Anderson made his ring debut in 1982, wrestling in various independent companies across the USA. The following year he joined the NWA-affiliated Southeastern Championship Wrestling, and shortly after became a member of Ron Fuller’s Stud Stable. In 1984 he won the NWA Southeastern Tag Team Championship four times, and his popularity began to grow. Later that year, he briefly wrestled for Mid-South Wrestling, and then joined the NWA-affiliated Jim Crockett Promotions, beginning to work with Ole Anderson and soon adopting the ring name of Arn Anderson. In 1985 the team won the NWA National Tag Team Championship, making several successful title defenses later that year. His net worth was at its start.
Soon after, common enemies brought an alliance with Tully Blanchard and Ric Flair, adopting the moniker The Four Horsemen, with James J. Dillon serving as their manager. The group went on to become one of the greatest stables in sports-entertainment history, working in feuds against some of the major names in the sport, such as Dusty Rhodes, Magnum T.A. and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. Apart from the stable, Anderson was successful as a solo wrestler too, winning the vacant NWA Television Championship in 1986, eventually losing it to Dusty Rhodes later that year. All added to his wealth.
The following year he and Blanchard began competing regularly as a tag team, quickly becoming two of the biggest stars in Crockett’s company. However, despite their success and huge revenues they brought to the company, in 1988 they decided to end their contract with Crockett, being dissatisfied with their payments. The same year, Anderson, along with Blanchard, joined the World Wrestling Federation, becoming a tag team with Bobby “The Brain” Heenan as their manager, and taking up the name Brain Busters. In 1989 they won the WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating Demolition, and although Demolition regained the title shortly afterwards, Brain Busters remained one of the major names in the WWF’s tag team division.
Later in 1989, Anderson returned to WCW and helped to reform the Four Horsemen. The following year he won the NWA World Television Championship, losing it later that year but regaining it in 1991. Not long after he lost the title and entered the tag team ranks of WCW, teaming up with Larry Zbyszko and going under the name of The Enforcers. They went on to win the WCW World Tag Team Championship, but quickly lost the title, and split-up. Anderson then teamed up with Beautiful Bobby Eaton, becoming part of The Dangerous Alliance stable; the team won the WCW World Tag Team Championship in early 1992, but lost it several months later.
A year later, Ole Anderson, Rick Flair and Anderson himself reformed The Four Horsemen, with Paul Roma as their fourth member. In mid-1993 Anderson and Roma won the WCW World Tag Team Championship. However, the team soon split-up.
In 1994 Anderson became a part of Stud Stable again, and won the World Television Championship the following year. Several months later he lost it, and became less and less active in the ring; in 1997 he announced his retirement. He still went on to enter several tag matches after that, however, but with a limited physical involvement, due to neck and back injuries.
In 1998 he once again formed Horsemen with Flair, who became the President of WCW and won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, with Anderson serving as his right hand. When the World Wrestling Federation acquired WCW in 2001, Anderson’s career ended.
Following his retirement, he became a road agent for WWF, which was later renamed to World Wrestling Entertainment. He later made several appearances on “Raw”, and more recently on “Smackdown Live”.
In his private life, Anderson has been married to Erin D. Lunde since 1984, and the couple has two children.
