Rising to the pinnacle of the tag team ranks by 1991, it was Wrestlemania VII that would mark the apex of The Nasty Boys WWF career. Overcoming the efforts of The Hart Foundation that night, The Nasty Boys would spend much of 1991 as the reigning WWF Tag Team Champions of the world.
You’d be surprised to know the origins of The Nasty Boys. Born Brian Knobs and Jerry Sags, the duo were in fact childhood friends whose similar dream of wrestling professionally actually became reality. Although champions in their own right, The Nasty Boys in ring skills left many to question their legitimacy as wrestlers, as Mick Foley recalls The Nasty Boys were, “sloppy as hell, and more than a little dangerous.”
Engaging in numerous feuds with top talent from the Legion of Doom and Harlem Heat to Money Inc. and the NWO, The Nasty Boys never did reach the same acclaim they obtained in 1991. Although their legacy remains intact as a quintessential example over the top characters that exemplified the WWF in the early 90′s.
