The Road Warriors/Legion of Doom
1) Ring Entrance - The guys came to the ring, sometimes slow and methodical, but usually running like hell, to kick the sh*t outta their opponent, before the ring announcer intro, to the sounds of OZZY/Black Sabbath - Iron Man and/or the ahhhhhhh, What a Rush from HAWK!
2) Appearance - They were a first of their kind...war paint, spikes, shoulder pads, black and red, muscular and menacing look.
3) Original (often imitated, never imitated) Teams and individuals followed the Warriors with make-up, intimidation and metal music. They laucnched some careers of big names and saved career of others trying a similar "gimmick". The Bladerunners were the spandex wearing make-up wearing muscle boys from California...Mandingo Warrior and Blade...later known as the Ultimate Warrior and Sting. Demolition was WWF's copy of the Road Warrriors. Smash once performed as Repo-man and Krusher Kruschev while Axe was once the NWA US Champion as the Masked Superstar.
4) Multiples (titles, organizations, opponents and feuds) The Road Warriors won traditional, 6-man, 8-man titles in the AWA, NWA, WCW & WWE against some of the best tage teams in the world, faces and heels, as faces and heels. As heels, they were still cheered because of their precense and awesomeness...whatta rush. They defeated and defended against the Horsemen, The Fabulous Freebirds, Demolition, Steiners, Varsity Club, Kevin Sullivan's Dungeon, Russians, Rock n Roll and Midnight Express, Dudleys, Nasty Boys, and more.
5) Paul Ellering - the 1st educated, intellectual, well spoken manager, that discovered, promoted and developed the team from the beginning. Precious Paul stayed outta the way, most of the time, not interferring to win matches like JJ Dillon, Sherri Martell, Jim Cornette, Mr Fuji, Bobby Heenan and Captain Lou.
Where there is my vote...submit your team and come back Saturday and vote.
