ABC4 was part of the annual Sons of Thunder Biker Day at Hopewell Baptist Church. Brad Anderson sits on a gorgeous Honda Shadow, his father's trademark maroon and gold wrestling boots hang from the front, and the Anderson Brothers ring jacket draped across the back. We are proud to call the members of the Sons of Thunder Motorcycle Ministry our new friends.

Brad's mother Edie (the wife of the late Gene Anderson) is a member of Hopewell Church.

 

 

FOUR FIVE TEAMS COMPETE IN THE

FINAL EVENT OF ABC4

In a departure from previous ABC events, tag teams competed in qualifying matches at EWA wrestling events in the Carolinas and Virginia to select divisional winners to advance to ABC4. See all the results here.

 

Gene and Ole Anderson were one of the greatest tag teams in wrestling history and took tag team wrestling to new levels during their NWA World tag team title reigns in the 1970s.
