In twenty three years as a wrestling fan I never thought I'd be able to watch a live match involving Tully Blanchard, but on this week's edition of Dynamite I was proven wrong. For the first time in thirty years Tully Blanchard entered the ring and not just that entered the ring with JJ Dillon at ringside. During his prime JJ Dillon was at one point his manager replacing Baby Doll who had been Tully's second for a time prior to the formation of the Four Horsemen. This pairing though takes us back to a golden age of wrestling when the Horsemen were running the world of wrestling with four of the best in ring competitors normally making up the group.
It has taken sometime, but Tully has finally found his footing as a manager in AEW instead of someone without a direction he had been early on with the promotion. After his partnership with Shawn Spears went cold it became clear he needed something new and found that with FTR. In my opinion, it's like a perfect match as it allows FTR to avoid speaking and it gives someone to get them heat. Also it allows them to stick out from the pack and not be looked at as the same when compared to other teams.
At this time, I don't know if JJ Dillon will be sticking around or not it is doubtful and more likely that JJ was there for one night and may return here and there. With Shawn now a part of the group there is officially four of them, but remember back in the day there were four wrestlers and JJ made five. It will be interesting to see if they include another wrestler within the stable or if they keep it with Tully, FTR, and Shawn Spears. Odds are for the time being at least they will keep it with just the four of them as it worth noting how long it took for them to add Spears not just keep it a trio. It's also worth noting that Arn Anderson was shown doing the old hand motion to Dillon and watching the ring after the match which could be planting the seeds for something in the future between the former Horsemen members.
