What’s in a name? Apparently, everything. Kane and Daniel Bryan are perhaps one of the most exciting WWE tag teams in some time. But their name, Team Hell No, is a terrible name for a tag team.
In the WWE, image is everything. To make a real mark on the landscape of professional wrestling, you need a great name, since 10 years down the road, that’s really what most people are going to remember above all else.
Using Twitter to name Kane and Daniel Bryan was a fun way to involve the WWE Universe. Sadly, it has produced one of the least intimidating and perhaps worst names for a tag team in quite some time.
Team Hell No sounds like it came straight out of the Twilight movies. It’s a mash-up of a catchphrase and a theme. While Kane and Bryan are largely a comedy bit right now, the name does nothing but make them a running joke when they could actually be one of the more dominant WWE tag teams in history, even with the funny bits.
There have been some wonderfully named tag teams in WWE history, names that reflect the wrestlers themselves or provide a bit of intimidation. Not all of these teams have been great teams, and there are many more than what is listed here, but they all had great names.
