    I'm not voting until I'm done with this post. I have to talk myself into voting one way or the other.

    I don't think anyone can argue that DiBiase isn't the best wrestler in this match, and he's probably the best on the mic. IRS was no slouch either in the ring. Both members of Beer Money are very good, and are the best tag team in wrestling right now. They both have loads of chemistry, and have fought the best of the best during their times as tag teams.

    I'm going to have to vote for Money Inc here, simply for DiBiase, but I wouldn't hate anyone for voting for Beer Money.

    Just because a tag team is good right now, doesn't mean they're THAT good. Beer Money is a very good tag team, but Money Inc. was a dominant team in the early 90's that captured the tag team titles THREE times during a period when tag team wrestling was a really big deal. They won their titles by defeating the Legion of Doom, the Steiner Brothers (in their PRIME), and the Natural Disasters (a major force back then). These guys should NEVER be overlooked in this tournament. As far as I'm concerned, they should make it to the final four. DiBiase's brilliance and in-ring technical prowice was perfectly matched with IRS's power and consistancy.

    I'm not saying that Beer Money is a slouch... not by ANY means. They work great together and are a similar pairing to Money Inc... two singles wrestlers that have an interesting relationship to the other. Put those elements together and you have quite a pairing.

    But, no matter how good Beer Money does in TNA, they could never compare to Money Inc's resume. Beer Money is stuck feuding with great tag teams whose primes waived bye-bye a long, long time ago. Money Inc. BEAT those tag teams in their primes.

    Money Inc takes the gold on this one.

    Hey, hey, hey - hold it there, cowboy. I'll have you know that Money Inc. holds victories over neither Team 3D, nor the even greater team of Scott Steiner and Booker T. Do your research, lest I make you look like an amateur once more.

    But seriously, good post. I was considering backing Beer Money - who, if I'm honest, I still prefer. However, your post won be round. I was going to look it up (honest), but I had no idea Money Inc. had such an impressive resume. I can't find it in my cold, shrivelled heart to vote against them.

    DiBiase and IRS fought the Steiners Brothers and Strike Force at their best and were an underrated tag team. Beer Money is good but I believe Money Inc. can go punch for punch with them. Only knock against Beer Money I have is that as a unit they've basically fought against Team 3D and a past their prime LAX. Roode and Storm aren't that much better than DiBiase and IRS so it will be a good matchup. Money Inc. wins in a hardfought match.

    Pretty easy decision here for me. I like Roode, but James Storm does nothing for me. Money Inc. on the other hand were one of the better tag teams during the late 80s, early 90s heyday of WWF tag team wrestling. Let us not forget there classic theme music either. Seriously though, I'm a big fan of DiBiase and I've always thought Rotunda was a very, very underrated worker. So they get my vote here.

    TMed Dibiase is probably the richest man in all of wrestling. So that means he will finally have enough money to quench the thirst of Beer Money. And while Beer Money is at the bar, listening to one of those songs about fried food and beating women in their pickup, Money Inc gets the easy ten count for the win. Because we all know, Money rules everything.

    Why in the world would anyone pick Beer Money here? Roode is a less talented version of Ted DiBiase. Think about it. What in his gimmick of the rich guy wasn't stolen straight from DiBiase and tweaked to be about Wall Street? Then you're asking me to compare James Storm to IRS? Give me a break. This is Money Inc. with ease, as they dominated tag team wrestling in the biggest company in the world during a very underraated period in tag team wrestling.

    Honestly, this isn't even a hard fought match to me. It's a slaughter. Everyone gives Beer Money so much credit because they're what's hot right now. But seriously, what have they done?? Ok, they were champs a few times and they feuded with 3D and LAX. But honestly, Team 3D is WAYYYYY past their primes and LAX really had no one to feud with when they were on top... at least not the likes of LOD, the Steiners, Strike Force, Natural Disasters, The Nasty Boys, and the Mega Maniacs (Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake).

    Money Inc's first day as a tag team resulting in defeating LOD for their first tag team championships. Their only defeats came at the hands of the Natural Disasters from outside interference, LOD at Wrestlemania, and the Smokin Guns in a triple threat tag match including the Head Shrinkers (ALSO from outside interference).

    These guys have been through the ringer against a who's who of tag team specialists. There is NO REASON to vote for Beer Money against them in this round... NONE.

    Vote for Money Inc because you're all supposed to and it's the only thing that makes sense.

    I gotta go with Money Inc. here. I love Beer Money and they are probably my favorite team in the biz today. But Ted Dibiase is one of my all time favorites. The guy is awesome and great in the ring and on the mic, hence why I backed him in the WZ singles tournament. So why not give him my full support here.

    I'm going to go with Beer Money here. For the last couple of years, they have been the best tag team in TNA. A division which has included the likes of 3D, LAX, and Steinbook, who are actually quite decent. Not only have they been extremely successful with their athleticism and chemistry, but they have been one of the most entertaining teams as well.

