The latest episode of “ARN” with Arn Anderson and Conrad Thompson is available now. This week, they talk about Survivor Series 2014.
Cesaro was one of the many wrestlers discussed on the show. He’s someone who many fans feel could have been a main eventer. At one point, in 2014, it looked like there were plans to do more with him when he was paired with Paul Heyman but those plans were quickly dropped.
In response to a question on why Cesaro did not get a bigger push Arn says, “he was probably outspoken. He probably stood up for himself, which is not taken lightly or very well. This is a guy that did a giant swing on Khali for God’s sake. If you didn’t see it, pull it up and find it … He had the wherewithal to giant swing Big Show for God’s sakes.”
Arn went on to say that Cesaro couldn’t do so many power spots when he teamed with Sheamus because he had to work as a heel whose job was to help get babyfaces over.
These days, Cesaro is not doing a whole lot on television. He’s been wrestling and losing on most live events. He lost to Mansoor at the Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia but he and Shinsuke Nakamura teamed up last week and they defeated Ali and Shorty G in Manchester so, perhaps, there’s a bit of a push coming his way.
This episode covers a ton of topics including Alberto Del Rio’s issues with a backstage employee that led to the employee and Del Rio leaving the company. They talk about what went wrong with Jack Swagger’s (Jake Hager) run in WWE, why some guys get start-and-stop pushes, when Arn knew that Sting was on his way to WWE, Bray Wyatt, Damien Mizdow, Dustin Rhodes, and much more.
