• Arn Anderson Says RAW Wrestler Had Backstage Heat For Main Eventing WrestleMania
On an episode of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson talked about The Miz going into WrestleMania 27 as the WWE Champion to defend the Title against John Cena in the main event, a spot that got Miz a lot of heat with his fellow locker room colleagues, who did not feel he deserved it.
Arn explained the above mentioned 2011 situation like this:
“I would say there’s a lot of talent at that WrestleMania that were pi$$ed that Miz was in that spot.
When being in a match with Randy Orton is looked at as being mid-card, that’s pretty friggin’ stout. And I mean at any time and under any circumstances.
To look at that as being less, that tells you something’s going on in somebody’s mind.
There was a lot of animosity around and a lot of people that were trying to get over and move up in position.
When Miz was wrestling Cena, I just know that there were a lot of guys that felt like they should’ve been in that spot.
If you didn’t want to be in that spot, something’s wrong with you. There was some tension here or there.”
