Tag team wrestling has a long and storied history in the WWE, dating back to when Luke Graham and Tarzan Tyler were crowned the first-ever World Tag Team Champions on June 3, 1971.
The titles would remain active for nearly 40 years, until the World Tag Team Championship was quietly retired in August 2010 and merged with the WWE Tag Team Championship, originally introduced in October 2002 as Smackdown's exclusive doubles title during the brand extension.
Tag team wrestling has always evolved with the times; in the 1980's the likes of the Hart Foundation and The British Bulldogs gave us technical masterclasses in teamwork, the 1990's saw a more entertaining form of tag team wrestling ushered in by teams like The New Age Outlaws and The Rock and Sock Connection, and the 2000's gave us the groundbreaking stunt matches featuring Edge and Christian, The Hardys and The Dudleys.
In recent years, the division was neglected to the point of obscurity before a surprising renaissance led by the hugely-entertaining Team Hell No.
Thinking of all the great champions to hold tag team gold in the WWE inevitably got me thinking about some of the terrible duos that captured the belts, and that serves as the basis of this article.
My recent article on the WWE's worst-ever world champions generated a lot of debate (and more than a little criticism!) in the comments section and I feel that this subject is just as interesting. So read on to find out who, in my opinion, are the worst tag team champions in WWE history!
