WWF Accolade: Tag Team Champions (uncredited)

This tag team consisted of a budding Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty who wrested together from 1985 to 1992. In 1987 they made one WWF appearance as the Midnight Rockers but were immediately fired by Vince for excessive partying. They’re rockers, what did he expect? They got a second chance in 1988 and went on regular rotation as The Rockers, dropping “Midnight” but thankfully the mullets were a mainstay. In 1990 they wrestled The Hart Foundation for the tag team title and won – then defended their title a month later against Power & Glory. Shortly after the tag team title was reverted back to The Hart Foundation with the explanation that a ring malfunction voided the match. Michaels claims it was all real life Hart Foundation politics and the WWE has never official recognized them as champions.
