What if Arn Anderson had come over to the WWF without Tully?


A recent thread about the potential return of Sting that turned into a bit of a chat about late-80s, early-90s wrestling kind of got me thinking.

What if Arn Anderson had come over to the WWF as a singles wrestler and got a bit of a push – one at least as strong as the Brainbusters did?  Tully was clearly the weak link on that team and Arn was well suited to the WWF of that era – or of any era for that matter.  He was a good worker, was built enough, in good shape and could talk his ass off.  Was basically Jake Roberts with more muscle and less baggage, and Jake was over something fierce.  

So, what scenario do you see if Arn comes into the WWF at that time?  Would he have gotten over like Hennig did as Mr. Perfect?  Perhaps more?  Maybe a Bad News Brown-esque character?

Wait, what?  Tully Blanchard was the weak link?!  In what universe?  Arn wouldn't even have gotten a look without Tully, I guarantee.
