Double-A isn't here for any Aladdin shit.
Arn Anderson is convinced that the proposed comedy attire for Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder was not only a direct order to creative to bury the duo but that there was a substance involved that may have enhanced the creative abilities of those in charge of the imaginative side of WWE.
Participating in a Q&A on his podcast, Arn Anderson revealed just how he feels the proposed comedy attire for the Revival came to be. His co-host, Conrad Thompson, described the gear as “Aladdin shit,” To which Arn Anderson would say it wasn't even that good.
“If it's accurate, it doesn't phase me a bit. It doesn't surprise me a bit. To come out with something that ridiculous, would you have had to have had at least some guidance from the top? Hey, 'I want to put 12 feet of dirt on these guys. Six ain't enough.'"
He continued his interpretation of the pitch, “'So you guys go get in a room, smoke a couple of joints, just make sure it's in a state that it's legal so you don't get arrested and get my ass in a sling. You guys go get high and come up with the most ridiculous shit you can think of.' Aha, Aladdin shit!”
Ever the entrepreneurs, #FTR have turned the laughable ring gear into new merchandise available on their Pro Wrestling Tees store.
