Malenko demands that Arn Anderson confront him face to face. Arn comes out with Mongo in tow. Can you believe the original plan for this stuff was to reunite the Four Horsemen without Flair? A "We Want Flair" chant breaks out right away that they try to ignore. Dean says Benoit has been trying to contact Arn to no avail. Malenko tells a story about getting to know Arn when he toured New Japan and credits Arn with getting him his job in WCW. Eventually, he asks him to rebuild the Horsemen. Arn cuts him off and says you don't join the Horsemen, you are chosen. Arn does an awesome promo here, one of the best anyone has done so far this year. He tells amazing personal stories of the sacrifices he made to be a wrestler for ten years and takes offense to anyone saying his heart isn't in wrestling anymore. He says if Dean has any humanity, he'll just let it be and walks off. This segment was tremendous.

Arn seemed due to come out once a year and tear the house down with a heartfelt promo. This was incredible and Arn taking off his shirt to show his sacrifice and physical toll was heart breaking and inspiring all the same. WCW still has some hope at this point with the Goldberg title win and this stuff leading the charge.

Arn puts Dean and the Horsemen supporters in their place--describing the nature of the commitment to being a Horseman and contrasting who he was with who he is, as symbolized by the giant scar running down the back of his neck. Truly a spellbinding segment and one of the best promos of the year.
