Arn Anderson Set To Leave AEW

Arn Anderson to leave AEW

Arn Anderson has announced on his ARN podcast that he will be exiting All Elite Wrestling at the end of May upon the expiry of his contract. 

"The limited time that I have left I want to spend with Brock, because I think Brock has aptitude and attitude and I think he will be a big player for somebody. I just got to get him some experience and that's where I'm gonna devote my time... and if he comes along like I think and hope he will, it will be sooner than later. So I just wanted to say thank you to Tony. I just want to say thank you. I appreciate everything. And that goes to everybody that works there. All my friends, Tony Schiavone, JR, all those guys, all the talent. Dean [Malenko], Billy Gunn, all that crew. Jerry [Lynn], everybody was great. So I just want to say thank you, and see you down the road," Anderson said.

Brock Anderson was previously a part of All Elite Wrestling but he and the promotion parted ways in late 2023. 

Arn Anderson made his AEW debut at All Out 2019, helping Cody Rhodes defeat Shawn Spears. Anderson then signed with AEW at the end of 2019, serving as Cody Rhodes' on-screen head coach until the American Nightmare departed AEW in February 2022. Anderson was a popular personality on AEW TV, particularly after his 'Glock Anderson' promo where Arn said he would pull out a Glock and shoot a man if they tried to steal his car, while Rhodes would allow the carjacker to obtain his vehicle. 

Following Cody's exit, Arn Anderson would continue to manage his son Brock and Arn would have a brief partnership with Wardlow in 2023. Arn primarily focused on his backstage role as a producer over the past several months. 

Two other talents who have departed AEW in recent days include Jake Hager and Mark Henry
