    To me this was the end of the old era and the beginning of the new era.

    I think we're almost discussing 3 different eras though.

    There was the old school era, then the "New Generation" era which was basically post Hogan, then the Attitude era (which probably began with the rise of Austin 3:16).

    Yea, lets get the discussion back to old school wrestling.

    Favourite old school tag team?

    For me, it was the best, The Road Warriors.

    As a kid, I liked Demolition. The costumes and entrance music really make them fun. As an adult looking back on them though, they obviously weren't the greatest tag team in the world.

    My favorite old school team might be the British Bulldogs.

    I Loved Money Inc, The Road Warriors and for some reason High Energy. But if I have to choose....The Hart Foundation.

    Does '80s/early '90s WWF and even WCW & ECW count here? I was actually gonna suggest a thread for those eras too (hoping this is the one).
