We are saddened to report that WCW Hall of Famer and 4 Horsemen member Ole Anderson has passed away at the age of 81.

Ole’s impact on professional wrestling is undeniable. He was a key figure in the formation of the legendary Four Horsemen faction, alongside Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and JJ Dillon.

Over a career spanning more than two decades, Ole claimed NWA titles in various promotions, establishing himself as a formidable presence in the sport.

In addition to his accomplishments as a wrestler, Ole also left a mark behind the scenes. He served as a booker for prestigious promotions like Georgia Championship Wrestling and Jim Crockett Promotions.

His influence extended beyond the ring, as demonstrated by his insightful book, “Inside Out: How Corporate America Destroyed Professional Wrestling,” published in 2003.

Ricky Morton of The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express broke the news of Ole’s death. Here’s what he wrote:

“Rest in Paradise, Ole Anderson.

You taught me so much in professional wrestling. You were tough as nails.

You will be missed, my friend.”

Ric Flair tweeted the following about Ole’s death:

“I Am Forever Thankful To Ole And Gene For Bringing Me In To Crockett Promotions As A Cousin. It Launched My Career. I Will Be Grateful Forever For You Giving Me The Opportunity To Become Who I Am Today. We Didn’t Always Agree With Each Other, But The Honest To God Truth Is You & Gene Started Me. Rest In Peace My Friend!”

Tommy Dreamer tweeted:

“I watched him wrestle thousands of times

He was great at his job

Heel or babyface

RIP Ole Anderson”
