I remember seeing the interview where Arn made the comment about the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" on TBS. It isn't an urban myth. I *think* there is some footage out there, but I could be wrong. But I do definitely remember that show and thinking how cool that comment was at the time as there were four of them and they were creating havoc in JCP.

This might be the explanation:

Arn has been interviewed many times about the original "interview". In these historical retrospective interviews he's done on the WWE Network and on old WWE dvds, he makes claims about saying the "Four Hoseman of the Apocalypse" line. WWE usually interspersed little video clips in between Arn's retrospective while Arn talks over them.

I don't think the actual interview has ever aired. Everyone "remembers" seeing it, but really all they are remembering is people talking about the interview in past tense.

This is kinda like the old Star Wars argument. Not sure how many people remember this, but when the very first Star Wars film aired, the opening crawl did not include "Episode IV - A New Hope", but there are people who swear on their life that they remember seeing it.

Must be the Mandela effect.  As for Star Wars, put me down as someone who saw the original in the theater and will swear that it was called "Episode IV"  I remember, as a 6 year old, being somewhat confused by that.

Star Wars was called Episode IV in the opening crawl when it was re-released in theatres in 1981. People may remember seeing it but are misremembering exactly when they did. 

Arn said "you got the Four Horsemen of Professional Wrestling" kn the 11-9-85 WCW show. It's on YouTube near the end of the show. He was by himself for the promo.

Well - my brother saw Star Wars when it came out.  I was 6.  Two years or so later they re-released it in the movie theater a good year or more before Empire came out and my brother took me to see it because he said that I should.  I was closing in on 8 at the time.  The fucking movie said Episode IV - A New Hope, and I said to my brother “why didn’t we see the other three first?”.  He said he didn’t know what that meant because it was the first Star award movie.  So...maybe the original in ‘77 didn’t have it, but the re-release in ‘79 did.  I was there and my brother who is -10 years older than me rememberes me saying it.

Finally, the question becomes “OK, so it wasn’t until The Empire Strikes Back was fully planned that the first Star Wars film became Episode IV. So when did it literally get changed?” A number of fans presume it happened during the 1978 re-release, but as it turns out, it was not until the spring 1981 re-release of the first Star Wars film (well after the release of The Empire Strikes Back in 1980) that the “Episode IV – A New Hope” tagline was added. That new version of the film was the one that was released on home video and has subsequently become the most famous version of the original film, so much so that few fans recall ever seeing a version of the film that didn’t have “Episode IV” on it.

I honestly recall hearing Arn say that. Maybe it didn't happen but in mind I swear to God I can clearly see it.
