    My favorite Old-School tag teams where the Midnight Express, Harlem Heat and the Steiner Brothers. Rick and Scott just wrecked people and bobby and Stan where just in sync. And the Heat? just a team of winners.

    And one of my favorite team even though they didn't tag much but when they did it was like they tagged for years. I'm talking about Sting & Lex Luger

    I just watched MISTER Bob Backlund vs. Pat Patterson in their famous Steel Cage bout at Madison Square Garden in 1979.

    Man those two were OVER. There was an old granny throwing stuff at Pat when he used the knux and the turnbuckle part. She also gave Pat the finger.

    Man who says wrestling can't be for everyone!?

    Yes it is. As well as the Macho Man 3 part retrospective. I've recently watched both.

    No, Demolition was not the better team in terms of work-rate. Bill Eadie (The Masked Superstar) could barely move when he was in Demolition, which is why they eventually got a third member of Demolition to come in.

    Eadie was a better worker than the other members of Demolition, and the Road Warriors, combined, but that would've been when he wasn't injury-plagued. By the time he was with Demolition he had a bad back, among other injuries.

    Both appearance-wise, and in terms of work-rate, the Road Warriors were superior.

    hmm, maybe you're right. WCW and NWA used to work together a lot back then so they likely did work in WCW 1st. they did have 2 different runs in the WWF and wrestled for WCW in between though.

    lol, are you for real? The Road Warriors got their start in Georgia (NWA territory) back in '82. What ultimately became WCW was essentially what was left of the NWA. WCW (formerly Jim Crockett Promotions, but bought out by Ted Turner) dissolved itself from the NWA schtick.

    I can't believe there are people who actually think (or thought) that the Road Warriors got their start in the WWF. I guess it has to do with when they started watching pro wrestling, and which promotions they were paying attention to.......I've come across people who thought Demolition were the originals with the gimmick, and the Road Warriors were imitators who turned out to be better (Road Warriors being the imitators was obviously false), but you're the first person I've come across who thought the Road Warriors got their start in the WWF.

    And "The Legion of Doom" was the name of "Precious" Paul Ellering's group in the Georgia territory. It included the Road Warriors, "Mad Dog" Buzz Sawyer, King Kong Bundy, and Jake "The Snake" Roberts. There were other members, as well, at different times, but I wouldn't remember who the others were.....Eventually, Ellering went on to only managing the Road Warriors.

    When they ventured into the WWF, Vince McMahon had them call themselves the "Legion of Doom," making it their new tag team name. He probably did it for copyrights and such, and perhaps also to make it look like he invented them.

    The Midnight Express was far better when it was "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton & "Loverboy" Dennis Condrey.

    Stan Lane was one of the Fabulous Ones, and came in when Condrey left.

    you know who else looked awesome??

    Your earlier claim on the Road Warriors being all make-up & roids? That's better reserved for those two (Barbarian & Warlord, aka "The Powers of Pain").......Barbarian & Warlord had a cool look, but they were horrible workers.

    Gryph asked for best feud.
    I have a fondess for MAcho Man/Ultimate Warrior, since i liked them both as kids.
    Austin/Mcmahon was always fun for the wacky factor.
    In watching those Nitros, Vince Russo/WCW is highly entertaining. In a train wreck way.

    Hogan vs Savage was pretty cool. The whole mega powers thing was slowly drawn out in a way we just can't get in his day and age.

    Did they ever come right out and say that?
    I thought it was just naturaly placed into the story without an announcement. He was still announcing when they recongnized that he ran the company if i remeber right.
