Mike Mooneyham of The Post and Courier has a new article online featuring quotes from Arn Anderson. Below are the highlights:

With the original Four Horsemen:

“I feel like I had — and am still having — a successful career. But the highlight of that career would have to be the three years I spent with that group of guys,” says Anderson. “It was a special time. I called it the golden years of the business. Both the WWF and NWA were thriving. Just to be pretty prominently figured into that group of guys is something you can tell your great grandkids about.”

While Anderson believes that the incarnation of Horsemen chosen for induction is probably the strongest, he understands the nostalgic affection for the original crew that included Ole Anderson.

“There’s nothing like the first group. Obviously that’s special.”

Problems between Vince McMahon & Ole Anderson:

“I wasn’t given the details, but I knew of it from way back. I think it’s still true today. Rather than have all that tension on what’s supposed to be a great day, it’s just easier with Barry. From a performance standpoint, I don’t know if anyone’s ever been better than Barry Windham.”

Anderson is quick to credit Ole for much of his success in the business.

“I owe Ole so much — just for allowing me to be an Anderson. Secondly he taught me so much when I was really young ... knowledge that I’ve passed on to other kids about tag-team wrestling. I owe Ole and I respect Ole.”
