Marty Jannetty vs. Shawn Michaels
These two guys made up what was arguably the greatest tag team in wrestling history. Known as the Rockers, Michaels and Jannetty carved up the rest of the tag team wanna-be’s like a turkey at Thanksgiving, and they didn’t leave any leftovers. In other words…they were good.
Unfortunately for wrestling fans however, this duo suffered the fate of many other duos that came before them. Just like Hall & Oates, Wham and the Judds, one of the partners decided that they were the real talent in the duo and struck off on their own.
In the case of the Rockers, it was Shawn Michaels who decided that Jannetty was holding him back, so he left to go out on his own. The two went back and forth at each other through various partners and had some head to head battles, usually ending in Michael’s securing the victory. Jannetty got the short end of the stick overall, but I bet he was ringside the night the undertaker retired his former partner. Just a guess…
