WWE Hall Of Famer Announces 1st Appearance After AEW Exit

WWE Hall of Fame ring

A WWE Hall of Famer will be quickly back to work after leaving AEW.

On a recent episode of his podcast, Arn Anderson announced he will be leaving AEW when his contract expires on May 31st. The legendary member of the Four Horseman joined the company in 2019, and his run will likely be best remembered for teaching Cody Rhodes about reaching for the Glock on Dynamite.

In announcing his decision, the veteran thanked everyone he worked with, commenting that everyone was great.

I just want to say thank you. I appreciate everything. And that goes to everybody that works there. All my friends, Tony Schiavone, JR, all those guys, all the talent. Dean [Malenko], Billy Gunn, all that crew. Jerry [Lynn], everybody was great. So I just want to say thank you, and see you down the road.

Anderson has now announced he’ll be joining his son Brock at ASW Wrestling’s Bash in Beckley 4 on June 1st. The likes of Matt Hardy, Jimmy Hart, Dustin Rhodes, and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan will also be at the event.

Could Arn Anderson Join Cody Rhodes In WWE?

Despite Anderson saying he’s looking to spend more time working with Brock as he continues his own career, some fans aren’t convinced. In a recent interview, Cody Rhodes hinted that he could be looking for a manager as he faces a growing number of threats to his Undisputed WWE Championship.

This has sparked speculation that Anderson could be on his way back to WWE to link up with Rhodes. The veteran worked closely with the American Nightmare in AEW and would be a popular addition to his team.

Anderson briefly wrestled for WWE between 1988 and 1989, before becoming a producer and road agent for the company following the collapse of WCW in 2001. He remained in the role until he was released in early 2019.
