In terms of WWE championship wins there are many more decorated teams, but in terms of pure energy, fan power, and selling ability the Legion of Doom are seen by many fans to be the greatest tag team of all-time. The energy they could put into a crowd was & still is unrivalled by any tag team I’ve ever seen. They had already seen big success before even stepping foot into the then WWF in the way of working all over the world as the Road Warriors.
Once they arrived in the WWF it was like a big electric boost that set the place on fire. The fans went crazy every time LOD came out to the ring, nowhere was the pop more deafening than at Wembley Stadium for the 1992 SummerSlam where Animal & Hawk opened the show to over 80,000 screaming fans.
Due to personal problems the Legion of Doom perhaps didn’t ever hit the success in terms of titles won or longevity but the fact many still call them the greatest team ever despite these failings proves just what an unbelievably good team LOD were in my opinion. Here now is a run-down of what I believe were Animal & Hawks greatest ever moments while within the WWF/E and while these moments & matches seem so long ago now they never lose that buzz factor that could only come from a LOD entrance, match, or post match celebration.
Hearing those deep words from Hawk just before the Legion of Doom took to the ring gave fans in the crowd and at home watching on TV a tremendous rush of excitement. The words “OH WHAT A RUSH!!!!” Are written in pro wrestling history along with the devastating finishing maneuver the Doomsday Device. I’ve taken myself down memory lane and here’s what I personally believe to be, The Top 10 Greatest WWE Moments Of The Legion of Doom.
