Powers of Pain...
Warlord and Barbarian were 2 powerhouses. You know, the face paint, Mr. Fuji, and the cane?
I would've said the rockers for my first pick, but they did win the titles, just not officially for the record books.

I'm going with the Mega Powers.
For those that don't know. The Mega Powers were a tag team consisting of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. The two biggest stars in the WWF at the time in 1988. Savage won the Heavyweight Title at WM IV (in '88) and he and Hogan formed the Mega Powers shortly after when Miss Elizabeth (Randy's manager and future wife) brought Hogan to the ring to help Randy ward of a double team attack by a heel tag team (who's name escapes me). The Mega Powers were unstoppable by anyone, well, except for themselves. A hugh misunderstanding caused in part by the Twin Towers tag team (Akeem - One Man Gang and Big Boss Man) and a ton of jealousy sent Savage into a rage at a Saturday Night's Main Event (on NBC), leading him to attack Hogan thus ending their team. If only Randy hadn't noticed Hogan looking at Miss Elizabeth with lust in his eyes, The Mega Powers were sure to have won the tag belts from then tag champs Demolition.
But that was never to be and all cause Hogan couldn't keep his eyes off Miss Elizabeth.

They were more of a collabo then a tag team. Sure, Macho Man and Hulk woulda looked great in gold, as a tag team, but Mr. Fuji woulda wooped Miss Elizabeth's arse into shape with the cane. R.I.P Liz.. she was a hottie. #80's #crush If your scenario was a true case, I'd argue that Tugboat and the Hulkster shoulda got it early 90's, or Hulk and Hillybilly Jim were acceptable.
Barbarian is the most underrated wrestler in 'rastling history. Warlord, he was a mammoth goliath like figure.
my next pick....
The Killer Bees
double drop kick in yo face!

The Mega Powers weren't a collaboration. You're confusing what the WWE does today with what happen back in the day.
Ms. Elizabeth would've hit Fuji over the head with her shoe. Even the evil Mr. Fuji wouldn't have hit a girl, would he?
The Mega Powers lasted as a tag team longer than some teams do today. I don't remember Hogan even tagging with Tugboat. And Hogan trained Hillbilly Jim. They only tagged a few times. Hillbilly mainly tagged with his cousin and uncle. Plus I believe Tugboat and Hillbilly happened in the early 90's and not late 80's but I could be wrong.
Barbarian's team with Ming/King Tonga was much better than the Powers of Pain. Warlord was big and nothing else. The ring outfits WWF put the Power of Pain in were just bad. Antlers and a trident, please!!!
I'm with you on the Killer Bees. I never understood why the Killer Bs never got the title. Masked Confusion was always good for a win. Maybe cause the Iron Sheik was always humbling B Brain Blair?????

I think I can sway Yoda's vote with this one. lmao
Just messin, Yodester.
The Fabulous Rougeaus
These two played heel to the max. They were like two bugs that fly around your head, you just wanted to smack them. Remember the Mountie?
This is where he started, WWF style!

I'll go with some HOF'ers for my third pick.
Rowdy Roddy Piper and ?.
There are two choices for his partner from the late 80's. Both HOF'ers! The Ace 'Cowboy' Bob Orton or Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff. Either one would've been great as Piper's tag team title partner. Piper and Orndoeff headlined WM1. Wonderful took the pin causing a breakup with Piper and a feud with Piper and Cowboy Bob.
Edge brought up Cowboy Bob who is Randy Orton's father on Raw this week. For those that don't know/remember, Cowboy Bob hurt his arm in the mid-80's and wore a cast on his arm for about the next 5 years or so. Bob used the cast as a weapon to win matches and that was how Piper and Orndorff lost their WM1 match. Bob went to hit Mr. T who ducked and Bob hit Mr. Wonderfull who then got pinned.
Piper won the tag title in 2006 with fellow HOF'er Ric Flair by beating the Spirit Squad at Cyber Sunday.
Piper shouldn't have had to wait until 2006 to win a tag title in WWE.
