A WWE Hall of Famer from The Four Horsemen group always preferred being a heel instead of a babyface during his wrestling career.
The Four Horsemen group of the 1980s and 1990s was known for being one of the most talented groups of all time. They were led by the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, who was either the NWA/WCW World Champion or in the title picture.
Arn Anderson was known as “The Enforcer” and Flair’s best friend. Anderson was essentially the glue of the group that was part of a tag team with Ole Anderson and Tully Blanchard. Arn also had plenty of success as a singles wrestler as well.
Recently on his ARN Show podcast, Arn Anderson explained why he always liked being a heel instead of a babyface.
“I was doing the best that I could do with what I was given, and I was — I’ll be the first to tell you I have no babyface skills, and that manifests itself in every single match that I have.”
“You know, all I could do was sell, which is the biggest part of our business. And someway, somehow either let them think they’re going to get a spinebuster or have them get a spinebuster, because that kind of helped me to catch up, if you know what I mean.”
WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson also really enjoyed tag team wrestling
There are many fans who consider Arn’s tag team with Tully Blanchard to be one of the best teams of all time. Arn loved tag team wrestling too, even more than being a singles wrestler.
“I always said that I prefer to work tags if the scenario is we’re the champion and we have great challengers.”
“But if it’s not a good situation for a tag match, at least if I’m single I’m in control of my own destiny.”
Recently, Arn Anderson’s son Brock Anderson departed AEW when his contract expired without a renewal. There’s no word yet on if WWE has any interest, but Brock is excited about his future.
