• Arn Anderson Breaks Silence After Getting Fired From WWE
As we have noted before, Arn Anderson is no longer a backstage worker in WWE as he was recently released. He worked in a backstage capacity in WWE for 18 years.
According to Wrestlinginc, Anderson got fired for allowing RAW wrestler Alicia Fox to wrestle at a WWE Live Event while being intoxicated.
Fox showed up intoxicated at a Live Event and Arn was the agent for her match. Arn made the decision to have Fox wrestle that night and this didn’t sit well with Vince McMahon, and Arn ended up getting released.
Anderson was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated and was asked about being released from WWE.
Below is what Anderson said:
“I was fortunate enough to work with WWE for 18 years. Certainly that provided my family and myself with a nice living, and I have no regrets. A lot of my best friends still work there. Everything has a shelf life, and I guess mine ran out.”
