Arn and Ole are NOT brothers, or cousins...but they ARE related.
The Andersons were already an established tag team, originally consisting of Lars and Gene Anderson. Though not related in real life, they were billed as brothers. Eventually, Lars retired and his spot was taken by Ole Anderson. Then Lars retired, and Ole was left on his own.
