Allied Powers: The World’s Greatest Tag Teams DVD (3 Discs)


Silvervision.co.uk is the only place to get this DVD this Summer!

Throughout the years, fans of sports entertainment have enjoyed the controlled chaos of tag-team wrestling. Many present and future Hall of Fame Superstars have been part of a popular duo, including Shawn Michaels (The Rockers), Bret “Hit Man” Hart (The Hart Foundation) and Jeff and Matt Hardy (The Hardy Boys). Some Superstars will forever be remembered for their incredible impact as a team, including The Road Warriors, The Fabulous Freebirds and The Midnight Express. Some teams were a result of the unique, temporary pairing of two singles Superstars, including The Mega Powers (Hulk Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage), and D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels).

Allied Powers: The Worlds Greatest Tag Teams honours all the greatest duos in sports entertainment history, complete with matches from WWE, WCW, NWA, AWA, WCCW and Championship Wrestling from Florida. Packed with profiles of more than 20 historical tag teams and events and 25 tag-team matches, Allied Powers: The Worlds Greatest Tag Teams gives fans twice the excitement, twice the action and twice the drama.

?


FINALLY a DVD worth shouting about (and I mean form the rooftops!) This extensive three disc set is possibly the BEST DVD the WWE have ever had the sense to put together (for me anyway!) as I am a HUGE fan of the often neglected Tag Team Division!
If I were to do my usual review technique and go through this set match by match I wouild be here for days so instead Im going to talk about a few of my favourite moments of the discs as I watch them, including the choice of The Miz and John Morrison as hosts of this tribute to the tag teams! These guys are fresh and entertaining and I loved their skits between the clips as they sit displaying their prized ‘Slammy’ awards & looking like they are enjoying their job!! (And some people have said ‘anoying’ PAH!), although.. ‘Chuck Norris Of Nookie’?


Moving on…


The Outstanding Aerial Achievement by a Tag Team segment was an eye opener to a youngblood like myself as Id never heard of teams like the Killer Bees and The Fantastics! But of course I marked out for the next section on the Hardy Boys! Awesome montage of the boys and some of their best moments and then the match between The Hardys accompanied by Michael Hayes and The Brood (E&C) accompanied by Gangrel at King Of The Ring in 1999 which is a refershing change to see on these compilation DVD’s as they almost always go for the more obvious of matches between these two amazing tag teams!


Michael Hayes pops up in the next segment too in the form of the Fabulous Freebirds who, as Morrison and Miz inform us before the clip, were the first team to make their entrance to the ring to popular music! Their ‘Country Whippin’ Tag Team match against the Von Erich’s in WCCW is then shown (And Im astounded there is only a piece of string separating the audience from the ring!) Certainly the first time I’ve heard of a Country Whippin’ match!


Good to see MNM In the ‘Honorable Mentions’ section as I was a BIG fan of those guys! As for Chuck and Billy being in there… Im not so sure about that one. Hollywood Blondes just makes me so sad that we didnt get to see more of Brian Pillman! Others mentioned are the APA, who I actually was a fan of considdering how much I detest Bradshaw, and the Nasty Boys, leading to Public Enemy vs. Nasty Boys at the SuperBrawl VI pay per view on February 11, 1996.


Of course I was eager to fast forward to the next section on disc one, The Rockers! Marty Janetty and Shawn Michaels HAD to be included on this dvd and I truely believe they helped elevate the tag team division and shape a lot of the young tag teams of the 90’s & 2000’s! After a short montage we see The Rockers vs Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson (the Brain Busters) at MSG in 1989. One I hadn’t seen too! Thank you WWE!


And So, on to Disc 2.


And it is SO Wrong that the first mark-out moment for me on this disc was a tiny clip of La Resistance!! Yes Im hanging my head in shame!


As much as it pains me to say it I CAN understand why The Dudley Boyz have their own section on this DVD. They were one of the Attitude Era’s best tag teams along with Edge & Christian, The Hardys and guys like the APA. The Steel Cage Unification Tag Match from Survivor Series 2001 was great to see again and a bonus as their opponents were The Hardy Boyz!


The Tribute To The Classics section features short montages on The Texas Outlaws (you can definatly see where Cody got his looks from!!), Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens, The Wild Samoan’s, The Blackjacks, & Ray Stevens & Nick Bockwinkel, leading to a rather tame match between Nick Bockwinkel & Ray Stevens vs. Red Bastien & Billy Robinson from AWA All Star Wrestling December 1972.


Finally we get to our hosts favourite section, the one about The Miz & John Morrison! ‘The Greatest Tag Team Of The 21st Centruy’ and a very funny and self centred intro from the guys themselves! Awesome montage leading to an equally awesome match between these two ego maniacs and Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio from Raw on 17th November last year (’08). I personally think their match against DX was better from the 800th Raw, but I guess they had to get the kiddies favourite on here at some point. (and of course Im never going to comaplin about watch Shawn Michaels whatever he’s doing!)


The BEST bonus feature has to be the ‘Cutting Room Floor: Los Conquistadors’ segment but.. IT WASNT LONG ENOUGH! I laughed my a$$ off but was highly disapointed that it was a short short montage of funnies! Also loved The Rock & Sock Connection ‘The Break Up’, The Miz & Morrison “Mizfits & Mofos” Music Video (how they did that with a straight face is beyond me I’d love to see the outtakes!) and DX & The Meaning Of Controversy from Cyber Sunday 2006.



There are a LOT of extras on this disc.. as if the DVD was jam packed to the hilt as it was!


?


Disc Three kicks off the best way possible.. with Edge & Christian of course! ‘Reeking Of The Most Awesomeness’ and possibly my favourite tag team EVER, this DVD blesses me with the very first wrestling match that I ever took notice of, TLC from Summerslam 2000. I remember trying so hard not to get hooked and by the end of this match… well Im still here aren’t I? This section is most definatly for me personally, the best on the whole DVD set! The match hasn’t gotten any less exciting and I must have seen it ten times since the first time! I still get goosebumps watching this one and Im still in awe that these guys can put their bodies through that and get up and walk out at the end of it all!


Love Miz & Morrison’s impression of the New Age Outlaws entrance music! Never a huge fan of Road Dogg or Billy Gunn for that matter but very happy to see their match against The Rock n’ Sock Connection from Armageddon in 1999!


The ‘Blockbuster Tag Teams’ section features montages on The Rock ‘n’ Sock, Lex Luger & Sting. Randy Savage & Hulk Hogan (The MegaPowers), D-Generation X, and Rated RKO: Randy Orton & Edge! I had wondered when they were going to bring those guys up and much to my delight… this leads to DX Vs Edge & Randy Orton from Cyber Sunday in 2006! Happy Days!


Los Guerreros! How fantastic to have these guys on this disc albeit facing Benjaim and Haas! Im just happy that Eddie and Chavo have been included, although it looks as though the focus is on WGTT and not the Guerreros whish is a shame! Eddie is still such a huge miss in the WWE today and Im at a loss as to why WGTT is featured when Los Guerreros are not.


Of course these three discs feature SO much more than I have time to talk about in this review. From old school to the present day, it’s amazing to see how many tag teams are mentioned, considdering as I’ve said previously, this division is often overlooked. Bring back the good old days of tag team wrestling that’s what I say! And Bring back Miz & Morrison! They’re awesome! Be Jealous!
