Arn Anderson On Ryback In WWE, Styles Clash Being Considered Dangerous, WWE’s Mistake With Curtis Axel

In a recent edition of ARN, Arn Anderson discussed Ryback in WWE, the Styles Clash being considered dangerous, and much more. You can read his comments below. Arn Anderson on Ryback in WWE: “I always had no issues and a great working relationship with Ryback. There were a lot of things that I would pull him aside and explain to him in advance. My feeling about what they were going to with him – let my say this, there was a point when the ‘Feed Me More’ stuff started and they first started pushing him, it got over pretty good. He was pretty hot at one time. And again, here’s that line – they cut his water off, and I don’t know why. But it was so sudden and such a turn, it makes you wonder that there was a conversation somewhere that I wasn’t privy too. Somewhere he picked up some heat with the wrong guy, and that’s the only thing I can figure happened because the guy was selling merch. He looked like a million dollars, and he was getting over, which is what you want. And he had that Vince look. So, I couldn’t figure out what the negatives were. I never had an issue working with him on matches or anything. He was always very, very easy to work with. If he’s getting himself ready for another run, we’ll see how that goes.”
