We continue our countdown of the 5 teams that competed in the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling area that never held the Mid-Atlantic tag team championships - - but should have. For our explanation of the process and our thinking behind this countdown, visit the original page here.
We are going to spotlight those five teams over the next few weeks, counting down to the number one team we thought should have been given that championship - - but wasn't.
The past two weeks, we selected teams for #5 and #4 in the countdown that were brother teams. This week we make it three brother teams in a row.
NUMBER THREE: Ted and Jerry Oates (1978)
|Ted and Jerry Oates|
DC: The "Oates Brothers" formed an impressive duo in the Mid-Atlantic area in the summer of 1978, and they teamed in the area through early 1979. Ted and Jerry were given a limited push by the promotion, and were a smooth and steady team in the ring. While not dynamic by any means on promos, they could hold their own. On sheer wrestling ability and continuity as a team, the Oates' would have benefited the territory with a run as Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions.
Next time: We look at a dynamic young team that shocked the world when they toppled the world tag team champs on television. Join us in a few days when we take a look at team #2 in our countdown.
The countdown so far:
