Double A. The Enforcer. Both names are synonymous with another name… Arn Anderson. During the 80's, while never attaining a singles World Heavyweight title, while never equaling the apex set by wrestlers like Harley Race, Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair, Arn Anderson managed to become one of the most loved pro wrestlers in the business. He wasn't particularly big, in a sport that was slowly evolving to the taller, more muscular athletes. He didn't wear a flashy costume, sport face paint or wear a strange hairstyle. Rather, Arn Anderson was about as normal looking as a wrestler could get. And that fact, along with his tremendous wrestling ability, and outstanding mic skills are what has made Arn Anderson what he is. When he steps in the ring, his opponent knows he means business.

Arn broke into the wrestling business with the help of Sylvester Ritter, also known as The Junkyard Dog. Arn started wrestling under his real name, Marty Lunde, around 1982. In his first match, which took place in Florida, Arn was defeated by Bullet Bob Armstrong.

In 1983, Arn moved to Louisiana where he met and began teaming with Matt Borne. This heel tag team moved on to the NWA Georgia territory where they were managed by Paul Ellering (who later went on dump Arn and Borne for the winners of the National Tag Team tournament, The Road Warriors). Arn ended up doing a face turn on Borne and began teaming with his "uncle" Ole Anderson and Wildfire Tommy Rich, battling Paul Ellering and his stable of wrestlers. 

Later that year, Arn left the Georgia region and headed to the NWA Southeastern territory where he wrestled under a mask as Super Olympia, along with his partner, Mr. Olympia (Jerry Stubbs). Eventually, Anderson and Stubbs lost their masks, but continued to wrestle as a team throughout 1984, winning and losing the Southeast Tag Titles several times. As with any good team, they eventually feuded, when Arn turned heel on Stubbs. He joined Ron Fuller's Stud Stable and it was with this group that Arn won another tag title, this time with fellow Stud Stable member, Pat Rose. However, the reign was short as Rose and Anderson lost the titles back to the wrestlers they won them from. It was at this point that Arn embarked on the next phase of his career as he left the Southeastern area and headed for the Mid-Atlantic region. It was 1985.  More...
