Arn Anderson On His Issues With Sting V. Triple H At Wrestlemania 31

During his “ARN” podcast, Arn Anderson was critical of the match between Sting and Triple H at Wrestlemania 31. He believes that it happened far too late in their careers and the commentary made it clear that the WWE had an agenda that didn’t include making Sting look like a star. Here are the highlights:

On The Match Needing To Take Place Earlier In Their Careers:

Well I thought it was 15 years too late. We can all look back at ‘want to be’s’ and I’m a guy that thinks Taker should still be riding his wave of his undefeated Streak. That’s just me. You only get one crack at some stuff. Sting being the last hold-out would’ve been nice if Sting would’ve came across when WCW was done and be pushed like the star that he was.

On The Commentary Pushing An Agenda:

To try to reset the audience, all it did was give the announcers (and I know this was fed to ’em) they just buried Sting. ‘Minnow in a big pond,’ you know? Total condescending, ‘Guy’s out of his element,’ ‘this is WrestleMania now,’ ‘you’re just a small minnow in a huge lake,’ whatever all the commentary was exactly. It was meant to just basically just beat you over the head with ‘We won the war. We’re WWE – we won the war. Here’s your big star, well, he ain’t a big star here tonight.
