My Delusion: The New Four Horseman

ok well ever since Ric Flair left TNA and made his return home to WWE i've thought to myself, i'd love to see Ric create a new Four Horsemen. i have many reason for wanting this, 1 being aside from nWo and original DX, Horsemen were my favorite faction and considering the last time the group was reformed it included Chris Benoit, now i know different people have different opinions on him, i'm not really gonna get into that, but personally i don't like last being the last incarnation of the group and would like to a new Horsemen to replace that version.
So then i got thinking, who would i put in a New Four Horseman? i just couldn't make up my mind, then WWE kinda started the ball rolling for me. now of course Ric Flair would be involved, just not as 1 of the 4, he'd be in that JJ Dillon role as manager, so it's only fitting that since he is sorta mentoring The Miz(storyline wise), gave him the figure 4, my 1st member would be The Miz. now i know there are a lot of Miz haters, but as a heel, Miz sorta reminded of a Flair, dirtiest player in the game kinda thing. i know it may not be popular decision, so it's a good thing this is just in my head.
so next i took a look at the Roster and thought Dolph Ziggler. at the time he was still heel and i thought he's fit in perfectly, just has the look and attitude for it.
finding the 3rd guy for the Horsemen was easy, for some reason Cody Rhodes just stuck in my head, there is something about him and there was something fitting with all the battles Ric and Dusty had over the years for his son to be a part of Ric's New Horsemen.
That is as far as i got, i couldn't figure out anyone to be that 4th member, no one to fill that Double A Arn Anderson Enforcer role. nobody seems like "that guy", so i gave up.
Fast-forward a few months, i'm watching the end of Aug 26 2013 Raw. We have the New Corporation(they don't have an official name, so that's what i'll call them) which seem to include Randy Orton, The Shield and i guess you could say managed by HHH. That's a pretty impressive group.
Daniel Bryan is great, but to go up against those guys? he needs back up and WWE seems to be leading up to give him said back up. now original it was rumored that it would be the team of Big Show and Mark Henry taking on tag champs Rollins and Reigns of The Shield and Dolph Ziggler will go against Dean Ambrose of Shield. well from what i can tell, that's changed a bit given who was interviewed during that Raw ending segment were Dolph Ziggler, Big Show and MmmmMiz, so i was a little confused, i would have thought Mark Henry would have been talked to.
FF to Smackdown which airs tonight, i've seen it, i'll try not to spoil anything if by some fluke this blog is up before you've seen it, so the only point i will make is that again Dolph Ziggler, Big Show and Miz were link together, no still no Henry. so leads me to believe we'll be getting a ShowMiz reunion at Night Of Champions perhaps?
So Miz and Dolph, 2 of my picks for a new Four Horsemen and then Big Show, as intimidating as they come, make for an interesting trio having Daniel Bryan's back in the weeks to come.
having the 4 of them, just having each others backs, just isn't enough when going against a unified stable, take every combination of superstars WWE has thrown together to face the Shield, all fail, well almost all, but you see my point. plus there's HHH, he may just be the C.O.O. or whatever of WWE, but it wasn't that long ago that HHH was battling Brock Lesnar and he won 1, so Corporations "manager" can still hang.
Then it came to me...The Four Horsemen, what a better way to turn this feud into something epic. Maybe the 4 of them(Daniel, Dolph, Show, Miz) go against the Corporation in their individual matches and all lose and HHH has a hand in all the loses, that leads to Ric Flair getting involved, we could have an epic segment of Raw with the 4 in the ring after losing, maybe showing signs of frustration, the Flairs music hits, he comes to the ring and tells them he knows why they lost their matches, he goes on to talk about how they're not a cohesive unit like The Corporation, then maybe go on to talk about HHH knowing what he's doing having learned much from Flair as a part of Evolution, then maybe him telling them but evolution wasn't the only group he was a part of(without saying the actual name 4 Horsemen), he point 1st finger a Miz, goes on to add his another finger as he points at Dolph, 3 fingers point at Show and then turns to Daniel Bryan and put up 4 fingers, the sign of the Four Horsemen.
i personally think adding Horsemen/Ric Flair to this storyline would be just good TV and who better to be the opposing "Manager" to HHH than Ric Flair, the mic work, the in ring work, everything would be top notch.
anyways that's just one of my delusions, probably won't happen, but really cool if it did.
