Added DiffLines:

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: One of the reasons why Saturn left was that he was sick of Kronus, at some point describing him as a "lazy addict."


* ThereIsNoKillButOverkill: They once taped up The Gangstas who were on either side of an upright table and hit them with Total Elimination. That is what happened. Trying to ''describe'' how this looked may be impossible.

Perry Saturn (Perry Satullo born October 25, 1966) and John Kronus (George Caiazzo January 13, 1969-July 18, 2007) were an American ProfessionalWrestling TagTeam as The Eliminators. They formed in 1993 and debuted in Wrestling/JerryLawler's USWA. They arrived in Wrestling/{{ECW}}, where they really made their name. They split up in 1997 when Saturn left to follow Wrestling/{{Raven}} into Wrestling/{{WCW}}.


They were 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tn/uswa/uswa-t.html USWA World Tag Team Champions]] and 3x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/ecw/ecw-t.html ECW World Tag Team Champions]].



!! "These tropes have been TOTALLY ELIMINATED!":
* ArchEnemy: The Gangstas (Wrestling/NewJack and Mustafa), Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys
* {{Badass Mustache}}s: Just look at the picture.
* BaldOfEvil[=/=]BaldOfAwesome: After they defeated [[Wrestling/MickFoley Cactus Jack]] and Wrestling/MikeyWhipwreck for their first title reign, Wrestling/{{Francine}}, the manager for The Pit Bulls, told them how much she loved men with gold. This was a set-up for The Pit Bulls to attack and shave Saturn's head.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Kronus.
** Once during an Eliminators-Gangstas-Dudleys brawl, an umbrella turned up among the weapons and Kronus ran around with it open over his head. Indoors.
-->'''[[Wrestling/JoeyStyles JOEY STYLES]]''': "Well, it's not raining in here, but, who knows what's going on inside Kronus' head?"
** When they were walking to the ring for the opening match, against ECW World Tag Team Champions The Dudley Boys, at ''ECW Barely Legal'', April 13, 1997, Kronus turned to the camera and introduced himself to the [=PPV=] audience by randomly saying, "Ass, baby, ass! Hoo hoo!"
* DeathFromAbove:
** Kronus was 6'3, 255 lbs. and his signature was the 450 Splash.
** They faced Wrestling/DrDeathSteveWilliams and Terry "Bamm Bamm" Gordy at ''ECW High Incident'' on October 26, 1996, which had a [[GimmickMatches Scaffold Match]] between Wrestling/TommyDreamer and Brian Lee as the main event. The Eliminators hit Total Elimination on Gordy but, rather than simply go for the pin, Saturn climbed up the scaffold and dropped an ''ELBOW DROP FROM THE SCAFFOLD!'', and that got the pin.
-->'''JOEY STYLES''': "Perry Saturn is absolutely amazing! He's [[CrazyAwesome out of his mind]]!"
* FinishingMove: Total Elimination
* {{Lightning Bruiser}}s: Technical skill, strength, speed, aerial ability, they could do it all.
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Saturn and Kronus were, respectively, the ancient Roman and Greek names for the god of the harvest in Myth/ClassicalMythology. They originally wanted to name their team The Harvesters of Sorrow, but Lawler told them that people wouldn't get the mythological reference.
* WouldHitAGirl: They hit Total Elimination on Francine. She later said [[AnythingButThat she'd rather have a root canal]] than take Total Elimination again.
