The professional wrestling industry is in sorrow as it says goodbye to a great icon. Ole Anderson, the founder of the famed Four Horsemen stable and an icon in the territorial era, died at the age of 81.
Born Alan Rogowski, Ole Anderson's influence on the wrestling world cannot be emphasized. Anderson, who was trained by WWE Hall of Famer Verne Gagne, was a highly successful and renowned tag team wrestler. His most notable collaboration was with Arn Anderson on The Minnesota Wrecking Crew. Together, they wrecked havoc in the ring, making a lasting impression on fans across the world.

The Four Horsemen Legacy

When Ole Anderson joined forces with Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, and manager J.J. Dillon, wrestling history was forever changed. This powerful trio founded the renowned stable referred to as The Four Horsemen. Their hard-nosed approach, gruff demeanour, and unwavering attitude set a precedent for every stable that followed.
During their notable reign, The Four Horsemen clashed with wrestling legends including Dusty Rhodes, The Rock 'N Roll Express, and The Road Warriors. Their clashes were enormous, their rivalry intense, and their legacy enduring.
The Horsemen were one of the most iconic factions in professional wrestling history, first in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and then in World Championship Wrestling. Ric Flair wrote, “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!”
Ricky Morton, a former wrestler, posted as well to Instagram. 'As the wrestling community reflects on his contributions, we honour the man who helped define an era and left an indelible mark on the sport we all love.'
