[Wrestling] Four Horsemen 2-DVD set due April 10, 2007

"You know what the good thing about being a Horseman is? When somebody yells, 'Hey, champ!' we all turn around."

It's a little light on the matches side of things, but here's what's listed on Highspots, the online retail wrestling store:

- Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard & Ric Flair vs. Pez Whatley & Italian Stallion & Rocky King 6/22/85

-Ric Flair vs. Ricky Morton cage match from Charlotte on 7/5/86

-Dusty Rhodes vs. Tully Blanchard First Blood match Starrcade 86

-Four Horseman vs. Dusty Rhodes & Steve Williams & Lex Luger & Nikita Koloff & Paul Ellering 7/16/88 in a War Games match

-Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard vs. Sting & Nikita Koloff 7/16/88

-Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard vs. Barry Windham & Lex Luger 3/27/88 Clash of Champions

-Arn Anderson vs. Ric Flair 9/17/95 Fall Brawl

There's certainly better stuff that could have been on there, but not too shabby. Coulda been better, coulda been worse, and there's a healthy smidgen of Horsemen stuff already covered in the Flair and Pillman sets, as well as pieces sprinkled on other sets ("Bloodbath" features the Andersons vs. the Rock and Roll Express, the Road Warriors set features a tag title match against Anderson & Blanchard, etc.).

I'm sure the rest of the story will be made up for by interviews with the available Horsemen gang (including Windham & Blanchard). Shame there's still no go on the original War Games, and the Nikita face turn looks to be wholly absent (will probably be covered in the interview section).

Wal-Mart has a tendency to crank out extra disc editions of some WWF home releases, so I'm keeping my eyes open for news of that. And this just might not be the whole match listing, either.
