The Jurassic Powers was a professional wrestling tag team that competed in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The team consisted of Scott Norton and Hercules Hernandez.

History[edit]

The Jurassic Powers first form in March 1993 when Hercules entered New Japan.[2][3] The two spent the first few months in the midcard as they took part in six and eight man tag team matches.[3] Eventually they began to climb the rankings and they defeated The Hellraisers on August 5, 1993 to win the IWGP Tag Team Championship.[4]

After winning the titles, The Jurassic Powers would hold them for 5 months and make 3 successful title defenses against the Hellraisers, Hiroshi Hase and Keiji Mutoh, and The Nasty Boys[5] as well as non-title victories over The Japanese Jolly Jacks and Brutus Beefcake and Jake Roberts.[6] the team also entered the 1993 Super Grade Tag League and would ultimately be the runners-up as they lost to Hase and Mutoh in the finals.

The team would finally lose the titles back the Hellraisers at Battlefield on January 4, 1994.[7] After the title loss, the Jurassic Powers would make few appearances as a team, they eventually made their last appearance as a team in a losing effort against The Steiner Brothers on August 4, 1994,[8] after the loss they split up as Hernandez left New Japan.
