• “It was such a perfectly executed screwjob” – WWE Hall Of Famer Reveals His Career Highlight

During a recent interview with Wrestlingnewsco, NWA/WWF/WCW Legend ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson revealed that looking back on his career, the actual highlight came years after he retired from active in-ring competition.

As his career highlight, the 2012 WWE Hall of Famer named the Spinebuster he performed in the famous Ric Flair vs. The Undertaker match, that was a part of the WWF WrestleMania X8 pay-per-view on March 17th 2002 at the Skydome in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Here’s what Arn Anderson had to say about that night:

“I jumped all over it. When they said ‘Hey, how’d you like to get involved with the Taker-Flair match?’, there wasn’t any of the shuffling of the feet.

‘You’re damn right, yes. Point me to the entrance’. People ask me, what’s the highest point of your career and best match and all that.

I wasn’t in the match, but I was involved in the finish of it. That’s it. It stands alone.

It was such a perfectly executed screwjob. By the time I got to ringside, I just — poof — I just popped up.

It was so well executed when I hit that Spinebuster. It was a reaction, it wasn’t like a babyface ‘That’s Arn Anderson!’. It was a ‘Holy sh*t, this may actually happen. Flair may actually beat him with this’, because of the execution, rolling out of the ring, hiding, the referee shaking it off, making the count.

It was just so well done by those guys, and it was the highlight of my wrestling career.”
