The WWE Hall Of Famer was notoriously one half of one of WWE’s greatest tandems in the New Age Outlaws. Along with Billy Gunn, Brian James helped to further the legend behind Degeneration-X, but also made his own legacy alongside the current Daddy Ass.

Early in their run as a tag team, The New Age Outlaws did take on Hawk and Animal when the two were known as L.O.D. 2000.
