Ollie Anderson, 81, member of the Four Horsemen wrestling team, has died

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Ole Anderson, the professional wrestler whose tough, no-nonsense style led him to become a founding member of the iconic group known as The Four Horsemen, has died, WWE said. He was 81 years old.

Anderson's death was revealed Monday by the wrestling organization's website, which described Anderson's in-ring style as stubborn and abrasive in his demeanor.

Anderson gained that reputation early in his career as a tag team champion, alongside partners described as relatives, including Arn Anderson. WWE said they gained notoriety as a tag team known as The Minnesota Wrecking Crew.

The duo later teamed up in the 1980s with Ric Flair and Tully Blanchard to form The Four Horsemen, led by manager JJ Dillon in the NWA wrestling organization. They fought some of wrestling's biggest names, including Dusty Rhodes, the Road Warriors, T.A. Magnum and Sting, who later became a member of the foursome.

WWE said of The Four Horsemen: “The group set a standard of style, attitude and success that inspired every stable that followed.”
