The Dudley Boyz have joined forces with two former ECW heavyweights as they head into battle with The Wyatt's this Sunday night at TLC in a Tables match.
The inclusion of Tommy Dreamer and Rhyno has allowed WWE to begin calling this newly formed foursome 'Team Extreme,' but there is already a Team Extreme in WWE's history books.
HEADING TOWARDS A RIVALRY?
Matt and Jeff Hardy were two of the most prolific wrestlers on WWE/F's tag team scene in the late 1990s and early 2000s, during that time they were joined by Lita and were christened 'Team Extreme.'

During their time as Team Extreme, both The Hardy Boyz and Lita won gold and completely dominated their divisions in WWE until they were finally split up due to personal reasons.
The Hardy boys also faced The Dudley Boys, Edge and Christian in one of the best TLC matches of all time at WrestleMania 17, so the two tag teams already have history.
Could it be a ploy by WWE to bring the Hardy's back to WWE for one final match with one of the teams they found their fame competing against?
HARDY'S TO RETURN?
It has been speculated on social media and dirt sheets over the past few weeks that Jeff Hardy could be set to return to WWE when his current TNA contract comes to an end in 2016.
There has been no word on if Matt Hardy will follow his brother back to the place they both found fame, but the last word on Matt was that WWE was not looking for him to return, they only wanted Jeff.
Lita is already with WWE, working at the performance center and helping to recruit the stars of the future, the former Women's Champion would be easy to call upon if the plan was for Team Extreme to dust off their fighting boots once more.
It is strange for WWE to decide to call a new team by a name that already has a lot of history connected to it, especially one that the WWE Universe would easily recognize.
If WWE is setting up for a Hardy vs Dudley Boyz final WWE match, then this would be a fantastic way to build it up and it would be a swerve that not many fans would see coming.
What better way to help raise ratings than bring back three of the most popular superstars of all time?
