A few AEW stars have thrown out teases about forming a new 4 Horsemen stable in the company. Ric Flair seems to be here for that idea.
Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Ole Anderson made up the original 4 Horsemen. AEW happens to have 1/2 of those men under their roof. They also have a few younger stars who could fit into that concept quite well.
While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Ric Flair approached the idea of AEW starting a 4 Horsemen group. He’s all for it. If anything, it will make sure that the OG 4 Horsemen brand lives on.
“No, I’d be for it. No matter who does it or how it’s done, it’s attributed to us. To this day, I’ll see Arn and we’ll do a signing now and then and the whole joint walks around with their four fingers up, to this day. If we’re together for a signing, and even if we’re on different sides of the world, the people that come back and forth to get a signature or picture, they’re all doing the same thing,” revealed Flair.”
“But I tell him, just imagine if we had been in the era of marketing? Or if we had been working with WWE who knew and knows how to market? The marketing, in some cases, can make you bigger and better than you are. I don’t like to see that but it does exist. But I’m happy for all the money that everybody makes because they earn it. They’re earning it right now despite the health issues. So, I’m happy to see them all making money for the Four Horsemen or whatever. Guys like Arn and, I hope, myself and Tully and Barry will always have a place. And of course the infamous JJ Dillon [laughs].”
AEW has a lot of plans for the future. A 4 Horsemen stable might be something that they approach down the line. Arn and Tully are likely all for the idea since they work for AEW. It seems that they have Ric Flair’s approval as well. Ole Anderson has yet to comment, but AEW has a thumbs up from 3 of the 4 original members at this point.
