OLE ANDERSON: The Time a Worker Put a Gun to the Back of His Head

Ole Anderson, known for his tough tactics

Ole Anderson- The grouchiest man in the business


“When one of the guys wanted time off because his grandmother had died, I started to grill him. ‘What are you going to do – resurrect her from the dead?’

He stammered. He didn’t know how to respond.

‘If you wanna work, then let’s get to work,’ I suggested.

As I walked away, the guy pulled a gun out of his bag and aimed it at the back of my head. I didn’t know about it until Stan Hansen and some of the guys told me about it later. I asked Stan, ‘Why didn’t somebody warn me?’

He just grinned and said, ‘We wanted to see if he would actually shoot you…'”
