In the latest episode of his ARN podcast, AEW Manager and Producer Arn Anderson looks back on the collapse of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). There, the Enforcer called the promotion a burning fire that couldn’t be extinguished in time. Listen to what he had to say below.
I couldn’t sprinkle it with magical dust, apply new paint, or rationalize it. For me, it was during my life that the company I really loved, Jim Crockett Promotions, transformed into WCW and then WCW. Seeing it burning, the fire truck did not participate in it. time. I was the man who answered the phone and stood in front of the house, three-quarters burning. The man called from the dispatch and said, “Sorry, Earn, we are still 45 minutes by fire engine. I’m not going to be in time.”
There is a moment in my head that says “this is the end”. As I know the business is over, this company will probably be done. No matter how hard I try, I can’t fight and it’s physically impossible. It was a really depressed and depressing time for me. I had every job, every dream, every young man – if the company goes bankrupt, at least half of the jobs in the industry will sink with it. Having to sit there and look is like someone holding my head straight and saying, “Look at the monitor.” There is a future. It doesn’t look very bright. I feel sick.
