    I would have voted for The Eliminators if they were on the list to choose from but I guess they're too underrated to even be on your list. I just saw a great match from 1996 that was a 3 way tag match with The Gangstas defending the ECW tag team titles against The Eliminators and the team of Sabu and RVD.

    Hmm Booker t and goldust were my favourite but I don't feel like they're underrated. Went with natural disasters. Hard list.

    APA. Everyone wants to gush over E&C, Hardyz and Dudleyz back in the late 90s and early 2000s but the Acolytes were fucking badass.

    Yep. They were playing the Japanese strong style "big tough american" tag team but in the WWE. Reminiscent of the Miracle Violence Connection, Brody/Hansen, Gordy/Hansen, etc.

    I voted Hollywood Blondes but would have gone with Faces of Fear if they were on here.

    Realistically and logically, there are really on three tag teams that could be viewed as underrated and they are the Bushwackers and Headshrinkers. Nearly all the other teams were booked as make-shift tag teams, last minute tag teams, and/or tandems that didn't last longer than 2 or 3 years at best.

    The Headshrinkers had a long history before entreing the WWF circa 1992. They were the Samoan Swat Team which performed very well together and won titles everywhere they went except for JCP/WCW. Many don't even know who the Headshrinkers/SST are and that alone makes them deserving for the title of being underrated.

    The Bushwackers were a joke of a team in the WWF, mainly inserted to put others over but if you go back to their Kiwi and Sheepherder days, these guys were vicious wrestlers who could work and brawl with the best of them. They wrestled in nearly every territory across the globe and captured tag titles everywhere they went until they came to the WWF in '88/'89. Their active, full time careers also spanned 30 years and that alone puts them at the top of any list. Add the titles, their actual in-ring abilities, their versatility and you have, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most underrated tag team of all time.

    i saw the wwf turn so many guys i loved in the mid south into jokes. for some it was better for them, others not so much.

    guys that acted serious before being turned into clown acts:

    - Sheepherders
    - Terry Taylor
    - Koko B. Ware
    - Jim Duggan
    - Ted Dibiase
    - Jake Roberts

    off the top of my head from the short time i saw them in mid south. with roberts and dibiase, it was obviously the right move for the wwf and the guys. Jim Duggan as well I guess. But of all of them, i only preferred the wwf version of dibiase

    Voted Hollywood Blondes, but @GSPSAKU pointed out, the Sheepherders were a damn good team before WWE ruined them. Thier barbed wire cage match with the Fantastics (another underrated team) was brutal.

    What about the Gangstas in Smokey Mountain Wrestling? That set up New Jack and D-Lo Brown for their ECW and AE careers.

    oh really? i had no idea. i just remember him being a straight forward tough ex football player in mid south then coming to wwf and being borderline retarded. he was actually my 2nd favorite wrestler in the mid south (behind master g) because he looked EXACTLY like my step dad at the time. in fact he looked so much like him that his son (my half brother) actually thought it was him on the tv. he was about 5-6 at the time.

    i guess they had to take the focus on the physical stuff then

    Cornette talks about Duggan’s gimmick on this week Drive-Thru’s IIRC.
