I think Furnas and LaFon in ECW had a bit of a WWF stink with the fans.

For me, one of the only redeeming qualities of the death-throes WCW was Three Count. Karagis wasn't all that great but Helms and Moore could work, and the gimmick, while not anything that would get main event heat, was perfect for the time. WWF would have done something much better with those guys and that gimmick at the time.

3 count were entertaining. they were never going to main event anywhere because they were too small but the story where Tank Abbot became a fan of theirs was hilarious.

The Texas Hangmen in the dying days of the AWA were a good team.

I liked the Grapplers in Southwest Championship too.

I recall Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton working as a team after The Dangerous Alliance broke up. Did that last long cause you've got two great workers in that team?

I also thought the Bluebloods could have been more than what they essentially were, a comedy team. Although Regal trying to edumicate Eaton was some funny stuff.

They had a decent little run with the gimmick being that they were the two best tag team wrestlers ever finally teaming with each other.  It probably lasted well under a year though.

I liked the Steven Regal and Bobby Eaton team in WCW from 1995 and into 1996 a bit. The Blue Bloods gimmick was a bit corny, but at least the vignettes of Regal teaching Eaton culture and manners were amusing. For that matter the team of Steven/William Regal and David Taylor in both WCW and the WWE was good and deserved more of a chance in each.

In reading the overrated thread I was reminded of how underrated Buddy Rose and Doug Somers were. I don't care about how they looked or how their careers went up to that point, when Verne put them together I can't imagine that he expected them to basically make the Midnight Rockers look like the best tag team in the world, but they did such a great job of it that the Rockers went to the WWF a lot faster than they probably should have had any right to go. And so many people say the same thing: That Rockers vs Rose/Somers is their favorite memory of that period of the AWA and one of the better tag feuds of the decade and it still holds up.

This is all true, but I struggle to think of one other decent match that Rose & Somers had as a team, and I can't really think of any other good match that Somers ever had period.  So maybe these two teams just clicked when they wrestled, but I'm not sure if I'm prepared to say that Rose & Somers were underrated in any other context.

In fact, maybe this is a good topic: wrestlers who only seemed awesome against one other guy/team.  Like Makhan Singh (Norman the Lunatic), for example, who was magic when wrestling Owen Hart in Stampede but could barely get into the ring at any other time.

This AWA push in 1986 was the highlight of Doug Somers' career by a longshot. He was a career prelim guy and TV jobber before then, which was a big part of why people were outraged when he and Rose got the belts, let alone how. As out of shape as Rose was, he'd been a big star elsewhere rather recently. Somers had no charisma at all and was a bad interview with the gravelly voice of someone who'd smoked three packs per day for 20 years while washing it down with whiskey. He was unpushable in any promotion that could do better. That said, although I can't recall any good Doug Somers TV squashes, as opposed to say Mike Jackson or George South, he did rise to the occasion when it counted because he was a decent enough fundamental wrestler who knew what to do in that feud with Shawn and Marty.

The Quebecers. An actual proper tag team, in that they had loads of double team moves, many of which hadn't been seen in the WWF for a while, or perhaps ever. And both were pretty decent as singles wrestlers too.

Had a brief period in WCW with the stupid name Amazing French Canadians. Worked the same way as when they were not the mounties.

The Conquistadors- decked out in all gold, they gave some good arena matches to the Stallions, Harts and Rougeaus. I liked their gimmick of the switching (better than the Killer Bees). Mostly jobbers on the weekly Challenge TV shows, but I liked them anyway.

I only enjoyed the Bees switch a roo gimmick in 6 man tags when it clearly wasn’t Blair or Brunzel
