They fought the Hart Foundation more than once. They also wrestled The Bulldogs and The Rockers in some incredible matches. IIRC, they had some good work against The Strike Force, as well (not their WM match).

They had a 4-5 month title reign in '89 and were the first Tag Team to hold the Tag Titles in both major organizations.

Bad list. They should have the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers, Furnas & Lafon, Public Enemy, and the Dream Team on it. The Bulldogs should be #1. Oh, and they used a picture of the Can-Am Connnection in place of Strike Force.

Legacy is too high.

DX and Road Warriors are too low.

I'd put both Air Boom and Hell No in there before I put Miz/Morrison on the list.

First thing I thought of when I saw Strike Force was "Where's the Can-Am Connection?"

No, that was Rick Martel and Tito Santana they showed. Correct picture.

Public Enemy's tenure in WWF was a joke (they got shot on in one match against APA), and as good as Furnas and Lafon could have been, they did nothing to merit being on the list. Good call on Valentine and Beefcake, that was a big team in their time.

Seriously, they lasted like six months.

I just thought of them, didn't mean they should be on the list. Although they were pretty much Strike Force 1.0.

The Dream Team was mentioned in the writeup for one of the other teams, so I was kinda surprised that they weren't on there somewhere.

Ca-Am Connection lasted about 8-months, but they were together for well over a year. Just that they formed in the AWA before coming to WWF.

Strike Force was together for about 1 1/2 years, but Martel was "injured" for a good chunk of that.

McMahon loved Martel - he wanted to do a lot bigger things with him, but Martel lost his face when he lost his brother in wrestling. I think he basically wrestled because he knew how, he loved it, and as honor to his brother. But I don't think he dedicated himself as much to it because of that. He always wanted to get out and do something else. That's why he'd be around for 6-months and then gone or 6-months, etc, etc.

That is Tom Zenk on the left and Rick Martel on the right.

That's Tito. Zenk wasn't that scrawny (and he didn't have a face like Tito Santana). The tiny bit of lightning bolt you can see on Martel's trunks was during Strike Force anyway, not CAC.
