12 Insane Real Life Stories Of The Four Horsemen
Written by Ana Krneta
5/ Ric Flair had no trouble getting ladies, let’s make that very clear. As the head of The Four Horsemen, and one of the biggest wrestlers of his time, he had more trouble keeping them off of him rather than on. He opened up to ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine about the time he brought Andre the Giant out with him and how he ended up being the best wingman he has ever had. All the ladies could not get enough of Andre which allowed Ric to be able to focus on one person.
6/ The year was 1975 and Ric Flair was flying to an event along with David Crockett, Tim Woods, Bobby Bruggers, and Johnny Valentine. Wrestlers tend to be bigger than your average guy, and so the pilot had to offload fuel in order to counter the weight of the wrestlers he had on his plane. Would you know it, this action caused them to run out of fuel in the middle of their flight. It’s almost like all the fuel that is put in the tank at the beginning of the trip is meant to last the entire trip. The went down, and only the pilot tragically ended up dying. Ric Flair came out of it with a broken back and though he would never be able to get into the ring again but, as we know, that fear did not come to fruition.
7/ Everyone knows the storylines in wrestling are fake, but the physical aspect of it is very real and wrestlers sacrifice a lot for a career in the ring. Manny Fernandez was a Superstar in his day, and had one of the most historic feuds in wrestling with Arn Anderson. There was no love lost between him and The Four Horsemen in real life either. He still ended up saving one of their lives though, Tully Blanchard. He told ‘Wresting INC radio’ about the incident, saying, ‘I got stabbed eight times trying to save his life in San Antonio, Texas. When this incident happened, it wasn’t me that started the incident, it was him (Tully) and I came to the rescue. It wasn’t him that took the stabbing, it was me.’
8/ Ric Flair taught Chris Jericho a very important skill. When CJ was making his way up the WWE ladder and learning how to wrestle, do promos, and keep up with his workouts he was also taught how to gargle whiskey. Now, if you were to really gargle whiskey it would burn and cut your throat and you would almost certainly end up vomiting and crying. Well Ric taught CJ how to just look like he was gargling the whiskey. The secret is all in the positioning. You have to stand in a way that looks like you are gargling whiskey from one angle, while you actually spit it out the side of your mouth on the other side.
