"Mediocre" tag teams from yesteryear who'd rule today

Thought of this topic watching a tag team Battle Royal from about 10 years ago. Basically, which tag teams from the past do you think would be a great addition to today's scene? I'm thinking of teams who weren't on top back then, perhaps even just enhancement. From any promotion.

 

A few from me:

 

Too Cool - I think they'd go down a storm these days. Great outfits, great team work and signature spots. I reckon fans would lap it up.

 

T&A - Two massive arse-kickers with a glorious valet. They'd absolutely dominate the tag division these days. Both pretty good big men who could work singles too. They'd be unbeatable.

 

Powers of Pain - Never a top, top team back in the day. They'd be awesome now. Absolutely massive guys who were reasonably athletic, well the Barbarian was anyway. They'd easily dominate the division now, much like T&A. If they had Fuji too, they'd be all set. Only problem might be passing a drugs test.

Royal Rumble 2000 at MSG. Unfortunatly it was the same rumble that nearly most of the men watching stabbed themselve in the eye because of mae young.

Too Cool are the first ones that came to mind here. I really think they'd fit in with the PG era, they were just ridiculously over for a midcard tag team back then. Did they ever win the tag titles? I know Scotty and Rikishi did, but did Scotty and Grandmaster ever get a run with the belts? I didn't watch much WWF back then.

 

Edit: OK, they did. Just checked on Wiki.

Lo Down, Nunzio and Stamboli, Whipwreck and Tajiri, Raven and Saturn.

 

Although none of them were really medicore, just short-lived or were barely used.

 

The first two especially as they all still look pretty decent and could feasibly happen. I'd happily have Tajiri back in an oddball pairing with someone on today's roster.

The Headbangers: A team that had a defined gimmick, a distinct look. From watching them on vintage the other night they seemed quite popular as well. (Although that is comparing to the luke warm reactions of today.

 

Too Cool is a good shout. Just any team that has any sort of gimmick together would be good.
