WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson, along with Conrad Thompson, recently recorded another episode of the ARN podcast, where they discussed The Vaudevillians.
Former NXT Tag Team Champions Simon Gotch & Aiden English received the call-up to the main roster shortly after Wrestlemania 32, and jumped right into a program with The New Day. The New Day defeated The Vaudevillians at Extreme Rules, and Money In The Bank, before Gotch and English began to get lost in the shuffle.
Anderson shared his “most honest opinion” of the duo, and told listeners:
“I’m gonna give you my honest [opinion] from my recollection,” Anderson said. “I don’t think they had enough TV time to do enough character stuff for people to understand what they were trying to do. That’s my recollection. Are we trying to help them and asking who that guy was, who they were, and who they saw those characters as being, and try to help them? But we only got a couple of minutes. It’s difficult. It’s something that abstract, so that’s what I think happened.”
