Steamboat / Luger tag team

Hey Scott,

Given the recent focus on 1989 NWA, I remember a kayfabe interview in PWIwith Ricky Steamboat after Luger’s heel turn.

In the interview, Steamboat mentions that he and Luger were discussing forming a tag team.

2 questions:

1. Was this ever actually discussed as a real possibility?

2. Can you just imagine how awesome a tag team match would have been in 1989 with Steamboat playing Ricky Morton making the hot tag to Luger??

1.  Yes.  In fact this was a real thing that happened and they had a match together on TV and everything.  April 9 /89 in case that episode is on the Network.  
2.  I'm sure it was pretty damn awesome but I haven't actually seen the match to verify.  But here's their tag team output in 1989:
