The Rock n Roll Express/Midnight Express formula will never tire for me and is up there as what makes tag team wrestling so enthralling. He's also a part of the best tag team match in US History, which only adds to his resume.
He'd make my top 5. I know that's a lock.
His expansive resume. Dude was right on up there with the top stars from the Crockett & early WCW days. Try and compare some careers and Eaton's could hold up or beat quite a bit. Only a few would give him some stiff competition. Those being Flair, Windham, & Arn. This isn't even taking into considering his work prior to Crockett either.
btw, I stumbled onto this result and wondering if you've seen it/any good: One Man Gang & Harley Race beat Andre the Giant & Dick Murdoch (15:00) via DQ.
