Arn Anderson On When He Plans To Retire From The Business

WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson, who currently works as a coach in All Elite Wrestling, revealed on a recent episode of his “ARN” podcast that he’s still under contract with the company for about a year and a half, while his son Brock Anderson still has about six months left on his AEW contract, but they don’t plan on doing anything else and they’re just waiting for his son to be called to appear on AEW TV as they haven’t been on TV probably since May, though he is sure AEW President and CEO Tony Khan is struggling to get everybody on TV and get everybody rotated, which is why they are just hanging on.

This is what Arn Anderson said:

“I’m hanging on to the idea that Brock (Anderson) just hasn’t had his second chance yet because of the rotation.” “I’m sure it’s nothing that he’s done negatively. With AEW, I’m still under contract for about a year and a half, Brock about six months. We just don’t have enough segments of television to get everybody on there every week. I’m sure Tony struggles with it trying to get everybody on there and get everybody rotated, but we’re just hanging on. We don’t want to do anything else. He’s still going to the gym a couple days a week where he was trained, Lodi’s gym, here in Charlotte. We’re still getting in the ring a couple days. We just haven’t been on TV. We’ve been gone, I don’t know if you all noticed, for the entire summer. We haven’t been on TV probably since May. I know it seems long for us. I don’t know if it seems long for anybody else, but we’ve been doing some independent stuff, a few independent bookings here.”

Arn Anderson also discussed how former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley has taken interest in his son as well as how a lot of people see potential in Brock Anderson.

This is what Arn Anderson said:

“I know Moxley has taken an interest in him, a couple days of TV, got him in the ring in front of some of the other young boys and wrestled them around a little bit. I think a lot of people see potential in Brock, but still he’s in that stage where he’s still very, very green. He hasn’t had maybe 30 or 40 matches, but the key to this is business in getting better is consistency and wrestling reps, day after day, three days in a row, four days in a row. That’s how you get better and that’s just not an opportunity where we are now. I’m just going to plan on a year and a half from now being retired from the business. Hopefully we’ll be able to get Brock ready for that. So ‘23 should be me on the beach somewhere, more than once.”
