I've just read through the other poll and found a surprising comment from Belty, it is that he puts The Hart Foundation second in his list of great tag teams, behind Demolition.

 

That being said for me I think the Greatest Tag Team was The Road Warriors/LOD so for you excluding The Dudz who is your Greatest of that era.

That was a golden era of tag wrestling. Demolition, LOD, Harts, Rockers, Steiners, Bulldogs, Midnight Express, Rock n Roll Express, Rougeaus, Strike Force and even teams who never really meant alot like Power & Glory, Collosal Connection, Bolshevicks, Orient Express, Twin Towers, Powers of Pain, Bushwhackers, Beverly Brothers etc were fun to watch. And then the awesome teams put together for the progression of storylines, like the Mega Powers. I loved tag wrestling back in the day, guys wearing matching outfits, double-team finishing moves...awesome

Tough one for me.

 

I never really got into LOD. I dont know why, watching them now from tapes I can see they were good, but never really liked them.

 

Demolition were OK to be honest. I think both found their place in the tag division, neither would of stood out alone. Adding Crush wasnt a good choice either. Good tag workers but nothing too special.

 

The Nasty Boys annoy me. Dont like their style, and bad wrestling skills. Not much I liked about them

 

The Hart Foundation were boring to me. Never liked them.

 

The Steiner Brothers, well now were talking! Awesome is one word to describe them. Rick in his prime wasnt that bad. Solid I'd say. But Scott Steiner was brilliant back then. His suplexes, the Screwdriver alone and of course The Frankensteiner made him stand out to me. Pity he isnt as good now, and in his wrestling prime didnt do much.

Great tag team.

 

The Bulldogs, were the only ones who came close to them for me. The obvious attraction with them being from England, but they coul wrestle too. Dynamite was a good technical wrestler and quick, and Davey Boy's brute strength.

Shame what has happened to both :(

demolition were mad can u remember when they had 3members and one hid under the ring to cheat the titles? i think it was against the hart foundation, i know LOD took titles off them

 

what? what? what?

 

The LOD never took the titles off of Demolition, that was the Hart Foundation in a 2 out of 3 falls match at SummerSlam 90, when Ax came and hid under the ring and the LOD came out and caused havoc, helping the Harts win.

 

I never liked the third member, Crush, he ruined the squad, I always think of Demolition as Ax and Smash. :)

With Demolition WWE were ahead of there time, with the look and the metal style music. I marked for them. The Rockers and The Harts were great. Bulldogs rocked and Power and Glory had one of the best tandem finishers around. Just look at the first two Survivor Series, then look at the tag division(s) now.

 

 

It's okay to cry.

i'd probably say LOD were my faves or the Harts

 

 

BTW i met one of the nasty boys the blonde one can't remeber his name when they were over in glasgow in either 91 or 92, i think he was late aas it was when we were coming into the SECC he was wandering around, he spotted me and my friend whom are both in wheelchairs and he wandered along with us for a few minutes as we headed along to get in... class act! :thumbsup

They were great. Remember the build up to SummerSlam '88, the Mega Powers vs Mega Money? It was fantastic.

 

That match felt like a main-event attraction because it was the only place you could see that match. Even Jesse as the special ref meant something and threw controversy into the match. The reason it worked as well, IMO, is the fact you had since WMIV to build the match, with no PPVs in between, only the occasional special. That made it great.

 

That's why I feel they should reduce the PPVs to, at the most 6, and go back to the occasional specials. Leave all gimmick matches to the PPVs, this would stop them becoming stale, and use the TV time to build fueds slowly, like they seem to be doing with Batista and what they did do with Jericho and HBK going into WM19.

*HDC sheds a tear for Lo-Down, The Headbangers (who were good), The Body Donnas, The Godwins and The Natural Disasters as the teams that no one mentions anymore.......except me just now, sorry.*

 

I actually liked the Nast Boys when they were fueding with the Harts and The Rockers. Their music and look were great and made them stand out. They also had a great no DQ match with LOD, at SummerSlam '91 I believe.

dont know wat happened to axe? dont know wat happened to the other bulldog though?

 

The other bulldog, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington, went back to Japan and also worked back in the UK, but his back problems got worse and worse and he is now confined to a wheelchair.

 

As for Ax, he started having heart problems and could no longer handle the travel or the full time schedule in the WWF. He still works indy shows around the USA to this day as 'Demolition Ax'.

Thats Brian Knobs. Awesome story, he is one of Hogans closest friends. In 1994, I went to a WWF show and saw Lex Luger outside the back of the arena taking a pee in the grass, lol.

They were great. Remember the build up to SummerSlam '88' date=' the Mega Powers vs Mega Money? It was fantastic.[/quote']

 

They were awesome and I agreem the build up was perfect. I loved everything about that angle, it started at WMIV and lasted well past WMV, it was great. Slow burning fueds rule. BTW, they were called the Mega Bucks :)

 

The reason it worked as well' date=' IMO, is the fact you had since WMIV to build the match, with no PPVs in between, only the occasional special. That made it great.[/quote']

 

NO DOUBT!!! Now we have 14 or more PPV's per year, no wonder everything is so rushed, and sucks!

 

That's why I feel they should reduce the PPVs to' date=' at the most 6, and go back to the occasional specials. Leave all gimmick matches to the PPVs, this would stop them becoming stale, and use the TV time to build fueds slowly, like they seem to be doing with Batista and what they did do with Jericho and HBK going into WM19.[/quote']

 

Agreed once more. Its a shame that Vince and co seem to think that when their product is down at worse than it has ever been, the best thing to do is ADD MORE PPV's! Its so stupid. Scale it back to Rumble, WM, King of the Ring, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and then throw in Saturday Nights Main Event 3-4 times per year and slow everything down.

Dont get me wrong I loved Brian Pillman and Stunning Steve Austin as the Hollywood Blonds back in WCW when they beat Steamboat and Douglass for the belts.They just wasnt together long enough for me. You were talking about those big masked guys that dressed in all gold in the WWF right? I remember those guys.

 

Hell, back then the WWE had a pretty deep tag team division. Even the jabroni teams like The Young Stallions(Roma & Powers),The Islanders(Haku & Toma),and the Killer Bees(Blair & Brunsel) were pretty good too.

The topic began like that, I think, but it went off on a slight tangent.

 

Imagine that, a thread that strayed from the original idea(!)

 

I just remembered the team that was called Well-Dunn, and the used to wear bow-ties while they were in a match and shook hands instead of an actual tag. They were sh*t :)

As for Ax, he started having heart problems and could no longer handle the travel or the full time schedule in the WWF. He still works indy shows around the USA to this day as 'Demolition Ax'.

 

He also worked in Japan as 'Axis the Demolisher' . He had a new tag partner, I can't remember what he was called, he was really really tall. I think, that they called themselves the 'New Demolition'.

The Headbangers were really good, the most underated team of there time.
