Road Warriors vs. Four Horsemen: The 2016 TWB Tag Team Tournament Turmoil FINAL

The last teams standing

The time for pretenders has ended. The last two major contenders for the crown of TWB Tag Team Tournament Turmoil are left standing. In one corner is one-half of arguably the greatest stable in the history of professional wrestling. In the other is a team that defined badassery across three different promotions in two decades. They faced stiff challenges from other great teams along the way. In parallel universes, they might have been eliminated in favor of other great teams like the Young Bucks, the Dudley Boys, the Steiner Brothers, or the Rock 'n Roll Express. But the Four Horsemen (or the Brainbusters if you will) and the Road Warriors (or the Legion of Doom, if that's your thing) are the last two teams standing. Road Warrior Hawk. Road Warrior Animal. "The Enforcer" Arn Anderson. Tully Blanchard. It's time to go.
