AEW toyed with the idea of forming a Four Horsemen faction, but they didn’t go through with it. Now The Pinnacle seems to stand in its place.
While speaking to Sports Illustrated, MJF discussed the fact that people compare his faction to the Four Horsemen. There are much worse factions that they can be compared to. MJF listed off the members of his stable and hyped them all while discussing this trend to say that AEW’s new stable is like the Horsemen.
“I wanted to take something that was old and put a modern-day spin on it. It’s incredible to me that we are so talented that we have Wardlow in a Big Bubba Rogers [Big Boss Man] position. He’s gigantic and a freak athlete. FTR is the best tag team in the world. I’m also so excited for the world to see Shawn Spears. He’s never received the proper spotlight, but now people are going to recognize how incredible he is.”
We’ll have to see what’s in the future for the Pinnacle. This will undoubtedly have many of opportunities in the future for great stories. We might even see that Blood & Guts match that AEW had to nix at the beginning of the pandemic.
