Ultimate Formula Tag Teams
By Scott Keith on 22nd November 2022
Hi Scott, hope you are well.
Was listening to a Mick Foley podcast recently, and he mentioned teaming with Goldust in the fall of '96 to do a house match against HBK & Undertaker, which has got to be one of the greatest Face-In-Peril/Hot Tag Guy combinations of all time. Aside from Steamboat & Hogan (they did have at least one match together, right?), what other FIP/HTG combinations have hit that level of formula awesomeness?
A related thought is to think of potential combinations that never happened (to my knowledge), but would have been marvellous. Ricky Morton & a face Nikita Koloff (while he was still jacked up) in JCP comes to mind. Steamboat & Ultimate Warrior could have been another. What say you?
Yeah Warrior is like the greatest hot tag guy of all time, because he spends the whole match getting hyped on the apron and then comes into the match with all three specials charged. I can’t specifically remember it happening but I feel like Bret Hart and Warrior would have been glorious.
