Bruce Prichard: Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard Could’ve Headlined Individually, But They Became Bland As A Team

One of the legendary factions in all of sports entertainment is the Four Horsemen. Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard were in the stable together, and they were a fairly formidable tag team in the late 80s. Arn and Tully also worked together as the Brain Busters in WWF/E, but they weren’t exactly an exciting team, according to Bruce Prichard.

During a recent episode of his Something To Wrestle podcast, Prichard claimed that the team of Anderson and Blanchard was a bit bland. He enjoyed their work from an individual standpoint, but felt they were lacking in some way as a unit.

“I think that Tully was an excellent wrestler, I think that Arn was an excellent wrestler. I think that when they got together as a tag team that they became very bland,” Bruce Prichard said.

“When the Horsemen had all the individual titles, I thought that was cool, because you had guys that had individual programs,” Prichard said. “Arn could stand on his own, Tully could stand on his own. I think when Tully and Arn were together as a tag team that they were out there to get beat. Big fan of them, working-wise, in the ring. Individually. Look, they were a great a tag team, I just thought they were boring at times… individually, either one of them could’ve headlined. As a tag team, they couldn’t.” [H/T WrestlingInc.]

Arn and Tully worked together in Jim Crockett Promotions and WWF, winning a combined five tag team titles. They won the NWA/WCW World Tag Team Championship four times, and had a 76-day WWF tag title reign in the summer of 1989.

The pair’s last match as a team was a loss to Demolition on a November 5, 1989 live event.
