• Tag Team Legend Says AEW Should Do A 4 Horsemen Reunion
On an episode of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley suggested that Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling should do a 4 Horsemen reunion, now that Ric Flair has left WWE.
Flair’s future son-in-law, Andrade, is currently working there, so The Nature Boy could actually end up joining AEW along the way.
When it comes to Barry Windham, the belief is that he would also be open to joining the promotion, considering that his nephew Bray Wyatt was released from his WWE contract (and could possibly end up in AEW as well).
With Flair & Windham coming in and Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard already working there as managers, they would get the NWA 1988 version of the Horsemen, the exact version that made it into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
Here’s what Bubba Ray said about the situation:
“The obvious question always comes up when someone gets released from the WWE, immediately we start talking about, ‘Wow, what if he went to AEW?’ I’m not talking about Ric Flair in AEW as a performer, although Ric could probably still go out there and pull off another great segment, like he did with Jay Lethal in TNA and entertain the hell out of us.
And how’s this, if you want to talk about it from a creative point of view – we know that Tony Khan is a huge fan of pro wrestling, of old school pro wrestling. You bring in Flair, now you have Flair, Arn (Anderson), and Tully (Blanchard) on your roster, you have three quarters of the original Horsemen.”
