Forgotten Legends102: Demolition
This team holds the record for Single longest tag team reign and combined reign and were probably the most dominant team barring L.O.D during their 4 year run.
Consisting of Ax, Smash and Crush managed by Mr.Fuji. Inspired by the Mad Max series, they debuted as dominant heels in Superstars quickly gaining notoriety for their aggressiveness and domination of opponents which involved show of power and strength. They went on to beat all the teams that were available and worth mentioning incl. British Bulldogs, Islanders, Young Stallions among others rising up the ranks.
They first beat Strike Force to win their WWF world tag title run going on to continue their domination on feuds against Bulldogs and Hart Foundation before facing their first serious challenge, Powers of Pain who brought about their face turn. It took the team of Horsemen, known as Brain Busters, Arn Anderson and Tully Blunchard to end their tag title run. They feuded with Twin Towers before winning back the titles from the guys they lost it to trading it with Colossal Connection.
With Ax having health issues, Crush was added to the team and they started using Freebird rules but subsequently Ax left the team for the same reason. The beat Rockers but eventually lost the title to Hart Foundation ending their tag title run with face interference from L.O.D signalling the beginning of their decline.
The four year run they had, they had beaten every team that mattered and was in the promotion including teams with future main eventers like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, British Bulldog and legends like Andre the Giant, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Ultimate Warrior among others.
Inspite of being one of the most dominant teams and having the longest individual and combined title reigns, they remain forgotten, but legends.
