Top 20 Things You Didn't Know About The Four Horsemen

A wrestling stable is a great way to turn guys into stars. Whether the group unites for a common cause or against a common enemy, one thing is certain, there is strength in numbers. Without the legendary Four Horsemen showing the world how a stable of wrestlers should be, we probably would not have factions in the world of wrestling today. The Horsemen set the standard for how a stable should look and act. Right down to the way a group of guys should attack the enemy, which is now refereed to as a "horsemen stomp," when every member of the stable is attacking one guy.

Some of the more notable stables in wrestling history may have never existed if The Four Horsemen had not blazed the trail. Even though they were not officially the first stable, that nod goes to The Fabulous Freebirds, they definitely became the benchmark that all stables since are measured up to. So many stables and factions like the nWo, D-Generation X, Hart Foundation, Evolution, Legacy and so many more owe their very existence to The Horsemen. They showed all these factions how to walk the walk and look the part. They were indeed the prototypical heel faction.

They were brash, they were arrogant, and the fans either loved them or loved to hate them. They were involved in some of the most legendary feuds in wrestling history and gave us some of the most memorable moments in wrestling history. From their feuds with Dusty Rhodes and Magnum TA to the nWo and Eric Bischoff, they sold out arena's around the world.  They broke Dusty Rhodes ankle and hand, they usually held most of the titles and their interviews were usually bragging about their success. So much is known about them that we had to dig deep but we have found the Top 20 things you did not know about the Four Horsemen.

In 2013, a group of mixed martial arts women adopted the name The Four Horsewomen with the blessing of Arn Anderson and "the Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler, and Jessamyn Duke all fight for the UFC. The fourth member of the group, Marina Shafir, fights for Invicta Fighting Championship. The group sat together in the front row and were acknowledged on air when they attended SummerSlam in 2014. Then again they sat in the front row at WrestleMania 31 where Ronda had an in-ring segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

1 1. Parody 

In 1997, Arn Anderson gave an emotional retirement speech in front of a live WCW audience due to doctors ordering him to never wrestle again. The next week, the nWo came out to do a parody of that retirement speech. In a shoot interview with Ric Flair, he stated that Kevin Nash's portrayal of Arn Anderson was insulting and he was upset because Arn's kid was watching it at home. Flair also stated that the part that upset him the most was The Horsemen were never given a chance at a rebuttal. The Four Horsemen were embarrassed on national television and were never allowed to retaliate.
