Arn Anderson on Tully Blanchard Tag Team

Anderson and Tully were part of a tag team. The team was quite famous. "His wrestling IQ was advanced beyond mine," Arn admitted. "His thought process was really advanced as far as how to utilize me...

We were totally different in our styles. Tully was the second generation. And I've said before - those guys just have the advantage over the rest of us because they grow up in the business. Tully was really smart. He was really one of those guys, and he was such an a--hole that it just bled through to the audience.

Tully might have been respected. A lot of people will tell the truth these days. They'll say I respected Tully's ability but I really didn't like him, and that's the best way to describe it because he was a horseman.

"He lived it 100 percent," Arn added. "He had the watch. He had the wardrobe. He drove the Mercedes. He lived the lifestyle of a horsemen, and it was one of those things that you knew when Tully Blanchard came through the curtain, you were looking at a professional.

And he believed that his crap didn't stink. To this day, he has that swagger about him. When you see him walking around, once he gains his confidence in his setting, he owns the room, and that's the way he was. And he was good at utilizing my skills to compliment his skills and turn it into a formidable team.

I learned a lot from him, and I give him a lot of credit for the success that the horsemen had because he was the one constant. He was the one heel in the ring that everybody despised." Arn and Tully are currently connected to FTR in All Elite Wrestling.

FTR hold the AEW Tag Titles. Arn stated that FTR are his favorite tag team right now. He stated that FTR will most likely not break up. "Well, back up a little bit," Arn Anderson said. "Tully [Blanchard] and I never split up.

We went separate ways because of business decisions, but we never got into a feud or anything of that nature. These guys are committed to being a team and, I think, the best team when it's all said and done that ever lived.

And I think that's a very achievable goal for them, and I think it's an admirable one because if they do become that team and they do survive the test of time, that will amend. They've been in incredible tag matches with some of the best teams alongside them of their era”.
