The latest episode of Arn Anderson’s podcast was an “ASK ARN ANYTHING” special, where The Enforcer answered a multitude of pro-wrestling-related questions on such topics as: his signature spinebuster maneuver, why he used the DDT without a setup, and what was his favorite wrestling storyline that he was involved in. Highlights from the episode can be found below.
Says the spinebuster was invented by him, and belongs to him:
The spinebuster belongs to me. It’s mine, I created it. I’m the only one that does it 100% like I do it. A lot of people have stolen it — which they have a right to do.
Why he liked using the DDT out of nowhere as opposed to the spinebuster which needs a setup:
The reason I wanted to steal it and use it it there’s no setup necessary. You can literally catch a guy out of nowhere. And if you do it somewhere where that’s the last thing they’re looking for? That’s the reaction that you get because they didn’t see it coming. The other side of the coin is? Those that like the spinebuster, the fans, they can very clearly see the setup when I shoot a guy in, get in position to him with it. They see it coming. So there’s a little bit of a precursor or warning, here it comes. It’s all in the build.
Reveals his favorite storyline of all time:
I was fortunate to have a lot of great matches and a lot of great stories. I think the Midnight Express versus Tully and I angle because it built from my friendship with Bobby [Eaton] and that festered. It was real; [Bobby] was my best friend. It started out just [Jim] Cornette wanting more for his team, and then ballooned into something personal. And personal issues have always drawn money and they always will. That was as real as it gets.
