AEW star, WWE Hall of Famer, and Four Horseman Arn Anderson has given an indication if he’s likely to compete in one last wrestling match.
2022 has been a year of last wrestling matches with Ric Flair competing in what was billed as the final bout of his illustrious career in July. Donning his boots and robe one final time, The Nature Boy teamed with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat the duo of Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett.
Flair’s former rival Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat will also compete in what is sure to be the final match of his career as he gets set to enter the ring again for the first time in over 12 years.
One man that knows both Steamboat and Flair well is current AEW coach Arn Anderson. Anderson was asked during a virtual signing for Highspots if he had any notions about one last bout – an idea he quickly dismissed:
“I had my last match in ’97. When the doctor said ‘quit wrestling or quit walking [shrugs].'”
Arn Anderson was forced to hang up his boots in 1997 due to extensive back and neck injuries. His retirement speech is considered one of the best and most emotional promos of all time as he offered his spot in the legendary Four Horsemen to Curt Hennig. WCW infamously turned this into an angle where Hennig betrayed the Horsemen for the NWO and Anderson was parodied by Kevin Nash.
