• “Santino Marella should’ve got a little bit bigger push” – WWE Hall Of Famer
During a recent edition of the Arn podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson talked about Santino Marella’s WWE run.
Anderson thinks Marella should’ve been pushed a little more. Here’s what he said:
“He was destined to go nowhere until he came up with this character. The first time I saw it, I almost hit the ring and beat him up myself because I hated it so bad. But I stepped back and talked to a couple of guys that night that I trusted their opinions, and they said ‘Give this guy a chance because this guy really has a grip on this character’.
After about the second night of watching this, I was absolutely rolling because you had to just accept the fact that this guy has found his niche and is 360 degrees from where it was prior to this. He was so entertaining and was so much fun.
That’s another guy I think they might have missed the boat on – he should’ve got a little bit bigger push and it was hilarious. It was just accepting something I wouldn’t have come up with – I couldn’t have pictured that guy in a thousand years. But he did, and he made it work, and he was very successful with it.”
