Although their tenure in the WWE was relatively short, the duo ran through competition, aptly fulfilling what they were called. However, many things in hindsight end up not being as good as it seemed. Demolition just may fall in that category.
Axe and Smash both had popular gimmicks before they became a team. For Axe, he teamed with WWE Hall of Famer Andre the Giant as The Machines, in an attempt to hide Andre's identity from Bobby Heenan. For Smash, he was a Russian sympathizer in the NWA as Krusher Khruschev, teaming with Ivan and Nikita Koloff. However, when Demolition debuted, it was something completely different than before.
Yes, Demolition was intimidating, and their "Decapitator" finishing move always had the risk of being more severe than it looked, but the team overall was not very impressive in the ring. Granted, top names like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant and Ultimate Warrior were not your model wrestling technicians, but at least they had enormous charisma and/or physical stature. Demolition had a stature that looked impressive, but were not very athletic.
Regardless, Demolition has left their mark in wrestling history as a dominant tag team. There is no doubt that they are a memorable tag team, and one of the most popular that WWE has ever had. However, neither of them has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Which poses the question: Is Demolition as a unit WWE Hall of Fame worthy? Sound off below.
