Arn Anderson "ARN" Podcast Highlights

Arn Anderson On Protecting Wrestlers In AEW From Themselves: “We Need To Dial Down The Danger”

Jim Cornette isn’t a fan of All Elite Wrestling.

What does “The Enforcer” think of this?

On a recent edition of his podcast, ARN, WWE Hall Of Fame legend and current performer and behind-the-scenes agent/producer for AEW, Arn Anderson, responded to fellow wrestling legend Jim Cornette being an open critic against the AEW product.

Featured below are some of the highlights of Arn Anderson reacting to Jim Cornette’s criticism of AEW from a recent installment of his ARN podcast.

On Jim Cornette not being a fan of AEW and his criticism of the product: “Well, Jimmy, like everybody else and every single person on this earth, they have a right to their opinion. I would just say: stay true to whatever you truly believe and you have the right to feel any way you want. I have mixed feelings about a lot of things in this world, and you have a right to voice them.

“Jimmy has his way of looking at the business and I respect a lot of that. I also think we all have to evolve and we have to cater to some of what’s already been introduced as far as higher impact moves, and bumps, and things of that nature, and just the sheer physical part of how the business has evolved.”

On feeling like AEW needs to “dial down a little bit of the danger”: “We have to accept that that’s here and it’s probably going to stay, but I also do respect the fact that we have to protect the talent from themselves. We’ve got to protect the story that we’re telling in the ring and we have to protect each other, and I do feel, which I think Jimmy does too, is we’ve got to dial down a little bit of the danger and some of the things that talent are doing.

“We got to protect them from themselves, and a lot of things – Jimmy – I share his thoughts about old school rules of the business, and I certainly have my own way looking at the business these days. But I do think we have to be flexible in our thought process and, more or less, get our finger on the pulse of which is the most important. What does the audience want, and listen to our audience and listen to what they say.”
