Re-ranking WWE's 50 greatest tag teams

#21 The Nasty Boys

Sure, they cribbed their name from a Janet Jackson dance single, but there was nothing bubblegum about the mohawk mullets and motorcycle boots of Jerry Sags and Brian Knobbs. As sloppy as a double cheeseburger and proud of it, the toothless palookas from Allentown, Pa. lived up to their reputation as wrestling’s bad boys as they cussed out the WWE Universe while smushing their armpits in opponents’ faces during an early '90s run with WWE.

“They were like bulls in a china shop,” WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart told “You didn’t know what they were going to come up with next.” The Hit Man should know. At WrestleMania VII, Sags went upside Jim Neidhart’s skull with manager Jimmy Hart’s superfluous motorcycle helmet to beat The Hart Foundation for the World Tag Team Titles. Plenty of teams fought dirty. Few did it better than The Nasties. — R.M.
