The ARN podcast was an opportunity for Arn Anderson to talk about the great Steve Austin and what made him so popular. Austin was committed from the very beginning of his career. Anderson pointed out that psychology also played an important role.

“Workhorse machine. He has lots of energy and all of his matches. Solid work. Good look. And, you know, Austin was way ahead on psychology for a guy that had been in the business. Not that long. I mean, if you really think about it, I don’t know how long at that point, but just a few years, right? Yeah.

He was catching on. He was destined”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Arn Anderson on Ray Traylor

One of the topics was Ray Traylor. Anderson also had only words of praise for Traylor. He believes that Traylor was well-used from the beginning of his career.

He praised the company's leaders at the time who knew how to handle Traylor. “I think that he has used well from day one, and he has used his entire career like he should have been. I mean, he walked in big Bubba Rogers was kicking ass right away.

And everywhere he went, there was no mudslide anywhere where they weren’t used improperly or anything like that. He was used well the entire time. I would say that he was in the business. And that helps. Yeah, the audience catches on.

When you push a guy properly, they go, ‘Oh, this guy’s going to be a star.’ They’re using him. They’re doing all the right things with him when they don’t do the right things with you. Sometimes, the audience.

So it’s, ‘Oh well.’ This guy will be gone next week, and they lose faith. It’s up to the office to push and promote you the proper way. And from day one. Boss was the boss”.
