After only one year together on the main roster, Enzo Amore and Big Cass might be headed for a breakup if this angle involving Enzo's mystery attacker angle is any indication. Of course, Cass is bound to be revealed as the assailant sooner rather than later, forcing yet another popular tag team to part ways before they even came close to reaching their full potential.
Most tag teams break up at one point or another, it's just the way wrestling works. However, Enzo and Cass have barely scratched the surface of what they can accomplish as a tandem on Raw. In fact, they have yet to win a single set of tag team titles, so splitting them up, at least at this point anyway, is pretty premature.
Needless to say, they are far from the first duo in WWE's illustrious history to meet an untimely fate, as this has been a trend dating back years. Just as a tag team starts to hit the peak of their popularity, they are broken up, and it could be for a variety reasons. Whether it was because Vince McMahon saw singles potential in one of them or because nothing was being done with them creatively, their run was cut short when in reality it should have lasted a lot longer.
Either way, it doesn't take away from the fact that they should not have been split up when they were, with these ten talented tandems being prime examples.
10. The Bella Twins
There were very few points in their eight years on WWE's main roster together that The Bella Twins were separated, and when they weren't on the same side of the squared circle, they were feuding. Although they briefly parted ways in the weeks preceding WrestleMania 25 (only to reunite coming out of the event), their first official breakup occurred at SummerSlam 2014 when Nikki Bella "shockingly" turned on her sister Brie.
Of course, it wasn't shocking in the slightest. In fact, just about everyone watching that night knew the turn was coming, and it wound up being the absolute worst thing to happen to the duo. Granted, it was high time both Bellas branched off into singles competition and established their own identities, but their feud was unbearable to watch unfold that fall.
Who could forget the classic "I wish you died in the womb" line? Or the atrocious "Growing Up Bella" promos from Nikki? On top of it all, the entire rivalry was for naught when they reunited at random at Survivor Series with zero explanation as to why. If nothing else, they were better together than they were apart, at least when Brie was still wrestling regularly.
