Arn Anderson recently spoke with Kevin Kellam of Wrestlezone and ‘The Enforcer’ had plenty to talk about regarding this weekend’s main event of AEW Full Gear between Cody and Chris Jericho. When asked about who he thinks will come out the victor, Arn wasn’t about to venture a guess but he did help set the table as far as strategy and what’s at stake for the two stars, particularly Jericho who he thinks is at the top of his game of getting under people’s skin.
“Well the one thing about Jericho it’s so obvious to people that they can look away from their emotion for just a second and see what he’s doing. He’s gotten really good at being a horse’s ass and he’s really jerking everybody’s chain and there’s not a person walking the hallway back there,” Anderson said, “including all of his own partners who really don’t dislike the guy. I’m sure they do and he’s become very unlikable which is gonna be his advantage because if you get a guy to blow up and lose his cool then that guy loses his talent.”
“I think Jericho is going to do everything he can to upset Cody, get him off his game, and get him to forget what his goal is and that still to win the championship and if he can do that, it’s going to be a long night for Cody. If Cody will keep his cool, stick to his guns, stick to his abilities because right now he’s never been better.” Anderson said. “He’s more mature. he’s more calm, he’s kind of fighting, I would say for his company and the fact that he’s trying to make a statement that AEW is as good as anything out there and I perfectly agree with him that it is. It’s as good as a product as there is out right now. So I’m interested to see how it’s going to go. I really wouldn’t bet my house on either guy, but it’s going to be fun to watch I can tell ya that.”
