Named after Roman and Greek gods, Boston badasses Saturn and Kronus went from dominating the streets of Beantown’s “Combat Zone” to learning the ropes at WWE Hall of Famer Killer Kowalski’s wrestling school. It wasn’t long before The Eliminators caught the eye of Paul Heyman and began dominating ECW’s tag team division from the very start.
Mixing aerial ability with martial arts mastery, Saturn & Kronus spent their time in ECW racking up victories against top teams like Rob Van Dam & Sabu, The Steiner Brothers and “Dr. Death” Steve Williams & Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy. Utilizing a decapitating double-team finishing maneuver dubbed Total Elimination, the tandem may be best remembered for competing in the opening contest of ECW’s first pay-per-view, Barely Legal, winning the ECW World Tag Team Titles from The Dudley Boyz in what looked like a highlight reel. — J.S.
