• Vince McMahon Told Commentators To Bury Legendary Superstar At WrestleMania

During a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson revealed that Vince McMahon instructed the commentators to bury fellow WWE Hall of Famer Sting during his WrestleMania 31 match against Triple H.

Below is what Arn said:

“All it did was give the announcers – and I know this was fed to them – they just buried Sting. ‘Minnow in a big pond.’ Just total condescending. ‘Guy’s out of his element.’ ‘This is WrestleMania now.’ ‘You’re just a small minnow in a huge lake.’

They [WCW] led for all those weeks but, in the end, here’s your last remaining guy and he was your biggest star, and we [WWE] just crushed him before your very eyes at the biggest event of the year.”
