[1993-06-19-WCW-Saturday Night] Interview: Ric Flair, Arn Anderson & Paul Roma

Recommended Posts

Finally, something good out of WCW that's not a wrestling match! Roma isn't Flair or Arn as a promo, but that's not exactly news. But Flair and Arn are still really good.

 

At the end, we get a quick promo from Rick Rude hyping the Slam Jam CD.

This didn't do a whole lot from me as the pull apart at the Clash was much more affective with in ring action. Rude shilling the CD was the highlight overall.

Roma didn't embarrass himself here. He'll always be the third-best talker in this Horsemen unit, but he held his own in the few seconds they gave him.

 

I've said for a long time that Arn eventually became a better talker than Flair, and we see it again here. Unfortunately, we're back to screaming idiot Flair, so it's not really a fair comparison to make. Apparently, cocky laid-back Flair is still in Vince's closet at Titan Towers, not to be seen again for an indefinite period.

 

From what we heard, it seems like Roma's going to be Arn's post-Clash partner in the Blonds feud while Flair concentrates on Barry and the NWA title. While that seems logical enough, it also telegraphs that the Horsemen aren't winning the feud, as Roma's still such an obvious junior partner it isn't funny.

 

I guess the Original Rock didn't even make it a month as the Horsemen's manager, huh? The only good thing about that is that WCW's not pretending that there's a fourth member of the group anywhere in sight, thus the references to just "The Horsemen".

 

It was strange seeing a heel hype the Slam Jam CD. Don't get me wrong, Rude was a good choice, but usually faces are the ones who sell merchandise (the Horsemen excepted).
