The talk of reforming the Four Horsemen as a way to promote the DVD released last month never got far because Arn Anderson’s neck and arm atrophy would prevent him from doing anything respectable in the ring. Although he works out with wrestlers in the ring sometimes, it would be obvious to fans he wasn’t able to fully function because of his hand, and Arn wouldn’t want to be remembered that way. The Horsemen idea never included anyone new, and would have just been Ric Flair, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, and Arn for a short-term reunion of some type.
Overall, the European tour was a disappointment with some shows drawing in the 1,200 range. The idea of running full-time territories around the world grows less and less likely with each passing day. Most parts of the UK would not be able to sustain a full-time touring WWE group, Japan is certainly out of the question since it’s not supporting any full-time wrestling groups, Mexico business was way down this tour, and while it was not a disaster it’s pretty clear that with what the WWE stars make and what the ticket prices are for rare WWE shows, a regular trip down there would be a money loser.
