Whether you call them The Road Warriors or The Legion of Doom, most people refer to them as the greatest tag team of all-time.  Hawk and Animal accomplished the unprecedented feat of winning tag team gold in three different wrestling promotions (AWA, NWA/WCW and WWE) that were nationally televised in America.  In addition to their in-ring success they spawned a slew of imitators including The Powers of Pain, The Blade Runners (later to be known as Sting and The Ultimate Warrior), as well as WWE's longest reigning tag team champions, Demolition.

The following is a timeline for the AWA, WCW/NWA, WWE, and TNA careers of The Road Warriors.  In addition to their tag team career, I have also included the singles matches of Hawk and Animal. Listed below is every pay-per-view match (excluding battle royals in which he was not involved in the ending) and title change that they been involved in.  Bolded items represent title victories while italicized items represent title losses.
