AEW’s Lance Archer Reflects on His WWE Run: What Went Wrong?

One Big Thing

Lance Archer, known as the “Murderhawk Monster” in AEW and NJPW, recently discussed his brief stint in WWE as Vance Archer on “The Snake Pit” podcast, revealing why his run with the company didn’t work out.

Key Points

  • Archer worked primarily on the “ECW” brand in WWE between 2009 and 2010.
  • His time in WWE coincided with the company’s shift toward PG programming, which restricted performers’ actions on television.
  • Archer had a conversation with Batista about the challenges of being a heel during that era of wrestling.

Why It Matters

Lance Archer’s experience in WWE sheds light on the challenges performers faced during the company’s transition to a more family-friendly product. The restrictions imposed on wrestlers during this time may have played a role in Archer’s short-lived run with the company.

Archer’s Future

As of now, Archer’s future with AEW remains uncertain, as he has not yet signed a new deal. However, the “Murderhawk Monster” believes he is still capable of performing at a high level and has expressed interest in bringing his NJPW tag team to AEW.
