Arn Anderson told The State that he imagined himself wrestling another five years if he hadn’t been injured and talked about his retirement night and more. Check out the highlights:
On his last match: “The fans gave me a warm send off. They didn’t know it was coming, and I didn’t even know it coming. That was something I decided on that day. It was time.”
On how long he would have continued if not for injury: “To be honest, I had hoped to have a 20-year wrestling career and call it a day a wealthy man. I was going to walk away in one piece, but that wasn’t the case. I was so fortunate that I paid attention to the inner workings of the industry. That afforded me a backup and allows me to work with all the young talent.
On current wrestling travel schedules: “What they call off days now are travel days and trying to get home as much as you can. The schedule they have now is actually harder than we had.”
