Welcome back to the Shameless 1980s Nostalgia Tournament. The premise is simple. We pit two awesome things from the 80s against each other and our expert panel of Nostalgia Profiteers decide which awesome thing is more awesome.
First Round Matchup #2 –
Tomax & Xamot
William “Refrigerator” Perry
The Crimson Twins were cooler than cool. Their psychic link may have been their down fall against the Joes in many a battle but who didn’t run around their neighborhood with their Best Bud pretending to Tomax & Xamot. First Choice when you started yelling out, “I’m gonna be…” no question.
But Refrigerator Perry was an absolute Cultural Icon in the 1980s. Music Videos, TV commercials, the most dominant defense in NFL history, the freakin’ Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 2 for pete’s sake, the guy was everywhere but it never felt forced. We wanted more Fridge not less.
Winner – William Refrigerator Perry
