AEW is all about paying tribute to pro wrestling’s past. They are also breaking new ground for the future. A new take on the 4 Horsemen could really shake things up.
The idea has been breached in the past about forming a new 4 Horsemen in AEW. They have two of the original 4 Horsemen on their payroll already. The idea of Cody leading a stable with FTR and Shawn Spears seems more likely than ever.
While speaking to Talk Sport, Cody opened up about the idea of forming the 4 Horsemen in AEW. They might play with a different name because he said to call them the Horsemen seems “ambitious” and “braggadocios.” It seems like this idea is just about ready to see the light of day. All they need to do is try it out and see how things work.
“Certain organic things happen on planet wrestling that you don’t plant the seeds for. No one has planted [New Four Horseman] seeds, really. Maybe a few baby seeds have grown into this speculation about a four person group and then people have mentioned the Four Horseman.”
“I don’t think you can ever do the Four Horseman; that’s ambitious, braggadocios and, very likely, you’d have the most uphill battle ever.”
“You’re talking about wrestlers of the caliber of Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, the Minnesota Wrecking Crew and whatever creations of the Horseman you’re looking at, but those guys bell-to-bell and in real life, on the microphone, just the total packages. Total packages as a unit, too. Just so special and that’s why it lives on today.”
“I think in this case, I love flirting with some of the concepts that were out there because my dad and my family was always the antithesis of the Four Horseman.”
“Their biggest rival was my father. And now, one of his biggest rivals is genuinely one of my closest confidants and coaches and it’s really a different career than I had envisioned.”
“But I love having Double A there and I know Arn has had some conversations with Tony Khan and FTR and I know [Shawn] Spears has had some conversations with FTR.”
“There’s this kind of lingering situation here, but really the only way you’d ever know if something like that would work is you got to get in there and touch one another and wrestle, wrestle on the same team. Maybe even against each other. That’s really the only way to know.”
“So I’m curious to see like everybody – even though my name is all over it – I’m curious to see where that goes.”
Ric Flair even gave his nod of approval concerning AEW forming a new 4 Horsemen stable. This seems like an idea that might actually happen, and they’re making no secret about things either.
