To most in professional wrestling, working for WWE is a dream. For Arn Anderson, he hated it.
With over 40 years of service in the industry of pro wrestling and being a key part of the legendary Four Horsemen stable, there’s a reason why Arn Anderson is in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Fame. After he retired from the squared circle, Anderson got a backstage gig as a producer in WWE up until 2019.
Arn Anderson was released from the company in 2019 after allegedly letting former WWE Superstar Alicia Fox take part in a house show while being intoxicated. To most people in his position, it would have been a huge hit to their career, however, it wasn’t that big of a deal to Anderson.
In fact, he hated working for WWE in his producer role, and he recently explained why on his “ARN” podcast.
“If you want the truth, I hated that job. I hated being in charge of matches that I had no power, you know, or authority. So, I was responsible for the end result. If the story that was told or the physicality was not good, finish wasn’t good, whatever, Vince chewed my ass out. Okay, so, but the problem with that was, that’s okay if you’re going to give me full reign to do what I want to do.”
