The Nasty Boys are a famous Professional Wrestling tag team, made up of Jerry Sags and Brian Knobs, or simply Knobbs and Saggs. To put it simply, they were two big, burly street thugs with mullet-hawks who developed a reputation for their intense brawls and brash attitudes (as well as being particularly stiff workers). They debuted in the AWA in 1986, and have made appearances in most of the major promotions of the last couple decades, including WWE, WCW and even TNA. They are 1x WWE World Tag Team Champions and 3x WCW World Tag Team Champions.
As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.
WE'RE GONNA NASTISIZE THESE TROPES!!!

Schyster), Cactus Jack, Maxx Payne, Kevin Sullivan, Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray), the Stud Stable (Col.

- Badass Longcoat: Worn frequently to the ring.
- Bash Brothers: In the ring and apparently in Real Life. They once hospitalized Ken Shamrock after a fight in a hotel room.note
- The Brutes
- Cool Shades
- Fat Bastards: They did not have the classic wrestling physiques.
- Finishing Move: The Trip To Nastyville; a powerslam and elbow drop.
- Garbage Wrestlers: In their defense, the big brawls they had with Cactus Jack and friends in 1994 WCW were considered the pinnacle of their career.

- Impossibly Tacky Clothes
- Improbable Hairstyle
- Jerkass: They were the same characters everywhere they went - big, loudmouthed bullies. Take this vignette for example!
- They also have a reputation of being this in Real Life, though YMMV on this.
- Large Ham: Every backstage interview was a tour-de-force of scenery chewing.
- Long Runner: Jerry and Brian have known each other since childhood, and have rarely been apart throughout their entire careers. Careers, by the way, that are pushing 30 years each.
- No Indoor Voice: Holy shit did these guys love yelling. Even in their good moods!
- No Name Given: During most of their WWF run, announcers would refer to Knobbs and/or Sags as "one-half of the Nasty Boys," without identifying who's who.
- Parts Unknown: "Nastyville."
- Put on a Bus: Disappeared from WCW in early 1997 after Sags beat the hell out of Scott Hall for real at a house show (non-televised event) in Arkansas. Knobs returned in mid-1999. Sags would not have a nationally televised match again until they debuted in TNA in 2010.
