Arn Anderson has discussed the type of wrestler Triple H is as he looked back over The Game’s WrestleMania 32 main event with Roman Reigns.
Triple H and Reigns met in the main event on ‘The Grandest Stage Of Them All’ in 2016. Triple H had won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Reigns in that year’s Royal Rumble match. Reigns challenged Triple H for the chance to reclaim the title at WrestleMania. In a highly competitive math Reigns dodged The Game’s sledgehammer and hit Triple H with three spears to win back the championship.
Speaking on his ARN podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Arn Anderson discussed that match. Anderson also divulged his feelings about Triple H as a worker in the ring.
“Well, number one, Hunter is a worker that would have probably come out of 1985 to 1990 – he’s an 80s worker. It’s a lot easier to get yourself back into shape, I think when you work that style. He’s a wrestler and his style is a wrestler, and Roman Reigns is not a high-spot guy either. So for the participants involved it was probably physically a good match-up. Timing-wise and all the other things you’ve got to consider, what’s going on with the build to Roman, how is Hunter perceived at that moment in time.”
“You know you get to a point in this business, when you’ve been around and you’ve been on top for a long time, it’s not about wins or losses, you become iconic in people’s eyes because they know what they’re going to get with you. They get comfortable with you, they have expectations of you and I think everyone knew it was going to be a good match.”
Arn Anderson also discussed Charlotte Flair and the possibility that she has to live in her father Ric Flair’s shadow. Charlotte Flair won the reinstated WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 32.
