Badd Company/Orient Express


Recommended Posts

I don't see this team landing in my top 25. Just not enough top tier stuff. No fault of their own necessarily. I just don't think they were in the right place at the right time sort of thing.


I like a couple of matches in the AWA. At least one against the Rockers and another against the Guerreros. I'll have to revisit a few like the handheld against RNR along with the Patera/Rheingans bout.


Obviously the WWF Royal Rumble match is pretty famous. I like the quick pace of that one. Another I found recently was against LOD on a SNME. They don't get in a lot of offense, still they bump their asses off and make LOD look like a million bucks.


I'll have to check out their cup of coffee in ECW when I get a chance.


Promo wise they always had a manager from what I remember, so I will try not to hold their lack of talking against them.

-Badd Company vs. the Rockers in Memphis (on the Rockers in Memphis comp)

-Jarrett/Smothers/Travis vs. Badd Co./Carl Fergie (this is on the DVDVR set)

-Badd Co. vs. The Bruise Brothers I have a listing for but not sure if it's Memphis or not


I don't have the 1987 set but I'm sure there is more of them on it.


I'm also not necessarily advocating that they make the list, I don't think the body of work is probably going to be there for that.

When I've a bit more time I'll put up listings for their complete run in Memphis. Don't know how much it will add to their case but some interesting looking matches against the likes of the Nasty Boys, Jarrett & Dundee, Jarrett & Travis and Dundee & Rocky Johnson.

These guys were really a huge disappointment to me on the AWA set. I'd read for years about how "great" they were supposed to be and then I finally got to them at the end of the set and I felt really underwhelmed. It's not that they aren't good it's just they really aren't great and I actually thought their Royal Rumble match as The Orient Express was way better than anything I've seen from them as Badd Company. No chance at making my ballot.
