina residence yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia.
