Tag Team Appreciation Month: The Moondogs. Rex, Spot, King, and a Whole Litter of Crazy Canines.

Some dogs are known for having a bark that’s worse than their bite, but not the tag team known as The Moondogs, three of the roughest and toughest competitors to step into a WWF ring during the late 1970’s and 1980’s. Originally comprised of the stars Rex and King, an unlikely event would see a Moondog replaced by a new and equally ferocious one. In one of wrestling’s most interesting character changes, one of The Moondogs would take on a new role but be forced to abandon it due to the fans recognizing them from their time in The Moondogs team.
