From the moment professional wrestling diverged from its roots in catch wrestling to become an independent art form designed to maximise excitement for paying spectators, a whole world of possibilities opened up. Perhaps the most beloved and enduring of these - tag-team wrestling - offered fans multi-man matches where they could behind their favourite stables and often proved a special attraction in the burgeoning sport.

The WWE has a long lineage of tag team wrestling, with Luke Graham and Tarzan Tyler holding the honour as the first champions besting several teams in a tournament to win the then-WWWF World Tag Championship all the way back in 1971.

A total of 112 further teams would hold the original WWE titles before they were decommissioned in favour of what are now the WWE Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships.

You'd imagine that, with such an extensive history, all of the great teams to ply their trade in Vince McMahon's promotion would've gotten their stint with the belt - but that is not the case.

Several classic duos earned the adoration of the WWE Universe, but were never trusted with a run with tag team gold.
