Dustin talks about the Clash this week and is quickly interrupted by Arn Anderson. Arn is wearing his glasses even though he is in his wrestling gear, which is awesome. Arn tells him to shut up and listen, and tells him that Barry Windham knows how he operates and should have seen that coming, and that Dustin should just walk away. Dustin will do no such thing, and wants Arn in the ring, but Arn tells him nothing in this world is free. Great line, and Dustin closes the segment by promising that Barry will be at the Clash.

Dustin Rhodes still has hope that Barry Windham and him and compete for the tag titles. Arn is wearing his wrestling gear and eye glasses. He’s probably the only guy who can get away with that look. Arn says Dustin will not be using Larry Z and himself as a platform to boost his career.

Dustin is serviceable here and Arn is brilliant with multitudes of career advice for the young Rhodes. Until children reach puberty, they should be seen and not heard, so Dustin needs to shut his mouth and listen. And he needs to not jump on the end of Barry Windham's lightning bolt (it sounds better when Arn says it)--"because the life you save may be your own." Dustin sees that there's no Larry Z around and challenges Arn to step into the ring, but Arn informs him that nothing in the world is free and walks off. At this point they're still hyping Windham as Dustin's (possible) partner at the Clash. I'll be interested to find out at what point Dustin's actual partner was signed. As of early November there was nothing in the Observers about it.

Dustin's finally finding his own voice; he starts out doing his dad, but drops the accent about halfway through and starts to talk as his own man, which is more compelling. Arn's the star of the segment, though; he mixes threats and intimidation with seemingly legitimate, if self-serving, concern for Dustin's career. Dustin, of course, is having none of this and wants Arn in the ring, but Arn wants to wait until he's getting paid for the privilege. Not exactly earth-shattering as far as confrontations go, but a good way to build interest for the tag title match at the Clash.

 

No hint of Steamboat's presence yet, but since Barry's injury was legit and they presumably knew that he wouldn't be wrestling, they could have gone ahead and announced that a mystery partner would team with Dustin a few days ahead of time to build anticipation and interest.

Arn is the man. His mere presence signals a hot promo is about to go down. I wonder when he developed this aura; beginning of the Horsemen run? And agreed on how perfect the glasses work for him. They only add to his menace and signify he's got more brains than anyone else in the promotion making him a very dangerous man.
