OK, we started taking about it in the RAW thread, so let's continue it...

What were everyone's tag teams for my favorite arcade coin-op game of all time?

I usually went with Perfect and DiBiase, or Perfect and Jake Roberts...



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

No one could beat the tag team of Mr. Perfect and Ted DiBiase... NO ONE!

If I decided to go it alone in a Battle Royal I ALWAYS chose DiBiase. He's probably one of the greatest wrestlers of all time! Well, gimmick-wise anyway...

As I alluded to in the other thread, my favorite team was Perfect/Bossman though on occasion I did use Perfect/Dibiasi or Demolition.

If I was with any amount of friends we'd always play Rumble, and I was ALWAYS Perfect.

It's so true. The PerfectPlex was one of the rare finishing moves that I could do with my patented 'hack the buttons' technique. There was no more tortured wait than the agonizingly slow 1------2------3 count before you could erupt in euphoria and make everyone else in the arcade look at you like you were a goon.

No doubt, eh? Just praying your opponent would lay down diagonal...pick him up...slap on the PerfectPlex or the Million Dollar Dream...and wait for the Hulkster to smash that number down another notch.

I HATED the cage match stage cause I always did so many moves by whipping the opponent off the ropes...

I hope I am remembering the same game. I alwaysed used Savage/Bossman. When you could get all 4 men in, you could do a double team move of a flying lariat/big splash.

If your game had Savage, you're thinking of WWF Superstars.

As far as Wrestlefest, I liked DiBiase and Ultimate Warrior. Something about Warrior's running splash-it was just such an excellent finish to a match.

And at University, we always had enough guys for the Rumble option.

I always picked Hennig, just so I could hear the announcer repeatedly say "Mee-ster Perrr-fect! Mee-ster Perrr-fect!"

    In tag team action, I usually went big with Earthquake (loved the way he hopped around before the vertical splash) and Bossman (the side slam was a nice setup for Earthquake). For variety, I'd sub Dibiase for Bossman, because I loved the call "the MILLION Dollar Dream."

    In the Royal Rumble, it was usually Ultimate Warrior for me. As someone else said, his running splash was a nice way to elimate guys. Also, since it seemed his Irish whips didn't get reversed very often, he allowed me to piss off other players by quickly eliminating them. As soon as they climbed in, I'd whip 'em to the ropes, back myself up to the other side, and backdrop 'em out in about 2 seconds, wasting their quarter. I was such a punk kid.

    Jake Roberts and Ted DiBiase. Jake sets them up with the DDT, then DiBiase finishes them with the Million Dollar Dream.
    I used Roberts/Earthquake a lot too. I loved Quakes vertical splash.
    Mr. Perfect for the Royal Rumble, or DiBiase if I am tired of Perfect.

    Any combination of Jake - Quake - Dibiase - Sgt Slaughter kept me happy and winning... The funny thing is, I won many a match with the Cobra Clutch, yet I never actually saw Slaughter use that move in a real match (certainly not with the bodyslam - head nuggy combination the game had). But still a hell of a lot of fun back in the day

    I only really played the super-old school one. The one where you could only be, like, 6 guys (I think they were Hogan, DiBiase, Bossman, Warrior, Perfect & Savage, but I'm not 100% sure about it).

    I always went with Savage and Bossman, because they were the only ones who could do something the others couldn't. Savage had the flying clothesline (but you would screw it up if you were too near the ropes). And Bossman had the Bossman slam, which you could only do if the opponent was weak enough (otherwise you'd do a backdrop) AND the standing splash into the pin. Bossman Slam - top rope elbow - standing splash for the pin worked every time. Plus he would do the one finger pin if you didn't do the standing splash into the pin.

    Got the number right, but the selection wrong. ::smile:: DiBiase *is* in the game, but as one-half of the "boss" team with Andre the Giant. Perfect isn't in it at all. The other two selectable characters were "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan and The Honky Tonk Man.

    Hacksaw had (of all things) a punch combo to set him apart from the other guys, and HTM had this silly-looking jumping kick that looked like it was lifted out of a ballet sim.

    But, on the plus side, he ALSO had all of the best moves, apart from Macho Man's awesome lariat.

    There *was* a code to play as Dibiase and Andre, or at least there was in the emulated version that I played. I don't know how it would've worked in the arcade version.

    (Oh, and btw... in WrestleFest, as long as I had Jake it didn't MATTER who my partner was. I generally picked DiBiase, solely for the awesome knee-to-the-gut move he had. I got a huge kick out of doing that to Warrior players who thought he was so cool 'cause of his powerslam.)

    Yeah, it was really terrible. ECW has pretty much been a Wrestlemania hype show for the last month, which sucks when before that it had the best wrestling of any of the shows. The Bellas were better than I expected, but that's not saying much.