    As for Money, Inc., they are a very good team, but for all of those who always go with the "real" tag teams, they can be claissfied as a team of guys who were mostly singles guys. I also think that it is safe to say that IRS is the worst guy in this match, and if BMI could focus on him, they could be successful.

    You really can't go wrong either way, but I encourage you to vote for Beer Money because they of their success and entertainment value and because Centista should've beat MI last round.

    They traded wins with both LAX and Team 3D, and to my knowledge they have never beaten Steiner and Booker T in a straight up tag match. They have also lost matches to Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed. Money Inc has defeated two of the greatest tag teams of all time, the Steiners and Road Warriors. They have also defeated teams like the Natural Disasters, Nasty Boys, and Mega Maniacs.

    Dibiase was a singles guy for most of his career, but IRS was almost always in a tag team. He has won the WWE tag titles 5 times and he has also held the tag titles in NWA. As for you saying he's the worst guy in this match, that is fucking hilarious. He and Dibiase are the two best in this match.

    Outside of the tag division what exactly have Roode or Storm ever done? That's right, nothing. Neither of them have ever held a singles title in TNA. They are a good tag team but definitely not great. Money Inc would win this and it isn't that close.

    Beer Money is probably one of the best tag teams to ever arise from this decade & has really meshed well as a team together defeating some of the greatest teams of now & past such as Team 3D & L.A.X. They have achieved success in the tag team wrestling world & are always a legitimate threat to any team.

    Sadly, the team they are going against is one that has done more than Beer Money at this point, Money Inc. They have beaten some of the best tag teams in their prime & have more championship reigns to boot. Add this with the fact that both members of Money Inc. are better than both members of Beer Money in comparison & have the greater tag psychology, experience, etc. ... there is no way Beer Money will get the victory, but they will do their best to get the win.

    What kind of a point are you trying to make here? Who gives a shit if they have ever wrestled a singles match in their life, it is rather irrelevant here. They are a better and more cohesive tag team than Money Inc, at least in my opinion. You obviously are against all of the TNA teams, so I'm not going to bother arguing with you about it.

    You said that IRS was the worst guy in the match. I was just pointing out that Roode and Storm are good tag wrestlers but nothing else. Rotundo has been successful as a tag and singles wrestler, and he is much better then both Storm and Roode.

    And I'm not against all TNA teams. The supposed "great teams" in TNA just aren't as good as teams like Harlem Heat, Money Inc, the Steiner Brothers, and the Road Warriors. You seem to be against any team that isn't from TNA, or two main eventers that were thrown together for two weeks.

    Beer Money sucks, end of story. I can't stand either one of those motherfuckers, or that ugly stank they have in their corner. They're stupid, incompetent, and their matches are complete shit. It's as simple as that...

    Money Inc., on the other hand, is one of the most entertaining heel tag teams, EVER. Shit, Dibiase alone is one of the all around greatest professional wrestlers of all time. And I'm sure most would agree that IRS is one of the most underrated wrestlers in history. Hell, even nearly twenty years later... WWE still calls on both wrestlers and their gimmicks to make appearances here and there for the company, and each time they're greeted with HUGE pops from the WWE audience. Whereas Beer Money is only liked by a handful of TNApes.

    This is really no competition, and perhaps the most one-sided match-up in the 2nd Round.

    Lol. Are you actually using this argument? Money Inc. perfected the art of cheating. Beer Money is out of their league here. I'd much rather take a shot to the head with a beer bottle, then a shot to the head with a metal briefcase. And let's not forget that Money Inc would have Jimmy Hart in their corner. I can't remember the number of times I've seen Jimmy Hart help a team get the victory by distracting the ref and throwing his megaphone into the ring to use as a weapon.

    I voted for Beer Money. I think that Money, Inc. won their titles against power teams, and would not fair as well against quicker, technical opponents. Beer money have vast technical skill, and while DiBiase is the best wrestler in the match, I think Storm and Roode are 2 and 3, and well ahead of IRS.

    Furthermore, while Money, Inc. will cheat, I'm not sure they can out cheat Roode and Storm. While they may be a little moral now, I think in something prestigious as this tournament, they will do what it takes to win.

    Money, Inc. and it's not even close. DiBiase is twice the wrestler both Storm and Roode are, and I.R.S is far from being a slouch when it comes to getting technical. I mean, he head an amateur wrestling background and was a fine technician in the ring (moreso than Roode and Storm if you ask me), and during his NWA run, he showcased his skills pretty well against the likes of Rick Steiner and Sting.

    And as previously stated, Money, Inc. perfected the art of cheating. Though I'm not really one to base my judgement off how well a team can cheat, Money, Inc. get the vote due to vast superior wrestling skills and success.
