In some ways Ron Harris & Don Harris were a journeyman tag team, but the identical Harris Twins did have a certain level of success in the two largest wrestling promotions in North America. They were at their biggest in the WWE, as Skull & 8-Ball, members of, and then appropriated the name as the Disciples of Apocalypse. In WCW, they were the unfortunately named Patrick and Gerald (a play of Patterson & Brisco in the WWF) as Creative Control, but under their own names they did win the World Championship there. As they were saddled often with silly gimmicks (Creative Control, Blu Twins etc.) it makes sense that they were just themselves, which was not that far from their DOA persona, they would probably have been more successful.

  • Why they will get in: They wrestled everywhere of note in the 1990’s in the United States.

    2.   Opened Wrestlemania 11 with a loss to the Allied Powers (4/2/95)

They're well-known in the pro wrestling world as neo-Nazis. They won't ever get in.
