He’ll ride somewhere else. Over the last few weeks, the WWE roster has certainly been shaken up. A lot of this is probably due to the television ratings being pretty horrific as of late, but what if it’s more than just the wrestlers? What about a producer or two? As in the people who lay out the matches? It turns out they’re being shaken up too, with a big name leaving earlier today.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Arn Anderson has been released by WWE. There is no specific reason given for his release and he has been with the company as a producer since 2001. The move comes on the same day that WWE announced three releases and just after WWE hired several new producers, such as Jeff Jarrett, Chris Parks (Abyss) and Hurricane Shane Helms.
It’s not like he didn’t have it still. Check out Anderson as the enforcer at Starrcade:
Opinion: I’m split on this one. Anderson is someone who has been around forever and has probably forgotten more about wrestling than anyone you’ll ever see but at the same time, you do need some fresh blood every now and then and it’s not like what was going on was working at the moment. I’d be curious to see if there was a specific reason that caused him to leave, as it does seem a little abrupt.
What did you think of Anderson? Who else would make a good producer? Let us know in the comments below.
