10 Awesome WWE Tag Teams Formed By Main Eventers

Sometimes a great partnership is born out of a great rivalry!

While the doubles division in professional wrestling can often help alleviate the pressure of having a large roster, it has also been responsible for launching the careers of numerous superstars such as Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart, Shawn Michaels, Booker T and Edge, who after getting over as part of a successful tag team, were able to carry their popularity into a singles run and go on to become World Champions.

However, sometimes the opposite can happen. If by some twist of fate a couple of popular ex-main eventers find themselves without an interesting storyline, rather than put them in a mid-card angle that sees them go one on one, the decision is often made to pair the two up and form a super tag team.

While this hasn’t always been a complete success (ahem, Hogan and Edge) there are plenty of examples of when two big-name players have stood in the middle of the ring and clasped hands in a Carl Weathers and Arnold Schwarzenegger style handshake, forming a team that was so epic, it brought the words ‘this is awesome’ from the lips of wrestling fans around the world - long before that annoying chant became a thing.
