Hold up. Don’t post that comment just yet. Before you cover the WWE Universe’s Facebook wall with missives like “What about Harlem Heat???,” take a moment to read the guidelines the WWEClassics.com team followed when compiling this list.
1. Only WWE teams were eligible. Meaning no Gangstas, no Sting & Lex Luger and no Mulkey Brothers.
2. Teams were rated only on their accomplishments while in WWE, so the achievements of The Steiners in the NWA had no bearing on their placement (or lack thereof) here.
3. Eligibility began with the first recognized World Tag Team Champions, Luke Graham & Tarzan Tyler, who won the titles on June 3, 1971.
4. Rankings were based on everything from longevity to cultural impact. Personal biases may have also crept in, as witnessed by an extended argument over the significance of Tony Garea & Dean Ho.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, here are the 50 greatest tag teams in WWE history, presented by Totino’s!
