Classic factions reborn

The Four Horsemen

Through their various incarnations, The Four Horsemen remain the most influential group of all time. Today’s Horsemen would be made up of Superstars who pride themselves on being the best and have no problem using any means necessary to secure victory. There are four WWE competitors who fit the bill quite well and even draw strong parallels to the group’s WWE Hall of Fame incarnation of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham and manager JJ Dillon.

Historically, The Four Horsemen were the sworn enemies of Dusty Rhodes. If The American Dream’s son, Cody Rhodes, joined the faction’s ranks it would only serve to separate himself from his father’s shadow. Rhodes’ arrogance and in-ring abilities make him the perfect candidate for a revitalized Four Horsemen.

The group needs an enforcer — a hardened competitor who refuses to pull any punches. The bare-knuckle brawler himself, Wade Barrett, has every characteristic required of being one of the toughest Horsemen since Ole Anderson.

A Horseman must excel at his craft and not only strive to be the best, but believe that he is the best. Former World Champions Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan possess these essential characteristics and are regarded among the elite wrestlers in the world.

Individually, these four competitors are formidable in their own right, but together — under the guidance of original Horseman Arn Anderson — they can undoubtedly be limousine-ridin’, jet-flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ sons of guns.
