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.
