Dillon is best known for being the strategic leader of the original Four Horsemen that consisted of Nature Boy Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Arn and Ole Anderson. He is most remembered as a manager in pro wrestling. He guided many wrestlers to singles and tag titles in the NWA. After leaving WCW in February 1989, Dillon served as a front office executive for the WWF until 1997. On April 21, 1997, he returned to WCW as an on-camera commissioner, which he lasted until fall 1998. In 2003, Dillon had a short stint as an NWA representative in TNA.
