1984 Part II - "I'm Gonna Have Me A Bar-Beee -Que." - (Mr. Olympia)  

 - Mike Calloway

In my opinion the best overall team in Southeastern Wrestling was the combination of Jerry Stubbs and Arn Anderson. These two men may have also had one of the top feuds in the territory as well. Both men were very skilled in the ring whether actually wrestling or brawling and each was very good at getting their story over on the microphone, be it in angles or interviews. To begin the Stubbs - Anderson story, I'll look at a brief history of the two. Jerry Stubbs was the ring veteran of the duo. Jerry began his career in the mid 1970's in the Georgia and Mid Atlantic territories. Stubbs found quick success early competing for the Leroy McGuirk promotion, winning both the Louisiana and Mississippi Heavyweight Championships in that area. Jerry first began wrestling in the Southeastern promotion (Alabama) in 1978 in a tag team with partner Mike Stallings against the team of David Shultz and Eddie Mansfield. Stubbs would return to the area in late 1980, becoming the first man to garner the U.S. Jr. Heavyweight Championship. In 1981, during a program pitted against Stan Lane, Stubbs would begin the most successful gimmick of his career as the masked Mr. Olympia. As Mr. Olympia, Stubbs would compete in the area almost exclusively over the next few years venturing at times as well into the Bill Watts area of Mid South. This was actually a good thing for Stubbs who made his home in Pensacola, Florida. Pensacola was the actual home base for many of the Southeastern wrestlers while working the area, but was only four hours away from the Louisiana/Mississippi territory of Watts. Arn Anderson started out early in his career working a few matches in Southeastern on TV as Marty Lunde on TV matches. Lunde would as well work for Bill Watts in the early 1980's on Mid South TV as Marty Lunde. Arn's first touch with the big time was as a tag team with Matt Borne under the management of Paul Ellering in Georgia Championship Wrestling. It was at this time, Lunde began using the Arn Anderson name. Anderson & Stubbs paths first crossed in Southeastern late 1983. Mr. Olympia had just turned heel in a feud with Robert Fuller. A new competitor had entered the area under a mask as well, calling himself Super Olympia. The two men quickly began a natural program against each other, with Mr. Olympia losing his mask in a match against Super Olympia. Super O would turn heel a few weeks later during a feud with Jacques Rougeau. Super O would begin teaming with former adversary Stubbs against the team of Rougeau and Robert Fuller, eventually losing his mask during the battles with Jacques Rougeau.  More...
