On the most recent “ARN” podcast, Arn Anderson and Conrad Thompson coated WWE Elimination Chamber 2011. That present included John Cena, CM Punk, Sheamus, John Morrison, Randy Orton, and R-Fact in a Chamber match for the WWE Championship. That present additionally featured a second Chamber match for the World Championship that includes Edge, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Drew McIntyre, Wade Barrett, and The Massive Present. Additionally, the cardboard included The Miz vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler and Daniel Bryan vs. Ted DiBiase Jr. amongst different matches.
Arn stated he was not a fan of Mistico (unique Sin Cara) and why he thought he didn’t work out in WWE:
“Nicely, as a result of they didn’t ask anyone in America who we thought was the very best Mexican wrestler on this planet. This man got here in with all this hype. It was a type of instances, and it was mentioned, and true, you wanted a Mexican star in the event you’re going to run Mexico or Spanish international locations. Rey Mysterio was that man. You don’t change Rey.
There’s no person coming alongside, I’d say anyone to at the present time, that’s going to eclipse Rey Mysterio and all that he’s achieved. However, sitting within the genius workplace, I’m certain the dialog went like this, ‘Rey has been damage a pair instances. He’s too little anyway. We acquired to get one other Mexican star in right here. Who you bought?’ Nicely, this man didn’t present me something. Not a rattling factor. He had a nasty perspective. If he spoke English, he acted like he didn’t. We’re not speaking about Hunico. We’re speaking concerning the unique Sin Cara. He was a type of guys that flat introduced simply the Mexican fashion. That’s what he dropped at our product.
Our product was not prepared for that lack of contact, lack of promoting, all these issues, simply the whirlybird stuff that had no psychology behind it. I like Rey Mysterio due to a number of causes. He’s small, however he found out a solution to work his matches the place he used each little bit of his physique to knock you down or chip away at you and get you able that he may do a springboard or no matter it was and knock you down. On the finish of the day, he spent a lot of the match promoting. He had one flurry that made sense that was capable of get him virtually to profitable, or profitable, however in a approach that made sense. None of that reasoning was on this man’s software belt. He thought he would simply bounce guys round twice his measurement, little or no promoting, and simply come out of nowhere. Every little thing I had been taught about this enterprise and all the things the viewers loves, the storytelling, the promoting, the underdog, all that stuff, was misplaced on him. However, he got here from the highest.
We needed to have a star so these of us who had these emotions and relayed these emotions simply acquired warmth. Similar to all the things else. Once you level out the plain to the braintrust some locations, they don’t like the truth that as soon as they hear it, they go, ‘You realize, he’s proper. He’s slapping me within the face with it and I don’t prefer it. I don’t like the truth that he’s slapping me within the face with it,’ when all you’re doing is declaring the plain.”
