New Age Outlaws' Cageside Evaluation

Their name is the New Age Outlaws and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WWE Tag Champions. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. Intro - You guys know how it goes by now, and it was awesome.
  2. Chemistry - They worked perfectly together, a true 90s tag team dedicated to the division.
  3. DX - An integral part of the group.
  4. Over - Just go watch some videos of them in their prime, crowds popped hard when Billy Gunn and Road Dogg showed up.
  5. Hide Weaknesses - Billy was bad on the mic, Road Dogg covered that. Road Dogg wasn't great in the ring, Billy covered that.

"LLLLLLLadies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages. D-Generation X proudly brings to you it’s six-time WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WWWWWOOOOOOORRRRRRRLLLLLLDDDDDDDD!!!!!!"


What you loathed:

  1. TNA Run - See: 4Live Kru, The James Gang, and Voodoo Kin Mafia.
  2. 2014 Return - It was nice seeing the New Age Outlaws come back for one night, but then they kept coming back.
  3. Singles' Run - See: The Roadie, Mr. Ass. These two needed each other.
  4. Dated Look - It's 2014 and they look exactly the same.
  5. In-Ring - Bit of a mixed bag on this one, but some of you were not fans of their work inside the ring.

"Them. I may be ruffling feathers in taking a contrarian stance, but I never liked the Outlaws. I loved tag team wrestling, and grew up with the Hart Foundation, Demolition, and the Road Warriors. Going into the Attitude Era, I’d been spoiled with the Eliminators and the Dudleys in ECW. I hated the Outlaws. It was just another case of two fair-to-middling guys thrown together. They made it purely on Road Dogg’s mic skills, and the association with DX. They didn’t have the same look, they didn’t have a double-team finisher, and I never felt they complemented one another well. (And no, one guy pointing to another guy’s crotch doesn’t count as complementing one another.) Road Dogg could talk and Billy could bump. That’s it. Aside from their Dumpster Match with Cactus and the Funker, I can’t tell you one memorable match they had as a team. And they started the ugly trend of random pairings holding the tag team titles that wasn’t broken until Edge & Christian, the Hardys, and the Dudleys. I just never got into these guys, and they’re still doing the same tired crap 15 years later minus the swearing. It was fun while it lasted, but anyone who puts them in the pantheon of all-time great tag teams clearly hasn’t watched enough wrestling."

On to the poll! With 235 votes, the New Age Outlaws' average score is 3.7.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick was a former WWE Intercontinental champion.

Until then!
