Part 21: Separate Destinies - Late 1991: With Ric Flair out of the picture for a while in the WWF (see image above), calling himself the "Real World Champion", there were some pretty "iffy" days for the Four Horsemen. In fact, for all intents and purposes the Four Horsemen ceased to exist for over a year.

Arn Anderson joined up with Larry Zbysco to form the tag team "The Enforcers" (seen here taking on Scott Steiner)which won the WCW Tag Titles almost immediately (September 1991). They were so dominant during their short two months together that they were named Pro Wrestling Illustrated Tag Team of the year for 1991. They eventually had a fatefull run-in with challengers Dustin Rhodes and Barry Windham during which Larry Z earned the nickname "The Cruncher" by slamming Barry Windham's hand in a car door. This led directly to the defeat at the hands of Rhodes and his substitute partner Ricky Steamboat, thus ending their title reign and their partnership.

Arn then came back two months after that and won the Titles again with his new partner "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton. They were the linchpin of manager Paul E. Dangerously's (ECW promoter Paul Heyman) extended stable called the Dangerous Alliance.

Meanwhile, just three days later (January 19, 1992) Ric Flair won the WWF Heavyweight Title at the Royal Rumble. Clearly the Horsemen were still dominating the wrestling world, even as separate entities!
