This is What Was On Arn Anderson's Mind at WWE Survivor Series 1989
By NICK MILLER
Together with Tully Blanchard, Arn Anderson is remembered as the one who helped define the modern tag team wrestling. On his “Arn” podcast, Anderson spoke about his experience at Survivor Series 1989, as he prepared to jump back to WCW from WWE.
Anderson said he was thinking, “This was my last night on the job, and I'm going home. Tomorrow morning. 8 o'clock flight, I'm going to Charlotte [...] I was just floating. I was ready to go home.” He revealed that by the time he had decided to head to WCW, WWE owner Vince McMahon agreed to double his pay, but “The Enforcer” didn’t stay.
After the PPV, Anderson returned to WCW and was quickly crowned the NWA World Television Champ before reforming the Four Horsemen with Ric Flair, Ole Anderson, and Paul Roma. Anderson remained a prominent wrestling figure until his retirement in 1997 and in 2012 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his work with the Four Horsemen.
