Karl Anderson Reveals The Kind Gesture That Nakamura Did For Him When He Was Broke
Karl Anderson Was recently guests on Lilian Garcia’s podcast, Chasing Glory. During the interview, they spoke on a wide variety of topics.
One of the best parts was when Karl Anderson shared the story of the act of kindness that Shinsuke Nakamura did for him. This was when they were training together in Japan and Anderson had no money.
“It was two years, it was terrible like living in this dojo, you know I had no money at all. There was a time when Shinsuke Nakamura was there too. He had just came in from New Japan just to be there.”
“He said ‘Karl, please let’s go eat.’ I said, ‘Shinsuke, I can’t eat, buddy I’m a little low on money.’ He says, ‘What? No, come with me, come with me, please.’”
“So we go and he takes me to an ATM and he goes ‘Put in your card in your ATM.’ I said, ‘I don’t have any money in it, please, don’t make me do it.’ He goes, ‘Put your card in the ATM.’ So I put it in and he goes, ‘Check balance,’ and I do and I got like $14 in there and he goes, ‘What happened?!’ I said, ‘Life, man.’”
“He says, ‘I take care,’ and for like six months he bought me food every single day. I could have gotten a job, right? The people there told me they didn’t want me getting a job, they wanted me training every day. Sometimes there would be food there, there’s proteins, so there was some stuff to eat, but Shin took care of me every night.”
