Ric Flair on Ole Anderson

Translation: 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!

Ole Anderson Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we learned that Ole Anderson has passed away. He was an important part of the core group of main eventers in Mid-Atlantic Wrestling when we became wrestling fans. The Minnesota Wrecking Crew were real to us.

Rest in Peace.
