Who Are HOF Worthy Tag Teams???
 
I have recieved confirmation that Tag Teams will be inducted together if/when they get inducted so I pose the question to the public which Tag Teams deserve to be put into the HOF? I will post my idea of who should be in it in this post but in all honesty I am hoping for other people to help me in figuring out what teams are HOF worthy.

Edge and Christian


I think this is definetly my entry for who should be in the HOF. Both superstars are highly accomplished singles stars but have also done wonders for the tag team division. However, I don't know whether they would be put in as singles stars first.

These two elevated the tag team division to a whole other level when they were teaming. They have 7 World Tag Team Championships together and have always been a dominant tag team. They have gone through several phases as a team but all the while winning quite a lot. They made famous the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match, and also had famous tag matches at none other then Wrestlemania. They are a historic team that deserves to be recogonized as a team. They may have had good/great singles careers but what they did for the tag division over shadows what they did in their singles careers. They were one of the most fun teams to watch and I think for that desrves a Tag Team nomination.

The Road Warriors/ Legion Of Doom

The Road Warriors are certainties to go into the HOF in my eyes. The most instantly recognisable team in wrestling history, with their iconic look and they held the gold in every major promotion that existed at the time, and I believe they are the only team to do this.

Animal and Hawk were two big powerful guys who were renowned as two of he toughest guys in the business. They dominated wherever they went, leaving destruction everywhere. They are probably the most dominant team in wrestling history, with their size giving them an advantage over anyone they got in the ring with. They just brutalised guys, slamming the hell out of them before finishing them off with the devastating Doomsday Device, arguably the most famous tag-team finisher of all time, which the Dudleys stole and modified.

They were so over tht they could headline cards, which is rare for a specialised tag team and WWE ended up forming Demolition as a copy of the Warriors, but they were nowhere near as good. It is rare to see a team remain together for so many years, but that is what happening with the LOD, they were a team for 90% of their careers and provided great, hard-hitting matches whereever they went, memorable promos and will always be remembered as one of the all time greatest teams. it didnt matter where they went, they always won the titles.

Hawk's early death ended any chance of the Road Warriors having a final hurrah which was a shame, but there is nothing in my eyes that should prevent these guys going into the Hall of Fame as one of the best teams of all time.

I dont think that any team should be inducted before the Steiner Brothers. They got over all around the world simply on talent alone which is a hall of fame worthy accomplishment in itself. Unlike most tag teams of prominence they switched promotions quite a bit and has success in every last promotion that they went to. Rick may not have had the success in the singles rank that Scott did but as a tag team i find them untouchable

No offense to the OP, i like the concept of the thread, but if E&C were to go in, they should go in separate. Just my opinion. But on to the topic at hand, Mine would be the NEW AGE OUTLAWS. Sure, Vince probably hates them for jumping ship and mocking them, sure HHH probably hates them for talking trash about him in shoot interviews. But nobody can deny the amount of success they had from 97-00. Both as singles and tag team competitors. My favorite feud of theirs was with Chainsaw Charlie and Cactus Jack. Then they had the mic down pat! When You heard "Oh you didn't know? Yo ass better call SOMEBODAAAAAY!" You just knew you were about to get something special. If it wasn't for personal grudges with the Mcmahon-Leveque family, they'd definitely be in consideration for the HOF!

I like the Steiner brothers, and yes they were a great team, but I do think that there are other teams that should go in ahead of them, like the Road Warriors and the Dudley Boyz.

The Steiners were very good in the ring, and could wrestle as well as relying on their power game, but I think both the Warriors and the Dudleyz had more impact on the wrestling business.

As well as being more successful in titles won that the Steiners, both the teams I mentioned were very important in the way tag team wrestling is today, while I do not feel the Steiners really are. They are a great team though, and I would porbably say they are HOF worthy, but not ahead of the Road Warriors or Dudley Boyz

The Road Warriors are already in. If we're talking about the WWE Hall of Fame, I have to ask, what on Earth does Demolition have to do for their long overdue spot?

If the Road Warriors are the most iconic and recognizable tag team, Demolition certainly cannot be too far behind. Three time tag team champions, nobody had a longer individual reign than Demolition. Who is the longest reignign tag champs of all time when you combine the reigns? Demolition has had those belts for a record 698 days. I would say they were the best and most dominant tag team during the Hulkamania era.

Unless there is something I don't know about Vince's relationship with Demolition or unless they declined, the fact Demolition is not in the WWE H.O.F. really is a crime.

Steiners or the Dudleyz but seeing as how all of them are now associated with TNA I highly doubt Vince will allow it unless they come back in some capacity for a final run of sorts

The Mega Powers Hogan and Savage were so evenly matched and making them a tag team was the best move of that time i think if anyone deserves it it is them

Savage and Hogan would go in as singles wrestlers, with their Mega Powers run being mentioned during their induction ceremony. Obviously they became stars as individuals not as a tag team.

The Steiners, Dudleys and Demolition are three teams I could see with justifiable entries, probably the New Age Outlaws too, as they were a hugely popular team during the Attitude Era, picking up several tag-team titles and both were incredibly over with the fans.

Very few wrestlers get the pops and crowd reaction that Road Dogg and Billy Gunn did, and even less tag teams get reactions like that. They were one of the most popular acts in the company, part of the dominant faction and had alot of success. I think the NAO would be worthy of admission into the HOF for sure.

The Dudleys or Demolition
Dudleys had the most regins and Demolition had the longest regin
