Professional wrestlers Jesse "The Body" Ventura and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper starred in several action hits in the 1980s, like THEY LIVE and PREDATOR, but their big TV team-up never made it past the pilot stage! TAGTEAM stars Jesse Ventura and Roddy Piper as lovable wrestlers who get banned from the ring and become cops instead.
It's big, it's goofy, and there's a scene where a piano falls out a window and onto a totally different piano. But was TAGTEAM... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at the days when WWF/WWE wrestlers first entered the acting world, how times have changed, and why TAGTEAM might have actually been a huge hit if it weren't for behind the scenes shenanigans.
