4. Steve Austin & Dude Love
Stone Cold was a sworn loner, but he needed a partner to replace previous unlikely ally Shawn Michaels. Mankind campaigned somewhat pathetically for the spot, only to be brutalized by an obstinate Austin every time he threw his hat (or leather mask) into the ring.
When Austin was going it alone with Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith, Foley alter ego Dude Love turned up, paying off the showing of Foley's old home movies on Raw many weeks earlier. Austin was still semi non-committal to Foley, but embraced him long enough for the team to thrive.
