• Former WWE Wrestler Recalls Arn Anderson Killing Their Morale Before PPV Match
During a recent appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams Show, former WWE wrestler Mike Knox opened up about Arn Anderson killing their morale before his ECW December to Dismember 2006 PPV match.
Below is what Knox said:
“We were trying to get ECW over and we were trying to convince the original ECW fans that this was gonna be kinda like that. That was what we were trying to do. So I went up there and I wrestled Sandman, let him beat me all over the place, slinging kendo sticks and taking half of my ear off, just doing all of that.
Kelly Kelly was there and we tried not to put her in it too much because she didn’t really know. So, I did something like that, and we did something with Balls Mahoney after that and they started to turn it to where she was starting to flirt with the other boys.
So she’d flirt with Balls a little bit, and then all of a sudden she started flirting with CM Punk and I’d be like, ‘hey, what the heck are you doing?’ She didn’t really talk a lot back then, but it was supposed to pressure finally a good run with me and CM Punk, instead of me with like Sabu or Balls or Sandman, the original guys. So it was supposed to be me and CM Punk and they were supposed to really rev that up like the two young ECW guys getting to go at it over this beautiful girl.
We were was sitting there and I was taking over the match, and Arn Anderson came up and was like, ‘listen, it doesn’t matter what you guys do. Nobody’s gonna be watching you. You gotta make sure the girls know what they need to do, and it really doesn’t matter what you guys do out there, nobody is even gonna remember it.’
So I was like, oh geez, thanks Arn. Like, one of my childhood heroes. So I looked at Kevin Thorn, he’s looking at me, and I’m like, dude, let’s show these guys. Let’s get in there and really beat the crap out of each other.
We were like, let’s bring it. So, even if nobody else remembers it, we will. So we went out there and we just beat the living crap out of each other.”
