Daily Discussion: Demolition for WWE’s hall of fame?

Today’s topic: Should Ax and Smash – The Demolition be in WWE’s hall of fame? They held the WWF tag team titles for 478 days in the late 80’s, but continued to be referred to as Legion of Doom rip offs.

    Yes they do deserve the Hall of Fame. Even if a lot of people think they are LOD ripoffs (me included) they still had a huge impact in WWE in that time frame and are still remembered as a top team of their day.

  2. nick says:

    Absolutely! They were the top team in the late 80’s. I can’t see them going in this year if the Outlaws make it though. Both teams are more than deserving, I’d be happy with either one.

  3. Alex says:

    Yes, they did their own thing. To be compared to LoD just gives them that much more of a reason to be inducted.

  4. -J- says:

    Yes they were awesome one of my all time fav tag teams, they should get in for the theme song alone!

  5. nick says:

    @J lmao here comes the axe. And here comes the smasher. The demolition. Walking disaster. Pain and destruction is our middle name! Haha classic!

  6. Jempires One says:

    All guys steal from each other. Demolition not being in the HOF reeks of bitterness over copyrights ala the same types of bitterness that kept mcMahon from putting Backlund in years ago, Savage kept out, Demolition, etc etc.

    They put in guys like Koko B. Ware who never even had a single championship in a major company yet true superstars are excluded for personal reasons.

    Now truly, WWE is running out of major names anyhow. Why they inducted Hogan and Piper in the same year is crazy.

    This year with Foley, Backlund, Sammartino too. This class should of been Sammartino as the headliner. Foley could of waited. Backlund too.

    Pretty soon we’ll have a year with a total joke as a headliner. Sooner than later at this rate. Less and less “superstars” are emerging.

    Because when you try to claim EVERYONE is a superstar, nobody truly end up being one.

    absolutely, they have the longest world tag title reign…a record that most likely will never be broken….they were a great tag team….and had a bad ass theme song

  8. Zachery Badman says:

    HELL!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

  9. Scott says:


  10. JD Storm says:

    they should’ve been put in years ago.

  11. Phil says:

    The absolute greatest team in “W/WWF/E” history..the answer is OF COURSE!!

  12. James says:


  13. MC Live says:

    Definitely. Longest tag team title reign ever. And LOD rip off or not, they got reactions from the WWF fans. They should go in

  14. Meh says:

    Definitely. The Steiner Bros. also deserve to be in the WWE Hall of Fame too.

  15. Denis says:

    You could argue that Axe (Bill Eadie) deserves it on his own just for his work in both Demolition and as the Masked Superstar. Younger fans won’t remember but the Masked Superstar had a great singles career in the Mid-Atlantic and Georgia areas. Look up some of his stuff on youtube. But yeah, they should go in

  16. Greg says:

    Absolutely. They were great workers. I’m surprised they haven’t already been inducted.

  17. Paul says:

    Long overdue for admission! My favorite tag team of all time!

  18. rebel says:

    Yes, of course, but there a quite a few other teams just as if not more deserving.

    @Denis. 100% right about Eadie, who had a few other memorable gimmicks along the way.

  19. Greg says:

    Yes Demolition belongs in the hall of fame, Bill Eadie, Barry Darsow and Bryan Adams were great as a team. Besides what they accomplished as a team, individually Bill Eadie and Barry Darsow had long singles carriers

  20. Joan B. in S. C. says:

    My question is whether WWE would induct them as a twosome or a threesome… Would love to see Mr. Fuji making an appearance in the audience for that one.
