But also there have been a lot of awful and possibly offensive tag-teams that Vince or the WWE creative team had thought of, and today were going to look at them.
Some of them are obscure, some are probably still fresh in your memories. So let's get this starting!
Owen was only in the company for a few months when this team started while this was Koko's last run for his WWF career. You think the two will do great together but WWF just didn't know what to do with them and they've all just been involved in random squash matches.
And their outfits are pretty bad too I might add. Hey I'm no fashion expert here but the color combinations of there wrestling outfit and the chessboard-like colors just don't work. Doink the Clown even had better gear than this!
The team didn't last that long and they did not won any belt together as a team. After this stint Koko would go on wrestle for other promotions and would later on be inducted in WWE's Hall of Fame (quite a shocker!)
While Owen continued to wrestle for the company until the tragic incident.
Anyways if you remember Simon Dean (he wrestled in WWE around 05-07) who's supposed to be this fitness guru gimmick dude who sells his fitness "products" to other wrestlers.
Simon decided to have "models" for his products so in comes; The Shane Twins aka Gymini.
When you think of brother tag-teams, you probably think of The Hardy Boyz,The Valiants,or The Steiner Brothers but never The Gymini. They were legit twin brothers who are actually pretty decent in the ring.
But as always, good ol' WWE decided to put them on a crap gimmick that made them look like Stone Cold or Goldberg wannabes. The gimmick only lasted for 6 months until they were released from the company.
But unfortunately again, they were stuck in a stupid gimmick. They were re-packaged as The Beverly Brothers, who are these heel spoiled rich brats.
As if that wasn't enough, they were managed by "Leaping" Lanny Poffo who got re-packaged as The Genius. He is supposed to be this academic guy who knows-it-all and his a speaker for the team.
The Beverly Brothers had some feuds with other big tag-teams like Natural Disasters and Money Inc. but they never won the tag-team gold. Which seems fine for me!
Deuce and Domino
When Deuce and Domino made their debut there was ZERO reaction from the crowd. Even JBL on commentary was already mocking about the gimmick. Also you've heard of weird hometowns in WWE before but theirs has got to be 2nd weirdest (only behind Damien Demento's); "from the wrong side of the tracks." Really?
Even with their manager; Cherry (who appears with roller skates most of the time) no one cared about her. As you can see from the photo above they won the tag-team belts once but the fans didn't bother.
Well when these guys aren't on WWE yet, they had pretty great success on various Lucha Libre promotions and even on WCW but when WWE decided to recruit them, it just didn't go well.
They were stuck in a very stereotype and racist gimmick. Their entrance would be riding in a big ass lawnmower wearing workers' outfits. Also in their promos they always say that they would like to change everything and make Americans work for Mexicans...yup.
WWE has had a lot of controversial racist gimmicks through the time and this one has got to be one of the worst.
But one that is memorable has got to be the pigfarmers; The Godwinns. So it all started with Henry O. Godwinn who had a decent solo run but never got pushed big so he wanted to find a tag-team partner.
In comes; Phineas I. Godwinn (his kayfabe brother) and they were then managed by Hillbilly Jim. It is a very stereotypical hillbilly/pigfarmer gimmick. Shockingly enough they won the tag-team belts twice but they were more known for throwing bucket of pig slopes to there opponents.
After the tag-team, Henry would retire early soon due to a spine injury. Phineas on the other hand stayed with the WWF and became Mideon as a part of Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness.
Also in case you noticed yet, there names are initials of poultry related stuff:
Henry O. Godwinn = HOG
Phineas I. Godwinn = PIG
Pretty clever but lame :P
Spirit Squad were actually remembered because of the storylines they were involved with DX,WWE Legends like Ric Flair,and even Vince McMahon himself! They had very terrible outfit and have a really bad theme song and entrance. This is just basically pure garbage!
Two of them would then become tag-team champions and shockingly enough they held the belt for 216 days having a longer title reign record than The Road Warriors,Edge and Christian,and The Hardy Boyz. Why WWE, just why?
So when the team got buried thanks to DX a lot of the members fall into obscurity. Kenny Dykstra who claimed to be the biggest name in all of them just became a jobber and would later on be released.
The one who only got successful was Nicky who would later be known as Dolph Ziggler, who I'm sure trying to forget all his memories as a cheerleader!
Billy and Chuck
Billy Gunn who has been a great tag-team specialist being involved in Smoking Gunns and New Age Outlaws who got paired with Chuck Palumbo, a great young talent at the time from WCW. Sounds like they would make a great team right?
The answer is no. Billy and Chuck were instead gotten into probably the most controversial gimmick they did, two homosexual couples. I just don't know what got in there minds to do this?! Oh and to make things worst they were even planned to have a wedding!
Anyway negative comments not only coming from wrestling fans but also from people who don't even watch wrestling, plummeted! WWE then tried to save the situation by stating that they're just heterosexuals afterall.
Luckily it didn't last for too long and I doubt WWE would do something like this again, especially in an PG-rated era.
Tekno Team 2000
Tekno Team 2000 are supposed to be these sci-fi like dudes who supposedly came from the year 2000. Not only they look like they were wrapped in tinfoil but also they don't look nothing like the future at all and their name is just so lame and silly! Tekno Team 2000? That sounds like a guild name for a bunch of kids in an MMO game!
Believe it or not, WWE actually wanted these team to join the ranks of The Road Warriors,Demolition,Mega Powers,or The British Bulldogs but they never a success. They did not managed to win any the tag-team title and even to have any belt at all in their solo runs in the WWE.
The two members are Travis and Troy. Troy is also known as Erik Watts who's the son of "Cowboy" Bill Watts whom you might remember in my Top 10 2nd/3rd Generation Failure wrestlers.
And Travis is Chad Fortune who is now a well known monster truck driver.
Tank Toland who is one of the members of The Dicks has been training with WWE's developmental territory for three years. He is a good technical wrestler that seem to have a future for WWE, and when he finally got the call to go to the main roster, he became this...
Obviously the gimmick was pure trash, two buff men trying to impersonate male strippers who love to oil themselves and rubbing their abs while coming down to the ring. Also their favorite way of stealing victories is blinding their opponents with their baby oil but they don't win that much matches anyway.
Whoever thought of this gimmick was probably a pervert or just plain immature and they think this would be a funny joke that the WWE fans would love, obviously it turns into opposite cause no one gave a damn about these two!
The Dicks didn't last long and only lasted in the main roster for 6 months. It is probably one of the most embarassing gimmicks WWE had and I'm sure not just the wrestlers themselves but everyone in WWE would love to forget this happened...
Took me a while to be able to finish this cause exams are going through my way but hey it's finally done!
Who do you think is the worst tag-team ever? Should someone else be on the list? Leave a comment below.
