I always saw the Horsemen as Flair, a tag team with Arn Anderson as one half, plus an upper-midcard singles guy who isn't going to want Flair's title. I know this wasn't always the formula, but this is when it worked best. For me, Piper was too close to Flair, and it wouldn't have made sense for him to play second fiddle to Flair. The Horsemen don't work with internal rivalries.

The thing here is that Flair, Windham, Arn and Tully with JJ were pretty close to wrestling perfection, which makes this a difficult question to answer. You can't swap out Flair or Arn. Tully was Arn's best tag partner, which only leaves that fourth spot open, and I can't imagine anyone being better in that spot than Windham.

If you are talking about the lesser 90s Horsemen, Flair, Malenko and Benoit with Arn as the manager were a good fit. They never filled that last spot properly. I really can't think of someone perfect.. Scott Norton?
