Sgt. Slaughter Remembers Ole Anderson

WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter recently appeared as a guest on Pro Wrestling Bits and discussed Ole Anderson.

“He was a tremendous talent in the ring, a very good booker also,” said Slaughter.

Slaughter continued, “He was very much a no-nonsense guy. He helped me a lot, too. Once time he decided he wanted me to have a Private (apprentice). I really didn’t want it, but I went ahead and took the guy that he wanted, Jim Nelson, but I had another fellow in mind—Don Kernodle so I ended up being able to create a tag team which they ended up winning the Mid Atlantic Tag Team Championships and neither one of them had ever been past first match status in their careers, but to further on with Don Kernodle, who became the Worlds Heavyweight champion in NWA, that was quite a feat. Ole Anderson trained Don, along with his brother Gene Anderson.”
