Nope its always been Ole and Arn or Ole and Gene. But then again the best vids are of him being the grumpy old man yelling at interviewers in shoots. My favorite would be about his book:

interviewer: Mr. Ole what was it like to be the booker of Georgia Championship Wrestling

Ole: Have you read my book...its all there you damn moron! Why didn't you do any research!

interviewer: sir I have read it and in chapter 3 you said.....

Ole rarely did singles matches. Whether teaming with his "brother" Gene or his "cousin" Arn Anderson or Stan Hansen or other members of the Four Horsemen Ole might be the most well-known "tag team specialist" in wrestling history.

Off the top of my head the only Ole Anderson singles matches I can remember happened in the very early 80's when a jobber named Burr-head Jones got squashed on TV by Ole. Next week Jones came back and challenged Ole again, saying the first match was...not so much a "fluke" but that he was better than just getting his butt kicked like that. Ole complimented him on his "guts" and accepted the challenge. Second match was not a squash as Ole let the guy get in lots of offense. Ole won by submission again but Jones looked MUCH better than he did being a ragdoll for Ole in the first match. The fans got into the underdog story and were hoping Jones would pull off the upset. I figured Jones would get some kind of push after this, at least to mid-card, but he disappeared shortly after that.

Ole and Stan Hansen were a feared tag team (between the times when Ole and Gene were The Minnesota Wrecking Crew and before Arn joined Ole). They had a bitter break-up (started when Ole called Hansen "stupid" in an interview Ole did by himself. Gordon Solie kinda warned Ole that calling Hansen "stupid" wasn't a very good idea. Ole scoffed "he's too stupid to know I'm calling him stupid".). They didn't wrestle each other on TV (big stars didn't wrestle each other on TV in those days) but I'm sure they had some singles matches against each other at the Big Arena (non-televised) Shows. I couldn't find any on youtube, though. Damn. I remember Gene returning for a short while to help Ole against Hansen and if I remember right Tommy Rich sided with Hansen against the Andersons. But yeah, Ole didn't do very many singles matches.

Here's one I found. Ole vs Bubba Rogers (The Big Bossman) in a cage match from 1987:
