• 4 Horsemen Member Says His Professional Wrestling Career Is Over
During a recent interview with the ‘Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling’, legendary NWA/WWF Wrestler Tully Blanchard confirmed that he is now gone from Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling & Ring of Honor, and isn’t under contract any longer.
Here’s what Tully had to say:
“I’m no longer with AEW or Ring of Honor or any subsidiaries thereof. That sounded pretty legal, didn’t it?
I would imagine that my wrestling career is probably over other than doing autograph shows and things like we did in Nashville. I don’t know how many retirement matches, last matches, Ric Flair can have.
It was a little more complex than that, but my contract is up and I’m gone.”
Tully Blanchard used to be an original member of the 4 Horsemen from 1985 until he and Arn Anderson left for the World Wrestling Federation in September 1988.
When Tully wanted to return to the renamed World Championship Wrestling in November 1989, the WWF tested him for drugs and the result came in positive for cocaine, which is why WCW President Jim Herd went back on his word and didn’t sign Blanchard to a contract, which resulted in Arn returning on his own.
