All Elite Wrestling (AEW) performer Arn Anderson recently spoke with Inside The Ropes for an interview about his legendary pro wrestling career.
During the discussion, the former “Enforcer” of the iconic Four Horsemen faction led by “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair spoke about the memorable spot he was involved in during the Flair vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania 18, which is the bout “The Deadman” credits as the one where his legendary undefeated streak at WrestleMania truly became established as a factor in the build-up to his match on “The Grandest Stage of Them All.”
Featured below are some of the highlights from the new Inside The Ropes interview with Double A.
On the spinebuster he delivered to The Undertaker at WrestleMania 18 being his favorite of all-time: “Well, people ask me – what is my favorite spinebuster of all time? I don’t think there’s one that’s in second place. That was it.”
On that spot in the WM18 showdown being one where fans bit on the thought that Undertaker was going to lose: “I think the key was I got down there without being seen. it was like I just magically appear, “Boof!” I was there And the setup was so good and all the pieces of the puzzle were so good, referee’s down, the spinebuster looked pretty convincing, I think. When I rolled out and hit the floor, everybody in that building thought, “Oh, God, they’re going to pull this off! It was actually set up well enough that, “That’s it. That’s going to be it.” And when he kicked out, it was almost like a gasp, a sigh of relief, but that’s the thing that was so special about it, it was done in a way that the audience believes, ‘Oh, God, here it comes.’”
