The Outlaws/Outsiders/whatever other name they've had.

The Dudleyz, Hardyz and Edge and Christian, simply for the greatest match ever, Wrestlemania 17 Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.

Definitely The Dudleyz, The Hardyz and E&C. Not only for producing 2 of the best matches ever and revolutionising the TLC match. But because all three teams have won numerous tag titles.

My Top 5 Tag Teams of all time are:

1) The Road Warriors/Legion of Doom, they are already in and are the most deserving tag team of the honor, PERIOD! No other team is any where close to as great a dominating team as the RW/LOD were.

2)The Midnight Express (Stan Lane/Bobby Eaton) w/Jim Cornette, this team revolutionized tag team wrestling. They were doing moves 20 years ago that some guys are just getting around to do today. They were so far ahead of their time as a team that it was insane what they were doing back in the 80's.

3) The Steiner Bros, both went to pretty much complete shit when they broke up, well Scott was somewhat entertaining as the Big Bad Booty Daddy, but neither never saw the success as singles that they saw as partners. They were another team that were so innovating as it comes to tag team wrestling. Mixing brawling, high flying, fast paced "wrestling" with great amateur wrestling. Both were legit powerhouse guys that could probably have beaten half the rosters of the promotions they were in in real fights.

4) The Dudley Brothers, I think they have won every single major tag team wrestling title that has ever existed so of course they deserve to be in the HoF. I think their best work was in ECW and when they were feuding with E&C and the Hardy Boyz. The careers for me fell off a bit after that but they were still one of the most over tag teams of all time no matter if they were heel or face or where ever they wrestled.

5) Harlem Heat, these guys were just amazing. They had that special something that you saw just a soon as they appeared on screen. Big strong guys that looked like they could really whoop your ass but just as fast and agile as some of the smaller guys on the roster. Plus Booker has my all time favorite promo line: "Hulk Hogan we comin' for you N****!"

There are so many great tag teams that deserve to be inducted and I think alot of them will be. But my first choice would be the Rockers. They are, arguably, the most influential tag team of the Wrestlemania era. There are so many great teams out there (and singles wrestlers like Jericho) that got their desire to wrestle by watching the Rockers. Not to mention the legacy of one Shawn Michaels and Marty was very talented in the ring as well. Honestly, I think Demolition should go in before the Rockers but the Rockers AND the Hart Foundation should get a nod in the next couple years. Wouldn't it be great to see both of those teams inducted on the same night?!?! LOL

Only one mention. My goodness.



Probably one of the most underrated teams of all time. Truly sit back and consider how many years, how many high profile shows, how many wildly entertaining matches these guys were in. For most the entireity of the 90s, between WCW and WWE, they were in a tag title match or around the titles in pretty much every major show that was on.

Just because they werent pretty like the British Bulldogs or the Hart Foundation, they dont get nearly the credit they deserve. Day in and day out, they were a mainstay, just as much heat as faces then as heels, and always entertaining.

There really are so many great teams. In order:

- British Bulldogs: The set the trend for the Power guy partnered up with the flier. Their feud with the Hart Foundation had fans in the palm of their hand at a time where singles wrestling was the 'norm'
- Demolition: While some see them simply as a counter programming for WCW/NWA's LOD, these guys went beyond the gimmick to become stars. In the same breathe, however, I would put them as the original Axe and Smash, not with Crush.
- Freebirds: With the Von Erichs in, I think that the next logical step is to put in their heel counter parts. The Freebirds were the original cool heel tag team.
- Rock and Roll Express: One of the original high flier teams that are truly the groundwork for future teams like the Hardys.
- Steiners: Their run in the WWF wasn't great, but their overall time as a team certainly makes them deserving of the HOF.
- Harlem Heat: Based on sheer number of tag titles reigns, you have to figure there will be a place for HH. I was never a huge fan, but I do respect the work that they did in the 90's.
- Natural Disasters: While they seemed to be the early epitome of 'take two guys who we have nothing for and put them together', they took the ball and ran with it. They were 2 agile guys who intimidated fans as heels, but then shortly after, had kids loving them.
- New Age Outlaws: When you consider the concept of Attitude era and the success that existed, you have to remember these 2. The problem with them was the end of their run. The whole feud of who owns the DX name etc really hurt, IMO, their legacy.
- Money Inc: I really think that this has more to do with Rotunda. I know that Barry is getting in as a Horseman, and don't think he needs to go in as US Express as well, since, they are largly, to me, forgettable. Rotunda's run with Dibiase, other than the old Varsity Club, is really what I'd remember him for.
- Bushwackers: great comedy team when WWF wanted the product to be taken as 'serious wrestling'. This was a great example of a team that was able to get over regardless of the belts.
- Killer Bees: Another example of a team that didn't need belts to be over. Fans loved these 2 and their 'old tricks' are still being used today.

Also, now with Flair going in twice, technically, I'd see them throwing in:

- DX: WWE/F's answer to the 4 Horsemen, if you will. They have always been the dominante faction of the E since their inception and have propelled some fairly good names, no?
- Rockers: Given that thei was yet another team that was over even without the tag titles, and that the team gave HBK his start, I could see the E putting them in soon.
- Hart Foundation: See British Bulldogs and Rockers. While the Harts got the straps a couple of times, the main thing here is that every feud they had seemed ultra important, and well, consider that Bret got his start as part of the team, it makes sense.
- NWO: This faction changed the face of wrestling forever. That isn't hyperbole, it is fact. It was THE INVASION angle that worked. Truth be told, not many had before and none will again. Plus, it would get Vince's creation, Hulkamania, acknowledged again, and it would get Hall and Nash in without Hall and nash going in.

I'd obviously like to see the Hardys, Dudleys and E & C go in, but not for a few years. I'd almost want these 3 teams to go in in the same year since they really are a package deal. the matches and feud between them made the Hardys and E&C. The Dudleys had a following prior to the feud but it was the big time for them as well.

I would agree with you on everyone except the Bushwhackers, Money Inc., and the Killer Bees. And I think that the New Age Outlaws should be separate from DX, but I think there's a good chance they all get inducted together. Which would be seriously wrong, IMO but I just see that happening. Good list though! I'm actually kinda surprised you didn't mention Strike Force. I think their more deserving than the 3 aforementioned teams I have doubts about.

i cant believe that no one has mentioned the outsiders, 7x tag champs and more importantly they revolutionized the business by ushering the nWo and with it being one of the miajor catalysts for the attitude era, i could see them doing it as the nWo however seing as how the 4 horsemen have been inducted this year which would be fine as well
