The world of professonal wrestling has seen a lot of great and wonderful tag team's in it's history from the early stables of the four horsemen to newer tag teams like Jerishow and the Colon's but us fans have wondered which tag team really is the greatest of all time? I just have no clue to tell you who the greatest tag team is of all time but I believe that I have narrowed the list down to five tag team's thus creating this slide show for you the wrestling fans in order to see what you guys think is the greatest of all time is. I want you fans to be brutally honest on this because it took me a while to come out with this list since there has been so many great teams in pro wrestling.
Back in the 1980's, when WWE purchased Stampede Wrestling from Stu Hart, the WWE thought that they were getting some really good talent in the deal. Bret Hart was a focal point of the deal and when he came to WWE, he was a jobber at first because nothing creatively came along until they put Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart togeather as a tag team with Jimmy Hart as their manager. The Hart Foundation was formed in order to create a well blended togeather tag team of technical abilitie and power house moves. The WWE had no idea what they were going to get out of these two but it was magical because the Hart Foundation became one of the greatest teams of all time. This tag team won the WWE Tag Team titles twice and really had wonderful matches agianst teams like The Britsh Bulldogs, Nasty Boys, The Rockers, and many other hall of fame worthy teams. After the split of these two guys, Bret Hart went on to become one of the greatest wrestlers of all time while Jim went down the path of molding Owen Hart in his main event run in 1994. This Tag Team was amazing to watch in the ring and thus making them one of the best tag teams of all time.
The Road Warrior's were the tag team of the year seven times in the 1980's into the 90's because of their sucessful runs in the AWA, WCW, and WWE. Folks know these men for their awesome entrance attire, the face paint, and the "what a rush" Hawk would say in the entrance song. The one great attribute that these two men had though was their wonderful matches they had throughout their career against some legendary teams mind you. The Road Warrior's have been tag team champions an amazing ten times throughout their career as a team, they also were the tag team of the decade for the 80's, and they were champions in every company they worked in. People loved this tag team and they are known as WWE legends, maybe one day soon we can see this tag team in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
Here is a tag team that has really done it all and like the Road Warriors, they have been tag team champions in every promotion that they have worked for. Team 3D has been a tag team since 1996 after they had fueded in ECW. They were known as the Dudley Boyz for eleven years and they were also know as some of the toughest dudes in the wrestling industry. These two men really defined what a tag team is all about when it came to sucess and innovation. Team 3D has done it all when it comes to titles by being the 23 time tag team champions and being a part of some innnovated matches like Tables Matches, Triangle Ladder Matches, and even the TLC matches. People love wrestlers that stay dedicated to being successful and this team has been that by having some amazing matches agianst some awesome tag teams. I know people may harp on them for never achieving a singles career but man as a team, these two are one of the greatest teams of all time.
ECW was known for some hardcore wrestling and some smash mouth physical action each and every night the ECW went out of their way to give their fans some of the greatest action in the wrestling busisness. The Impact Players were one of the best tag teams that the wrestling industry has ever seen because of their awesome matches and some of the best promo's that any body had seen in a long time. Lance Storm and Justin Credible were two time ECW tag team champions in their short but brilliant run in the ECW. People loved them because of their in your face promos and their excellent in ring work. They may not have been the longest running tag teams in the wrestling industry but they are one of the greatest.
The Hardy Boyz have been known for their crazy high flying style and some of their extreme moments throughout their run as a tag team. This brother duo has been tag team champions seven times throughout their tag team career and they have been a part of some great matches and fueds against teams that are legendary ( Dudley Boyz, Edge and Christian, APA, and Many Others). This has been one of the few teams in which both brothers have went on to have very sucessful single's careers weither it was in TNA or WWE. Matt and Jeff have really elevated what tag team wrestling really is and that is why they are known as one of the best tag teams of all time.
Now I know that there are a lot of tag teams that I left off the list because of they wern't the best in my mind but that is strickly my opinion. I love tag team wrestling because it brings in a new wave of momentium into a show and can really showcase more than one wrestlers ability throughout the match. I still want you the fans to place your imput in the comments box below this slideshow and tell me what you think is the best tag team of all time. I know I cant ever narrow that one down but please let your voice be known and thank you for reading this because it means a lot to me.
