Andrew Anderson

Celebrity Hall, Bay Center 2nd Floor

Andrew Anderson got his start in the wrestling world in 1997, discovered by wrestling legend Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. He trained extensively under the tutelage of Gino Caruso, Nickolai Volkoff, and the Kodiak Bear at Caruso's ECPW gym.

His first tag team partner was Volkoff back in 1997. Anderson has a great love and respect for the wrestling greats that he watched as a child, and it's fitting that he now has earned their respect. Andrew Anderson is the first JCW heavyweight champion, a title he won back in 2000. He's also the former ECPW tag champ twice with Pub Bully,and the former ECPW TV champ,defeating Mo Sexy in a brutal cage match still considered one of the greatest cage matches in Indy Pro Wrestling.

As ECPW champ, he successfully defended his title against icons like Tito Santana, the Metal Maniac, Tony Atlas,Test, Demolition, Ax, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, Crowbar, Johhny Thundar, Mo Sexy, Nikolai Volkoff, and Superfly Snuka. Formerly managed by Doug Devito, Anderson is now managed, strangely enough, by the Creeper.

Anderson, never one to rest on his laurels, got bitten by the acting bug in 2001. He starred as the Werewolf in Director Michael P. Russin's horror anthology entitled Creepy Tales - Girls Night Out. He also starred as a Viking in a recent General Electric commercial. He made an appearance as Andrew "The Anvil" Anderson in a locker room scene in the The Wrestler, which stars Mickey Rourke.

Anderson is married with two daughters, Olivia and Hope, and a stepson named Ryan.

Andrew Anderson had a dream of becoming a wrestling star, and he has achieved it.
