LOL too funny.

There used to be so many good tag teams. I started a thread years ago about good tag teams.  I feel like there will never be a good tag division again.

They keep putting Rhodes Scholars in tag matches. And, are the New Age Outlaws officially on the comeback trail, or are they just props for "Old School Raw" and a beatdown from Lesnar?

Then, there's the new team of Brodus Clay and Tensai.

IMO, part of the reason the RW's worked so great as a tag-team is they looked like a true "team." They worked so cohesively, that they came across as two dudes who grew up together and fought together in many a fight from high school to bars, and ultimately, the ring.

Not all tag-teams possessed that quality. The British Bulldogs and Hart Foundation did. So did many others from the 80's when tag-team wrestling was amazing. Now, all too often we get two random guys seemingly put together simply because "creative" doesn't know what else to do with them.

With a keen eye for details, one truth prevails.

I guess it was a teaser as they did break up but are now back together.

I'll add the High Flyers from the AWA, which was probably the highlight of Greg Gagne's ring career. Granted, some of that may be due to how his promoter/Dad booked/pushed him, but remember that Brunzell went on to enjoy a decent run as one half of the Killer Bees in the WWF.

Indeed they are. And now they're feuding with Tensai and Brodus Clay (now known as "Tons of Funk").
