Another former 4 Horsemen member has lashed out against Vince McMahon and the WWE for their choice of which version of the famed 4 Horsemen to induct into the WWE HOF in late March. Paul Roma was a member of the 4 Horsemen and feels that the WWE should induct the entire group and not just JJ Dillon, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Ric Flair, and Barry Windham. According to a Satuday January 28th report by World Wresting Insanity, Roma made the following comments about the WWE HOF:
“At the end of the day, it gets down to the fact that the Horsemen were considered the elite, the best of the best and all that. When you pick just a chosen few, you’re leaving out everybody else. So what are you saying about that? They weren’t recognized? They weren’t Horsemen? Or is this Vince just being Vince and saying, ‘Oh. I get to pick and choose who I want because the Hall of Fame is Horsesh*t,’ for lack of a better term anyway.”
Roma joined Ole Anderson in ripping McMahon for leaving them out of the WWE HOF induction despite their participation in the 4 Horsemen. Albeit, Roma’s tenure wasn’t as significant as Ole’s, he has a legitimate point with Vince’s selection process.
Roma joined the Horsemen in 1993 after a brief hiatus from pro-wrestling. In 1992, he tried his luck at professional boxing going 2-1. Prior to that, Roma wrestled for the WWE, known as the WWF back then, from 1985 to 1991. His claim to fame in the WWF was when he participated in the tag-team The Young Stallions with Jim Powers. In WCW, Roma did win the tag-team titles twice with one of his title victories coming when he was a member of the 4 Horsemen teaming up with Arn Anderson.
