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.”

— Former WWE stars The Gymini and Bam Neely now work as bouncers at the Space Odyssey night club in Tampa, Florida. All three individuals no longer wrestle.

— Actor Dennis Haskins of Saved by the Bell fame attended Sunday’s Raw live event in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He took a bow after being introduced to the audience.

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

    Air Jimmy ftw


      air=Evan Bourne boom=Kofi dynamite =boom
      #Team Dynamite Truth or who really cares in a nonexistent tag div in the 1st place? They need to bring back Cryme Tyme, reform Kings of Wrestling in WWE, and stop all these single debuts that form into a tag team b/c that formula is stupid. It used to be the other way around WTF happened?

    T & Kofi :p

  • lolsupimsogood

    They’re going to choose Air Truth and I’m going to face palm.

    • Waldo

      eh Air Truth is still a better name then Air Boom


        that’s a matter of opinion…mine is Air Boom>Air Truth, but I thought air rep’d Evan and Boom rep’d Kofi…They should have Evan and Rey tag together now that I think about it. Evan/Rey=Violent High, High Five(too much like DDP though), or Suspended High

        • Guest

          Evan/Rey=Contact High, Natural High, Euphoric High, High Society, or 1 More Strike
          Truth/Kofi=The Ugly Truth(not sure how this relates to Kofi), Hairy Truth, Explosive Truth, True That, Not True, True Blue, True Grit, True Hit, Nubian Essence, or Cryme Tyme 2.0(what a ripoff, not to mention stereo system)

          • tinwood

            haha 1 more strike

      • morrisonfanone

        Anything is better then Air Boom. Or Air Bourne for that matter.

  • Waldo

    i really hate make shift midcard tag teams… also Air Jimmy all the way

  • indywrestler22

    Really what does a name matter?WWE puts NO stock in their tag team division whatsoever.

    • Fighter

      Actually WWE was aiming to make something of their tag division last year when Kofi and Evan were tag champs. And at that time you could have seen they were trying. Then Evan got suspended, they also had eyes on a Miz/R-Truth (which was a good pairing) tag team to feud or take the titles from Air-Boom, but Truth got suspended. This was actually the start of a Miz downfall with constant losses, that followed after TLC.

      Yes I believe WWE is trying once again to start rebuilding their tag team, they had a good plan in my opinion last year and it all collapse thanks to Evan Bourne and then R-Truth for getting suspended.

      Yeah in the past and even recently WWE paid little attention to their tag division, however during that time that Air-Boom was champs, WWE was trying to rebuild their tag division before the plan went to the dogs.

      • indywrestler22

        There is truth (no pun intended)in what you say,but I meant actual tag teams, not just people WWE throws together b/c they have nothing else for said people to do at that time/storyline.

    • morrisonfanone

      Maybe they’re going to start trying? We can hope.

  • TheSwiftKicker

    um, isn’t the Air part of the name what was attached to Evan Bourne? Boom was Kofi’s half… so Air Jimmy and Air Truth mean nothing… stupid WWE… how about Nation of Domination? oh, wait, that is taken… how about Doom… of wait, already done…

    • CJCarter

      How about “Two Guys That We Didn’t Have Anything Better For, So We Stuck Them Into A Tag Team”?

      • morrisonfanone

        That’ll work. Make it three guys and involve Lil Jimmy.

        • CJCarter

          Defend them under the Freebird Rule, it can work.

  • Mr_Shrimp_Vendor

    I’d say call em’ Heart & Soul or Hustle & Flow, but I imagin that’d be too stereotypical for today’s wrestling fans…plus WWE never likes to use names that actually sound decent unless they absolutely have to anyways, not to mention those aren’t options in this poll (damnit lol). ;) So looks like Air Jimmy will be their name from here on out.

  • http://twitter.com/DA_Righteous1 Brian Clark

    What about R-Truth and Kofi Kingston. They don’t need a fucking name.

    • http://www.facebook.com/john.m.hall1 John Michael Hall

      Air Jimmy? Yeah, great name, WWE. Why don’t you bring back Nash, team him with Zack Ryder, and call them the Woo Woo Woo World Order?

    • qwertyboy

      All teams need names. Would remove NFL teams’ names and call them by the members’s names instead? Douche.

      • http://twitter.com/DA_Righteous1 Brian Clark

        I told you to fuck off in one post and you get butthurt and troll my other posts. Good for you, you don’t have a life. Good day sir.

        • qwertyboy

          Huh? Don’t flatter yourself. What you’re saying is I made an equal number of posts to you… What does that say about your life? I am posting during RAW… Also I did agree with the only good point you’ve made on this forum. I believe it was you that was butthurt after my response to your original rebuke: “fuck off”.

    • Jmc60

      I agree

  • qwertyboy

    ‘Hang Time’ to later feud with Crime Time

  • wwetnadudez

    Truth in Paradise, all the names are crappy as shit but this is probably the best one of em all

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Matthew-Whisenant/505631442 Ryan Matthew Whisenant

    Hmm last time fans named a tag team Kofi was in he got screwed out of the tag title because of borne hope this time will be better Air Jimmy all the way xD

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Matthew-Whisenant/505631442 Ryan Matthew Whisenant

    Hmm When Rey and Evan come back they can tag team and their names could be the Violators :P

  • Forceton Banfodder

    How bout calling themselves “Flavor of the Month” because that’s what they are.

    • Cottrell Atwood

      I agree lol or the darkness brothers

      • morrisonfanone

        My dad said the black connenction. I told him that wasn’t a good one. Racist reasons.

        • Cottrell Atwood

          lol i think it’s funny

        • Cottrell Atwood

          my brother said they should be called the turd monkeys which is hella Racist lol I think they were thrown together just cause lol he don’t like Kofi to much I think Kofi is alright and truth is talented

          • morrisonfanone

            I just couldn’t believe out of everyone on the planet, it had to be my dad that said it. It was very racist.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    “Truth in Paradise” just reminded me of the time R Truth got suspended for smoking synthetic weed and it made me laugh…so if they ended up calling themselves that I’d crease everytime they came out…xD



  • GreatRedBeard

    They’re going to do what they did last time: ignore the fans’ choice and go with the lamest option.

  • GMpunk

    They need the tag champs to be named the Kings of Wrestling..

  • http://twitter.com/StupidSobi SOBI

    JIMMY BOOM thats the name they will probably end up with

  • Kjhaltz

    S.O.S. Jimmy

  • GMpunk

    On a side not; it’s good to see Bam Neely and the Gymini doing well for themselves. This is why we must make it a point to go to college and attain further education. You may all now welcome me for this enlightenment.

  • Jasiu

    “Jamaican me crazy”

  • MyNational88

    Add Mark Henry, Alicia Fox, and Ezekial Jackson and call them “The New Nation”.

    • qwertyboy

      Nation of Racism/Segregation??

  • http://www.facebook.com/CLUB300 Joe Martinez

    How bout True Boom??

  • fatneal

    air jimmy is swag

  • Y2J 4 Life

    Jimmy in Paradise =)

  • pwnez

    Giving them a name isn’t going to make them relevant. They are still apart of a no nothing tag division.

  • K-Kool

    Air of Truth

  • qwertyboy

    The Legion of Boom

  • 3:16

    omg wwe just do it yourself

    • morrisonfanone

      That’d be too easy.

  • Cooker T

    Lil Jimmy’s Truth Flavored Coffee

  • morrisonfanone

    Air Jimmy. Definitely Air Jimmy.
