Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
One of the first, and coolest, factions in sports-entertainment was the Four Horsemen. This stable was a powerful group that ran roughshod over WCW and lasted for the better part of a decade with its various members, including 16-time World Champion Ric Flair. The constant among the Four Horsemen, the "Nature Boy" was joined by other members such as Arn Anderson, Ole Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, Sting, Lex Luger, Brian Pillman, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, and more. This release covers the creation of the Horsemen, with interviews from many of the superstars that were part of it, as well as highlights and complete matches.]]>

The GOOD; the always open and honest dialog from Ric Flair. Even after reading his book, I loved hearing him articulate his true feelings about what happened to WCW, and seeing his pain, hurt, animosity, and happiness, especially when he talks about the partying/lifestyle aspect of the Horsemen, very refreshing as always.
The PROMOS; is there any doubt that the original Four Horsemen wrote the book on promo cutting??? Every promo they show, clip or complete is worth watching again and again. I especially enjoyed the cut where Tully acknowledged the Horsemen fans...something you would never expect a villain to do!! The passion of Double A in his words...Ric said it all, the guy can talk, I believe Arn was second only to Ric as a promo cutter. The cool, sinister matter of fact approach Ole had most of the time, loved it even in the 70's with he and Gene. Tully...what can be said...the ultimate antagonist, always saying just enough to piss you off!!! J.J., cool calm, diginified, always a pleasure to listen to. And of course, the Champ...you never knew which Nature Boy was going to show up in a promo...to say he was and is a chameleon on the mic is an understatement. He is the greatest promo cutter in the sport's history.
Seeing Tully, J J, and Barry Windham open up. I actually learned things I did not know in listening to them, not wanting to spoil things, I respect and admire Tully even more now.Read more ›
The documentary starts on Ric Flair helping Arn Anderson break into the NWA with his resemblance to Ole Anderson forming the Minnesota Wrecking Crew. The real story behind the Anderson's "family ties" with Flair is discovered along with quick profiles on Flair & Tully Blanchard before the story of how all 4 men united against Magnum T.A. & Dusty Rhodes is told. How J.J. Dillion was factored into the equation, the story behind the "4 Horsemen" name and the impact they had as a group is also chronicled. Their feud with Dusty Rhodes is discussed including hearing the story behind the Horsemen attacking Dusty Rhodes in a parking lot & how that resulted in fans demanding that they would be brought up on police charges. The "high roller" lifestyle that the Horsemen lived & talked about on promos is highlighted before moving on the story of behind Lex Luger replacing Ole Anderson in the Horsemen. The funniest part of the documentary is next when Ric & Dillion talk about the Precious angle where Ric Flair won a date with her & how they were building it up until Ronnie Garvin (dressed like a woman) ruined the whole thing.Read more ›
As for the bio itself, it was great but you can get some negative vibes at times (especially when discussing Ole Anderson, Paul Roma, former WCW Executive Vice President Jim Herd and Eric Bischoff)! I know some fans would've liked to have heard from other former members like Lex Luger, Sting or Ole Anderson but you have to remember something here. Sting currently works for TNA (at the time that I am writing this) so there was no way he was going to be on this project and neither Lex nor Ole are on good terms with WWE. Plus, with the way Ole bashed Ric recently in his own autobiography, I doubt they would've wanted him on the project anyway as a lot of people have grudges against him. Still, I would've rather heard from Ole than ROMA! That guy is VERY DELUSIONAL! Even at near 60, Flair can still work a better match than Paul Roma in his prime! I'll take a 100 year old Flair over Roma any day! You got to hear the comments. This guy is on crack!
As it was, the bio was great as they discussed the different groups and how a lot the changes were made more for political reasons rather than good business sense. They also said that some changes were made by non-wrestling officials (which I tend to believe myself). Overall, just a great trip down memory lane. To paraphrase Jim Ross' words, "WITHOUT THE HORSEMEN, THERE WOULD'VE BEEN NO DX, NO DANGEROUS ALLIANCE AND THERE DAMN SURE WOULD'VE BEEN NO NWO!" Get this to see the rise and fall of the "symbol of excellence.Read more ›
