 Dusty Rhodes & Dick Murdoch never held the AWA belts and so are an exception to the rules (hah) as they always were back in the early 70s

Greg Gagne and Jim Brunzell held the titles for an amazing fourteen straight months, defeating all comers in 77-78 (and then held it for 2 straight years 81-83!)

this is an interesting matchup

I had to vote High Flyers too-  they had great success and I probably should have seeded them higher

I never saw these two teams until long after they had both broken apart (thank you video!).  Based on the magazines, I would have chosen The Outlaws.  having actually seen both teams work.  I vote Gagne & Brunzell.

This would be a great match. In the end though I see the High Flyers coming out on top.

The only time I ever could stand Dusty was when he was a heel and teamed with Dicky. Texas Outlaws.

Outlaws. Everything I've seen of them was just so entertaining to watch.

What a fuckin' joke.  Reminds me of a presidential election - too many people who don't know shit about the subject with a vote that counts.

Rhodes and Murdoch were only in the AWA together for 9 months. They were the number two heel team on the roster. A very good team no doubt but their status in the AWA has been overblown due to these factors. Being in the movie The Wrestler. Their two matches against Bruiser & Crusher in Chicago are widely available in tapes trading circles. Their TV match against Robinson and Muraco being on DVD. And the stars both men became later.

Gagne & Brunzell teamed together for over 10 years.
