The Four Horsemen were formed way back in 1985 in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. With the original line up consisting of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Ole Anderson, Tully Blanchard and manager JJ Dillon. Though Flair and Arn have been ever-present, there have been many different iterations of the Four Horsemen stable over the years. With superstars such as Lex Lugar, Sting and Barry Windham all being part of the group at one time or another.
It remains to be seen if WWE or Ric Flair attempt to block or counter Arn Anderson in his attempt to trademark the name of one of wrestling’s most successful stables.
