#4 The British Bulldogs win their first Tag Team Titles

The British Bulldog team of Davey Boy Smith and the Dynamite Kid had chased after the tag team titles for almost a year before they finally managed to cash in on an opportunity, winning their first Tag team titles at Wrestlemania II in the main event of the Chicago portion of the show.

The British Bulldogs had several matches against the Dream Team in the lead up to Wrestlemania II but were never successful.

However, at the show itself, the Bulldogs were escorted to the ring by their manager Captain Lou Albano and famous frontman of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne.

Both Smith and the Dynamite Kid were ahead of their time and would be a part of the core group that would usher in the new generation, as the Golden generation ended. The Bulldogs would use a quicker offense, but with incredible control that would become more common for wrestlers in more recent time.

While the end of the match seemed haphazard and out of nowhere, the reaction by the live crowd to the Bulldog's victory was incredible.

It was made even stranger when Smith and Dynamite Kid were outside of the ring as Mean Gene Okerlund interviewed Captain Lou Albano and Ozzy Osbourne instead of the new Tag Team Champions.
