7 Best WWE Tag Team Rivalries Of The Past Decade

Where does The Usos Vs. The New Day rank?

Usos New Day

Tag team wrestling in WWE has enjoyed a mini-revival over the last 12 months.

From NXT to both main roster shows, fans have been treated to a standard of matches and storytelling not seen since the golden age of tag team wrestling in the early 2000s, when The Hardy Boyz, The Dudley Boyz and Edge and Christian made the division must-see TV.

Leading the way in 2017 are The Usos and The New Day. SmackDown Live’s two premier teams produced a Match of the Year candidate with a brutal Hell in a Cell encounter on Sunday, as Jimmy and Jey regained the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships. It was the fourth time that the titles had changed hands between the two teams since 23 July 2017.

Their truce on SmackDown this Tuesday night, and the crowning of new number-one contenders - Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable - signalled the end of their summer-long rivalry, which ranks as one of the best the tag team division has seen in many years.

Which other feuds over the past decade are responsible for this tag team renaissance?
