WWE Asking Fans To Name Tag Team Champs, WWE Stars Remember Owen Hart

— issued a poll Monday asking fans to name WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston and R-Truth. Voting options include Air Truth, Ka-Boom, R-Boom, Truth in Paradise and Air Jimmy

— Today would have been Owen Hart’s forty-seventh birthday. He died on May 23, 1999 when an equipment malfunction occurred during his entrance from the rafters of Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri at the World Wrestling Federation’s Over the Edge pay-per-view event. Two WWE Superstars with ties to the late wrestler are remembering him on his birthday.

Natalya wrote on Twitter, “Remembering Owen Hart today on his 47th birthday. We are all just waiting today for some crazy prank from Heaven:) (Photo)

Tyson Kidd added, “I watched@BretHart vs @ShawnMichaels at WrestleMania 12 (my favorite match) thanks to Owen Hart flying me in as a guest of his #owenmemories.”

— Matt Hardy appears for Xcite Wrestling on July 21 at the American Legion in Binghamton, New York. (Event details)

    I swear they were called The Hiphop Express during a match on Superstars… then again maybe I’m mis-remembering…

  • Swanton Bob


    put Ron Simmons with them and call them damn-nation

  • adam

    I think Ka-boom and Air Jimmy are pretty funny also RIP own. But i dont know if funny is what you wanna go for in naming a team. I cant wait till gabriel and kidd team together.

  • cory

    Hey the mark if it wasn’t for the heart family wrestling wouldn’t be what it is your a dumbass for saying someethin so stupid

  • This Guy

    JWA (Jimmy’s With Attitude)……

    R.I.P. Owen Hart, if you were still with us you definitely would be on a legends contract by now.

  • ICE

    the black guys we just stuck together

  • CM Mark

    What’s wrong with WWE creative? Are they too lazy or just too stupid to name these tag teams themselves?

  • The Killswitch

    How about a name that doesn’t just pick one word from their monikers and combine them together? God, WWE creative is far over payed.

  • hey

    bring the old titles back!! these copper ones look shite!!! people power

  • LVW

    I would pick Air What!

  • chronoxiong

    Air Boom 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dave

    That comment needs to be aimed towards his widow. It’s down to her that he is not allowed to be mentioned on air.

  • Caca

    Little Jimmy in Paradise

  • Bill

    They definitely need to finally acknowledge Owen’s life on TV for once, so we can all remember the mercies we had of him.

  • Turd Ferguson

    The Niggar Family… or is that too obvious…

  • poko

    How about the WWE lets them come up with their own name for their tag team, which would help us believe that they aren’t just two singles wrestlers thrown together because they aren’t being used elsewhere at the moment. Let us believe that they have enough actual investment in the team that they want to come up with something representative of themselves, instead of a stupid-ass play on words. Give us something that lets us believe that this isn’t a gimmick team that won’t be together in a month’s time.

    Why do I get the feeling that if the Road Warriors debuted today, we’d have a poll up tomorrow asking if they should be called AniHawk or HawkImal?

  • Sammo

    The tag team should be called “WWE only paired us together because we’re both black”.

    Or maybe something catchier.

  • jackson

    These names are horrible. Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston were “Air Boom.” Evan “Air” Bourne was the “Air” part of the name. So is “Air Truth” and “Air Jimmy” R-Truth and Evan Bourne?? Dumb.

    Plus the fact that WWE puts belts on a tag team AND THEN decides to name them is ridiculous.

  • Jimbo

    How bad is it that I thought “Air Truth” because WWE would be dumb enough to suggest that, and here it is. Wow.

  • kirby

    How about the “Spooks” or better yet “The Porch Monkees”

  • Straight-edge

    put ron simmons with them and call them the new nation


    I Meant I dont give a shit and R-Truth


    Lets call them I dont a shit and R-Truth cause Kofi is crap and should be fired for screwing up the moves.

    @ Tyler

    Have you been watching for the past few years ? The crap storylines (most are) have been going on for a long time.

  • The Deadman

    Truth In Paradise sounds Pretty Sweet

  • Irish Bulldog

    I think Hip Hop Boom sounds good….Rest in Peace Owen you were a great one. I remembered that day like it was yesterday….My junior year in high school….can you imagine if he was still alive?

  • Tyler

    Has anybody realized that since Johnny boy has become GM of both shows wwe really is going down hill and by the story lines and how everything is going the WWE draft is going to suck

  • Tyler

    It’s going to be Air Jimmy just watch

  • Mark

    RIP owen, u are sorely missed

  • Tyler

    Air Boom Wannabes

  • D2K

    How about they get an actual tag team division together first. We’ll worry about names later.

  • Stevie P

  • nick
