Self evidently an extremely important tag team, but not one that I’ve ever really seen much of. Hell of an aesthetic, but I cant in all good consciousness vote on this one.

Yeah I’m not expectting a huge vote on this one

They’re a 3 for me, an incredible look and gimmick, iconic even… Then they would get in the ring. You can count on one hand how many great matches they’ve had (and its often in multi-man matches or being carried) but fuck me were they over. Bit of a tragic story (the dark side of the ring episode on them is great) and the repackagings were even worse, but I still respect them, hence the 3 Mark.

hated them. was going to give them a 1 but then remembered the existence of the new age outlaws, so they’re at least a 2

That’s just embarrassing in a funny way.

The other day when you mentioned him I went down a wiki vortex again and read about the initial pitch for his character - yikes!
