Been hearing rumblings that Tag Team Div is being rebooted......please say it is true..

I know there are no more "true tag teams" but lets look at some of the teams that made it work...

Brainbusters
Beefcake/Valentine
NAO

Of the current roster, who would you put together.....

I'm quite out of the loop with the current roster, so I'll make this general statement:

The most successful tag-teams of days gone by consisted of guys who looked like they belonged together in the sense that they operated as a well-oiled unit that had presumably spent some substantial time together.

In recent years, it seems that tag-teams consist of two random guys paired only for the simple fact that "creative" had no other ideas for them.

When thinking about this, I asked myself "Can I come up with more than 2 - 3 tag teams currently in the WWE?"

1) Epico and (some other fucking guy)
2) The one tag team of black guys who are managed by some guy name A-somethingoranother
3) Another team of black guys who used to be managed by A-somethingoranother
4) R-truth and kofi-kingston (I think thats his name)

Thats it.  Tag teams are about as over as women's matches I think.

Those are the Primetime Players. However, now that their manager, A.W. got whacked for his Kobe remark (among other things, according to WWE), I don't think they're getting the push they once did. I liked A.W., when they miked him up so you can hear him talking smack, during the match, a 21st-century Jimmy Hart.

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.....MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.....MILLIONS OF DOLLARS (I like the gimmick, but get REAL; Owen Hart was making around $400K, when he died. Benoit made half-a-million a year, and he was a main-event guy).

There are no tag teams anymore.  Nothing but simply two "superstars" that are thrown together.  This was like when Dusty and Nikita joined forces or Hogan and Savage teaming up.  Those are not true tag teams.  Tag teams are gone... but then again so are the "stable" groups.
We won't see anything like 4 Horsemen again, or Col. Rob Parkers stable, or the Flock (though it suffered from a nWo type of implosions with too many members towards the end)

What about "MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!!! MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!!!"?  Grin

I think you'll have the stables again. But, factions/stables generally last no more than two years. Remember about a year and a half ago, CM Punk was leading Nexus and Wade Barrett had the Corre.

And a few years back, Edge had "La Familia" (Chavo Guerrero, Vickie Guerrero, Hawkins, and Ryder).

all wwe wrestlers shouldn't be called superstars. where are the regular stars, semistars, regional stars and commons?

When I was a young kid, there were "job-boys" like Mike Sharpe, Barry Horrowitz, Steve Lombardi, etc. Even as "The Brooklyn Brawler," I doubt anyone ever considered Lombardi a "superstar." These guys were essentially enhancement talent for the bigger names.

I'm reminded that back in those days, the WWF also had a list of local guys in each town they ran. They'd hire these guys to do match jobs for TV's. Iron Sheik used to get pissed at many of them when they couldn't give him what he needed for his spots, so he'd stretch the shit out of them during the match, hurting them for real.
Andre was supposedly pissed at Scheik over this practice and allegedly stiffed him badly during a match they had because of it.

To me, it's a combo of the Genius gimmick and Triple H's blueblood routine.

Fizzled out faster than popping microwave popcorn.  How long did NXT last?  They had a good thing...but they shot their wad too early with it all.  How long did it take for them to get the SES (straight edge society) really moving?  Too fucking long.

Whats next for a team?  Khali and Hornswaggle?  Oh shit, I just revealed the next OVER thing for the WWE

I haven't regularly followed the shows since about 2003, amd I doubt I ever will again.
I simply don't find the angles, characters, or the action interesting enough.

I doubt that even 18 mins would appeal to me.
If I recorded it, I'd probably skip to the commercials.
