He left the WWE at the end of 1987 to do the bowling alley thing, that is correct.
Came back in 1990 for WCW to be with Sting, JYD and the Steiners. Was there maybe six months if that, and left to wrestle for indy feds until he got with the UWF that Herb Abrams was starting up. He was there for 1991, and a bit of 1992 I wanna say.
In 1992 when Jim Cornette started up Smoky Mountain Wrestling, he had Orndorff wrestle there. As a matter of fact, the finals were Orndorff vs. Brian Lee for the SMW Title, with Lee winning it.
Then he got the gig with WCW in late 1992 and was with WCW until it ended in 2001. Of course he retired in late 1995 from active competition and was a back stage dude and trainer for WCW then.

His atrophy ruined his career. I saw him for Hogans 50th(or 60th birthday party on RAW in Portland a couple years ago) he had a bald head and huge mustache. His arm looks like a 14 year old who lifts a little.
The last time I saw him wrestle was in wCw as an agent, and his atrophy was very evident then.
