The Bushwhackers (Butch Miller & Luke Williams)

The Bushwhackers (Butch Miller & Luke Williams)

Professional Wrestling may have a predetermined outcome, but athleticism has its place there.  This makes it all the more surprising that Butch Miller and Luke Williams really made it in the business after the age of forty.  Prior to their appearance in Stamford, they were known as the Sheepherders; a team known for their violent and bloodthirsty tactics.  In the WWE, Williams and Miller became the Bushwhackers, a comedy based tag team who never threatened for tag team gold but were one of the most over tag teams during their long duration there.  This type of long term popularity could earn them a Hall of Fame slot.

They were a popular comedy tag team and there's alwatys room for that in the WWE HOF. Which is too bad, because their legacy as one of the most savage tag teams ever tends to be forgotten. On a short list of the best teams to never win the world tag titles.
