Arn Anderson On WWE Release: My Shelf Life Ran Out

Arn Anderson offers a brief comment on his WWE release.

Anderson worked in WWE as a backstage producer/agent for 18 years before being released on Feb. 21. It was later reported by Wrestling Inc that Anderson was let go after allowing Alicia Fox to wrestle while intoxicated at a live event. Fightful reported that several WWE superstars were upset about the situation but expected Anderson to be back in the company once things calmed down.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Arn commented on WWE's decision to let him go.

“I was fortunate enough to work with WWE for 18 years,” said Anderson. “Certainly that provided my family and myself with a nice living, and I have no regrets. A lot of my best friends still work there. Everything has a shelf life, and I guess mine ran out.”

Yesterday, it was announced that Anderson will be part of Starrcast II in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend. “It used to be a dangerous setting when they handed me a live mic. So we’ll see if it will be again," said Anderson.

Anderson joins names such as Ric Flair, Sting, Bret Hart, and The Undertaker as confirmed guests for Starrcast II.
