Arn Anderson garnered a lot of attention with his Glock promo, but it was just a metaphor. That promo still woke Cody Rhodes up and it also spawned a ton of memes.
In case you need a refresher, Arn Anderson said to Cody Rhodes, “You pull up to a red light, a man jerks the car door open and says, ‘Out of the car, I’m taking your car.’ You say, ‘Okay, take it. Just don’t hurt me.’ You know what I do? I pull out the Glock, put it on his forehead, and spill his brains all over the concrete. I’m Arn Anderson! And all that implies, and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna coach a loser.”
ARN featured a conversation with the legend where he admitted to never really carrying a gun in his life. That being said, he still doesn’t suggest trying to steal his car.
“Okay. That was meant to be a metaphor and to let everyone know that I am through being a victim, I’ve had enough, and I am not a victim, I am a predator. I just used a very extreme example. I don’t carry a gun. I have never carried a gun on my person. So it was meant to be what it was and I think the shock value was the spilling of the brains, painting the sidewalk with the brains, I think is probably what had everybody go, ‘Whoa! Okay. Alright.’ 99% of everything I read or saw understood. Don’t take it literally. People got it.”
“Yeah, but I would still suggest you don’t jerk my [car] door open and say you’re going to take my car. Let’s just say guns are not part of my everyday thought process or life, but I do agree that sometimes you have to protect what’s yours. A car door getting opened with some torque behind it right on your kneecaps, that’ll probably change your afternoon around a little bit.”
We’ll have to see if Arn Anderson has another Glock promo in him. If anything, it certainly made fans pay extra attention whenever he grabs the microphone. That promo also did the trick in getting Cody Rhodes’ attention as he prepared for his next steps in AEW.
