 Review of the Four Horsemen DVD - Associated Content
The Four Horsemen is quite simply the best documentary the WWE has ever done and that's saying a lot because I love the ECW, Monday Night Wars, and Bret Hart documentaries.
First the documentary tells about how the members of the Four Horsemen met and how they formed, Ric Flair was brought in as a family member of the Andersons, and Tully Blanchard basically tagged with them just as a random tag team and it worked well.
The Four Horsemen documentary is mostly told by Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson.

This alliance was the beginning of the formation of the Four Horsemen, perhaps the greatest faction ever assembled in professional wrestling.
One of the key moments in the formation of the Horsemen was a cage match between Ric Flair and Nikita Koloff.

 Can the Horsemen survive in WWE? - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
The thought of a new Four Horsemen is exciting, especially for long-time advocates of the wrestling-oriented group and WWE fans that haven't been enthralled lately with an inconsistent product centered around 40- and 50-something superstars.
The Four Horsemen is not a conceptual idea like the nWo, where wearing a fl-and-white T-shirt takes precedents over what happens inside the ring.
The Horsemen's legacy is built on tough, cunning wrestlers, unity and the ability to consistently win matches and annihilate opponents because of the sheer numbers involved.
