Arn Anderson: Cody Rhodes Brought Me Out Of Mothballs And Let Me Enjoy The Business Again

Arn Anderson says his time with Cody Rhodes in AEW allowed him to enjoy his time in the wrestling industry again.

Arn Anderson was brought into All Elite Wrestling as the on-screen coach of Cody Rhodes. Even though their time together came to an end when Cody Rhodes returned to WWE in 2022, Anderson says he is eternally grateful for Cody Rhodes "bringing him out of mothballs" and allowing him to enjoy the wrestling industry again.

"Cody brought me out of mothballs and, in the time was with him, let me enjoy the business again when I was completely burned out on the backstage part of it. I was never burned out on the performance side of it. So he made that happen. Thank you to Tony Khan. Thank you, Cody. I mean, once again, they allowed me to enjoy the business again and love the business, which I've always loved the wrestling part of it, just not too much on the politics. It just consumes you. So, I will be eternally grateful," said The Enforcer on the latest episode of his ARN podcast.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Anderson laid out his dream scenario for WrestleMania 40 and noted that no matter what happens, he's pulling for Cody to finally finish his story. Read his comments here.
