View Full Version : 8 Most Boring Tag Teams

From WWE.com:

Monday night on Raw, Jerry “The King” Lawler declared Michael McGillicutty & David Otunga the “most boring tag team of all time.” We think they’re The Rockers compared to these eight pairs who, despite in-ring upsides, failed to resonate with fans.

1. Well Dunn
Perfectly proficient grapplers Timothy Well & Steven Dunn were saddled with glam-metal haircuts, lip-printed singlets, bowties and thongs. With all those bells and whistles, they still couldn’t appeal to anyone other than middle-aged women with dirt-low standards.

2. Tekno Team 2000
If you were a kid in the early ’90s, you envisioned a future filled with hoverboards, flying cars and personal jetpacks. WWE had a different vision. It involved silver-clad bros in sleeveless smocks, who claimed to have traveled back in time from the year 2000. Fans didn’t buy it, and these two promising rookies were sent far, far into the cosmos.

3. The Beverly Brothers
As Wayne Bloom & Mike Enos, The Destruction Crew in the AWA, they were among the most respected and feared teams in the business. As Beau & Blake Beverly – two bleach-blond Hollywood transplants (billed from Shaker Heights, OH of all places) – the Tinseltown phonies delivered less thrills than an episode of Rizzoli & Isles.

4. Furnas & LaFon
Debuting at the 1996 Survivor Series (the same show where The Rock hit the WWE scene), these tag team specialists were among the most technically sound Superstars in the world. Unfortunately, their popularity in the Far East – where they captured nearly a dozen Japanese tag team titles – didn’t take with American audiences, who snored through many of their capable, yet uncharismatic, exhibitions.

5. Lo Down
Managed by East Indian aristocrat Tiger Ali Singh, this team united D-Lo Brown (a former WWE European Champion) and Chaz (a former WWE Tag Team Champion), who adopted the personas of bitter Sikh Superstars, complete with turbans, sashes and flowing silk nightgowns. It made us Sikh to our stomachs!

6. The Basham Brothers
It’s hard to imagine these guys are two-time WWE Tag Team Champions, but it’s true. They scored wins over the Guerreros and Rey Mysterio & Booker T before being banished to ECW as Paul Heyman’s ski-masked security goons.

7. The Dicks
As part of their shtick, Chad & James performed a risqué dance prior to each match. All this proved was that they also couldn’t make it as Chippendales.

8. The Gymini
They were twins. Who liked to go to the gym. That’s it.

So do you agree on this list and are there any other teams you would add?

I liked the Bashams. Especially when Eddie beat them lol

I thinkt he tag team of Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole should be up there cause they suck at commentating with each other.

Charlie Hass & Big Daddy V, Kane & Big Show( And I say Kane & Show, because what did they do other than double chokeslam people?) The Steiner Brothers, And 3 count. Even though "3 count" was a stable, I'm still adding them cause the gimmick was annoying.

The Basham's were alright. If I could put one team on the list back in the WWE right now t'would be them.

Gyminni wern't used properly, they should've had a gimmick like the Bella's... doing switcheroo's not the whole you can look but the can't touch thing.

The Dicks...did they ever have a match on Smackdown? I remember them on Velocity tho, they were good but had a crap gimmick.

Other good teams with bad gimmicks include "the Hearthrobs", "The Spirit Squad", AND "Deuce and Domino."

Honorable mention- the Highlanders. They were sooo boring.

um.............

anyway The Bashams were good even the Shaniqiua Gimmick didn't hurt them to much

i'd say teams like Kenzo Suzuki & Rene Dupree derserve to be on the list

The Major Bros, The Edgeheads and Hawkins and Ryder....yes I know they were the same team but they were so dull, wasnt until Ryder went solo that he showed some charisma.

The Beverly Brothers? Are you kidding? They were such a hugely underrated tag teams. Their costumes were a little on the silly side, but they were one of my fave teams back in the day. I loved watching them throw around jobbers...

La Résistance,

Trevor Murdach & Lance Cade (RIP) take the cake. I found nothing they did interesting and really don't know why there were rumors of Murdach returning.

I remember having high hopes for Lo' Down because I was a fan of both D'Lo and Chaz. Gymini was pretty bad, they had a decent look but their gimmick sucked, along with the Simon Dean schtick, why couldn't he just be Nova.

I used to wonder when would D-Lo's head would fall off from all that bobbing.

Hey Rich you didn't like the Gymini? Those guys were the best! *sarcasm* They have the greatest titantron and theme music in the history of the WWE, really you gotta check it out on youtube (please don't do this unless you want to be depressed forever, just being sarcastic lolol) but seriously I did like the basham's a lil bit although they were boring personality wise they were pretty decent in the ring.

Otunga and Mr Not-so Perfect

Poor Mcgillicuty... The WWE won't let him carry the Henning name, He starts off his career botching that promo on NXT (start of The Genesis, HUH? lol) Then he is teamed up with none other than.....David Otunga *deep sigh*? It seems like the WWE has dealt this guy a bad hand Awesome one, whatcha think? I guess it sucks for him too that some people are expecting him to be as good as Mr.PERFECT. Ummmm not gonna happen

Lo Down had some excellent tag team moves and were interesting to watch in the ring. Its not their fault they were given Tiger Singh Ali as a manager and were turned into some sort of Persian tag team when they were a street tag team.

I honesty never liked

Showguns - Billy Gunn and Big Show never worked

Mean Street Posey - Boring as Hell

The New Rockers

Was it the Blu Brothers??? They Hillbilly tagteam from the Mid-nineties

There are a few others also but i honestly cant remember any of their names but just watch mid Nineties Wrestling.

That wasnt the real problem. The fact is it was a very pointless Tag Team. Why give Shane his own faction when there was the Corporation. Whenever Shane wasnt about they made NO sense

Morrison was the whole team. People just don't want to admit it. The dirt sheet, "be jealous", the "star" persona, ring skill. It was all Morrison. That dick magnet the jizz was just along for the ride.
