That’s quite the honor. One of the most commonly used ideas in wrestling is a stable. Wrestlers can be easily grouped together into a team, allowing them to wrestle and work together at an easier pace. There have been hundreds of stables over the years but one of them is viewed as the strongest of them all. That would be the Four Horsemen, which has been the gold standard for a long time now. They haven’t been around for a long time, but what if they were again?
Originally formed back in 1986, the Four Horsemen are considered the greatest stable of all time. With so many legendary members of their lineup, there are always going to be people who wonder about a modern version of the team. The Horsemen have had a formula to most of their incarnations and one of the only constants has been thinking about a modern incarnation as well.
The Horsemen were great back in their day. Check out one of their most famous nights:
During this weekend’s WrestleCade event, Arn Anderson, one of the longtime members of the Four Horsemen, was asked who he would include in a modern version of the team. Including himself as the JJ Dillon style manager of the team, Anderson selected Cody, the Revival and Braun Strowman as his team. Cody responded to the choices on Twitter and seemed flattered by the inclusion.

And then, one of the best ever. Check out one of the best WCW moments of all time, with the Horsemen front and center:
Opinion: That’s a heck of a lineup and I could see it working well enough. Strowman might not quite fit in the motif of the Horsemen, but ht more than fits as an enforcer. Cody as the leader would work out well, though he might not be strong enough of a promo. All of that being said, this is coming from Anderson and other than Ric Flair himself, there is no one more qualified to make these choices.
Do you like Anderson’s list? Who would be in your lineup? Let us know in the comments below.
