    The Harlem Heat may've squeaked by the Hollywood Blonds but there's no way they get over Bockwinkel, Stevens and Heenan here. Bockwinkel and Stevens were on top of the AWA tag team scene when the AWA still meant something. They regularly beat teams like Verne Gagne and Billy Robinson, Bruiser and Crusher, The Vachons, and The Texas Outlaws.

    Winners: Bockwinkel and Stevens

    Stevie Ray and Booker T were a great team. Bockwinkel and Stevens were an exceptional team. Heenan trumps Sherri as a Manager. I just cannot see Heat winning this. It would be a great match. But, Harlem Heat loses.

    I hate to vote against Harlem Heat so early in the tournament but that's what I did. I've seen very very little of Bockwinkel and Stevens. I'm going by what I've read and what I've read is these guys were awesome. They seem to have universal respect and their reputations hold up decades after their careers ended despite competing in the often overlooked AWA. I hope WWE Network starts showing some AWA stuff so I can see more of these two.

    Bockwinkel and Stevens were amazing as a tag team. And were legit tough and I'm also pretty sure they were racists. At least they are in my mind (for kayfabe purposes only).

    Harlem Heat dominated a rather weak tag division that had the Steiners on their last legs as a tag team, Luger and Sting while they were not exactly getting along, and the American Males... who beat them TWICE for tag belts, btw.

    Bockwinkel and Stevens wouldn't lose to a team called the American Males.

    Give it to Bock and Steve.
