Arn Anderson: Miz Had Heat Over WWE WrestleMania 27 Spot
Miz’s main event slot upset some of the boys in the back
WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson sat down with Conrad Thompson for the latest episode of The ARN Podcast recently, where the two talked about WWE Elimination Chamber 2011 - an event where the winner would go on to headline WrestleMania 27.
John Cena eventually won and went on to face WWE Champion the Miz in the Mania main event, but Arn notes many talents backstage were upset over this, including CM Punk:
“I would say there’s a lot of talent at that WrestleMania that were pissed that Miz was in that spot,” Anderson said. “When being in the match with Randy Orton is looked at as being mid-card, that’s pretty friggin’ stout. And I mean at any time and under any circumstances. To look at that as being as less than tells you somethings going on in somebody’s mind.
“There was a lot of animosity around and a lot of people that were trying to get over and move up in position. When Miz was wrestling Cena I just know that there were a lot of guys that felt like they should’ve been in that spot. If you didn’t want to be in that spot, somethings wrong with you. There was some tension here or there.”
