Brock Anderson may be fairly new to AEW but his family heritage is something that should be recognized. His family and their legacy are one that stretches through many successful decades. He will carry that legacy in AEW, where he competed since 2021.
Brock Anderson: The Family Legacy
Anderson’s father is “the enforcer” Arn Anderson, one of the best tag team wrestlers to ever step into a ring. He made a name for himself by teaming with Tully Blanchard, another wrestler who made his living in tag team wrestling in WCW and WWF. Arn Anderson was as successful as anyone in the business over his lengthy career, yet he never fully gets the respect he deserves as one of the best. Arn won several titles and was constant in his in-ring work. He was a power wrestler but was smooth in his delivery. Arn did not back down, showing up for every match and giving people their money’s worth.
Brock Anderson is a clone of Arn in the best way possible. Yes, Arn is his father, but many father-and-son duos do not manage to have the same success. Will Brock have the same tag team success and win as many titles as his father? Time will tell as he puts in the same effort, dissecting his opponents and showing no mercy. He, too, is smooth in the ring, making his time in the AEW ring well spent.
Brock Anderson has won eight of his last ten matches, with most of them being tag team matches with Brian Pillman Jr. When fans think of success, they think of titles won. However, Anderson may have success by simply winning matches early in his career. Arn Anderson was dominant between the late 1980s and 1990s as a tag team wrestler and was the enforcer of the faction The Four Horsemen. Brock may not win half of the titles that Arn did, but that does not make him anything less of a wrestler. Brock has adapted well and seems to carry his dad’s determination and passion for the sport.
Brock Anderson is in a position to carve himself out a good career in the wrestling business. At only 26 years old, he could very well have the longevity his father did and have the same kind of impact. His pro wrestling career is just beginning. He has time to make a name for himself and win championships. He grew up in a wrestling family and has a great sense of direction. He is extremely talented without high-flying maneuvers and will do quite well for himself.
