Back in October, it was revealed that Arn Anderson was trying to get the rights to the name of a legendary faction that he was part of.
The legendary pro wrestler applied to trademark The Four Horsemen with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) under his real name of Marty Lunde on September 27th.
Ric Flair, Anderson, Ole Anderson, and Tully Blanchard were the original members of the group. Alongside manager JJ Dillion, they became a top faction in Jim Crockett Promotions and later WCW.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Anderson is dealing with issues while trying to get the rights to the trademark due to Notre Dame University.
It turns out that there was a group of players known as the Four Horsemen on Coach Knute Rockne’s 1924 team. By doing a quick Google search, Harry Stuhldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley, and Elmer Layden made up the football faction.
For those who may not know, the name comes from Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Both Anderson and Blanchard are in AEW as Anderson is serving as the head coach of Cody Rhodes while Blanchard manages Shawn Spears. Regarding the other two members, Flair is in WWE and Ole is retired from the pro wrestling business.
