Match #9 - Edge & Rey Misterio Jr v Raven & Perry Saturn

 

I'd have to go with Edge and Rey because they were involved in quite a few MOTYCs duing that great Smackdown Six run while Raven and Perry only had one great match that I can think of.

 

Match #10 - Eliminators v Shawn Michaels & Diesel

 

Eliminators. Michaels and Diesel were an on-again off-again team that took a backseat to their singles careers.

 

Match #11 - Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Garvin) v Smoking Gunns

 

Smoking Gunns. Both of these teams suck, but I think that the Gunns were actually involved in one good match at some point.

 

Match #12 - Gangstas v Strike Force

 

Strike Force. I don't consider the Gangstas to be wrestlers because New Jack was too dependant on garbage brawling instead of wrestling.

Match #9 - Edge & Rey Misterio Jr v Raven & Perry Saturn

I can only think of one standout match each team had, and I think the No Mercy tag is horribly overrated, but remain a big fan of the Spring Stampede match Raven and Saturn had. For that reason, I'm going with them.

 

Raven & Perry Saturn

 

Match #10 - Eliminators v Shawn Michaels & Diesel

Eliminators were hacks and I hated most of their matches while I can point to the tag against Razor and Kid and call it one of the best WWF matches ever done.

Match #11 - Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Garvin) v Smoking Gunns

Hayes and Garvin were horrible, horrible, horrible. The Gunns weren't even really good, but they were decent, and they got a lot of shit at the time that they didn't fully deserve.

 

Smoking Gunns

 

Match #12 - Gangstas v Strike Force

Easy choice. Strike Force were a good tag team that had good matches with a variety of teams. The Gangstas? Not so much.

Match #9 - Edge & Rey Misterio Jr v Raven & Perry Saturn

 

Tough call here. Both teams didn't have much in the way of long runs. Edge & Rey may have had more quality matches, but I don't think a lot of the Smackdown Six matches are/were as great as many people remembered them being. Raven & Saturn still have their match with Benoit & Malenko to their credit, though. I'll go with Raven & Saturn, because both Edge & Rey have been on more significant tag teams than when they were with each other, while Raven & Saturn, as a team, may arguably have been both guys' peaks as far as tag team wrestling goes, including the days of the Eliminators.

 

Raven & Perry Saturn

 

Match #10 - Eliminators v Shawn Michaels & Diesel

 

Going with the Eliminators here, even though I'm not a huge fan of the team (I like their finisher, but not much else after that). My choice here is how HBK & Diesel managed to bury the titles when they had them and never lost them, IIRC. That seems to happen a lot on Kevin Nash tag teams. Eliminators matches in ECW were never great, but they never shat on their tag division either.

Match #11 - Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Garvin) v Smoking Gunns

 

Neither of these two teams do anything for me (this version of the Freebirds is a joke compared to the original three). Not a big of fan of Bart and Billy, but they win out here because they had a decent run from '93 to '96. I'll take the team that had a decent run over a team that almost completely killed a revolutionary gimmick in wrestling from the late 70s and 80s.

 

Smoking Gunns

 

Match #12 - Gangstas v Strike Force

 

Strike Force, easily. Santana and Martel blow away both Gangstas as far as work goes, and had some decent->good matches as well. Definitely not a fan of Mustafa, and New Jack is absolute farce to the wrestling world.

Match #9 - Edge & Rey Misterio Jr v Raven & Perry Saturn

 

Saturn and Raven. I always liked how they worked together and Eddy and Rey weren't really together long enough

 

Match #10 - Eliminators v Shawn Michaels & Diesel

 

HBK and Nash. The Eliminater were good spot workers but they're was never any substance to their matches.

 

Match #11 - Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Garvin) v Smoking Gunns

 

The Freebirds. I hate the Smoking Gunns.

 

Match #12 - Gangstas v Strike Force

 

Strike Force. New Jack was a better talker than either Martel or Tito but Strike Force's work was way better.

Raven & Perry Saturn

 

I never felt like Edge and Rey were a real team.

 

Eliminators

 

You know why.

 

Fabulous Freebirds (Hayes & Garvin)

 

In a battle of the bland and useless, FF win for having Hayes to talk for them.

 

Strike Force
