TAGTEAM - Rowdy Roddy Piper and Jesse "The Body" Ventura (1991)

Here's a real Saturday Night Special for you!
 A Tag Team match featuring "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Jesse "The Body" Ventura vs. All The Bad Guys On The Streets!

"Tagteam" is an unsold 1991 pilot TV show that never made the light of day for various reasons!

My opinion is they should have made this a three man tag team, because "Tagteam" reminds me of an updated "Three Stooges" episode! That being said.......

Let's get bready to crumble!

We got a good crowd for tonight's match!

 Look at the depth of character these two guys have!

They can go from one mood to another just like that!

This is a pretty crappy print I found, and it's hard enough to get good screen captures of action scenes, so I feel pretty good about shots like this!

This just might be one of the greatest shots of tag team wrasslin' ever! 

They play the whole thing legit, so the boys get fired because they won't throw the match!
And you probably thought that wrestlers have no morals, well you're wrong!
Roddy and Jesse have higher standards than that!

They are forced to go out into the real world to find work!

They are complete failures at being piano movers!

Here's a pensive portrait of Jesse Ventura!

Being attack dog dummies in a ladies self defense class didn't exactly work out for them either!

The pair get then involved in breaking up a grocery store robbery!

That's when they get the bright idea that they should become cops!

Next stop, the police academy!

Somehow the two stooges manage to graduate, and the next thing you know, they're legally throwing people out of windows!

Tabonga and I were raised on cartoons, wrasslin' and Three Stooges, so I actually kind of liked this show, even as silly as it is!

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Jesse "The Body" Ventura were always two of my favorite wrasslers, so I wish this show would have made it, but it's too late now.
Roddy Piper passed away in 2015 at the age of 61! Probably his best film was "They Live" from 1988!
Ex-Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura is still kickin' it, and went on to be in such classics covered on this site as "Predator," "The Running Man," and "Abraxas, Guardian Of The Universe!"
