: At WrestleMania XXV on April 5, 2009, Carlito & Primo Colon defeated The Miz and John Morrison to unify Smackdown’s WWE tag team championship with Raw’s World tag team championship.
: Edge and Chris Jericho were given a last-minute WWE unified tag team titles shot right before a scheduled title defense between The Colon brothers and Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes, thus creating an impromptu triangle match. Edge brought the match to an end once he pinned Carlito after a Spear to secure the unified tag team titles for himself and Chris Jericho.
: This was a triple-threat elimination match including CM Punk & Luke Gallows. They were eliminated first by Shawn Michaels pinning Punk, but then the Miz pinned Michaels to secure the tag team titles.
: Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre won the unified tag team titles in a tag team turmoil match which also included the former tag champs the Hart Dynasty, the Usos, Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov, and the team they actually defeated to win the tag titles Evan Bourne and Mark Henry.
: This was a fatal four-way elimination match which also included the former tag champs Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel, the Usos, and Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu. However, a timely distraction from John Cena helped Santino pin Gabriel to defeat the Nexus and secure the unified tag team titles.

After already becoming legendary figures in the AWA and the NWA, the Road Warriors move on to the WWF to absolutely cement their legacy. Of course they dropped the Road Warriors name and became known only as the Legion of Doom. They debuted in the WWF in July 1990 and instantly started up a war with the most obvious of rivals – the team of Demolition.
Since Justin and Scott have only reached 2003 in their reviews and any extra work added on them to watch the next forty matches would be difficult and just too much at this time of year (especially when they have their own awesome sports/wrestling/TV forum), I’ll be doing solo shots of the final three years of this ten part column. I want to thank Justin and Scott for ALL their hard work and dedication when they were just merely doing me a favor. Let me assure you, those two guys are good people.
Alright, enough of the man love. As I mentioned in the 2005 column, this is my 500th post here at the blog. The interesting part about that is this post is actually a repost of a column I did after covering all the 2006 PPVs for TheHistoryofWWE.com. Anyways, it’s really hard to believe I’ve spent this much time on a blog, but here we are two and a half years later. I hope you all enjoy this!
Let’s get to the year that was 2006. Read the rest of this entry
