Arn Anderson would take the place of Gene Anderson in the Minnesota Wrecking Crew and that partnership would eventually give way to the formation of the Four Horsemen with Ric Flair, an in-character cousin of the Andersons, and Tully Blanchard.

Ole Anderson passed away on February 26, 2024, at the age of 81, and Arn Anderson has now released a statement on Ole's passing via his Twitter account.

Each one of us starts dying the moment we are born. Some of us live long fruitful lives, some die too soon. All I have been able to figure out in my 65 years is to treat people how you want to be treated and if they teach you anything, be grateful for that.

Ole Anderson was brutally honest when it came to how he felt about life and wrestling. He gave me the rub of a lifetime, taking Gene’s spot in the Minnesota Wrecking Crew. The 4 Horsemen followed, and we know how that went. He was a mentor to me without meaning to be. I studied and will teach my son some Ole-isms.

To his family and people that loved him, we grieve with you. To those who thought Ole was too ornery to die, 81 is a full life.

RIP Rock
