Arn Anderson Opens Up About His Time In WWE

Arn Anderson Opens Up About His Time In WWE

Legendary wrestler Arn Anderson is currently signed with AEW, but prior to that he was working for WWE in a backstage role. 

Anderson was released from WWE in February 2019, and during a recent episode of his podcast, he opened up about his time in WWE. 

On when he knew his WWE run was ending:“Probably four years, somewhere in there, before I got canned. I was getting blamed for stuff that was perceived to be my fault, that wasn’t my fault. My opinion was not valued. You know, something I’m not sure that everybody knows — and I’m sure they don’t — is that besides our duties on the road when you’re a producer, and you’re traveling all those miles and going out on Friday and sometimes driving 1,000 miles before you get to RAW, and then you got another couple 300 that night, and you drive, and you gotta be there early for Smackdown. And on top of all that, they would send the [script for the] show out, sometimes on Sunday night, so after you had already put in 1,000 miles. You had already did a show, you had driven to RAW, however far that was. Then you would get an e-mail, and you would have to critique the show. You’d have to read through a three-hour RAW, give your opinions, suggestions. Same thing with Smackdown. Now it doesn’t matter that it’s 4 in the morning and you’re dead tired. But that’s all the producers.

“Very rarely in those last four years, was anything that anyone of us had offered — because you would get a sheet with the producer suggestions and names that go by them. And they never would use any of those suggestions. And I knew when my opinion was no longer valued. And [if] you would speak up, it would be taken the wrong way. It was almost like it was Creative vs. the producers, which was the farthest thing from the truth. We were doing all we could to support their ideas. A lot of them we disagreed with, and we’d voice it. And it would get kicked around the room, but by the time it got back to the beginning, it would just be what was written originally.”
