Odds that they kill the lights at some point to take a jab at the NFL tonight?

Team Hell No
Prime Time Players
Team Carlitos brother
Kofi and Truth
Errrr Punjabi Playboy and Hornswoggle.

That's from someone who barely watches wrestling these days and is barely paying attention when he does, how'd I do ?


As someone who still follows, I had to look it up beyond Team Hell No. Looks like you scored 2/5.
THN
Kofi and R-Truth
Epico and Primo
Kofi and Evan Bourne (really!)
David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty (really?)

I used to really enjoy the tag teams too. Headshrinkers, Bushwackers, Natural Disasters, Legion of Doom, various versions of the Hart Foundation etc.

The shame of it is that WWE seemed to actually be a building a division again. With the announcement that the Rhodes Scholars are done, I'm not so sure anymore. Up until that, the division was stronger than it had been in years.

I will at least give them credit for breaking up the RS in a non-obvious fashion. No bust up, no face turn... just a decision to go singles. It's almost refreshing.

Quick, no googling: name the last 5 tag team champions, in order, starting with the most recent!


To be fair, the only title I can do this for with any amount of confidence is the WWE Championship (Rock, Punk, Del Rio, Punk, Cena). The end of that I'm not even sure on, wasn't that when they had dual champions and the tournament and all that?

Almost, but they did the same thing with Kofi/Truth a few months ago.

Well, rumors are they are killing PTP to set Titus O'Neil on a singles career.

Well. This tops the returns of both Sable and Bret in the "never happening" category for me. Daymn.

Still think it's overkill to do Foley/Backlund/Bruno all at once, but Fuck it. Do it while you can.

Mick Foley revealed during a comedy show in Adelaide that a neurologist informed him that he is not able to wrestle ever again.


Foley got the news after he explained his proposal to WWE about having a match with Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam as a follow-up to their YouTube/Twitter feud. Foley noted that he proposed to have a “fake” Dude Love come out of the entrance way, but would be attacked by Dean from behind as Mankind was coming through the ring.
These plans would later be nixed due to his diagnosis from the neurologist.

Also at the comedy show, Foley noted that he felt Dean made very personal comments about his family within the feud and asked him to stop, but Dean thought this was “face” Foley actually egging him on.


I'm sad this never happened. What little bit that did happen was very entertaining.

I never thought Darren Young would get out from underneath being "Black Cena", but he's done well with Titus. I still don't see him as being more than a jobber as a singles guy, though.

I hate how they keep having Cesaro & Ryback matches. If they built up Cesaro more and then had them fight it would have probably seemed like a pretty big deal.

I'd think HHH would induct Bruno, since a) He put this together and b) Obligatory comment about WWE likes to portray HHH as a star of the highest magnitude and they want him in that spot.

If they are trying to reboot Swagger they probably should have changed his stupid theme.

Off the top of my head, I can name more WCW tag team champions from 1996 than WWE tag team champions from the last five years.

Bruno Sammartino has officially been announced for this year's Hall of Fame.



All things in consideration, I think I'm okay with giving Triple H some credit for this development. The day Owen Hart and Randy Savage have places in the physical WWE Hall of Fame is the day Curt Hennig wins a WWE world title.

Edit: Holy shit, 1996 is 17 years ago.

By saying The Rockers I was reminded of the infamous "top rope broke" match with the Hart Foundation where The Rockers DID win the belts. But it never aired so it never happened. It was shown on that Shawn Michaels DVD set from 2007 though.

DMX was famous for a while.... barking might work for Titus too.

Did anyone else find RAW hard to watch? I swear they have shown the Heyman/Shield backstage video 30 times in the past week. The only thing I've gained from seeing it is more appreciation of Heyman, with him screaming "GET OUT OF THE RING VINCE". That man can work.

Claudio and American Dragon are the only reason I even watch, and by watch most of the time I mean fast forward with the DVR
