Arn was requested, “Excluding AEW, who’s actively wrestling at the moment, who in your opinion, is a particular Corridor of Famer?”

Arn stated, “How is AJ Kinds not on the high of the listing?  Seth Rollins I feel needs to be on the listing.  I feel Randy Orton clearly is on the listing.  That’s a no brainer proper?  How about Rey Mysterio?  Obtained to be.  I’m positive I’m going to depart out a ton of fellows and I undoubtedly don’t imply to.  For positive these guys.  I’m sorry if I insulted anyone and left them out.  You need to choose every man in a different way.  What does he convey to the desk?  It is going to be attention-grabbing to see when Roman Reigns’ profession shakes out, the twists and turns that will have gotten him to, I’m fairly positive, the Corridor of Fame.  He has actually come on the final 12 months as a result of he was allowed to be himself and that’s at all times a very good factor.”

If you take a look at him and somebody says, ‘That’s Brian Pillman’s child’, you say, ‘Yea, I see that.’  It’s extra so than how he acts.  I feel they’re approach completely different in the way in which they conduct themselves.  Davey Boy Jr referred to as me a pair instances and textual content me a pair instances.  I spoke to him.  I feel the world of that child.  I at all times have.  He’s at all times been a go getter and is attempting to shine his craft.  His work has regularly obtained higher.  I cherished him and TJ (Tyson Kidd) as a workforce.  My God, have been they good.  That’s one other one which, no telling how good they may have been if they may have stayed collectively for five years.  I obtained a sense he’s going to be a sizzling commodity when issues open again up and I might positive like to have him.”

Conrad Thompson stated “That is topical as a result of we simply lined this with Bruce (Prichard). What do you keep in mind of the John Cena – Kevin Federline match on Uncooked again on New 12 months’s Day in 2007 and have been you the agent for the match?”

Arn responded,  “Yep. Sure sir and it was rotten. What did anyone assume it was going to be?”

Conrad stated, “Bruce defended it and stated that it was nice publicity, blah, blah, blah, however I figured you couldn’t have been a fan of getting your champion on the market with a dancer.”

Arn stated, “I flew out a pair weeks beforehand with John and we met him and Federline.  Somebody had a hoop on the market on the West Coast.  I’m unsure precisely who’s ring it was however for a pair hours we tried to indicate him some fundamentals.  No offense to Kevin.  You don’t simply stroll on this enterprise and decide it up in a day.  You simply don’t.  If that was the case, each individual alive can be knowledgeable wrestler as a result of it’s essentially the most great approach to make a dwelling on the planet.  However I’ve by no means been a proponent of getting actors come into our enterprise, and notoriously 100% of the time, that is what occurs.  They stroll in from the leisure trade and in order that we will be on Leisure Tonight or we’re going to be on regardless of the leisure present stands out as the subsequent day, or get press on ESPN, now we have our guys must bow all the way down to the actors.  It at all times drove me loopy.  Do you assume it will damage something if a extremely expert wrestler beat an actor who was a 3rd his dimension?  I don’t assume so.  I feel it will be simpler to swallow as a result of notoriously what finally ends up occurring is whoever that superstar is that they create, our followers are there to look at wrestlers and wrestling.  They don’t seem to be there to look at Kevin Federline or to see Jay Leno standing above Hulk Hogan with an armbar utilized.  David Arquette I feel is a really good man and really respectful.  To see him in any style simply survive being within the ring with one among our guys exams the whole lot we try to do every day.  Bruce has obtained to remain the course with the thought course of.  I’m fairly positive that nobody goes to agree with me so far as being proper, however you’ll be able to solely prostitute your self, your trade, your small business so many instances and folks take a look at you want, okay, they obtained a plug on Leisure Tonight, however come on man.  I’m not shopping for that.  What a bunch of crap.  So, do you find yourself long run hurting the expertise that has to carry out this or is the quick time period aim of getting on Leisure Tonight for a 30 second spot price it?  In all probability for anyone with a better pay grade than me to reply, however, who is aware of?”

Arn speaking about Brodie Lee: “Brodie Lee is one among my dearest pals. I like that man perpetually. He’s simply top-of-the-line folks, performer, enterprise man, father, husband.  I might go on and on and on and on.  He was a type of folks that you simply meet and you realize he’s real.  His love for his household and his love for the enterprise and the followers for that matter was unparalleled. When you take a look at the outpour, and universally, I might go on file as saying this:  I’ve by no means seen anybody concerned in our enterprise so celebrated, their life, their passing, what that they had completed, as Brodie Lee has been.  I imply, the outpouring from the followers, I wish to thanks very dearly.  I do know what it meant to his spouse.  It’s one thing that’s going to be very tough to reside with, however we have a good time the person that he was and at all times can be to all of us.”
