The Demolition thread got me thinking a bit. Exactly who was it that you thought was "the best tag team" ever?

For me I have "fond childhood memories" of The Executioners (WWWF 1976) but in terms of in-ring teamwork and cohesiveness and wearing the belts and just plain being unbeatable ...the Steiner Brothers?

The Steiner Bros. seemed destined to get that "best ever" label when they were hot...then a few years went by and they seem completely overlooked by history.  Maybe because Scott went on to be a World champ, I don't know, but I don't feel like history looks at them as kindly as it should.

My personal picks just based on who I like watching, in order:

1. Midnight Express
2. British Bulldogs
3. Miracle-Violence Connection
4. Steiner Brothers
5. The Eliminators
6. The Rockers
7. Hart Foundation
8. The Fantastics
9. Doug Furnas & Phil Lafon
10. Steve Austin & Brian Pillman

Top 2 today (by far) are the Briscoe Brothers and the Motor City Machine Guns.

I would put the Samoans up there somewhere.

 

 

What was up with Doug Furnas & Phil Lafon?  Never understood the appeal for these guys, but I only got to see them in the 90's in the WWF.  What is their background?  What was so good about them?  Achievements?

AJPW All-Asia Tag champs many times over, classic matches throughout Japan in the '90s.  Had a cup of coffee in ECW won their Tag titles and had some classics there too right before going to the WWF (they were probably already signed to WWF contracts by that time and just being used in ECW to get U.S. exposure).  The WWF dropped the ball BIG with Furnas/Lafon vs. Owen Hart/Davey Boy Smith.  I salivate to think how good those matches could've been.

For me it's Roadies, High Flyers, Strike Force and Midnight Rockers.

Not in that order.

I think when just talking about accomplishments, you gotta include LOD, R'n'R Express, Harlem Heat, and Dudleys, but while I don't dislike any of those teams, none are among my favorites.

Very true.

I was never a fan of Harlem Heat, but have always like Booker T as a single.   Really enjoyed The Dudley's though.

Never ever cared for The Eliminators.

Crap.  Well rework my list because I forgot about them.  They should be in my top 5.

The charisma of a wet dish rag didn't help matters.
