Arn Anderson at the Motor City Comic Con 2016

Arn Anderson has had an interesting wrestling career.  He was "brought" into the "Anderson" family because he bore a resemblance to the Ole Anderson.  He enjoyed success as part of the Minnesota Wrecking Crew.
They started a loose alliance with Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard and JJ Dillon.  Soon, thanks to a fantastic promo by Arn, this group became known as the Four Horsemen.  This group is the benchmark for all wrestling stables.  There have been many attempts to duplicate them, but none will ever match their success and popularity.
Arn never attained the big championship, but he won several smaller titles and many tag team championships.  "The Enorcer" seemed happy in his role.
Cuzz and I met Arn at the Motor City Comic Con 2016.  We were the first people at his booth and he immediately instructed us to "put up the four."  As silly as it might sound, I got chills.  Arn is one of the very best never to have won major heavyweight titles.
Arn was the last of the main Four Horsemen that I have met.  I can now take him off my "Most Wanted" list.  Thank you MCCCC and thanks to Arn, too!
