In yet another disturbing sign out of Atlanta, Arn Anderson, one of the company’s most loyal hands, recently was reprimanded and sent home by Eric Bischoff, who held Double A responsible for a segment involving Lex Luger and Buff Bagwell.
Anderson, who typically is handed the toughest matches on TV each week involving the more high-maintenance performers, was in charge of Luger and Bagwell’s match. The two, however, decided to go out and improvise, prompting an angry Bischoff to put the heat on Anderson instead of Luger and Bagwell.
Bischoff cited Anderson’s experience with Horsemen angles, blaming him for not controlling Luger and Bagwell, who received no disciplinary action.
