Ole Anderson drifted away from JCP in May of 1987 as his feud with the Four Horsemen ran its course (this is when he teamed with Tim Horner for a couple of weeks) bar a July 11, 1987 card in Greensboro when the promotion had a multicard night and needed extra guys. Out of nowhere, Ole ran in to save the newly babyface turned Lex Luger from the Horsemen at the 12/25/87 Omni show. JCP went right back to the Omni on 1/1/88 with Ole and Lex vs. Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson. The same two teams met at the 1/31/88 Omni card. They met again on 2/14/88 in a cage match at the Omni. Then on 2/28/88 it was Ole, Luger, and Dusty Rhodes vs. Ric Flair, Tully, and Arn at the Omni. During February and March they took Ole and partners vs. combinations of Four Horsemen members to a few JCP core towns. Ole made a WTBS studio appearance or two to cut promos for the Omni cards. He didn't wrestle in squashes and didn't work the syndicated tapings. It was really just a local Atlanta thing that got some national exposure via the Superstation. It was largely forgotten or unnoticed at the time.
