Superstars pick their ultimate dream tag team - Seth Rollins and Andre the Giant form The Unbeatables (WWE.Com)

Everyone wants to join forces with their hero, whether it’s to battle the forces of evil or capture WWE gold on The Grandest Stage of Them All. WWE.com asked nine Superstars to reveal their ideal partners in crime, and then we made their wishes come true with a sample of what that fantasy squad would look like, presented by “Seventh Son,” the story of a legend and an apprentice coming together to defeat dark forces — in theaters Feb. 6. Some choices may surprise you, but each will have you wishing for a time machine.

Andre the Giant used his unmatched size to crush the competition during his legendary career. Nearly 25 years since Andre’s retirement, Seth Rollins is carving out his own legacy, but he’s doing it with his mind. The Eighth Wonder of the World found great success with a mastermind like Bobby “The Brain” Heenan by his side, so teaming up with an “Architect” like Rollins would stack the odds even higher.

Rollins on Andre the Giant: The dude is unbeatable, right? Why would you have anybody but Andre the Giant as your tag team partner? That’s just ludicrous. He’s a giant. He’s the Eighth Wonder of the World for crying out loud. You cannot beat him. I may not even have to step into the ring if he was my partner. I’ve seen him beat 2-3-4-5-6-7-10 guys at once. It wouldn’t even be a fair fight with him and me on the same team.

Man, this is about as sad a photo as it gets. Bobby Heenan, one of pro wrestling’s greatest talkers, has throat cancer. You can actually see the pain in Hogan’s eyes as he looks at his long-time friend. But, as Heenan said himself, “If the late, great Gorilla Monsoon couldn’t shut me up, cancer isn’t going to either!”
