In WCW, Mark Canterbury and Dennis Knight wrestled as the Texan duo of Shanghai Pierce and Tex Slazenger, a mid level heel tag team that rarely picked up the big win. The pair migrated (kayfabe) to Arkansas when they joined the WWE and became hog farmers – The Godwins. The hillbilly gimmick may have seemed dated, but they got it over as both faces and heels and were given more chances to succeed under Vince. Knight would later wrestle as a solo as Mideon (though we are trying to forget his naked alter ego), and though his won loss record was not spectacular, he was always on television. As former two time Tag Team Champions, they may not be as much of an outside shot as originally thought.
