Who should be in:
The Fabulous Freebirds (P.S., BamBam, BuddyJack, Jimmy Jam)
The Midnight Express (Beautiful Bobby Eaton, Sweet Stan Lane)
Demolition (Ax and Smash)
The Rockers (Shawn's 2nd, Marty J.)
Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray)
The New Age Outlaws - Will probably be inducted as DX members
The Steiners
The Hart Foundation - (Bret's 2nd and possibly inducted as the HF stable)
The Hollywood Blondes - (Stone Cold's 2nd)

*Addendum with Scenario*
I'd love to see, when the time comes, The Hardys, The Dudleys, and Edge&Christian to all be inducted together at the same show. So much of their history is linked between the three teams.

I'm gonna poke some holes in a few of these.

The Rockers. One of my three favorite tag teams of all time, and Marty Jannetty is one of my 5 favorite wrestlers of all time. That said, they lack the success required to be hall of famers. They never "officially" won the Tag Team Titles, and are better known for their breakup than for their career as a team. I don't think they're in the echelon of hall of fame level as a tag team.

Midnight Riders. Dusty and Magnum weren't synonymous as a tag team in any appreciable way. Nobody says "gee, I wish I had a DVD of old Midnight Riders matches." They were two great singles stars, but I don't see them standing on their own as a team to make the HoF.

New Age Outlaws. Absolutely. Redefined tag team wrestling in the attitude era. For some, it was these 2 guys and NOT HHH or HBK who launched DX into the level it became.

The British Bulldogs. Absolutely. Davey and Dynamite were just terrific. Instead of inducting them as a team specifically, though, I'd induct each man separately (but in the same year) for their single accomplishments as well.

The Steiner Brothers. Definitely. An all time great brother team in WWF and WCW. Won tag titles everywhere they went. Rare two-country legends with USA and Japan.

The Outsiders. Yes, though I'd also induct each man separately to pay respect to their singles careers as well. I don't know if I'd induct either man on JUST their singles or JUST their tag team careers, but when you factor both in, they're shoe-ins.

Hollywood Blondes. I'm a mark for these guys, but I say no. Not together long enough. Dominated the tag team scene in WCW, but only for about 9 months. History is kind to these guys because of the fact that Steve Austin came from here. Amazing team, lacks longevity to make the HoF.

Harlem Heat. Definitely. WCW's greatest tag team. 10-time champs. Re-defined a dominant tag team.

Here's one I'll add in, and you tell me what you think:
Money Inc. Ted DiBiase and Irwin R Shyster were fantastic together. Great heel team, and had memorable feuds with the Natural Disasters, L.O.D., Steiners, Nasty Boys, High Energy, even the Bushwhackers and Beverley Brothers. Great era of tag team wrestling.

It's a joke that Demolition isn't in the HOF.

The Steiner Brothers, Hart Foundation, British Bulldogs, Harlem Heat, and Dudley Boyz are a few others that come to mind.

Three teams immediately comes to mind for me:

DEMOLITION: - The longest reigning World tag team champions of all-time and the best tag team during one of the most competitive (if not the best) eras in tag team wrestling in WWE history.

HARLEM HEAT - How can you argue with 10 WCW Tag Team titles during an era that featured teams like the Nasty Boys, The Steiners, and an aging LOD?

THE STEINER BROTHERS - For all they've accomplished, they certainly are the most underappreciated tag team ever.

Road Warriors: Probably the most popular and best remembered team of the 80s, had their greatest run in the NWA as constant enemies of the Midnight Express and Four Horsemen, but also had much success in the AWA, WWE, and Japan.

Tully Blanchard/Arn Anderson: One of the best examples of two established singles stars forming an excellent team AFTER their singles success. These two were a great combination of off the top rope, technical, and brawling skills with plenty of creative cheating as heels. First tag team ever to win both the NWA/WCW & WWE Tag Titles.

Rock & Roll Express: Hugely popular in the 80s but also extremely talented, they wrestled against heavyweights while wrestling like cruiserweights with a wide array of high flying moves. The crowd reactions they drew were un real, and their feud with The Midnight Express was so good WWE copied the whole dynamic when the created the evil cowardly (but supremely skilled) Hart Foundation (complete with their own obnoxious southern manager, ala the Midnights) vs British Bulldogs.

Midnight Express: One of the greatest heel teams of all time, had a small rotation of members, Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey, & Stan Lane (who also excelled as fan fave in The Fantastics) being the primary three. So detestable were they that literally the only way to turn them face was to create another Midnight Express (lead by Paul Heyman) to destroy them.

British Bulldogs: Top face team in WWE in the 80s

Hart Foundation: Top heel team in 80s WWE eclipsing teams lead by Mr Fuji & Freddie Blassie

Harlem Heat: They dominated, exclusively in WCW, during a time when tag teams in general weren't doing much, still they dominated for several years, and their title success was hard to deny.

Personally Im not partial to Demolition, they were too much a rip off the RW, while the Bulldogs-Harts dynamic was based on the Midnights & R&R, it wasn't a carbon copy. And while they had a nice run it wasn't as prolific or as long as the other teams listed.

Rockers (AKA Midnight Rockers) - Had their best success in the AWA as that promotions copy of the R&R Express, copied the look and ring style, only not as well. In WWE they were mostly mid carders and never won a title. HBK's singles success and success in DX far outshines them.

The Outsiders in my view didn't spend enough time as an actual tag team, they were two prominent members of the NWO who teamed from time to time, they didn't compete full time and exclusively as a team they way Anderson & Blanchard did during their run, or the way HBK & HHH did in the 2000s when they reformed their shortened version of DX and won the WWE Tag Titles. To me they are comparable to Ric Flair's teams with Lex Luger (The self proclaimed "Dream Team) in 1987 or his run with Arn Anderson in 1990 & 1996, short term runs built into their bigger singles careers.

The Steiners were extremely popular, won a boat load of titles, and competed successfully in WCW, WWE, & Japan, and at their peak were extremely talented. I can see them being HOF worthy.

The Dudley Boys were by far the biggest tag team in their time, maybe not a great era for tag teams, but their whole ECW styled "get the tables" gimmick was revolutionary for its time.
