• Arn Anderson Fired Over Incident With Vince McMahon

As we noted before, ProWrestlingSheet reported that longtime backstage producer Arn Anderson was released from WWE back on Thursday.

In an update to this, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Arn was fired from WWE over an incident with Vince McMahon.

Below is what Meltzer said:

“Arn got fired. It’s an incident, I mean everyone is pretty much keeping quiet about what it was, but it was an incident with Vince. I know people who are siding with Arn. I know people who are siding with Vince. I don’t know the whole details of the incident other than it was something at a house show that evidently wasn’t handled well and Arn took the blame for that.

Arn and Vince were not really on the best of terms. There had been a lot of situations over the years and another one not too long ago. You know the thing with Arn is he’s well-liked by key people — Triple H, John Cena, you know he’s John Cena’s agent.”
