Demolition wrestles their final match as a team



Legendary WWE tag team Demolition had their last match as a team at a show on Saturday night for Keystone Championship Wrestling in Broomall, Pennsylvania. The three-time WWE Tag Team Champions have been on the independent scene for over 15 years. It may have been a last minute decision because the promotion made the announcement just hours before the show.

It would be nice if they could be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame but that doesn't seem to be likely, at least not in the immediate future because Bill Eadie (Ax) and Barry Darsow (Smash) were two of the wrestlers named in a 2016 class action lawsuit filed against WWE. The lawsuit alleged that wrestlers suffered traumatic brain injuries and WWE allegedly hid the risks of injury.

Demolition was considered one of the top teams of the late 1980's and they were originally brought in as clones of the Road Warriors. They turned babyface in 1988 and got over with fans because of their style, face paint and awesome theme song. The company began to phase them out after Crush replaced Ax and when The Road Warriors were brought in.
