We're down to 8! Who is the best tag team of the 1980s? Cast your votes for the TCW title

This post was originally published on this site

Pandemonium broke loose last week as we pitted 16 of the greatest tag teams of the 1980s against each other to determine the absolute best of the era.

The winner will take home the Tim Championship Wrestling Tag Team Titles, or TCW for short. (Prestigious, I know!)

Sixteen teams have been whittled to 8. Four more votes lies ahead. Voting will be open until Wednesday, March 22, at 11 p.m.

Here are the results from the first week:

Quadrant 1

Road Warriors, Freebirds set to duel

The Road Warriors soundly defeated the Islanders.

Animal and Hawk were able to get Haku and Tama in the Doomsday Device and take the 1-2-3.

They won with an overwhelming 98 percent of the vote.

Great tag teams of the 1980s: The Road Warriors and the Fabulous Freebirds

The Road Warriors’ next opponent will be the Fabulous Freebirds.

The Freebirds held off the Midnight Express to gain the victory. They garnered 60 percent of the vote.

Michael Hayes clearly has the hairiest chest of any of the competitors remaining in the tournament. However, even if he has both of his partners — Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy — it might be tough for the trio to take down the impressive Road Warriors.

Quadrant 2

Hart Foundation, Steiner Brothers set for battle

The Hart Foundation may have lost to the Killer Bees in 1986, but this time they applied the Hart Attack to score the victory over B. Brian Blair and Jumping Jim Brunzell.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart rolled with 94 percent of the vote.

Great tag teams of the 1980s: The Hart Foundation and the Steiner Brothers.

They will face Rick and Scott, the Steiner Brothers, who powered their way past the Rock N Roll Express. They claimed 77 percent of the vote.

Will head gear and barking like a dog be enough to propel the Steiners past the Harts, or will the Pink and Black Attack continue their run for the title?

Quadrant 3

Demolition, Von Erich Brothers fracas lies ahead

Luke and Butch came so close to scoring the upset, but Smash kicked out and Ax completed the Demolition Decapitation to score the win.

Demolition took 57 percent of the close vote.

Great tag teams of the 1980s: Demolition and the Von Erich Brothers.

They will take on the Von Erich Brothers, who were neck-and-neck throughout the competition, but eked by with 53 percent of the vote

In the end, the Dream Team of Greg “the Hammer” Valentine and Brutus “the Barber” Beefcake thought they kicked out but the referee didn’t see it as his hand came down for the 3-count, and the Von Erichs triumphed.

The winner has a tough road ahead as they get ready to face the Walking Disaster. Demolition. They better say their Act of Contrition!

Quadrant 4

British Bulldogs, Brain Busters set for battle

The British Bulldogs banished the Iron Shiek and Nikolai Volkoff back to their homelands with a resounding victory.

Davey Boy Smith’s running power slam netted 74 percent of the vote.

Great tag teams of the 1980s: The British Bulldogs and the Brain Busters.

The Bulldogs will face the Brain Busters of Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard.

They defeated the Rockers.

Shawn Michaels and Marty Janetti still can’t get it together. It’s no wonder Michaels left Janetti on the scrap heap. He had enough of that ham-and-egger.

Anderson and Blanchard culled 62 percent of the vote.

Next week we’ll be down to the Frightening Four. Stay tuned to TCW for more!
