The latest episode of “ARN” with Arn Anderson and Conrad Thompson is an “Ask Arn Anything” episode.
Anderson talks about Wahoo McDaniel, The Mulkey Brothers, Rick Rude, his biggest paydays, beard grooming and much more.
Here are some highlights from the podcast:
Arn was asked what he thought of the spinner belts: “Not a fan. Putting showbiz where it doesn’t belong, being a champion means it needs to look like a championship belt. We don’t need to have sparklers tied to it or have it spinning. Championships mean you are the best at what you do. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Arn talked about working with Triple H: “He’s following the lead of his father-in-law. He is putting forward the policies that Vince has laid out. I think he speaks well. I think he has a good grasp on the business. The one blessing I had is no one had asked me nor had I volunteered to be in those meetings where they involve just the business end of what we do. Mine was always matches, setting up matches, setting up angles because he and I think a lot alike. I came from the era I came from and I think he is kind of a throwback as far as his work back to an ‘80’s style worker. He could have fit in the ’80s as far as the way he works. He’s not a big high spot guy. I dealt with him more on the mechanics of the matches and things like that. Sometimes he would ask my opinion on stuff. I think he has always been and maybe it was the plan of the company for him to one day take over the leadership of the company. Who knows? You have Shane and Steph who would probably fall in line if you really broke it down in terms of who is ahead of him, I would think. They are Vince’s kids, but who knows. Steph has her job as far as branding and Shane does his thing. I don’t know how it’s lined up and you will never know until the issue arises.”
