However, that was about it.
The team soon became nothing but a pair of jacked-up jobbers, and never did anything memorable again. Although Jim Powers wallowed in the mid-card when they split, Vince McMahon had higher hopes for Paul Roma.
In 1990, Roma turned heel and aligned himself with Hercules, naming themselves Power and Glory. With the managerial services of Slick, the team initially received a sizable push in the tag division, appearing as if a title reign was just around the corner.
Well, at least that it what it seemed—but it never came to fruition. Power and Glory eventually became jacked-up jobbers just like the Young Stallions, and disbanded in a little over year after they formed.
Even with this unimpressive resume, WCW somehow thought that he was a good fit in the most elite group in pro wrestling history, the Four Horsemen. From 1986 to 1993 (and beyond), the Horsemen went through a revolving door of members, with core members Ric Flair and Arn Anderson remaining faithful. At the time, stars such as Lex Luger, Sting, Barry Windham and Sid Vicious catapulted their future championship careers by being members of the faction.
After leaving WCW for WWE, Ric Flair returned in 1993. He began hosting a talk show called A Flair for the Gold, on his quest to once again become World Heavyweight Champion. The Four Horsemen reformed upon his return, but there were only three members (well, two members and the "advisor," Ole Anderson).
On an episode of A Flair for the Gold, Flair announced the newest member of the Four Horsemen—none other than Mr. Young Stallion himself, Paul Roma. The crowd immediately booed Roma, and his promo felt awkward and scripted.
The 1993 incarnation of the Four(ish) Horsemen was by far the worse of the bunch. Paul Roma did not even last a year with the group, and although he did receive marginal success with Paul Orndorff as Pretty Wonderful, his career tanked soon after.
I am sure that, with even Steve McMichael being a former member, the 1993 version of the Four Horsemen is what many people would pay to forget.
Sound off with your thoughts of Paul Roma being a Horseman below.
