Wrestling By The Numbers: Martin ‘Arn Anderson’ Lunde

World Wrestling Entertainment has announced that joining the 2012 WWE Hall Of Fame Class will be Martin ‘Arn Anderson’ Lunde as apart of the legendary Four Horsemen stable. The 53-year-old Rome Georgia native started his 15-year in-ring career back in 1982 after being trained by Ted Allen. He first garnered attention for himself by competing in NWA: Southeastern Championship Wrestling and later Mid South Wrestling. Jim Crockett Jr. then brought Lunde to NWA: Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling after a recommendation from Mid South Promoter Bill Watts. During his initial 4-year stint with the company, Lunde made a name for himself as a good worker and tag-team specialist originally with Ole Anderson. He then became a member of The Four Horsemen stable that were the face of the company during the mid to late 1980′s. After forming a tag-team with Tully Blanchard the two left Jim Crockett Promotions for the World Wrestling Federation but ended up returning after only a year away.

Once returning to World Championship Wrestling Anderson continued being a main stay in the company’s tag-team division. He formed memorable pairings with both Larry Zybszko and Bobby Eaton before The Four Horsemen stable was revived in 1993. Anderson’s in-ring career came to an end in 1997 after he was forced to retire from the ring with extensive neck and upper back injuries. Anderson continued working for the company as an on-screen manager and a behind the scenes road agent / producer until the company folded in 2001. He then re-joined World Wrestling Entertainment where he’s been a road agent / producer for the past 10-years and has done brief work as a commentator and manager. Arn Anderson joins Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham and manager J.J. Dillon representing The Four Horsemen stable being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
